    This is definitely one feature filled MP3 player. You get 64 MB of CD quality audio at your finger tips. The $149 price tag isn't bad at all considering the SoundsGood originally went for over $250. The other MP3 player for the Visor, the 64 MB MiniJam from InnoGear goes for $269. Then again the memory on the MiniJam is upgradeable, but even then the SoundsGood is still a great value. The software that comes with the SoundsGood makes transferring files from your PC (sorry no Mac support) to the player fast and simple. The SoundsGood software is also upgradeable so you won't have to worry about it being left in the dust. It has its own processor to process MP3 files so the Visor isn't bogged down on that. This also enables it to be a standalone portable MP3 player using the EnergyClip accessory. Features say a lot about a product but they don't tell the whole story. Let's see how good the SoundsGood audio player actually is.
