    They seem to have gone the way of the dinosaur. Why bother with an old ipod-like device when you can stick everything on your phone which you always have on you anyway? Was curious if anyone is still using any old mp3 playing relics. I have a few old shuffles and players collecting dust. I used to like the 1st generation shuffle that had the usb connector built in (later versions required a separate cord). Would also like to hear old mp3 player favorite memories of any kind.

    I have way too many songs for a phone. Also like one function not interrupting the other. So yeah, ipod.

    I still use one. That's because my phone is older than Methuselah (at least in phone years).

    I have an old MP3 player that only holds like 100 songs, but I still use it when I work out. The thing is tiny and it has a good armband that holds it in place.

    My phone is the google nexus 6p and it's so big that it really bounces around and gets in the way while exercising.

    I have the 128GB ipod touch, which doesn't hold all of the music on my computer, but it's fine most of the time for what I want to hear.

    Yes, I have a Walkman with 60gb internal and a 128 micro sd. It's excellent.

    I have an ipod for running, dropped my phone too many times even while in the best cases made to stop just that.

    I got one too. I have 20 gb of music right now and that is only because I lost my old Ipod that had nearly 30. My phone would explode trying to carry that much music.

    Had a Cowon D2 I left in my car plugged into a tape-deck adapter, since the stereo has no bluetooth or AUX in. Yesterday the damn power switch broke off so now I'm stuck plugging my phone in like a chump.

    Good standalone MP3 players (at least Cowon's) shit all over phones for sound quality and output volume. But as always convenience > quality. They had a good run.

    The smartphone has made mp3 players, GPS units, and point and shoot cameras less relevant these days. It's nice having all the capability in one device. However, I can see the advantages of dedicated devices.

    When I go for a walk or jog I bring my ipod nano. I don't want to carry my phone while running. Also my phone is just a cheapish smartphone since I rarely use it. Never bothered to put music on it. Think it only has 8 gigs or something. Don't even know if I can put music on it from my Mac.
