  1. A customer

    Great bit of kit.

    My daughter is registered blind, this gadget is fantastic, she has a large collection of us stocks and this bit of kit works first class for her, would recommend both seller and item

  2. CL

    Excellent player of USB music

    It’s a delight, so simple to use with great sound quality. I can quite easily pair it, using Bluetooth, with two of the Bluetooth players I have, viz the Bose Wave SoundTouch IV and the recently purchased Antimi Bluetooth Speaker

    As someone who tends to have many “albums” or folders on one USB, I particularly like the facility to “skip folder” and to move each track forward or backward.

    I notice that the battery life is just over five hours when using it as a Bluetooth player, and I would have been prepared to pay more for, say, ten-hour playing time. A refinement to make it truly excellent would be a small display of folder and track number of the music being played, perhaps with an identification of the music (like I get on my car radio/USB system.)

    Nevertheless, as it is, I can recommend it readily; it’s a little marvel really.

    Excellent.

  4. Nat

    Great quality

    Brought for a visually impaired teenage boy. Sound quality is great. He navigates himself well around it. He has a daisy player in his bedroom so this is great for when he’s out and about

    Perfect for someone who is blind or partially sighted. Very easy to use and build quality is great.

  6. ac

    all was good

  7. Louise Fearn

    This is an amazing device. I am dyslexic and have trouble reading small print and large chunks of text as I get very tired and have to concentrate with the words fizzing and jumping about. I much prefer audio content and thus is so portable and easy to use. I can take it everywhere with me and link it to Bluetooth speakers and all types if headphones. I love the bright buttons, very eye catching and I won’t loose it in my bag. I love this little player!!! Thank you so much

    Serious player, just brilliant.

    This is a seriously nice piece of kit. I was cautious given the price but it is worth every penny. Put simply this is the best sounding, best built MP3 player I have owned. Having been through a few of the cheaper players on Amazon and found them poor quality and/or tricky to use, I thought I would give the Solo a go. What a revelation. I use it for audiobooks at home and music when I am in the gym. The sound quality is excellent, Bluetooth easy to pair and rock-solid with both my Sony and Audio Technica Bluetooth headphones. The buttons and mechanical controls are a breath of fresh air and although I am fully sighted it is a pleasure not to have to look at the Solo and easy and intuitive to operate when in my pocket. High-quality USBC charger is included instead of the usual charging lead. Highly recommended.

  9. Derek Taylor – Reading

    There is a real gap in the market for this type of device, operationally it’s excellent. Using ordinary headphones the output quality is great, the overall quality is good.

    Carrying the device around whilst doing odd jobs around the house is a real plus

    There is a real gap in the market for this type of device, operationally it’s excellent. Using ordinary headphones and the output quality is great, and the overall quality is good.
