For those of you that listen to music on the go, what is your MP3 player of choice? Mine is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze, mostly because it was cheap. :tomatoface:
BUT I also enjoy the fact that you can use micro SD cards so you can keep expanding the memory.

So what type of MP3 player do you use?

For some reason I enjoy using ipods, even if itunes sucks ass. I don't really listen to music on the go anymore though.

Pretty much anything thats easy to navigate with and play music for an extended period of time. Being able to hold most of my music library is nice, but not a requirement.

I currently use a Zune HD. I have an 2nd gen iPod Nano that I abused the hell out of. I would probably get a touch for my next one, should the zune ever die.

Ah, the Fuze! I used to own that until my brother lost it! Then I got the Fuze+ which is AN ABOMINATION OF MAN AND ERGONOMIC DESIGN THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE THE NAME 'SANSA' OR 'FUZE' ON IT.

But right now I have an iPod Touch 3rd Gen because Sansa currently doesn't have a good line-up of products, and no I'm not getting a Zune.

I have an iPod classic which serves it's purpose for almost 3 years already. I manage it using winamp because I found it far easier to use than iTunes.

I used to have a GoGear Cam that worked pretty well. That got stolen, though, so I'm stuck using my phone's crappy player right now.

Been using an old Zune for a few years. Things's built like a brick, even if the control scheme isn't the best. Certainly reliable, though. The software's okay for the most part, and tends to be less intrusive than iTunes. Too bad the Zune's fading out.

I'm messed with a handful of different brands over the years. So far the players I like the best are made by Cowon. They aren't exactly cheap though.

Ipod, its UI is pretty good over all, I just have a few issues with it ( cant delete songs on the go.)

But other than that 120gb is more than enough and Ive had mine for a long time, and It was used.

If you have a smart phone and a good data plan, this is a great solution.

If NOT I haven't found an MP3 player that I like as much as my iPod. Most have prettyyy bad UIs/library support (the HTC music app is especially bad). They're all pretty comparable price wise as well.

The iPod touch can also obviously do other things, but the iPod Classic/Nanos are still really solid.

I'd say the BIGGEST drawback can be iTunes, but not so terrible if you only use it for management.

This.

Although I'd love a new portable music device, I'm getting sick of having to transfer everything through an incredibly inflexible bit of dedicated software.

There's other ways to transfer stuff. Winamp, for instance.

Still using my seven year old Creative Zen Vision: M. It works just as well as the day I got it whereas if I had an iPod I am certain I would have had to buy multiples over this time period. It's durability reminds me of the old Game Boy. It's fallen onto concrete multiple times mid-sprint, skidding and/or tumbling at least 50 metres each time; been submerged under water for 5-10 seconds more than once (no not toilet); and been lost under snow for a few minutes. If it ever died I'd go with Cowon for sure - best sound and no iTunes. iPods are so overrated =|

I'll probably be using my PSP Go until I wear it out (which isn't yet showing any signs of wear and tear, even a full year after I got it)

I tried the winamp option before (read: 8 years ago), and I didn't like how it handled things. I'm not sure how much it has developed since then, but having to reformat the ipod and lose some of its features was just as annoying to me.
