A Vision Shared

If you have read our piece on the psa (Portable Sports Audio) series of Nike-Philips MP3-CD players, then you would be very familiar with how their alliance, have resulted in the co-development and marketing of a new line of digital audio players that stress on usability and stability.

Besides the psa MP3-CD players, Nike-Philips are judicious enough to include a range of portable MP3/WMA players that weighs less and occupies less space - thanks to the use of clever design and energy efficient solid-state memory.

Adopting the same design philosophy as the psa line of products, you get the same urethane rubber, steel casing plus a few other surprises.

Read on to find out what they are. See the specifications below before going further into the review.
