Protective gear for MP3's
However, MP3 players are not as rugged. They have a higher level of delicacy in the technology and build. Thus, dropping your MP3 player even one time could be a cause for a trip to the repair shop. That also means that if you don't have insurance, an added cost.
Here is a scenario to get your mind going:
You are heading out for a nice walk around the local mall, or hardware store. You have you wallet, your tunes (MP3 player) and your mind set on what you are looking for. You have on your favorite walk around Levi's on.
You tuck your MP3 into your back Levis pocket. Then you are off. You sit down in your car and hear crack.
Now that is the MP3 player screaming for help. You either just bent the case, or you cracked the LCD screen. Now it must be sent in for repair. This is one of the most common repairs that occur for MP3 players.
Other than the all to annoying " I sat on my MP3 player" There is the "Ooops, I dropped my MP3 player". This result is broken pieces, cracked screens, damaged devices, and much more.
Ok, so you already know that there are many ways to break an MP3 player. What can you do to protect that expensive little device that brings you hours of pleasure?
- The case. There are thin clear plastic covers for the MP3 players. This thin cover protects from basic bumps, scratches etc. It will run you around $20 and is a great saver in many situations. Well worth the money.
Whichever the case, it is better to provide yourself and your MP3 player with the protection you can. It is either that, or is prepared to pay for repair or replacement. This is some of the protective gear that is available for MP3 players. It is still a good idea to check out the extended warranties. However this is a good way to get you into the right direction of protecting the devices that are great enjoyment.
