Read full SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip review
A top budget option, the Sandisk Sansa Clip Zip will attach to clothing, making it an obvious choice for sporty users. Even if you have no intention of running with the thing, it's a great little player, though. It supports FLAC, has expandable memory and an intuitive, snappy interface you can operate from your pocket thanks to its clicky physical buttons. The one significant downside is battery life - at just eight hours, it's a way below the competition.
