Has anyone seen one of these lately? Does anyone younger than 30 years old even know what a portable CD player is? In this article, we will have a look at portable CD Players. These gadgets were all the rage in the 1980s and are still available today. So if you have not digitized your CD collection, read on.

A portable CD player is a hard disc digital music player. The battery-powered portable CD players have a ⅛” headphone jack through which a person can attach a pair of headphones. The Sony Discman D-50 was the first audio player to be issued back in the ’80’s.

Basic Characteristics of a Portable CD Player

The play and pause buttons enable the user to pause in the middle of the track (song).  The back button (<<) allows you to move back to replay a section before the listener hit the Pause button.

The stop feature stops the track, so you can easily switch tracks. The fast forward (>>) and rewind (<<) buttons either advance quickly or rewinds the path for the time the button is held down. The fluid crystal monitor shows the amount of battery left, the track (number) currently played, and the time spent on the track.

Specifications that help you pick the right portable CD player

I. Assess the Weight

A streamlined unit has the smallest footprint and minimum weight. It can just take a couple of seconds to get to know the value of the CD player. Assume the weight by yourself and move to the next player in the store. The HOTT CD511 can be one of the choices for its lightweight making it easy to carry and convenient to have around with you.

II. Compatibility of the CD player

Confirm the player will be compatible with all the CD formats mentioned in its specifications. Check the model for all the advertised features. It must be compliant with various CD formats. The NAVISKAUTO portable CD player is rechargeable with 12 hours of playing time. You don’t need to have files converted to play. You save time and extra money when reading the original CD. 

III. The Right Power Cable is a Must

If you lose the power or charging cable the safest choice is to order the correct replacement from the manufacturer. It could take you hours to try to match the right power cable from other sources.

IV. Avoid Cheap Knockoffs and Counterfeit  Products

There is no shortage of cheap knockoffs and counterfeit products out there. Avoid this at all costs. Sure the price may be attractive at first glance, but it will cost you much more when the unit will need to be replaced. Buy a brand name and check reviews.  Remember that a portable CD player is all about audio so your prime concerns should be sound quality, support formats, and features. This will minimize the risk of making a disappointing purchase and allow you to focus on having an excellent audio experience.
