I decided to go for an upgrade to the previous model Berennis. I'm sure someone in the family will want the older one as it still works fine! (The smaller one in the picture on the left is old model.) As you can see from the pics, the new one is bigger but it helps with the display and navigation. Hope my review helps you make up your mind whether to buy or not. I know when you are looking for the best bang for your buck items you have to worry about quality and reliability. I didn't have any quality/reliability issues with the older version and so far the new version is doing well too.
I know with cell phones MP3 players are not as in demand but I don't like to drain my phone for music. Phones are expensive so I prefer to wear out inexpensive MP3 players. I go hiking, backpacking and exercise so a smaller device is better too.
* The display is much improved. The menu shows more than 1 item at a time. Easier to navigate options.
* Song information is better. (2nd picture comparison)
* Bluetooth has improved and connects easier to my Bose Soundlink Mini. Old version I had to turn Bluetooth back on each time device is turned back on from power save mode to reconnect. New version auto-connects better.
* Has more features (calendar, stop watch, alarm, picture, movie, ebooks...)
* Long battery life.
* Body of device is durable. I use it regularly at work.
* Can take a micro-SD card but without it, it already holds hundreds of songs so may not need it. Unless you use it to store some pictures and videos.
* Came with headphones. They work decent. I'm picky on my sound so I use better and unfortunately way more expensive options to use with the player.
* Unfortunately the manual volume buttons on the side went away. :( It allowed for easier adjustment without having to quickly turn the device back on. Fortunately boot up is faster so less inconvenient. (Not that big of a deal.)
* What is missing that would be more handy than the volume buttons is a pause button on the side. I use this at the office and when people come up to me it would be more convenient to hit the pause then having to turn it back on (from power saving mode) to hit pause. I don't think any other brand has that option that I'm aware of so it would be nice if Berennis could add it. :)
Note: Be sure to read through the product manual. There is a sub-menu level that gives additional setting options in certain places. I wasn't able to figure something out and wasted time just trying to figure it out on my own. Save time!
If you're looking for a rather good MP3 player at-or-under $30, I have yet to find one that works as well as this one. The sound is good, the functions actually work as described, it's got a nice mechanical switch for the lock, and I suspect someone actually put in a good amount of effort into making this, and it shows. Even the English is pretty good! I've gone through nearly a dozen cheap players, and this one is the best I've found.
Long form version:
So it's 2014, and I want a dedicated mp3 player so I don't have to drain my phone's charge or disk space, something I can carry and wear around while exercising or working in the shop or mowing the lawn or whatever. My otherwise awesome Creative Zen X-FI had finally died. So I search for 'best mp3 players'.
Did you know some folks think their mp3 players are worth 600, even 800 bucks? In 2020? For a reality check, I searched for ipods, they're so a decade ago, so they'll be cheap, right - they're $200? What?
Every year since I've pretty much ended up grabbing a cheap ~$20 mp3 off brand mp3 player. Some have lousy range (like, jeans pockets = no connection to headphones), most lack settings you'd think were mandatory (playlists, shuffle, play music while doing literally anything else). Some had no internal storage, and others claimed to be 32 gb, but broke after storing 2 gig. Most of them sounded awful and skipped constantly.
So this year, my recent piece of cheaply made red plastic junk died and the manual ("look to on and then from lock with happy to see reset") was of no help, so I resignedly searched for something to replace it. I went big time this year and went up to $30 - I know, big spender.
So, enough of my backstory. What did I get? I got an actual decent piece of kit for the first time in half a decade! Yeah, surprised me too.
My initial observation was that it doesn't feel cheap. It's made from a pretty solid piece of machined steel, has a nice heft for the size, and while I didn't test it, it seems like it'll take a big of a knock-around before breaking. +1 right there.
I checked all the features it claimed to have: plays mp3s, shuffle, connects to bluetooth, playlists, speakers, radio, voice and radio recorder, equalizer, shows pictures, lets you read text files, and video. Apart from the video, it all seems to work as you'd expect. Let's cover the highlights:
The MP3 functionality works, and while the earbuds that ship with it are not the greatest, the speaker is loud enough and clear enough to be usable, and with a decent headset (bluetooth or not), it's perfectly clear, no skips, no static. As the pictures show, it also loads album covers if you're into that and put them in your folders.
It doesn't even pause or hiccup when you navigate around the device - it keeps playing the song. There's no third-party software to manage the playlists, and I'm still not entirely sure how they work to be honest. What I did find out is that if you put the songs you want to listen to in a folder, use the 'browser' feature to navigate to it and play any of those songs, and hit shuffle, it'll only play the songs in that folder. So, a poor man's playlist, but it works for me.
The Radio feature works fine, but it relies on having a (wired) pair of headphones to act as an antenna. Either it can't pick up a signal without that, or the functionality is simply disabled until you do plug one in, but neither the speaker nor bluetooth will play anything until you do. Seems silly to plug in headphones and then listen via bluetooth, but there you go.
The Ebook portion simply lets you read text files. It is not text-to-speech. Like the image and video functionality, I don't expect that it's something you'll end up using a lot.
Speaking of the video player, it claims to support avi/amv, and that does not mean actual 'avi' but rather, specifically, only the AMV format. I didn't waste a lot of time on trying to get this to work or converting my files. I assume it works, but I only ever got 'format error'. You don't usually buy an mp3 player to watch teeeny-tiny videos on anyway.
The equalizer portion isn't very detailed - there's just 6 settings, Rock, Funk, etc, with no description of what they do. I set mine on Rock, and it seems fine.
It charges from a bog standard microusb slot (cable included) so your standard 3.6-6v wall wart will work, or you can just plug it into a computer. There's a microsd slot, but I didn't have anything to test it with.
There's a mechanical switch on the side to lock the device, so you can slip it in your pocket and not accidentally skip songs or mess with the volume, but the power button itself is a soft switch (hold to power on/off).
All the instructions and in-device text is readable english, the only 'engrish' I saw was the bluetooth option screen which had "open," and "off," instead of "on," and "off", and that was easy enough to suss out.
The biggest not-really-a-problem I had with the device was that I kept thinking it was a touch screen, and it is not. You use the touch controls on the right to navigate.
The only real con I had was those playlists. Not only did the feature not seem to work as I'd expect, there's no way to access them - such as via the USB transfer - so I can't even try to modify them externally. Of course, since I found a workaround, I'm fine, and really this is a small issue for something I'm probably just going to put on "shuffle all songs," anyway.
Request to devs: Make the playlists appear in their own folder as text files, one file per line, name of the file is the playlist name. This is a feature no other mp3 player I've seen has, and it'd allow easy management and a simple third party program could manage it in a nice GUI.
I have owned between five and 10 players since mp3 became popular. The quality of the sound is smooth and the bass is not muddy. The unit is meant to be used horizontally as shown in my photos. The most remarkable thing about this little unit is the range of the Bluetooth signal. I have owned prior units that dropped out if my arm got in the way. The signal from this unit even goes around corners. The only feature that is not usable is video if you live in the United States. The video codec that it uses it used mainly in Asia. But, I did not buy his unit to watch video. I am totally satisfied with this player. At under $30 it is an exceptional value. Buy two while you’re at it, your wife could use one too.
I bought this MP3 player to replace my trusty SanDisk Sansa MP3 player that I've had for several years. I use an MP3 player almost entirely for its FM Radio recording ability, which this Berennis has.
The Berennis was well packaged, the MP3 player is about as wide as my hand, but feels weighty (metal casing), which gives it a premium feel. It is great looking and seems well made.
It boots up fast. Pressing and holding power button, the unit displays the main menu within 3-4 seconds. Much faster than my SanDisk.
The menu and controls are intuitive and I figured out most everything without reading the manual.
The control buttons are responsive, much better than the SanDisk I have. With the SanDisk, you must be precise with where you touch up, down, left right, play/pause, and back. With the Berennis, the touch zones seem to be defined much more accurately.
I recommend that you change some defaults:
- SETTINGS > set the date and time, and format of date and time
- RECORD > Record Format > MP3 Rec (default seems to be WAV, which stores much larger, not compressed, files)
- RECORD > Record Settings > set rec bitrate > 128kbps or 192kbps (default seems to be 32kbps, 128 or 192 should be fine for most uses)
After some quick FM Radio recording tests, it seems to record fine with good audio quality at 128kbps bitrate.
However, a couple things that it doesn't seem to do, but are definitely not deal-breakers, just some personal preferences that I have gotten use to with my Sansa SanDisk:
- The recorded filename format for FM Radio recording is FMREC001.MP3 (REC001.MP3 for voice recording). My SanDisk Sansa uses radio station and date in the filename for FM Radio recording: 91-5_122318_001.WAV So, that's 91.5 FM and date of 12-23-2018. I can live with this, it is just handier to have at least date in the filename.
- My SanDisk Sansa records in 2 hour blocks. So, for example, if I start recording and don't come back for 5 hours, then it will have saved two 2-hour files and is recording into the 3rd. This is handy. The Berennis appears to record continuously until you stop the recording yourself. I will do more testing on that front tomorrow. I may have to adjust to the continuous recording mode of the Berennis, not a big issue really, we'll see.
Overall I think this will be a great MP3 Player / recording device. It compares favorably to my SanDisk Sansa, has twice the on board memory (8GB vs 16GB), at about half of the cost of my SanDisk Sansa that I bought prob 5 years ago.
Overall, this is a very nice MP3 player. It feels very solid and substantial, like it should last for years. It comes with 16GB of internal memory but is expandable to 128GB. I have tested with a SanDisk Ultra 128GB MicroSD card and works fine.
Its primary function is to play music or other audio files. In this, it is an excellent piece of equipment. It sports an audio jack, Bluetooth, and surprisingly, a built-in speaker. The built-in speaker sounds very good considering the size and is nice if you just need to listen to something without breaking out your headset.
The headphones that were supplied were of no use to me. I am a big guy but the ear pieces were huge and would not fit in my ears. However, I have other headphones both wired and Bluetooth and all worked flawlessly.
Regarding the other features:
Video – This device only supports the AMV format which is more common in China. I was not able to find free software to convert regular movie formats to this, though there were several paid versions. I did get a TV show converted to the AMV format and it played fine and looked good.
Pictures – While the device does support JPG and BMP formats, this is mostly useful for seeing album or book covers.
Ebooks – The device only supports TXT which isn’t really an ebook format since it doesn’t allow any real formatting of the content. If you are looking for something like that, this is ok. While the screen is small, it does display the text in a readable way and it is easy to turn pages.
FM Radio – The FM Radio is a nice feature, but you need to be aware that wired headphones are required when using it as they act as the antenna. This may not be the case in a larger city, but in my rural area, it was absolutely necessary.
Overall, I would recommend this player for the price. It is an excellent music player and the other features are nice if you need them. I will likely buy several for Christmas for my grandchildren.
