Berennis D08 player is all about the looks, feel, and function at a very attractive price point!
Nicely weighted, well constructed metal device. Pleasing gold trim on a black surface around a large screen with lighted function keys and with large logo on back of the Player just below the speaker.
The main face of the player includes the screen and touch controls. The controls are very intuitive in their placement and function. After a few minutes, I was able to operate the player without reading the included instructions. For low light situations, the functional touch keys Lights Up when set to normal in settings.
On right side of the player are two solid full relief silver buttons. The top button has two functions, power device off/on and screen off/on. The player also has the ability to auto shut down by way of sleep feature. The bottom sliding button is a lock feature to lock/unlock your current player screen.
On the left side is a mic. The player can record in MP3 or WAV format, it supports playback in MP3, WMA,WAV, APE, FLAC,etc. It can record in 32KPS, 64KPS,128KPS and 192KPS bit formats. Also the device has the ability to record close proximity (5-8 meters) and it also can record over-the-air FM station.
The player also plays video in AMV format.
The bottom end of the player includes a plugin for headphones (also used as a FM antenna), a micro-SD card slot and a USB charge-file transfer port.
The player comes in a very nice decorative sturdy box—really no need to gift wrap! What is included in the box besides the player is a USB cable for charging or file transfer, a set of ear phones and user manual.
Features and functions are as follow:
Bluetooth 4.2. pairs nicely with Bluetooth headphones, BT ear buds, BT speaker Long use lithium battery. With a 2 hour charge, I was able to get 12 hours of continuus playtime. 16 GB internal memory, up to 128G external micro-SD card FM Radio – auto/manual search, FM station recording Recorder – voice recording, recording library, recording format mp3 or wav, manually set recording bit-rate. 5-8 meters recording range. E-Book – play setting, page up/down, font size, page color Data Transfer – move media files via PC with provided cable, can also be used as a flash drive (store any file)
In conclusion, Berennis has been able to produce a very good high quality flexible usable player at a great price. I would recommend this player to anyone.
I'm glad to see so many people hand out 5 star reviews like it's Halloween. Likely has something to do with the promised free gifts (there's a little coupon inside the box). As for me, I have started a return. Maybe if you do "playlists" and "random play" it's fine, but if you listen to recordings where the track ordering is important, this player will disappoint. Of course all my files are tagged properly. That's deal breaking, and in my opinion flat out non-functional, so it's on its way back to Amazon.
Frankly, all I wanted was a Bluetooth mp3 player. So I got a cell phone for $20 and it runs real media player apps like MediaMonkey and Plex, or whatever you find non-insulting. That's correct, you set it up at home with WiFi and you don't need a sim card. Saves money and sanity!
Purchased this MP3 player after reading many good reviews and I’m not disappointed! First off, the metal case is quite solid and durable, not plastic like some others. The screen/display is a decent size but not touch enabled. The “buttons” though, to right of the screen, are touch enabled and work flawlessly with a light touch. Easily loaded my music via usb cable attached to my Windows 10 laptop. The Player has a Bluetooth option which worked very well with some Bluetooth ear buds. It also sounded quite good through attached headphones as well as Klipsch desktop speakers. I was mildly surprised with the FM radio option which picked up most stations in the area with ease (even though I live out a ways) as long as you have ear plugs attached which doubles as an antenna. The FM recording option isn’t the best quality for music/songs but it’s decent and the recording can be saved as a .wav or .mp3 file. You can also choose the recording bit rate of 512, 768, 1024, or 1536kbps. I did notice that navigating in the menu while I was recording seemed to cause the volume to decrease a bit during that time. Other features include a Tools option which has a calendar, stopwatch, and alarm. The alarm can be set to play the default ring sound or a song in you library although it only plays about the first 15 seconds or so. You can set the alarm for a specific date, daily, or just on work days (Mon-Fri). There is also an ebook option as well as a movie (.amv only) option but haven’t tried either one of those. Overall, I’m quite pleased with this player and glad I chose it over some others I’d looked at!
I don't have a lot of experience with mp3 players as my last one worked for years until it couldn't hold a charge anymore , and you can't change the battery . I followed the instructions and got it set up , it did not take long at all .It took my laptop a while to recognize it so I could transfer songs onto it ,but it eventually did . The FM radio works as well as it can in my area ( radio reception is not so great where I live). I haven't tried the Bluetooth feature yet . My only complaints are it doesn't transfer the cover art when loading songs from CD's ( like on my Sansa mp3 player) , the only visual is a record and a tone arm ( like on a record player) and the tone arm goes onto the record when it is playing a song. My other complaint is the font of the text in the menu of the songs you have transferred . It looks like a typewriter wrote it .I realize I'm using some words that the younger people maybe won't understand but it's the only way to describe it . Other than those two things , it's a great little mp3 player.
this item is great! plenty of room on the drive plus a slot to add more storage space. and it has so many great features! i was looking specifically for a player with shuffle, which this has, but it also has a built-in speaker to play music out loud (genius) and a built-in radio. this item is chunky but not clunky, if that makes sense. it feels durable and well-proportioned, and it's much easier to navigate than other mp3 players i've tried.
update: after a few weeks of use, i just want to say that i've already adjusted to the differences between this item and my old ipod and i'm very happy with it. it has plenty of storage PLUS a slot for a memory card for more storage so i have no worries about running out of space. not to mention how long the battery life is! my old ipod would have maybe an hour and a half of playtime, but i've used this thing for HOURS without seeing even the first blip of the battery bar go down.
This is a fantastic little device. It is substantial -- metal case, well built, heavier than I expected, but a good thing. The instructions were clear/comprehensive. The UI is outstanding -- very easy to understand/navigate/responsive. Very nice touch to have the control buttons light up when you touch them so you can see that it recognised your touch. The equalizer does change the sound. Everything works better than I had expected! VERY happy with the purchase. The radio works as expected and sounds great. Haven't tried to connect to bluetooth yet but when I first started it did a scan for devices. Loaded up my music with no issues. Was able to create folders and found everything. Shuffle works as expected even can play by genre. AND the album art is displayed :)
At first, I wasn't all too sure about this player when I uploaded my music and it ended up being jumbled. After a few hours of sorting out everything on Windows Media Player and dragging it directly to the player from there, instead of offloading my old MP3 player's files to the new player, everything seems to be in order. The ability to add album art helps a lot!! I collect film soundtracks and have so far managed to add 60 albums-worth of content to this device with no issues. I kind of wish it didn't have the video or radio features, as those are functionally useless for this device, but that won't be much of a problem. The device even automatically pulls up the last thing I listened to, so I don't have to go outside of the Music file unless I need to change the settings.
I was going to return this thing but I started liking it. The paint is chipping off on the side and the screen looks terrible only after a couple of weeks but I don't see this thing breaking. Those are just cosmetics blemishes from wear and tear. I still don't like the preset EQ as there is too much bass in all the sets and not enough mids or highs. The button controls can be better also. It has some surprising features that I did not know about like the calendar, stop watch and an FM radio. It is a pretty nifty little player I just wish there was a manual EQ.
I purchased this MP3 player for my child's graduation gift. They have had it for about a week now, and they love it! They are always playing music with it, either with the headphones or without, having dance parties with their sibling or keeping themselves occupied with the music and headphones. So far it has held up well. I'm not sure how long it will last, but I hope it will last a while. I paid $26.78 plus tax for the "Warehouse Deal" from Amazon Warehouse, making it $28.72 with tax. Even if it only lasts a short while, at least we don't have too much money invested in it. I purchased this in "Used - Like New" condition from Amazon Warehouse, and that does appear to be accurate. It doesn't even seem like anyone has used it yet. Great value on this MP3 player! Thank you!!
Works pretty well overall. I'd like it a lot better if the battery icon didn't always display a fully charged battery. I never have any idea how much charge is left until it suddenly dies (still showing a full charge). As another review mentioned, the unlock process is needlessly prolonged but honestly locking it isn't really necessary. Just press the power button to turn off the display and the touch buttons won't accidentally activate in your pocket or anything. Can be difficult to operate in the dark as the buttons don't light up unless pressed.
Edit: I can no longer connect to my PC to transfer via USB. I've made sure this issue is the player and not my PC. This mp3 player is barely above useless.
