What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer XDP-100R-S (Silver) 32GB Portable High Resolution Audio Player (Japan Import)
  • The sound is amazing and I'm able to transfer music and playlists from iTunes seamlessly after purchasing a 3rd party app.
  • This player has lots of adjustments to the sound. All kinds of adjustments not on any of my other players. It is sleek and well built.
  • Wonderful player with high resolution sound. With option for external memory capacity of storing music maximum 400GB.
  • The software UI is just fine, being well orgnaized and easy to navigate.
  • Bluetooth pairing is very easy, but staying connected is not. One ear will go out, then the other and then after a few seconds the connection will come back. This is within a building, not outside.
Pioneer XDP-30R Hi-Res Digital Audio Player, Black
  • It played every sound format I tried with ease. Highly Recommended.
  • Clear crisp sound, bluetooth and WiFi both connect seamlessly.
  • The unit is a nice size for me, has reasonable battery life, great sound and features, and fast WIFI / Bluetooth.
  • The controls have a delayed response of between 5-15 seconds, or do not register having been selected (e.g. Sync Added Songs);
  • The only real negative is Pioneer's X-DAP software. Skip it. Use another program to organize your music and just drag and drop it on the SD card.

What customers say about "Power"
Pioneer XDP-100R-S (Silver) 32GB Portable High Resolution Audio Player (Japan Import)
  • The battery life is unpredictable, but it's a lot better than an ipod.
  • After a full battery charge eleven hours listening of music with the screen turned off.
  • Best player for the money, good battery life, powers my Bose and Sennheiser headphones no problem.
  • The battery lasts about 11 hours with even some video clips.
  • After using it for a week or so, I have to add that it has very short battery life- barely enough for a weekend with moderate use.
Pioneer XDP-30R Hi-Res Digital Audio Player, Black
  • Good sound quality and battery life, user interface is stable generally speaking.
  • Battery life seems very good. I haven't performed a run-down test, but a long travel day with 6 hours in the air and some listening in cabs and at the airports meant roughly 50% battery use.
  • Great battery life when in pure music mode. Can play tunes all day long before I have to charge it.
  • The only possible downside is the battery life. With heavy listening and WIFI on (for more than a few hours a day) I have to charge it daily.
  • Short battery life. Mine, brand new, gives me maybe 3 or 4 hours, at best. I turn it off when I don't use it and try to keep the screen time to a minimum.
