Samsung YEPP MP3 Players
Fit in the palm of your hand
by Rick Smith (January 6, 2001)
The latest MP3 players from Samsung are the Hip-Hop YEPP and the Techno YEPP. They are both smaller and sleeker than the previous models, YEPP E-32 and YEPP E-64, introduced earlier this year. Both feature USB interface capability for faster downloads from your computer to the player. Both are PC and Mac compatible.
Hip-Hop YEPP is the smaller of the two and weighs only 1.7 ounces. It is one of the smallest MP3 players with removable memory and has dimensions of 3.2" x 2.4" x 0.97". It is shown above.
Techno YEPP is weighs slightly more (2.6 ounces) and has similar dimensions (3.3" x 2.6" x 0.75"). It has a silver color and a most unusual round LCD screen. The Techno YEPP is shown just above.
Both models also:
include a four mode equalizer with 3D sound effect
use Smart Media memory cards for expansion (32 mb or 64 mb)
are bundled with RealJukebox software and dozens of music titles
utilize CDDB technology to display track titles of music files
use a wired remote that attaches to the headphones so that volume and song selection can be changed while the YEPP remains in your pocket or bag
have two different versions, depending on internal memory: 32 mb and 64 mb
The 32 mb Hip-Hop YEPP is $169.99 and the 64 mb is $249.99. The versions of the Techno YEPP are $20 more than the Hip-Hop model with equivalent memory.
