Do you still have an MP3 player (i.e. just plays music, maybe video), or do you listen to your music on other devices when you're on the go?

If you still have one, what kind is it and how long have you had it*? If you've never had one, why not?

*I just managed to crack the screen on my 4-year-old super-awesome Sansa(e200)...it still works, but it puts a damper on my videos, so I've been thinking about a new one but none of them look as good. Recs would be great.

ETA: Nothing important, but I am loving the sharp contrast in answers to the first section, impressive amount of support for both sides.

Nope. My husband recently sold my ipod on ebay. I was using it up until I got my iPhone about two years ago. I only had an ipod for maybe a year, though. I'd just been too cheap to buy one before, but that one was free.

Yes. I have a 64 gb iPod. I had another iPod before and it died, so my dad got me this one for Christmas a few years ago to replace it (three years, I think?). In between the old one breaking and receiving the new one I was walking around with a portable CD player, lol. I have way too much music to store on my phone and I like having it all on a separate player, so I can't see myself switching to an iPhone or anything like that.

I have an 80 gb iPod. I don't get the point of having music on one's phone.

I have my iPod Classic. It still works fine but something is wrong with the screen...

I have an iPod Nano (4th gen), which I've had for about 2 years. I prefer not to waste the battery on my phone by using it for music.

I only listen to music on my laptop or iPhone these days.

No, never did. I've had smart phones for a long time, and they've always had the capability of having music on them, so why have two devices?

That being said, I don't have any music on my iPhone. I have Pandora. But the thing is, I have kids. So there's never a good time to put in headphones and listen to music while blocking out the world. I don't understand how parents use them, unless it's stuff like going to the gym.

I have an iPod touch that is okay.. I really miss my ancient nano (it was from the year they were short and fat!) but it broke a few months ago after a few years of good service and didn't hold everything.
the iPod touch is nice I just feel like I paid for a lot of features I won't use.

Yesss, I was so hoping someone would say this. I still use mine, just not the "portable" aspect of it (it's good for late-night writing sessions when the computer's off).

I have an 80 gig iPod classic that I got in 2007 and I love it. I still take it with me wherever I go and it has over 14,000 songs in it and I don't like wearing the battery down in my phone, so my iPod works great.

I still use my 6-year-old iPod (the same one that's in your icon, actually), and when it breaks I plan on upgrading to an iTouch.

I have an iPod touch. I've had it for 2 years. I <3 it. It's the closest I'll ever get to an iPhone probably lol. It was a splurge I bought for myself when I was getting ready to go on vacation. It was nice to have on the plane, and I could watch movies on Netflix. :D

Edit: I bought my first iTouch in 2008 and it lasted for close to two years and then the battery supply totally stopped charging. One of the saddest days ever!

Yes, I have an iPod that's six or seven years old. These last few months, though, I've started using my iPhone because it's a lot more convenient than carrying both around. The downfall is my iPhone doesn't hold all my music like my iPod does!

I did until recently. I had an iPod that was stolen from my car a month or two ago. :( I probably had it for 6 years or a little more. It was in great condition! Now I just use Spotify in its place

I have an ipod nano that's around 5-6 years old and it still works decently for what I use it for so I haven't really felt like getting rid of it. I've considered renewing my plan and getting an iphone, but idk. I heard the sound quality wasn't all that great when plugged into speakers.

I have an iPod Nano I just got this year, replacing an ancient iPod mini that a friend handed down to me, which itself replaced my very old iPod 4G, which I still have although it stopped functioning.

All I want my music player to do is play music and podcasts and I'm perfectly happy with this one.

I use an iPod Touch, but for everything BUT music or videos. I find it just too awkward. Instead, I listen to music (and podcasts) on my Nano. For videos I use the iPad.

I've still got an mp3 player. I've had it for a few years - it's a Creative Zen Mozaic something, EZ100 or something?
