Great for in the gym or on the road, October 12, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: GPX C3317RS Sports Cassette Player (Electronics)This lightweight cassette player lives up to the "sports" title. It handled many full-on workouts in the gym without skipping a beat. It also held its own out on the road, lasting through an entire 15-mile jog without missing a single note. The headphones didn't exhibit any of the hiss and bounce that you might find coming from other cassette players. The only thing this player couldn't handle was the Jeep Cherokee that ran over while on a bike trip.

You get what you pay for, January 24, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: GPX C3317RS Sports Cassette Player (Electronics)This tape player doesn't have a rewind button, and flipping the tape so you can fast-forward it instead is a pain in the middle of a workout. The headphones are also low quality; they certainly don't handle the full volume range of the player, which isn't even that great. The radio reception is also poor. In sum: Bad radio, low volume, terrible headphones, no rewind.

Awful, March 19, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: GPX C3317RS Sports Cassette Player (Electronics)I bought this product and it is godawful. I may have gotten a faulty one because the sound is so awful. The range and sound separation is terrible and the volume is horrible. I tried to use it on a long plane trip and was very dissapointed.
