If you are looking for a small lightweight clear MP3 player, look no further.The battery lasts about 5-6 hours with bluetooth. With wired earphones it should last about 15 hours.The bluetooth connection is pretty good, comparing with smartphones. Check the AGPTEK 16GB MP3 Player with Bluetooth Here .... http://boseworkout.com
