Monolith Premium MX7000 rugged MP3 player: "Filed under: Portable Audio
If you find yourself replacing your portable audio player every few months because of a tendency to, say, drop it down flights of stairs, off of rooftops or out your car window, you may want to rethink your behavior. Or, you may want to check out the Monolith Premium MX7000, from South Korea's eStarLabs. The $150, 512MB flash player has all of the usual features, including support for MP3, WMA and OGG files, FM radio, color OLED display and 18-hour battery life. But what really sets this apart (and, we assume, helps to justify the premium price) are the manufacturer's claims that it's nearly indestructible, with a fused case and the ability to withstand being run over by a car, smashed against a wall or shot with a BB gun. Pretty impressive, but what we really want to know is whether it can handle being thrown onto the tracks of the New York subway system and handle being crushed by an oncoming train — if they ever start running again, that is.
