GPXSportX - headset-based audio player with TransFlash expansion

Marc Perton

gpx sportWe've seen quite a few headsets with built-in digital audio players, and while they may be a great solution for people who work out to music, there are a couple of problems with them. One is that, for the most part, they're not expandable. GPX has addressed that one with the $99 GPXSportX (which was initially announced at CES), which, in addition to 128MB of onboard memory, supports TransFlash cards for expansion. It also includes an FM radio, and supports MP3 and WMA. Oh, and the second problem with headset-based players? If the headsets stink, you're stuck with them. Don't know if GPX has addressed that one; we'll just have to wait until this ships in May to find out.
