SanDisk Sansa Shaker Headset

The SanDisk Shaker is easy to use thanks to its limited amount of operating buttons. Most children will be able to use it without reading the manual. The cheerful sound that is heard when the SanDisk Shaker is turned on makes it clear that this MP3 player is obviously aiming at children. The SanDisk Shaker offers the possibility to listen to the music with one or two headsets; one comes standard with the Sansa shaker. If you want to enjoy the Shaker with the whole family, or you just don't feel like using the headset, you can simply not use it and let the speaker produce the sound.

When turning on the Shaker, a funny sound is confirming that the Sansa Shaker has been activated. The previously installed songs let you immediately enjoy the astoundingly pure and excellent sound quality that the delivered headset offers in combination with the Sansa Shaker. The volume range definitely takes into consideration that this is a device for children. Even at maximum volume it seems to me that it is very unlikely to have any negative influence to the hearing. If we remove the headset, the built-in speaker takes over and produces the sound. The quality of the sound remains equally excellent, which of course we expect from a SanDisk product like this Sansa Shaker MP3 player.

The SanDisk MP3 player owes its name to the 'shake' function that lets you swap between songs. The 'shake' function can be used by pressing down the play/pause button and then shaking the device. When you are 'shaking' you will hear a funny sound confirming 'shaking' was carried out well and the next song will start playing. The 'shake' function works fine and because it only works together with pressing the play/pause button unwillingly playing an other song will not occur. The 'shake' function is not really adding to the functionality because the bottom white band also lets you select a previous or next song by turning the band to the left or the right. But of course it is a nice additional option for children; the target group this SanDisk MP3 player is aiming at.

It is extremely easy to manage your songs on the SanDisk Sansa Shaker by means of the delivered USB cable. When this cable is connected between the Sansa Shaker and the computer, you only have to put the songs you want to listen to in a file on the SanDisk Sansa Shaker. Transferring the songs from you computer to the Shaker is reasonably fast; it takes around 1 minute for 15 songs. The delivered SD memory card of 512MB holds up to 125 songs. Naturally you can enhance the storage capacity by using an SD memory card with a larger storage capacity.
