Packard Bell AudioKey Max review | Introduction
Packard Bell AudioKey Max
N ot only desktops, monitors, notebooks, storage media and GPS devices are produced by Packard Bell; MP3 players also belong to their line-up. We tested the Packard Bell Eclipse not so long ago, and this time we will scrutinize the Packard Bell AudioKey Max. This MP3 player is ranked right below the Eclipse in the Packard Bell assortment, and offers a tad more functionality than a regular MP3 player, including several innovative features. In addition to listening to MP3s, the device lets you record voice recordings and listen to the radio. Furthermore, a neatly finished USB 2.0 connection is applied for easy transfer of files to your AudioKey Max MP3 player. That’s as far as the specifications go, let's take a look to see if this MP3 player is easy to use in practice.

Packard Bell AudioKey MP3 player design
The glossy piano lacquer black coloured MP3 player with chrome finishing looks elegant and sleek. The rectangular form and the round navigation button on the front look simple but stylish. There are two more buttons found on the top side, one to put the MP3 player on hold and one to enter the menu. To the left, the 3.5 mm stereo jack connection is placed. Furthermore, a hidden USB connection is available here to connect the AudioKey Max to the pc for charging or transferring MP3s.
