Dubbed the U3, the player contains up to 4GB of song storage, though there's an FM radio on board if you tire of your own collection. Small in size - 8 x 2.6 x 1.1cm, to be precise - the U3 packs a big sound, Samsung claimed, thanks to its DNSe 3D audio technology.

Available in a choice of five colours - pink, black, white, green and blue - the U3 comes bundled with matching earphones. Press any key and the end of the player glows blue. Even so, the on-board battery's good for up to 15 hours' playback, Samsung said.
