LG Touch Me FM37 MP3 player

...sounds like a one-hit wonder from the 80s

High performance access to file storage

LG Touch Me FM37 MP3 player
The FM37 averages 20 hours music and four hours video playback

Because of the memory size, the unit is probably going to be used mostly for music playback, and thankfully it delivers a solid performance. Normally with most of these devices we'd recommend that buyers invest in some decent headphones, as those supplied are usually pretty basic. However, the headphones that come with this unit are definitely a cut above the average. There is genuine depth and detail in the delivery, quite rare for a pair of supplied in-ear headphones.

The unit also has an automatic equaliser that uses the information on a tract’s ID3 tag to choose which setting to playback in. This works well most of the time, the Concert option delivers a nice clean sound, Club takes the brightness up a few notches and pushed any vocals to the front of the mix, Room simplifies the delivery and gently squeezes all the sounds closer together. However, Stadium is best avoided, it actually sound like you are listening to the music with your head stuck in a bucket of glue. Wembley Arena it isn't.

Thankfully you can easily access the menus and manually adjust what style of playback you want.

The unit has all the organisational options you would expect, including playlists and random selection options. One nice feature of the random options is that you get the feeling that the unit is using its whole data base to select from. Often with some other products of this kind you get the distinct impression that only a portion of the database is being selected from, as for a few plays the same albums will feature rather heavily, before the player moves onto another part of the data base.
