Zune HD for the ultimate music experience

Written by Deepak  |  05. January 2011

Zune HD is supposed to compete with the iPod Touch and Microsoft has done a really good job here. The OLED display on Zune HD is really great and the battery life too is really long. You can groove to music for hours without any need to recharge the battery. Apart from that, there are lots of goodies like HD Radio tuner, subscription music integration and movie rentals. Features like these will make life tough for the Apple iPod Touch. The sound quality is really good and it sounds the best when you have something like Bose On-Ear Headphones. The gadget is not perfect though, the player cannot be used with Mac and for purchasing stuff from the Marketplace, you need 'Microsoft Points' which seems a bit childish. The support for videos is not as wide as you'd expect. The Zune HD can play all major formats but more was expected. The audio quality too doesn't have those advanced controls that you'd find on other music players. You will have to purchase dock accessory for the HD video output. The game and application selection could have been better and the music subscription plan that Microsoft was provided is a bit costly. I would still recommend the Zune HD to music enthusiasts who are looking for a great music player or an alternative to the Apple iPod Touch. The video quality is superb and this gadget will surely keep you entertained during long trips. For getting the best audio quality out of this player, it is recommended that you get Bose On-Ear headphones. For more information please visit- http://www.thetechmagnet.net
