More Hi-Fi Audio For Your Pocket
It’s hard to make headlines with a portable music player these days. It’s old hat by now to carry around thousands of songs in your hip pocket, whether on an iPod or a smartphone.

It sounds fine, but the makers of a new portable music player are betting there are still some people out there who want even better quality.
