iRiver H10 Junior MP3 player review

The H10 model holds a special place in the iRiver line of players - it is the most popular HDD player of all released by the company. Many accessories have been developed for it, new versions with increased disk capacity have been released, it is still selling well, having been released about two years ago. The player was embodied all the most modern functions at that time, including touch control. About a year ago, in the wake of the H10's success, iRiver introduced a flash version of the popular player. The device looks very similar to the "big brother", but has a significantly smaller size. Otherwise, he inherited the best features of the H10: a clear color display, a proprietary control scheme, a well-designed design, the ability to view graphic and text files.

The player comes with 512 MB, 1 GB or 2 GB of memory. The list of supported audio formats includes WMA, ASF, MP3 and OGG Vorbis, which is typical for iRiver products. In general, in terms of its functionality, the H10 Junior corresponds to the established average level for compact flash players. The manufacturer did not add a video viewing function, which is quite reasonable given the small size of the display, although some users who want to get the most for their money will not like this fact.

Unfortunately, the H10 Junior version sold in Russia does not have a built-in FM tuner, which is rather illogical - a small chip manufactured by Philips is embedded today even in the cheapest devices.

Due to the fact that the H10 and H10 Junior are largely the same, some of the review will be copied from the corresponding material.

Body and design

Like the H10, the body of the player is rectangular and one and a half centimeters thick (16 millimeters to be exact). At first glance, the case is made of plastic, but in fact its material is aluminum alloy. At the same time, only careful palpation helps to distinguish it from high-quality plastic. The quality of workmanship is at a high level, no assembly or manufacturing flaws were noticed, all the details are tightly fitted. There are only four color solutions for the case: red, silver, blue, brown. All of them, with the possible exception of red, look rather strict and restrained. With a decrease in size, the player began to look more balanced. One of the main design elements is, of course, the touch strip.

The front panel contains a square display, two function buttons and a touch strip. The back panel is left blank, except for a few stickers with information about the device. On the right side panel there is a sliding control lock switch, which simultaneously functions as a power switch. On the left sidebar there are buttons for switching between songs, starting and pausing playback. On the upper end, the designers placed a hole for the built-in microphone and a headphone jack, and on the lower end, a multifunctional connector.

Management

The control scheme of the player as a whole copies that implemented in the H10, among the innovations one can note the control lock switch, combined with the power on/off button.

The main control is the touch strip on the front panel. The change in the player's dimensions and proportional reduction of its size did not benefit the ease of control, it slightly decreased compared to the H10. The sensitivity of the strip is average, there is no need to get used to its use for a long time, this type of control is easy to master.

To the right and left below the display there are two function buttons, they perform the functions of confirming the selection (going to the next menu level) and returning to the previous level. The whole scheme of working with the menus and settings of the H10 Junior is implemented using the sensor and these two keys. It does not feel any inconvenience or discomfort. Replacing the touch strip with two up-down buttons or a joystick is fully justified in terms of ergonomics and ease of use.

Display and Menu

The H10 Junior display is built on a LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) type matrix and has a diagonal of 1.2 inches. The overall impression of the display is the same as that of the H10 display, despite the smaller size: the overall miniaturization of the case and the same resolution of 160x128 pixels affect. The image on the display has good performance in terms of brightness and contrast, the picture is clear and saturated. The maximum number of colors and shades that can be displayed is 262000.

The player's menu has a through vertical organization, each section is represented by its own full-screen splash screen with high quality rendering. The composition of the menu is generally standard, each of the sections (Music, Recording, Photo, Text, Browser, Settings) switches the player to listening to music, recording, viewing photos and text, viewing memory contents and adjusting various aspects of work, respectively. All settings, including system settings, recording and sound settings, are concentrated in the corresponding section. As far as the menu language is concerned, the creators of the player showed ingenuity: they did not redraw the pictures of the main menu with the corresponding inscriptions in English, they are unchanged regardless of the menu language settings. But all the inscriptions in subparagraphs, the names of settings and various settings change with switching between supported languages. The range of the latter is very wide - from simplified Chinese and Belarusian to Hebrew, Croatian and Basque.

Due to the standard, visual and intuitive organization of the menu, it is convenient to use, time for mastering and preliminary study of the instructions is not required.

Power and PC connection

The player uses a 3.7V lithium-polymer battery as a power source. The claimed continuous operation time is about 40 hours, which is a very good indicator for a player with a color display. During testing, the device worked for about 30 hours, given the increased load. The battery is charged from USB bus power, the AC adapter is not included in the delivery set.

The player is connected to a PC via USB, while the H10 Junior "inherited" a proprietary USB connector, similar to cable connectors for Siemens phones. The disadvantage of this solution is the need to always have a "native" cable with you when using the device as a mobile data carrier. Moreover, if the cable is accidentally damaged, it will not be so easy to replace it. Well, to top it all off, the supplied cable also has a connector for connecting a network adapter, which further complicates the design and confirms the need to use the supplied cable.

All operations with files are carried out by standard means of the operating system or using the iRiver Plus proprietary manager program. The latter provides automatic synchronization with the player, extracting music from CDs, playing and copying audio files to the player, creating and editing playlists, and many other functions from this clip. Updating the player's software firmware is also carried out using iRiver Plus. Working with the program manager generally provides more opportunities for cataloging and quickly finding the right music. However, the ability to copy files manually, directly from Windows, brings the player a lot of points in the eyes of those for whom such https://cars45.com. gh/2XuAH6cfXSpGWGpPGUVX3W9s is the preferred method in terms of transferring data from PC to PC using the player.

Recording, viewing text and graphic files

The player allows you to record a signal from the built-in microphone and line input (if you have a cradle). Flexible bitrate setting is not supported, there are three quality gradations. On the highest setting, the recording is made with a sampling frequency of 44 kHz and a bit rate of 128 Kbps, which is “above your head” enough for voice recording. The sensitivity of the built-in microphone is above average, the voice is recorded clearly and legibly. In the absence of intense external noise, the effective recording distance is 10 meters.

Working with graphic files in the H10 Junior is organized in a standard way, it can be noted that there is no need to pre-scale images using the program manager. File upload times are within acceptable limits, with high resolution images taking a few seconds.

The player easily recognizes TXT text files in Unicode encoding, if there is a limit on the file size, then we did not encounter this when loading books on the player. True, it is not possible to imagine that someone read quite voluminous texts using the player.

The sound quality of the player is standard for iRiver, the brand has a consistently high reputation in this aspect. The output power of the player's amplifier is 14 mW per channel, which is quite enough to "pump" in-ear and most over-ear headphones.

The supplied headphones are standard for iRiver players, their design allows us to conclude that Sennheiser, whose MX200 headphones have been included in the company's products, has long been included. True, there is no corresponding marking on them, and the sound quality is tempting to question Sennheiser's involvement in the creation of this copy of the headphones. The quality of their sound can be called average, it is enough for listening to popular music, but nothing more. If you need a good response at low frequencies and transparent high frequencies, we recommend replacing the headphones with a more advanced model.

Conclusions and impressions

It is worth noting separately the long battery life - the player works for more than three dozen hours on a single battery charge (the declared figure is 40 hours).

The player makes a very worthy overall impression, it owes this to an interesting design, high-quality display and sound, and a long battery life. Unfortunately, the absence of an FM tuner, which is practically unconditioned, significantly reduces the attractiveness of the model in the eyes of potential buyers. In the case of Apple's players, whose market share is still very small, they had to put up with it. However, the decision of iRiver, whose products are very popular in Russia, and the company's brand has the image of a "people's brand", is unlikely to be understood by buyers, as they say, "voting with the ruble". Most likely, this is precisely the reason for the fact that the H10 Junior remains in the shadows and is not very popular: a quick search on the Internet gives out only a couple of stores offering this model. Be that as it may, for those who do not like the radio and want to get an interesting high-quality device with touch controls, the H10 Junior can be recommended.

However, the ability to copy files manually, directly from Windows, brings the player a lot of points in the eyes of those for whom this https://cars45.com.gh/2XuAH6cfXSpGWGpPGUVX3W9s method is preferable in terms of transferring data from PC to PC using the player.

All operations with files are carried out by standard means of the operating system or using the iRiver Plus proprietary manager program. The latter provides automatic synchronization with the player, extracting music from CDs, playing and copying audio files to the player, creating and editing playlists, and many other functions from this clip.

The player easily recognizes TXT text files in Unicode encoding, if there is a limit on the file size, then we did not encounter this when loading books on the player. True, it is not possible to imagine that someone read quite voluminous texts using the player.

The sound quality of the player is standard for iRiver, the brand has a consistently high reputation in this aspect. The output power of the player's amplifier is 14 mW per channel, which is quite enough to "pump" in-ear and most over-ear headphones.

The supplied headphones are standard for iRiver players, their design allows us to conclude that Sennheiser, whose MX200 headphones have been included in the company's products, has long been included. True, there is no corresponding marking on them, and the sound quality is tempting to question Sennheiser's involvement in the creation of this copy of the headphones. The quality of their sound can be called average, it is enough for listening to popular music, but nothing more. If you need a good response at low frequencies and transparent high frequencies, we recommend replacing the headphones with a more advanced model.

Conclusions and impressions

It is worth noting separately the long battery life - the player works for more than three dozen hours on a single battery charge (the declared figure is 40 hours).

The player makes a very worthy overall impression, it owes this to an interesting design, high-quality display and sound, and a long battery life. Unfortunately, the absence of an FM tuner, which is practically unconditioned, significantly reduces the attractiveness of the model in the eyes of potential buyers. In the case of Apple's players, whose market share is still very small, they had to put up with it. However, the decision of iRiver, whose products are very popular in Russia, and the company's brand has the image of a "people's brand", is unlikely to be understood by buyers, as they say, "voting with the ruble". Most likely, this is precisely the reason for the fact that the H10 Junior remains in the shadows and is not very popular: a quick search on the Internet gives out only a couple of stores offering this model. Be that as it may, for those who do not like the radio and want to get an interesting high-quality device with touch controls, the H10 Junior can be recommended.
