Apple has all but killed the iPod. But that doesn't mean makers of other portable music players have followed suit... These are the best around.

The iPod Classic is dead and the iPod Touch is, well, not quite the same - it only has a fraction of the storage of the Classic, making it fine for short journeys, but not a true portable jukebox for the serious audiophile.

Thankfully there are plenty of alternative players around, offering better sound quality and masses of storage. So whether you want to enjoy hi-res tunes on the go, or just to save your phone's battery life, there's something to fit your needs.
