Thanko MP3 player

Japan's Thanko on Monday released its latest Sport MP3 digital audio player that weighs just 1.5 ounces (42 grams). The wraparound neckband is made of highly flexible plastic that resists breakage, and the earbuds are highly adjustable to help users find the right fit. The Sport MP3 has 2GB of integrated memory, supports MP3s, WMAs, and WAVs, and its integrated lithium-ion battery's life is rated at up to five hours.

Users charge the battery and copy files onto the headphone MP3 player via a USB port, while three buttons and an LED light account for the interface needed to operate the system. The Sport MP3 will begin selling in Japan today, priced at the equivalent of about $50. [via Akihabara]
