Features

Pendant Style: The Samsung YP-F2JX is a tiny digital music player that can be worn as a pendant around the neck, or clipped to your clothing. The supplied earbud headphones have a looping cable which is worn around your neck. A detachable string, which can be looped through the player, can be locked in place on the headphone cable and the player is worn as a pendant.

Compatible Formats: The unit can play MP3 and WMA files, as well as Secure WMA (WMA-DRM10). The unit supports MP3 files recorded at 8 to 320 Kbps and WMA files recorded at 48 to 192 Kbps. You can store a maximum of 200 folders and 2000 files.

PlaysForSure: This unit is compatible with PlaysForSure, which ensures the unit will work with WMA music subscription services such as Napster, Rhapsody, Yahoo Music, and AOL MusicNow.

512 MB Memory: The YP-F2JX is equipped with a 512 MB Flash memory with the capacity to store approximately 16 hours of music (MP3s recorded at 64 kbps). Note: Due to the reserved memory for system file and data recovery, the actual capacity is slightly less. The unit comes with a couple of music files already loaded.

FM Tuner: The player has a built-in FM tuner with selectable regions: Korea/USA, Japan, or Other Countries. You can manually or automatically store up to 20 frequencies in preset memory. The FM sensitivity can be set to one of three levels: High, Middle, or Low.   

Display: The unit features a 3-line, 15/16" FSTN (Film SuperTwist Nematic) display for viewing music file and menu information. You can independently set the duration of the backlight (5, 15, 30, or 60 seconds, always on). The display also has a screen saver (a clock display) which appears in the display window after no button activity for a preset amount of time. The screen saver is activated after 5, 10, or 30 seconds, 1, 5, or 10 minutes, or always on. When the Auto Off feature is activated, the unit will automatically turn itself off a set amount of time after the last button press when the unit is put into pause mode.

Input/Output: The YP-F2JX has only two connections: the top-mounted 3.5mm headphone jack and the bottom-mounted USB 2.0 port with a plastic cover. The USB 2.0 port is used exclusively for file/data transfer, and for charging the battery. Note: The USB port is not a standard USB Version 2.0 connection, so the supplied USB cable must be used.
