G-Protection: Developed to provide excellent protection against sound skipping while jogging, G-Protection provides a higher level of shock protection than traditional ESP. The G-Protection feature provides 10-times faster shock recovery compared to conventional shock protection systems, so it will easily outperform electronic shock protection (ESP) systems equipped with 40 second buffers. The memory buffer is refreshed so quickly, that it is virtually impossible to make a CD skip. Note that G-Protection can be manually switched to either position 1 or 2. Position 2 provides an even greater level of shock protection and is recommended while taking harder exercise.
