The player has no external speaker but you can purchase mp3 speakers at Best Buy. Use an audio cable to connect. There are Jams, Insigna, Beats pill, JBL, and many others.

This unit has no internal speaker; you must use headphones or some external speaker to listen. The particular unit I purchased came with a set of headphones in the package.

You'd have to get a separate cd player case for that; nothing on the player itself.

No, there is no clip or belt loop on this. You'd have to put in your own type of pouch or secure it otherwise.

There was a remote control in the older versions, but that appears to have been discontinued. I didn't really miss it until now, though.

Not good at all. Within 1 hour - you get "battery low".
When the same batteries are installed in a Sony Walkman - battery life is extended several hours.

There isn't a concrete answer for this question. It depends on how frequently you use this product, for how long at a time, etc. Batteries should last for a while though..

Question

Display

Does the display show what track you are on? If so, I think I could resume an audiobook at almost the same place if I remembered or wrote down the track I stopped on. Similarly, does it show the radio station you are on?

answer 2
The display shows track information when playing discs. You can certainly select a particular track and you can skip through a track. It shows the radio station frequency when operating the radio. When using the radio, the headphone cord is the antenna for the radio, based on my experience, so the radio won't work well without a cord plugged into the headphone jack.
