Archos Clipper is $20.
Thats for the 2GB version...
And I agree that the Archos 2 is more likely to be the comparison..... even though I think the Archos has better features, the purpose of the players mention in this thread is to be Clipped... so physically the Archos 2 is kinda big....
Note that the Battery of the Clip is 14 hours of audio... where the clipper only offers 11 and the archos 2 offers 10 hours... (for me is not such a big difference but the longer, the better)
The sansa clip can be bulky in terms of thickness
All of this is a matter of taste... and comparing it to a iPod Shuffle or Archos Clipper it could be a tad bigger but definitely not bulky...
I was coming from using the Archos AV500 as my main mp3 player... obviously the Sansa Clip was incredibly small. and I can tell you that it is small enough to exercise... I run, I climb, I play tennis with it... I have even play basketball that its more of a contact sport with the Sansa Clip... so in terms of "small enough" yeah it is.
Lastly I have to say I dont consider myself an audiophile but I tend to like rich sound in my music... and the AV500 offered this to me... but I dare to say that the Sansa Clip is one of the best sounding mp3 players in the market... and with a good set of headphones they rock.
