What are MP3 Players

Most teens consider MP3 as the “in-thing” to have. It is the equivalent of the walkman from way back. It stores digital music compressed to a much smaller size than a compact disc but the music is of the same quality. There is no need for storage devices to be slotted in to the unit to play music. It has similar components as the computer – data port, memory, microprocessor, digital signal processor, playback devices, audio port, amplifier and power supply. They come with software programs for managing files and downloading music. The unit is run either by batteries or by plugging into an AC adaptor.

Birth of MP3

It is often said that the MP3 was invented by Karlheinz Brandenburg, but he doesn’t want to take the credit for it. He attributes its development to a host of core developers with many others contributing. While he was trying to discover the discipline of how people understand and see music, he was tasked to reproduce the song of a folk rock singer without the background noise. So in collaboration with other MP3 developers they were able to refine the technology up to a point that the song sounded just like the original. This served as the break they needed and further research had the MP3 establish its niche in the industry.
