I’ll chime in that I still go to the park with my pocket pod at lunchtime and enjoy a little playing time. No, it’s not great and the controls are hard to figure out at first but I’ve had that thing for close to ten years and it keeps on working. Not a lot of stuff can do that! I never use the presets which is why the controls are tough but when you get one you like it will make you happy just to play for a bit. I did start using my wife’s Beats headphones with it which makes it much better than earbuds. Hotel use would be a lot easier than having it on my lap while sitting in the park, but I work in downtown DC and that’s what I’ve got, even in the COVID.
