SHOCKWAVE® Portable CD Player


SHOCKWAVE® Portable CD Player with 6-Preset Equalizer, Blue


Outstanding Audio Entertainment in Tough Outdoor Conditions
Our SHOCKWAVE® Portable CD Players are rugged enough to withstand shock and vibration--plus they're both water-resistant1 and heat-resistant2. They're also equipped with a special lock and release system, designed to keep the top cover firmly closed. So if your life is action-packed, pack a player that lives for action!

Discover Digital Clarity with D.sound Technology
Advanced D.sound technology is comprised of four components that work together to elevate your audio experience to the next level. A Digital Amplifier helps reduce distortion and also helps you achieve crystal-clear sound--even at higher volume levels. The S-XBS and Digital Audio Gain Control help to improve bass response at higher volume levels and MP3 Re-Master technology allows the listener to receive outstanding sound quality from compressed music files, such as MP3.

No-Skip Anti-Skip System Helps Provide Continuous Listening
Our SHOCKWAVE 174; Portable CD Players are designed to reduce or eliminate CD skipping during most active uses. It even has a backup memory feature that helps provide further assurance of a skip-free listening experience.

Compatible with your MP3 Files
MP3 is the most popular and widely used digital audio compression format available today. Since MP3 files are so small, you can burn a library of music onto CD-R/RWs3 from a compatible computer and play them back on your SHOCKWAVE 174; Portable CD Player.

Keep the Music Going for Hours
You can achieve up to 110 Hours4 of MP3 and up to 60 Hours4 of CD-DA Playback with just two AA Alkaline Batteries.
