MP3ergo - Usability of MP3 players

  • Listening to music played by small MP3-players is almost as ubiquituous as talking over mobile phones. In this paper we analyse interaction elements and usabilty of current MP3-players. To determine the usability, an empirical study based on a website that presented three simulated MP3-players was performed with over 1000 participants. The results show that, despite most marketing claims, some interaction devices are not as intuitive and really suitable for the task as they schould be. Also we found some surprising results concerning erroneous usage of navigation keys.
