Before we begin comparing these two portable media players, we’d like to say that we’re in love with both of them. And we love it that we can have both, because we’re the one selling it to you. Having said that, all those looking for a small, portable yet nifty music player will have to make a choice. Therefore, let’s make it a little easier for you.
Storage space: they’re both available in 2 GB storage, therefore, no one wins here.
Design: While the Clipper sports a very trendy and sleek design, the TicToc features a unique yet classy look. They both seem to hold well during workouts with strong clippers.
Battery Life: The TicToc sports a battery life of 12 hours, whereas the Clipper sports 11 hours. Therefore, the TicToc wins by a slight margin here.
Controls: Here’s the first place where there’s a huge difference – perhaps a deciding factor for many. The TicToc comes with gravity sensors built into it along with one button. The functions are quite intuitively designed to work with a combination of holding the player in a particular position and then pressing the button.
The TicToc can also do many advanced things such as sort your tracks as per the tempo so that you can listen to your music as per your mood. The player also comes with a voice guide that tells you the name of the current track and its artist.
The only downside here could be when you’re running or jogging and make a jump. This could trigger the motion sensors resulting in an interruption to the flow of music.
The Clipper, on the other hand, comes with a simple set of buttons like any other media player.
Sound quality: Both the players deliver good-quality, crisp sound; but if you’re very particular about the kind of earphones you use, you might want to buy a fresh pair for yourself.
Cost: This is another deciding factor between the two players. While the TicToc is available for £34.55 in our store, the Clipper is available for just £17.99.
Both these players have a lot of merits and deliver everything they promise. Therefore, it really comes down to your budget and the type of features you prefer. If you’re not too big on the gravity sensors, it would make more sense to buy the Clipper. But if you’d like to give something really cool a try and you can afford to spend £35 on it, you should buy the TicToc.
