Encoded files are saved under the
'FM_ENC' folder, and are given a generic 'F001.mp3' name. The next time the YP-MT6Z
is connected to a PC, it's advisable to go through these recordings and rename
them to suit the contents.
Alternatively, if you can record music off basically anything with
a mini-headphone audio out jack. The YP-MT6Z includes a short headphone line cable and
recording ENC jack. Once the YP-MT6Z is connected to another device, encoding
the music onto it is as straightforward as recording a song off
Files can be encoded at between 32kbps
- 128kbps, depending on the quality level you desire, or how much
space remains in the memory. ENC recordings are stored in the 'LINE_ENC' directory, and files given the 'L001.mp3'
Recoding quality is pretty good, but obviously not a perfect copy of the original
file. Overall, inline encoding to MP3 from other portable music players at 128kbps is
a cool feature, but one most users of the YP-MT6Z are unlikely to really take
As a voice recorder, the YP-MT6Z is equipped
with an integrated microphone right next to the
record button... a bad location as it picks up 'finger
sounds' a little too well. Regardless, it's nice to have the ability
to record verbal messages if ever necessary.
The unit must first be set
to 'Voice' mode, but after that, just key in the 'REC' button
to start up a voice memo.
Voice recordings are
are stored with the same generic 'V001.wav' naming structure as before -
but in WAV format, not MP3. Sound quality is respectable given the small condenser microphone,
though muffled. Unlike the previous two recording methods, the YP-MT6Z will enable users
to immediately play back voice recordings.
Clear Plastic (Rain?) Case
plastic case comes with the YP-MT6Z so users can presumably protect it from getting all scratched up. The case works
well enough, while still giving access to the necessary control keys. A second option for keeping
track of the Yepp YP-MT6Z is to wear it around your neck on
Samsung have included a lanyard with the kit, but the clear plastic strap doesn't
feel too good against the skin, and is pretty flashy. Not quite as flashy as "steal-me-elmo-white-iPod-headphones"
but flashy enough that it's obviously a consumer electronic device worth a few
