The design of the Shiro AS digital audio player probably makes it pretty easy to keep a grip if you can only avoid the urge to play catch with it. This soccer ball-inspired MP3 player is spherical shaped with a design pattern similar to a soccer ball complete with navigation buttons and an OLED display built right into the pattern.
The actual features are nothing real special. It plays back MP3, WMA and WAV files, has a FM tuner and can support voice recording through a mic built into the device. It also functions as a USB storage device with capacities from 256MB to as much as 2GB, all transferred through a USB 2.0 connection. A rechargeable battery also gets juiced up through the USB cable giving up to 10 hours of playback time.
The design of this soccer ball MP3 player is just under 1.5 inches in diameter and weighs about 30 grams with the battery. Also, true to it’s sport design the Shiro AS also incorporates a stop watch and timer into the musical sphere to keep track of your game time.
