MP3 players have revolutionized the way we listen and distribute music. As technology for power management, display lighting, and audio amplifiers advance, MP3 players will become smaller, sound crisper, and cost less. With National's on-board battery management devices, users are able to listen to hours of uninterrupted music. The newest development for MP3 players is the integration of Bluetooth interfaces. National offers leading-edge solutions for audio amplifiers and interfaces, with our Boomer audio products and our Simply Blue family of Bluetooth products.
