Offering superb sound quality from its two built-in speakers, this portable, easy-to-use MP3 player will play content such as audio books, music and talking newspapers directly from a USB stick. It has four large yellow control buttons and an extra-large volume control.


A high quality, easy-to-use portable MP3 player that enables you to listen to content such as music, audio books and talking newspapers directly from a USB stick or via Bluetooth. It has four large, yellow tactile control buttons, an extra large volume control dial, which is great if you have limited dexterity, and offers superb sound quality from the two built-in speakers.

Raised, shaped buttons with tactile markings make it easy to move to a new book, skip through chapters or review the paragraph you have just read. Whenever you switch the player off or remove a memory stick, the Sovereign will remember the exact place and play from there when that stick is next used. The Sovereign also has Bluetooth connectivity, so is ready for pairing with your mobile and tablet devices, too.

Connecting to the Sovereign via Bluetooth does not require any buttons to be pressed on the Sovereign. Simply search for and select the Sovereign on your Bluetooth device (Phone, Tablet etc.) to connect.

Three beeps are designed to indicate a low battery. A red light will show on the top of the player when the battery is charging; this light will go out when the battery is fully charged. If the battery is completely flat, you will need to allow the unit to charge for 15 minutes before turning it on and using mains power to operate it.
