Thats what everyone said and is prob true but i am different. I prefer my music altered to suit my tastes. Flat music do not work for me.

things to consider:
size: from necklace style to those of a size of a deck of poker cards
battery type: from AAA to AA to built-in rechargeable. those that let u take AAA or AA allow u to change battery on the move when u run out of juice. bulit in rechargeables have to send in the entire player when the built-in batt is spoilt
display: do u want it to have a LCD display? most will have.
extra buttons: those with a "lock" button are better so that u wont accidentally change settings unknowingly while on the move. alot of creative players dont have lock button
usb interface: either direct plug into computer or have to use a connecting wire. some are spring loaded. for the creative muvos, u have to detach the batt compartment which i feel will result in faster wear n tear
hidden interface: sony players require u to install the music library software and use it to transfer mp3 files from computer to player. i.e u can't directly drag n drop mp3 files from comp to player if u dont install the proprietary software
other functions: FM radio, direct sound/voice recording, pen-light, graphic equaliser, etc
physical: appearance, asthetics, colour, shape, weight, position of various buttons, how loose/dampened the buttons pressing will feel, whether if there is inclusion of clip(to clip on to shirt)/ supplied armband, style of the supplied earphones, etc
