The New Wave of MP3 Music
Samsung’s newest digital music player masterpiece, the K5, is a lightweight 4GB MP3 player with a heavyweight portfolio including an innovative touch screen, FM radio receiver, alarm clock, and built-in speakers.

Built-in Speakers
The K5 offers a unique experience through its embedded speakers. The K5's built-in stereo speakers disappear behind the unit when not in use, yet when needed effortlessly slide out to create a free-standing mini-stereo system.

Despite being a fraction of the size of the smallest stereo system, the K5's slide-out speaker design delivers the same great sound - no distortion, great volume, and a defined deep bass. Perfect for the active, hip and young lifestyle, the YP-K5 travels with you, allowing you to live your life in sound.

Easy to use and a breeze to navigate, the K5 gives a masterful performance that is accessible by everyone
Enhanced usability and intuitive interfaces make the K5 playable right out of the box. Hit the power and brilliant OLED lighting illuminates the glossy black surface, and a vertical display guides the user through the K5's multimedia features. The intuitive navigation and aesthetic graphics brighten the screen and complement the K5's comprehensive features, including adaptive displays. Music is conveniently catalogued in various folders, allowing you to quickly locate your song of choice. When the speaker slides out, the K5 seamlessly switches from vertical to horizontal view automatically. The keys on the touch screen remain the same; the multi-directional keys just rotate 90 degrees when going from private to speaker mode for a minimum number of keys, a simplified system and a minimalist look.

Share your love of music with others, and do it with style
Fitting easily in the palm of your hand, the K5 is cool and slick to the touch due to its premium magnesium finish. With rounded corners and perfectly flush edging, the compact and slim features allow for easy one-handed dexterity and control.

Bottom line This combination MP3 player and speaker folds up to the size of the LG Chocolate phone. Its a very hip idea, though Im not quite sure people will pay a premium for the integrated speaker. The slider mechanism seems sturdy enough, though, and the devi...

Earlier we had tested a Samsung MP3 player; the YP-Z5Q. The player was quite good, but the pricing was not really the expected type and the biggest Con was the missing FM tuner. That isnt the case in the YP-K5.
Good Great design, Good sound output, Impressive integrated speaker, Image viewer, Good battery life...
Bad Expensive, FM tuner did not work...
Bottom line The in-built speaker of the YP-K5 will amaze you. They not only sound good but play pretty loud as well. The speaker set consists of two 0.5-inch drivers on both ends of the player. Most phones see in-built speakers and by far the phone with best spea...
We recently got our hands on the Samsung YP-K5 digital audio player, one of the few MP3 players that has a built-in speaker. The K5 also has an FM tuner, a 1.7-inch color OLED screen, touch-sensitive controls, and 2GB or 4GB of embedded flash memory...
With slide-out speakers and touch-sensitive buttons, the Samsung YP-K5 is in a league of its own. Should you play ball, or find a different game?...
Good Great sound. Reliable, easy-to-use alarm clock. Interesting, unique design replaces the need for tiny, external speakers.
Bad Lousy transfer software. Uncomfortable headphones. Screen is a bit washed-out. A bit bulky for a portable device.
Bottom line The Samsung YP-K5 certainly tries to stand out from the crowd with its unique, slide-out speakers. We suppose this player is targeting a niche crowd, looking for a portable party (and something to wake them up the next morning), and for that crowd we...
Samsung’s K5 comes with the interesting addition of a slide-out speaker built behind the main player. The idea is to allow you to listen to music from a short distance without headphones, but although the quality here is relatively good you won’t be ho...

Bottom line The K5 is a very nice mp3 player, but despite the looks and usability we wonder how many would get enough use out of the built-in speaker to justify the extra cost...
If you cant keep your music to yourself, and you must share it with everyone around you, then having just earphones and an MP3 player probably wont do it for you. Youd need to have a set of speakers on you, in addition to the visually attractive Sam...
MP3 players are fast becoming commodity items. With its recent price drops, even Apple's players don't command a significant premium over the competition – a fact that makes life very hard for non-Apple branded products. Rightly or wrongly, given the choi...
Bottom line Samsung has created a very innovative product with the YP-K5. I can't deny that the design is clever and the integrated speaker produces sound of a higher quality than I expected. With the K5 Samsung has produced a player that has a feature that no other...
The MP3-player landscape is littered with me-too merchandise, so a new product needs a little something extra if it’s to rise above the noise. Samsung’s YP-K5 succeeds with clever slide-out speakers and a 1.7-inch OLED screen; unfortunately, its $210 a...
If you havent already heard enough about the Samsung K5 today, you will have in about 3 minutes time. As weve said, its available in the UK now, and was the shining star at the Samsung stand this month at IFA. The MP3 player features an FM radio, to...

Samsung has recently been cranking out some decent players into the market, one of them being the Nano-competing Z5. The newer K5 is an exceptional twist on the MP3 player, providing a set of external speakers that allow you to unhook your ears from...
Samsung K5 comes with a satisfying classy design, and I do admit that the sleek touch sensitive interface, blue button menus, and built in speakers is the strength of the Samsung K5. The model is available as a 1GB, 2GB or 4 GB which also comes with a...
