Green House Kana Micro MP3 Players

by Mark R

With a name like Green House, you would think it would be a company that would make eco-friendly products. I’m not certain how environmentally sound these new Kana Micro MP3 players are, but they certainly won’t contribute to overpopulation.

That’s right, these Kana Micro MP3 Players take up very little space. You could probably stack a few of these Kanas to create something equal in size of an ordinary MP3 Player. In fact, they are so small, you probably thought the photo to the left was of thumb drives, didn’t you?

Well, the Kana is definitely designed to plug into the USB port, which is how it is recharged. On a full charge, a Kana MP3 Player is capable of up to two hours of playing time.

As for memory, there is about 2GB, but this has to come from a MicroSD card that the user must buy separately. Yeah, I know, you really shouldn’t have to do that. I was hoping that it would already have the 2GB worth of internal memory, but what can you do about it?

Right now, these Kana Micro MP3 Players are available only in Japan for a low price of $16, and they come in a full palette of colors including white (clear), blue, green, purple, orange, yellow, and pink. I’m not certain if the Kana will ever market outside of Japan, but I think it is important to see that the Kana is the popular style of MP3 Player: Small and minimalist.

What is your measure by saying it doesn’t come with 2Gb MicroSD? Please amend it instead os deleting my comment.


“the Kan Micro DAP comes with a 2GB Micro SD card”


“a 2GB card already being included”


“(a 2 gig card is included”

Does NOT include SD Card. Perhaps the initial release info was not correct.
Just picked up one in Akihabara for about $10. Not bad. Only major drawback is no volume control, but with a good set of headphones, the sound quality is surprisingly good. Cheap and simple, but useful.

Correction: Figured out the volume control, so only the battery life issue remains.

This thing is cool. For two hours and 10 dollars at Akihabara. I can’t complain. It’s smaller than my lighter.

yea, i bought one and no SD card included.

BTW, can you figure out if I can make it play random? I am sick of listening to the same sequence of songs.

Can anyone help? My friend was given one of these but no CD or software and she can’t get it working. Can I get the drivers/software online anywhere?
