Almost all mp3-players will work fine with *BSD systems, the basic 
filesystem used on them is dos, so you can simply mount them using 
'mount -t msdos'. I can't realy say what mp3 player is best, but check 
out the Iriver products, most of their mp3 players also support ogg 
vorbis, you are probably looking for an player with HD so check for the 
H300 series, for more info
