I'm sure there are many such players one can suggest but try Cmus, you will not be displeased. It it more than a player, it is a whole jukebox like thing for the console! The latest version features 3 different views, easily searchable playlists, and convenient keybinds. Perhaps the best feature is the ability to change bindings and settings at will, within the player itself, through vi-style commands (with tab completion too!). Through the same mechanism, it solves the problem this author had by having a<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:seek +time feature.

In addition to OSS (according to it's webpage) it also supports Alsa, libao, arts, and sun.

There are many more features which I will not mention in the interest of brevity, but I highly encourage each of you to try out this free player for yourself.
