Not too long ago woot.com ran a sale on Maximo iMetal IM-490's.  It was some ridiculous price, like $17 shipped. That's over, and now they are $50-60 on Amazon.   But if you don't mind getting them through ebay, you shouldn't have a problem finding a brand new pair for $20-30 shipped.  While ebay can be tricky with fakes, it's a fairly common practice for resellers to pop up with woot goods after sales like this, so if you got them soon I think you'd most likely end up...
32gb cards work; use rockbox to avoid the longer "refreshing your media" times.
  Sounds great to me with OF (sansa's original firmware) or rockboxed.  Some say it sounds better.  Either way, the EQ and features are definitely better, and you can have your cake and eat it too because installing rockbox means you dual boot -- if you want the OF, all you have to do is hold the "home" button for a second or two while turning it on.       They are built to last -- but if you are ever tempted to toss it into a landfill before the end of it's useful life,...
If you ever find such a beast, let us know if you enjoyed messin' with it.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tXEEZE0rqM     /never liked earbuds much, but have been a big fan of the nearly extinct J-cords for years
I've been eying them a while myself, and the word seems to be that they sound better when a small piece of foam is put in the nozzle, not too deeply to interfere with the drivers.  It's supposed to smooth things out, take the edge off of a treble that some consider to be on the harsh side.  So maybe the earlier these Gump feather filters float away, the better.  Cool that a piece of kitchen sponge seems to also do the trick.   Does this mod ever have a chance of...
If you use folder browsing which looks directly at any files or directories, then you will see what you are looking for, whether it's on the device or the card.  And the menus scroll fast, even through 16gb worth of stuff.  But you can't look in 2 places at once, no.   If you want to look through your music as if the card and the built in memory were the same, then just make sure your music has been ID3 tagged.   If all of your music files have tags, then when you...
Or not.        Here's the thing: I couldn't help thinking that for those in the know, the price on these just shot up 15 bucks.  If the early reviews hold up, then they will still be a very good deal @ 59.50.  But people who've missed the boat are unlikely to pull the trigger on these until the flood of expected good reviews starts coming along in the next week or two, when everyone starts receiving them.  So until those reviews start coming in, why not toss...
Pretty good deal at www.woot.com...4gb clip+ for 19.95 + 5 dollars shipping, get as many as 3.   And yes you can rockbox them -- the latest build has been very stable for me, getting over 17 hours of battery life now.
Mine shipped as of about 8:30 this morning...seriously looking forward to checking these out!         Raz, I know the presale is over but for latecomers is this $5 credit still good for putting up a review if they were purchased now?   I'm throwing out the question because I think you might get a few more people on board with these for the final price of $54.50 if the $5 review refund was extended for another week or two.
Why not take advantage of the Senn warranty?  In the US I know it's 2 years, and I don't think the CX200s have even been around that long.   If that won't work or you want to upgrade, I have the CX-400s & took some time searching for what I think will be a good upgrade, the Brainwavz M2.  They've gotten some nice write-ups especially for their bass impact & precision (not to mention build quality & a smooth sound signature), which should help you enjoy the music you...
