Hi, just wanted to let you know I got my Sennheiser Momentum and I love them with my C3. These headphones are way too expensive here, around 500 dollars in Mexico, and they don't look the price, really, being all sober and simple looking, but they sound great for my ears. I am getting the BH2 amplifier for Xmas, but in the meantime I am really enjoying my combo.
Thanks H20. Your opinion is always helpful. The problem is that in México I can get locally only the BK amp, which as far as I know is sort of the little brother of the BH, with less quality components. I can also get the Fiio amps, but I haven't seen many combinations with the C3, so I don't know if they could be an alternative for me. What do you think? Thanks.
I am either getting some new headphones for my Colorfly C3, probably some Sennheiser or Sony, but for the same price I can get a Fiio X3. I am a listener of metal, classic and jazz and like a bass heavy but balanced sound and was wondering if the Fiio X3 can give me that. I am currently using some Sony XBA 2 with the Colorfly but on some songs the bass is not as present as I like. I know it's more of a music production issue than the players fault, but I am still curious...
Guys, I have a question. I am enjoying my C3 with my Sony XBA-2, but I am wondering if I can get something better, so I made a list of some cans I can get for sure here in Mexico, and I would love to have your input about them. So, here it is:
Audio Technica ATH-M50
Bowers & Wilkins P5
Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
AKG K 81 DJ
Shure SE 215
Bose Quiet Comfort...
Guys, I truly think the C3 is the best player I had so far. I only wish it was able to play Nero encoded files, so I could cram twice the music I do now on FLAC. I guess I'll have to wait and get a 64G card instead. I would also love to have a better navigation system, but what I do instead is create folders named after the artist and album (apocalyptica-cult) and then rename the files using foobar by track number and title (05-Cult) and then organize all alphabetically....
These are my budget rigs. Well, at least budget for U.S. terms, since cheap electronics in the U.S. sometimes retail (if they are ever available in the Mexican market) for 2 or 3 times the original price. Case in point my Colorfly C3: Around a 100 dollar in the U.S., but retailing for around 300 south of the border. This is the Caselogic case I got for it today, at around 4 dollars, and a bit of my rockboxed Sansa Clip+.
And this is the C3 inside the case, were...
