Add it to your cart, do your name thing,next screen there's a space for a coupon. put in WALKMAN40, and it deducts $40. Has to be on the overstock one though, won't work if you're trying it on refurbished. Note: It's only good until April 10

I must agree that the 805 sounds better than my 818. The 805 has a punchier sound with bit more "fizz" in the sound. Saying that I use my...
What..talking? You mean we'd have to drop the charade of who we pretend to be online...and gasp..be ourselves and actually communicate verbally? What are we going to do with all our spare time then, if problems are resolved so simply?...patience little grasshopper, search, search more, get frustrated with all the endless opinions and psuedo facts and then post a question only to be told to "google it" Home theatre...hmmm, I'm just trying to get a projector/screen...
A quote from a reviewer on Cnet "Let's just say that at first I was a little freaked out. I had it on the user EQ setting with the "CLEAN BASS" setting at "MAX" with the volume turned all the way up. All at once the volume started to "breathe". The "CLEAN BASS" feature seems to not only boost the bass but to cut the interfering frequencies around it to allow the bass frequencies to cut through cleanly. When the setting is too high, and the volume is at max, the volume...

I usually keep the EQ completely flat though, since the phones sound so great on their own, but I have played around with the EQ settings and Clear Bass of course - especially with the included MDR-EX082s, which really need a bass boost. But then again maybe I shouldn't if only happens with your 716s. Why would it only happen with...
I believe I've found a serious fault with the previous version Sony's. At volume levels between 21-30, the Clear Bass creates a volume inconsistency....BADLY. It's as if the song is going up and down in volume....like turning your amplifier knob up and down rapidly every second to create a loud,soft, loud, soft effect. The higher the Clear Bass, the worse the effect. Turning off the Clear Bass fixes the problem and restores loudness to a level volume. In fact, the entire...

Headphones have a big impact on the 81x series sound signature. You will get a lot of clarity with the Etymotics, but not much bass at all. I use the Altec IM716's(similar sound to Ety) and find them very bass deficient on the Sony, but pretty good on my JVC. The stock phones are rather bass heavy and muddy, but better on my other two players. A well balanced phone would work the best IMO...I've never heard the Denon 700's but would recommend them as a safe bet.
