Sony NWZ-A818 8GB

Sony NWZ-A818 8GB

“The smallest, toughest, yet great sounding player you can buy. Though that really depends on your luck, but it can be found for as low as 20 euros on eBay, other classifieds, or your local electronic pawn shops. Having bought mine in 2008 as a birthday present, and been listening to it primarily as a main on-the-go DAP now and then, there must be some nice and critical things to be said about...” --stuartfang

Cowon S9 32 GB Video MP3 Player with Touchscreen (Titanium Black)

Cowon S9 32 GB Video MP3 Player with Touchscreen (Titanium Black)

“Value: Not cheap; Not expensive. Does the most basic function of a DAP... it plays music... Perfectly.   Audio Quality: Once you spend over $100 on a pair of headphones, your source suddenly becomes the limiting factor in the quality of sound, a distorting Ipod would not suffice, neither would a Zune. I bought the S9 and have yet to hear a legitimate competitor. Custom settings make anything...” --stevenswall

Apple iPod nano 16 GB Black (5th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

Apple iPod nano 16 GB Black (5th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

“The moment my eardrums met the sound of my new nano, they were disappointed. Although i was using my trusty Koss PortaPros the bass felt weaker than my 1st gen iPod touch. the sound was also not as crisp as my itouch. after a few weeks i noticed an improvement in the sound. the highs and lows seem to be getting tighter, so is the bass. i wasnt aware that the equalizer is something that needs to...” --SpkrHead

Creative Zen Vision: M

Creative Zen Vision: M

“I've got nothing bad to say about the Vision: M. It is seen as the best MP3 player made by Creative, and while I only have experience with four Creative DAP:s, I have to agree. It might not be the best sounding MP3 player out there, but it's got a nice and smooth sound and an okay custom EQ. I got mine used from Ebay in 2009. The hard drive was dead and the player was pretty beat up. I put a CF...” --Danneq

HiFiMAN HM-801

HiFiMAN HM-801

“ REVIEW of HM-801:   I've had a loaner 801 here for a week and a half, playing a multitude of 24/96 hi-res downloads and 16/44 FLAC or WAV files, and all I can say is that I've already emailed Fang that I want to buy this one to replace my iMod/Vcap dock.       I took it to Westone on Wednesday to try out their new ES5 demos which sounded wonderful with it (better balance, depth and...” --HeadphoneAddict

HifiMan Electronics HM-700 DAC with RE-400b Balanced In-Ear Headphones (Black)

HifiMan Electronics HM-700 DAC with RE-400b Balanced In-Ear Headphones (Black)

“First I’d like to thank HiFiMAN for sending me their new HM-700 DAP and RE-400B (balanced version of the RE-400) bundle for me to review. I have always wondered about the balanced players that HiFiMAN offers and what they do to balanced IEMs. From what I hear, the RE-400B is a very nice match with the HM-700 in balanced mode.     Now, if you are around on Head-Fi often, you...” --lin0003

Apple iPod touch 32 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

Apple iPod touch 32 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

“ Was given this through a reward scheme - and after using a Cowon iAudio7 as my main portable source - I was really interested to see how it performed.  I'm using Shure SE420 IEM's.   After converting my FLAC collection to ALAC - I loaded it up via iTunes, and then ran it through it's paces.  First impressions - really easy to use (intuitive), fun to play with, but...” --Brooko
