Wow! Sansa Fuze- color me impressed- Fuze appreciation thread - Page 23

post #331 of 767
I am using a Radioshack 3.5mm to 3.5mm (ie mini to mini) with my Fuze in my car and it works fine. Are you sure you are using a stereo mini to mini and not a mono one?

I know my Klipsch X10 headphone end has a problem connecting properly with the Fuze and I get no music, just a skipping sound. If I pull it out just a slight 1 mm or half a mm, the problem goes away. All my other phones work fine with it otherwise.

i ordered a fuze too and im going to be using a pair of x10's with them too. does it happen to all fuzes and x10's? or is it only a few fuzes? is it a hassle to have to pull it out that much?

well I have three fuzes at home now and it happens only on one (with UM2 and HD595 in my cade). all are v1. I have sorted the problem with cutting the 1mm thick top from old comply foam earplug (the gum part that is inside) and put it on jack. It works like magic now.

I am not sure if it is with all Fuzes and X10s. What I do know is though I have to pull it out slightly to have it working, it by no means it is loose. It stays fine in that position and won't get pulled out. The only problem is if you add enough pressure on the top to push the headphone back in which shouldn't be an issue if it is in a pocket without crap pushing on top of it. Though I have alot of portable headphones, the Klipsch X10s are what I pair with my Fuze the most (well that is until I just got my Sennheiser IE8 in the mail today). Like veli, I could make a mini washer from some unused ear tip and place it inbetween for peace of mind but it works the way I have it now with no issues.

I have a feeling my issue is an isolated thing with my combo and don't think all Fuzes and X10s have this problem. Not sure of how many others on these boards have a Fuze and X10 combo.

Anyone tried the Fuze with a set of E4c earphones? If so, how does it sound? Thanks!
post #337 of 767
anyone has minior problems with playing WAV files on Fuze like ocassional hickups (short breaks, like once every song)?

and also dbpoweramp seems to write Tags to WAV files (according to them it is perfectly OK) and seems Fuze interprets them as 1sec noise before each song !?

and wow, listening to WAV on Fuze with UM2 makes FLAC sounds like average MP3s. the whole new world of lows and highs and better sound stage !!

Happy New Year !!

It's very annoying how people are reporting that WAV sounds better than FLAC, because that means I will have to try it myself. But isn't lossless, lossess? Why would FLAC not sound as good as WAV?

FLAC decoder in Fuze ... I don't know. Maybe it is just subjective, but I can really hear the difference.

I love my new Sansa Fuse 4Gb. It's the best mp3 player I've ever had. I would even say better than my Creative Zen Vision:M which is still running strong after a year, however, I wanted something more portable and has flash memory. Sandisk got it right when they designed the Fuse to be truly user friendly as well as having excellent sound quality.

Anyways, I would like to know what hard cases I can get for my Fuse. Here in Canada there are very few options. I don't like silicon cases. Leather cases are okay, but I want something which has a screen protector too. My player is just a couple days old and there are marks on the front. Why they can't make a durable glass front is beyond me. I would seriously pay $10 more just for this upgrade. Now I have to buy a case which might cost more! Absurd.

hey, i ordered a fuze too but its comming in. but, i already ordered some stuff that u might be interested in. heres the hard case u might like

Clear Crystal Case for SanDisk Sansa Fuze

and heres the screen protector, this screen protector is possibly the best. i used something called best skins ever for my ZVM, but i sold it. this stuff works just as good.

ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | Sandisk Sansa Fuze Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield

theres a full body cover meaning it covers the whole thing. or just a screen protector. i just got the screen one.

funny story, i use to have a ZVM too until i sold it to get a fuze recently for the same reasons as u. something more portable and such.

I've experience w/ both the hard case (for a sony 818) and the Zagg invisible shield (for the fuze). The hard (lexan?) crystal case adds a lot of thickness to the player but it gives you a little piece of mind in that it seems to be really tough making your mp3 seem bomb-proof. But it is pretty thick making the player not so svelte. I bought the full body invisible shield for the fuze figuring i could practice putting the shield on the back before I got to doing the front. I ended up putting the back on perfectly and the front not quite as well (left a finger print, doh). I think i'd advise just getting the invisible shield screen protector. That will be pretty easy to apply - remember to wet your fingers first! The invisible shield is very nearly invisible and makes your player easier to grip. It's pretty cool stuff. I used all of the pieces including the cutout for the scroll wheel. Think i'd advise not doing that as it makes the scroll wheel kinda sticky and not as spin friendly.

Anyway, get the inv. shield screen protector. That's my 2 cents.

i use to get the whole front best skins ever for my ZVM, it came with the protector for the sliding bar in the middle to navigate, i tried it on, but i didnt like it, it made the sliding part hard to move across cuz it had all this grip so i took it off.

You can't believe everything you read. Anyone who says they can hear the diff between WAV and FLAC basically loses all credibility in my book.

x10 or m5 for fuze and A818?

I expect this has been covered in this thread but how do you search individual threads?

So a bit of feedback would be appreciated in reference to which IEM has the best synergy w/ the fuze and/or A818 (i've got both). Right now my premium IEMs are the Denon c751 and c551. I like them both but they sound a bit clinical and neither one really stays put very well in my ears. I've tried complys but they make my ears itch like they are made of wool.

From what I gather the x10 are better across the freq spectrum and more comfy and the m5 are better for low end extension and durability. For the sake of argument, let's imagine that both are equally appealing. How then would their respective synergies w/ the fuze (primarily) and/or the sony A818 tip the balance toward either of them? Did someone say that the x10 doesn't like the fuze headphone jack?

I find the c751 too hot w/ the A818 (no EQ) if that helps. I like the laid back sound of the supplied ex82 phones but they don't have enough bass extension. And I listen to jazz from standard/acoustic to acid jazz and nu jazz (but no jazz-lite!)

EDIT: Doing some reading I came across reports of very fragile x10's so the Klipsch are out as I want phones that last. So now I'm interested in knowing if peeps like the Atrio w/ the fuze. Is that combo too dark? I'm confident that they'll be good w/ the A818 which is a little bit hot on its own.

Thanks for your input!
