Amp for Sansa Clip+

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
Anyone using an amp with the clip + and what method do you use to hold the amp and the clip together??

Part of the beauty of the Clip is it's small size and handy clip-on ability, making it extremely portable an unobtrusive. To add an amp would be to defeat the purpose of it's design, not to mention that the Clip has surprisingly good sound for such a small device.

If you insist on an amp, why not place a band of elastic or velcro abound the amp and simply CLIP the Sansa to the band?

I have found that the more stuff I need to carry (the larger/heavier it is) the less likely I am to have it with me all the time when I may decide I wish to use it. My Clip and my ER6 never leave my purse.

I use my Clip+ unamped -- but if you can wrap something around your amp (for example, double-sided velcro) perhaps you could simply clip your Clip+ to that?

Exactly. My Clip/Etymotic HF5 combo sounds *amazingly* good playing FLAC source files, and they're so light and tiny I'm hardly aware of them. The extreme portability is like having whipped cream with a cherry on top thrown in for free. Adding a amp would be like buying a Prius and dropping in a big V8. Why?

amp is not for clip, its for headphones, if you mean size then fiio e5

Amp is "not for clip"??? What? You are aware that in this application an amp is used to amplify the output of a SOURCE (the Clip in this case) then feed the amplified signal to a headphone, right?

nevermind

Ah, I simply misread your comment since the OP didn't mention the cans he was using. At any rate, I was commenting on the need for even considering an amp in this instance. As an alternative, perhaps the OP should think about the possibility of going with a headphone/earphone that would provide excellent performance without one. As NiceCans rightly pointed out, strapping an amplifier to a tiny device like the Clip totally defeats one of its design triumphs.

well i'm actually using UM3X and Turbines, and I normally use my Ipod with a 2Move, just wondering if anyone uses an amp with the Clip =)

On the odd occasion, I do use my Clip+ with a FiiO E5 on bass bost for that extra kick, cans used being the Grado SR325is.

yea.. the Clip + lacks a slight kick on the bass on some tunes =)
post #13 of 73
Hmmm I wouldn't say that. The Clip+ has plenty ample bass with my other cans (KSC75, PX100). I just feel like the SR325is needs extra slam for some genres e.g. doom, gothic.

The clip and e5 are practically the same size, and combined are still smaller than most players out there.

My BSG cmoy works nice with my Clip+, but it really doesn't make a whole lot of difference. It adds a little more punch here and there, but nothing too substantial.
