First question, which may be a dumb one, but I'm clueless with this topic.
Are FLAC files actually that much better than MP3?
Next question, I've heard that the Sansa Clip+ can support FLAC files. That means that playing a FLAC file of a song I like on the Sansa will sound better than listening to the same song through MP3 on my Zune, correct?
Like I said, I'm clueless when it comes to this, as I'm relatively new to the sq world. I'm trying to explore options for increasing sound quality without buying new headphones again or an amp.
My original plan was to buy a smaller portable audio player that supports FLAC and is sub $75 preferably, and use the ATH-M50's.
Is the Sansa Clip+ powerful enough to drive full size headphones?
Couple side questions:
Of the different players that support FLAC...
Which has better battery life?
Which has better overall sq?
Which is a better deal?
If you can answer any of these questions, please do, it would be greatly appreciated.
