Not likely but it could damage your headphones...

While the Clip is excellent I feel that it does not go well with some headphones. For example, the SE530 sounds rubbish out of the Clip while the TF10 sounds excellent.

Time for me to retire the clip, moving onto the HiFIMan HM-601.

Why would that damage your headphones?

Loaded my tunes on the clip+, and on my 32gb microSD card - and WOW!!! I can't use my iPod classic now,...it's crap compared to this!! And all those who say there's no "night & day" difference between a Rockboxed clip+ and most other players are crazy!!! My HP's are singing, even my HFI-780's are sounding so SWEET!!! And the volume is damn LOUD!!! I love it,...WooT!!!

I use a rockboxed Clip+ at the gym with Klipsch S4 iems and it's perfect. Maybe the best bass setup I have (and I'm a typical head-fi addict with gobs of phones) The rockbox lets me play Apple Lossless which is a huge convenience given my library. The only downside is I am farsighted and the rockbox interface has tiny tiny tiny type compared to the stock Sansa interface. I have several iPods and the Clip really does beat them all on sound quality.

I have one of those and a 64GB Touch on my Amazon.com wishlist, but I'm not sure if anyone will take the plunge.....the economy does suck, after all.wink_face.gif

You can easily change the font and font size(?) in the Display Settings.

Does anyone else hear a little squeak when they pause and unpause with fade to pause turned on?

I don't use the fade to pause....sorry!

post #536 of 891

Yeah me neither normally, if you get the chance can you turn it on and see. I seem to get it when I pause in loud parts of music.

Edit: And in relation to damaging your headphones I don't think it's very likely unless the DC resistance of your headphones is very low.

I would say 0db....but what 'phones are you using, do you really need an amp?

post #540 of 891

I'm using the livewires. I know many people said they don't need an amp but to my ears the they sound fuller and more authoritative to my ears with an amp.

and thank you for the prompt replyregular_smile%20.gif
