Was just wondering if anyone had tried the 200 gig microsd card with the clip plus yet?  I know that 128 gig works fine!

 

Nope, sorry.

How much music files are there on your 128 GB card? I think there's a file-number limit, maybe somewhere around 8000 IIRC. Probably just a limitation in view of the database, not accessability. I haven't reached that high a file number, though, and just use a 64 GB card.

I've got a 128GB card & I've no idea how many files are on it. A lot though. There is a limit, you're right about that. I don't know what it is though.

This thread isn't the most active but I was talking to a friend the other night & I told him that, honestly, the single best hi-fi investment I've ever made is my Clip+. Outstanding value!

I agree with the above poster. I never really liked portable setups until I purchased the Clip+ (cost a little less than 40 euro on eBay UK). It fits perfectly in my HiFiMAN RE400 carrying case so my setup is always with me. Running Rockbox of course.

I have RHA 750 and Android phone. Will the quality of sound output improves with Sansa Clip+ ? 

 

edit: mostly listening to mp3, no flac and similar

Probably, but not by much. Your phone's battery will thank you though & it's much easier to carry a Clip+ than a phone for the times when you might not need a phone. That was my rationale anyway. My Samsung Note 3 sounds noticeably worse than the Clip+ but some phones are better, it depends.

I bought a sansa clip used for only 17 dollars, been using it for almost a year. My first sansa clip lasted about 2 years. Built quality is crap, but they're cheap.

I'm receiving what is something like my fifth clip today, in the form of the clip+. Excited. Been on a long musical hiatus.

I've spent a lot of time this past year reading up on all the other players on the market. Many don't do gapless. Many have a lousy UI. Many are much too expensive for what they are. Most don't up the game where storage is concerned.

In the end, I decided to just get a second Clip+.

I now have one with a 128GB uSD card and one with a 64GB uSD card and enough juice to listen all day long.

I've just landed a super cheap pair of Sony EX650 and I couldn't be happier. They have a much more balanced sound than the drowning in bass sound of the EX500LPS I was using before. I used to wear them loose to lessen the bass! These EX650 are superior in every way and for less than a tenner. Happy I am.

Where did you order the clip from if you don't mind me asking?

I got it from MyMemory for £25 but I think they are all gone now.

Thanks for the reply, figured that was the case.  Kicking myself over not getting another one when they were available :(

Build quality of the Clip+ is actually quite good, except for the clip. My Clip+ that is over 6 years years old still works fine, except that the clip broke off around two years ago. Due to its light weight and low density, the Clip+ does have a cheap feel to it though. I liked how the Fuze felt. It had much greater density than the Clip+. The problem with the Fuze though was that the wheel would occasionally stick. If they would have made the Fuze with buttons like on the Clip+ instead of the scroll wheel, and with a standard mini usb connector, it would have been great.

We've had two Clips+ with broken earphone jacks. One died but back to life a couple of times before dying permanently. Currently have one Clip+ with one earphone working and on zip. 

 

Our Sony players have lasted much longer. One had the battery changed. That said they had an easier life.
