How about giving us more information.

Budget, preferences, etc.

Budget is nearly $120, and My sound preferences are like excellent lows, very gud mids and very gud highs. It should have FM also but it's not that much important. All in all, I need a player which can drive any earphones to the best level. Though I have chosen NuForce NE-6

Cake and eat it too?

 

Do you have any models you've been looking at already? We're not here to do all the work for you.

I have luking towards SanDisk Sansa Clip+, Nationite S-Flo2(but lack of FM), Cowon D2+.

 

Anything else u would like to suggest me?

Hmm with that limiting budget I think the Sansas (Clip+/Fuze) or the s:flo2, hang on or the Hippo-Gumstick (which I know nothing about) would be your best options.

The Cowon D2+ is a nifty little player but is largely outdated by todays standards.

Any other recommendations coz I know that s-flo 2 beats fuze hands down by the gud margin but it do not have FM

 

So do u have any other to suggest ?

As I said before on a limited budget the Clip+/Fuze are very hard to go past. I personally have a Clip+ and whilst I know it is not THE best sounding player on the market at the moment for the price it's unbeatable (in my opinion). It's a great little player with the ability to Rockbox, microSD slot, radio, FLAC support etc.

Any other than clip+ and fuze. I can extend my budget. I just want the best sounding MP3 Player

The best sounding is the HiFiMan Hm-801 which goes for around $800 USD, followed by it's little brother the HiFiMan HM-602 which is yet to be released but is estimated to be between $300-400 USD then we get to the s:flo2 with it's HO (Headphone Out) which rolls off trebble and a brilliant LO (Line Out) for $100-200 USD then we get down into mass produced players like the Cowon J3, iPods (arguably) and Sony X1000 which go for $200-300 USD followed by the cheaper Sansa players for around $100.

Of course this is all my opinion so don't take it as words of fact.

What sound good to u, might sound bad for me. Source is just a link in the big chain. Getting a USD500-1000 source and paired it with USD5 earphone, it will still sound bad.

Thanku Hero Kid and all who helped me in this thread

 

I have decided now to buy Nationite S:Flo2 2GB. I know that this Player can drive any earphone and headphones with awesome sound quality. Thank you all once again.
