But u c ppl u r forgettin where u r listenin 2 ur MD players, 99% of da time u r listen in a very noisy places like on da BUS, TRAIN, STREET, TRAIN stations etc. How can u tell da difference between a 5mw and 3.5mw in terms of sound quality in that enviroment, if u can good on u but i dont think many could.
If it is in a slient enviroment thats a different story.
1) More power means more volume. While I don't listen loud, many people do, and many people complain that even 5mW isn't enough to play loud enough for them. So 3.5 is clearly going to be too little. If you can't even turn the headphone up loud enough to hear it, why bother?
2) Many people here use good quality headphones that also isolate external noise. With headphones like Etys, you can and will be able to hear the difference in sound quality.
3) Many people *also* use their portables in environments *other* than buses or trains. So better sound would seem to be relevant.
4) If people aren't ever going to be able to hear the difference, as you claim, why bother with MD? Why not just get a junky MP3 player?
|Or u can go 4 E909 extra battery life, better remote style, its lighter and da sound i 'll say is da same as E900.
Lighter? 7g lighter -- talk about not being able to tell the difference -- and with the E900, those 7g get you a much better built unit. When it comes to portable players, I'll gladly carry 7 more grams (do you realize how *light* 7 grams are?) if it means the unit will be sturdier and will last longer.
Better remote style? They're basically identical.
Extra battery life? Again, talk about not being able to tell the difference. As I said before, once you get over 40 hours of battery life, extra battery life is pretty much marketing glitz. How many people will be away from their charger/AC adapter for over 40 hours of actually using their player?
Sorry to be so harsh, but I just don't like people blindly recommending something just because they own it, and not being able to admit that there is something better out there than what they own. Show me a player that is clearly better than the E900 and I'll recommend it wholeheartedly. But the E909 isn't it. It's an inferior player that is for the most part a step backwards and is hyped only because it's newer.
