Mp3 player instead of using Phone ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Yes it seem my plans to use The samsung Galaxy S II as mp3 player will not work cause all reports I have heard so far says that sound is of very bad quality, but I still really want the phone though. I have never had an mp3 player before so I am not at all familiar with the market, I wonder....what mp3 player is the top choice for you audiophiles ?

 

And does it exist audiophile solutions where you can use the internal phone memory through usb or bluetooth or wifi ??? 

Cause...memory is expensive if I could use it from the phone it would be the best..so I do not need to pay for the memory n the mp3 player... All I really want..is a good audiophile sound chip.. the best would be to just plug it into the usb port on the phone... but I guess...it might not exist...as I said I am quite new t the market.... and yes if nothing of this exist I guess I will have to choose an normal mp3 player with internal memory...atleast 8-16 gb or more... 

 

I will use the beyerdynamics DT 1350 headphones.

 

Thanks for the help...I hope people will be objective and not just recommend what they own themselves..

Well, if you want something cheap and good sounding, how about a Sansa Clip +? It is small and cheap and well liked around here. I do not own one myself, but it seems to be popular and described as good sounding.

 

Do you have any MicroSD cards with your phone? You could use the same one for the Clip. I doubt that you could plug it into your phone and access the music there.

 

The Clip goes up to 8GB, and you can use ordinary MicroSD cards, so you could get up to 40GB from something the size of a match box.

Yeah I guess memory is very cheap nowdays...and class 4 for mp3players might be overkill also ?

The Sansa Clip+ looks interesting, the price is very good and very small size, but all this also makes me skeptic, as you might understand it does not make sense to buy expensive headphones like DT 1350 then a cheap mp3 player that does not give them justice ??? But I might be wrong.. would be nice to see how the sound quality compare to other more expensive mp3 players.

I just got a sansa clip today, and I was amazed at how well it sounded.

dont judge something only by its price.The price is something very objective and most of the times is not connected with the real value of the product.Maybe the DT 1350 is overpriced.....

The Clip+ is a cracking little DAP. I also own a Cowon J3 and iPhone 4 and the little Sansa never fails to entertain. It has a slightly warmer/darker presentation than my other DAPs.

i used to use my cans out of my phone, but since i have bought a sansa clip+ whenever i try to use my phone it just sounds so bad. The clip+ is very good.

Would be very nice to see a frequency response test of the sansa clip+ ...

 

Cause according to this review the sound in the Samsung Galaxy S2 

sounds good with no resistance...maybe...with an external headphone amplifier it can be good ?

the clip+ is linear all the way, very flat response. There is a graph somewhere, Comparing it to the iPod touch.

but its not all about frequency response, its output too. I dont know the technical terms, but theres also total harmonic distortion THD and other factors, not being the FQ reponse
