iRiver "H" series vs. Sansa's (Fuze and Clip+)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So, I've been reading a lot about the great sound quality of the old iRiver "H" series players, specifically the H-120/IHP-120 and H-140/IHP-140.  I've never heard any of the iRiver's.  I have a Sansa Clip+ and a Fuze (the older version, not the Fuze+).  The sound quality is pretty good on my Sansa's for what they are.  But I'm wondering if it would be worth seeking out one of the older iRiver players since I've been reading so much about how great they sound.

 

Does anyone have any experience with both, and if so, how do the old iRiver's compare sound-quality wise to the Sansa's?  Would it be worth seeking out one of the old iRiver's on the used market?  Would it be a true sonic upgrade over the Sansa's?  I know the iRiver's are kind of old at this point, which is why I ask.  Thanks.

Iriver "H" is better, it's legend player as ifp, e10, rio karma and x5

Clip+ is neutral, it's great player is that price, good for IEM's

Iriver is neutral/cold, have more power, better sound space, separation of instruments, better bass and treble. You can connect full headphones to them and will be really good.

I had iRiver H120 before.  The headphone out isn't that great like people review in this forum.  

 

The good part of it is it has a digital output that you can feed to your amp directly.

I've got a iHP140 and the Clip+. The former is definitely the better player, but for portability, not so great.

My H320 has quite a high output-Z.

I'm still wondering whether to get a Clip+.
