Does the battery life change when using the line-out instead of the headphone-out? I've never tried the line-out of my Touch.

I have the Clip Zip and love it. FM reception is topnotch. I use them to drive my Senn HD 280 for hard rock. Nice gadget from Scandisk.

It should use less power right? 'cause of not using its own internal dac/amp?

Hi,

 

Does anyone have any idea if the clip zip can be rockboxed using clip+'s firmware or when the firmware for clip zip will be out?

 

Thank you.

Clip+ firmware does not work. Rockbox for Clip Zip is available now for the experienced user, if you know where to look.....and one of the developers said the other day that it would be available in the Rockbox Utility very soon for everyone else.

Looking forward to seeing what number you get to and comparing it to your headphone-out time.

only 25 hours, so not much difference, this is all playing lossless, leaving it playing constantly. So headphone out at low/medium volume 24 hours, LOD out 25 hours.

This is all non-scientific and just a home experiment.

no problem. If you have any other ipod related questions dont hesitate to ask.

So if I were to get a player now, I should invest in the clip zip instead of the clip+?

 

Thanks for the prompt reply!

I would say yes, unless you find a great sale price on a Clip+.

Have they worked out the resume issues that the Clip Zip had? Most who prefer the Clip Zip to the Clip+ don't seem to play many podcasts or audiobooks.
