Hello. I am a hearing-imparied person, both ears, 30% hearing left, cause is genetic disorder, eveything is physically fine .
So, I want an mp3 player that is loud. I know Cowon players are loud, 6 years ago i've used iaudio F2 player and it's loudness was okay, suitable for my needs at that time (listened with CX300 in-ears). That is player is long gone, sniff :(. It was a good fellow.
But today I have tons of music I want on the go (I listen everything random :p). My needs/wishes:
2. Memory slot or high capacity
3. Long battery life (no less than 20 hours)
4. Small form (so i can take it out on cycling, skating and such)
5. Tactile buttons (no touchsreens, player will mostly be in my pocket)
Last four points is not hard to find nowadays (except maybe mem slot). But it find it difficult to find which players are loud (searched for mW/channel output).
Mostly all people whom posts I read have healty hearing (since they don't state if they have low hearing) so I couldn't relate to their reviews and impressions.
Currently I don't have any good in-ears, only Denon AH-D1001. Oh, and budget range, up to 150$. Either only player or with some in-ears or with amp or everything in package.
Thank you in advance for all your help and suggestions. :)
