What generation Touch do you have?
There is no 13 in Rockbox....the highest it goes is 6. And my files are all ReplayGained to 89db, with the pre-amp is set at 0.0. I don't know, maybe you have a pre-cut dialed in that I don't.....but -13 volume, even with the bass and treble both at 0, is still pretty loud....I wouldn't want to listen to more than a song or two at that volume.
haha I just noticed that it only goes up to positive 6 dbs, damn you are scaring me now. Yeah I normally listen to my music on the clip + with zero bass/ trebel boosts and volume at lower 20s dbs for IEMs but was messing around with it on my S500s to get that lush bassy FX40 sound and that setting was gold for me. Well I turn it down to -14 sometimes when the music is really well mastered but it's on -13 for most of the time, am I going deaf??? ahahahahaha
What volume do you set your sansa when listening with your S500s with no amp? For me when the volume is on lower 20 db is too thin/ soft. So it has to be in the lowered to 16 to 13 to get the right sound. Trying it now on zero treble/ bass and on volume -13 sounds like my ipod classic/ nano, kinda thin in sound, not enough body. Damn you have me crazy concerned now. ha
I think you are right. They get plenty loud with just the Rockbox Clip+ I have. This is the benefit of the S500. It does not need an amp to boost the volume of the Clip+.
Although I guess if someone wanted bass boost, then the E11 would make sense. (I can't imagine why with how much bass they already put out. )
LoL the Fff is with all these star trek avatars? Must be that time of the month again eh..... C'mon doc go cop one and join the funzies, these babies are perfect for working out/ running, DAT CLIP feature > ALL.
Well It don't have to be a clip thing only. Not everyone is gonna have a clip. We will pick a day. It will be more or less for the guys that own the HA-S500. But I will call it Clip n S500 Day..Maybe by next week pending how quick Gee here gets his clip..
Ok good idea.. Come with the ideas fellas. It will be interactive. You guys are the ones calling it whatever. We need some excitement in these threads. I will change the thread title to whatever you guys name it. Come with the ideas. And I will consider it all. Hows about the first ever Carbon NanoClip day. Play with your NanoCLIP Day. Brought to you by the hard working members of Headfi.org. Music impressions from your portable. A day we share what we listen to using our HA-S500. Sounds fun.
You know a product is good as so many are recommending..I was surprised about the sound on them first time I heard them I was mighty impressed. It has a nice clean tight sound. Sounds much more high end then the price would say.
Since everyone have clips we all should do something fun on this thread. How about Clip n HA-S500 night..So you guys that have them with clips and E11 we all listen at the same time and then we report back. Anyone game? We will pick one day and everyone get your HA-S500 on with what ever mod pads with a clip. Anyone?
Better yet I will wait till you get your clip and then I will pick a day for this. Who's in.? Just get one Gee.
Thinking of it!
I recently have downloaded some tunes off of iTunes, and I used iTunes to rip some cd's. The files are "MPEG-4 Audio (.m4a)" format. I think that's the same thing as "Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) " files.
Anyway, this is what the Sansa Clip+ says:
And this is what the Sansa Clip Zip says:
Am I correct in thinking that I would have to get the Zip in order to join in on the Clip party?
The Clip+ amp/DAC test by that guy that is longer on head-fi is quite insightful. It compares measurements directly with the iPod Touch, and the Clip+ scores better on some metrics than the iPod, such as no clipping at maximum output. Might be why the Clip+ doesn't seem to need an amp with the S500s.
Maybe I'll bring my E17 home from my office and try it. However, I don't need more volume from the Clip. My hearing is already damaged (lol).
