I do actually. Most of the time.
But as for my fairly pressing question of deleting Rockbox, any idea ?
Seems the EU now authorize rooting one's phone, surely this must be allowed ?

I would, just to be on the safe side.

I'm using it with the Philips SHE 3590. (I've tried my HD 595, but it was too much for the Clip+.)

I guess that the Clip+ needs quite a bit of burn in?

What do you think? How long did it take for your Clip+ or Zip to sound good?

 

I got my 8gb Clip + and She 3590's just recently...

 

Rockboxed the clip. Added lossless and lossy files...also has 16gb SD card..

 

Sounds great...tweak the EQ as these buds are bassy....

tweak the Crossfeed, 

 

and with the right settings this combination is awesome!!!!!

make sure buds are all the way in creating isolation and bass...

 

Waiting for Fiio E6 to arrive with Comply tx-400's

I can post my settings for rockboxed clip+  with SHE 3590's EQ and Crossfeed if you like....

As for the Clip+ vs Rockbox debate, without Rockbox the Clip+ is better since the original Clip Zip firmware doesn't provide enough song information when playing a song, and the battery status is very hard to read when the screen brightness is set low(to save battery power). With Rockbox though, the larger screen on the Clip Zip is much more useful, and with Rockbox I can have white letters displayed on a black screen on the Clip Zip, which is very readable even at a very low screen brightness.

 

I have both the Clip+ and Clip Zip and both are Rockboxed. I used the Clip+ for a few years before installing Rockbox, but put Rockbox on my Clip Zip around a week after I started using it. The original firmware on the Clip Zip frustrated me that much. I don't particularly like the green and yellow colored Clip+ display, and prefer the white letters on a black background  I can get with the Rockboxed Clip Zip.

An amp will not improve the SQ of the Zip, it will simply give you more power so it will play louder.

^ That's what I want to know too. Ever since I've since I've had my galaxy player with Sound Alive, I've definitely noticed that the zip clip sound and other players I've owned down even compare.

 

Also wanted to know if there's a faster way to transfer music on to it, since it's ridiculously slow using micro sd cards.

Good quality headphones...

High quality files also is a must for SQ...

That is not completely correct. If the player can't drive the headphones well enough, such as with the Sony V6, then adding an amp will help the sound quality. Without an amp the V6 sounds constrained when hooked up to a Clip+ or Clip Zip. If the player can adequately power the headphones to very loud volumes though, then an amp probably won't improve the sound quality.

You guys need to be checking out C&C BH and adding that with your Sansa players.

Read about it here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/644363/c-c-bh-portable-headphone-amp-80-hours-from-a-single-charge-buyer-review

As for the Sony V6, you should hear them through Hisounds Studio V, absolutely wonderful.

Fiio E6 works great for me..warms up the bass and boosts volume nicely 

That C&C looks like some good stuff...

To improve the equalizer on the Clip+, use Rockbox.

The Highsound Studio V is something like 13x the price of the Clip+. It is easier to use a different headphone with the Clip+ instead(or to use a Fiio E6 with the V6).
