Headphones too sensitive for Hisound DAPs?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

So I've been looking into buying a new DAP to upgrade from playing music off my Iphone, and I'm pretty interested in the Hisound Rocoo BA and Studio-V models. The main problem/complaint I've heard about this line of players is the hiss that the produce with highly sensitive headphones. I've got a pair of ATH-Ck10's for my IEM's and I was wondering anyone knows how they would sound with these players? I'd prefer getting the Studio-V, but if the hiss would be too bad I'd definitely lean towards the Rocoo BA as a solution. Or should I just stick with my Iphone?

Why spend so much? Why not get a $35 4GB Sandisk Clip+ and a $19 32GB microSDHC card to put in it?

Clip is no better than an Iphone so while it's quiet, it's a lateral move. The new HiSound Studio 3rd anniversary has reportedly had the noise floor lowered to where you need it. Check the sponsors forum.

Do you hear noise using the Clip+????? I don't. Who cares about measurements that people can't hear.

Do you hear noise using an Iphone? Have you listened to HISound ar making assumptions that whatever you own is best for everyone? I have a clip+, a Fuze, a HiSound and the latest 2 series Ipod touches that are very much like Iphones.

I looked up the Hisound Rocoo BA and wasn't impressed. I noticed the high price, short battery life and small screen. I will accept 12 hour battery life and a small screen in a $35 player, but not in a $150+ player. If I was to buy a $150+ player, I would insist that it has long battery life,  a decent sized high quality screen, and plays video well. I guess others may have different preferences.

The HiSound Studio 3rd anniversary that I recommended he look at has longer battery life than anything else mentioned and he's got his Iphone for other needs. It's not about your needs.

Because the the hisound sounds much better than the clip.

 

I went from a first gen fuze to a cowon device to the hisound.

 

Even rockboxed, the SQ the hisound sounds better than the cowon which sounds better than the rockboxed fuze.

Just get the hisound studio v and switch firmwares. (get the BA firmware) and get the best of both worlds. or purchase an adapter that would take out hiss as well. I own a nationite n2 and hear a hiss but its not too disturbing for me. YMMV.

The FWs are voiced for the individual unots so I'd check with Jack before doing that. The 3rd aniversary will already be there.

Theres someone who reviewed the studio show switched firmwares and indeed encourages to try out firmwares. I believe the reviewer had problems on hiss as well, the BA FW as per reviewer solved the hiss, but lowered volume a bit. about 4 steps iirc. But yeah, ask jack on that anyways biggrin.gif
