It also depends on whether your MP3 is low-passed. A lot of people these days have a lowpass of like 20 or even 18kHz on their 320K MP3s and that is a lot of loss.

Thanks for the reply back ok-guy, i really appreciate it. I'm desperate to buy the gun metal walkman so if alex is able to get some more of them in by the end of november i am willing to wait and buy one same time as you. I did set aside some money to purchase the walkman, but i guess i could use the money for my train tickets lol. I'm a student working for the NHS. Anyway pm to let me know what he says with regards to getting more gun metal walkmans.

Never owned single android-based devices so I am pretty clueless. Anyone know how to conserve battery? I went to settings and stopped most apps that were running in the background.

disconnect wi-fi & bluetooth.. then put in 'airplane' mode.

 

also when you're not using it 'power-off'... otherwise it's in stand-by mode using battery.

 

lastly, if you pull headphone out to talk to someone, it should go into 'stand-by' mode (saves fiddling about turning it off etc).

Thanks for hooking me up Alex. Sadly I don't think I can afford to buy the 64gb due to tight budget being a student. Hope it didn't cause any problems.

 

Interesting. Do you have the NW-Z series? Does it hiss with that too? I've got the TG!334.

Unfortunately I never tried the Z series, just the F and it hisses quite a bit. But it seems that cn11 doesn't hear hiss at all with his TG!334. Maybe US version doesn't hiss as much.

@alex,

can you tell me the EQ diff of Z and F series?

since you said the SQ is quite the same, i was wondering about the EQ? which is better?

 

also, can the Z series upgrade android to 4.0?

I found the Z to have more punch in the bass and a little bit more powerful and warmer sounding than the F.  The F sounds flatter and more neutral with more details.  Soundstage is better on the F.  The difference are not drastic but it is there.  Tested with my JH13pro playing Flac on my F807 and Atrac Lossless on my Z1070.  Operation wise, the F walkman is more responsive & quicker.  We can thank ICS for that.

like what purk describe, warmer sound would be X > Z > F, clarity wise would be the other way around.

all are from sony, same s master mx amp so on, won't say which is better but rather which you prefer.

personally, anything with a chip on it i would go for the latest otherwise i'll go for the classic.beerchug.gif

They said the Z will get the ICS upgrade toward the end of the year.  Don't quote me on it.  The F walkman operation is much better than the Z.  Faster with no lag.

Some one is rocking all his portables.  We all have to be jealous of Turok's collections.

Yup.  Totally agree.  We all have to thank you for helping us getting the F walkman for a very reasonable price.  Yep, the clarity on the F is pretty superb.  I still think the A, F, and Z are on the same level soundwise.  Preference is the key here.

I get very little hiss with my 4.Ai's with the WM-Z normally with older or poorly produced CD's (all my music is uploaded from CD into Atrac-Lossless)... if someone could quantify the 'hiss' question with the WM-F that would be great... I don't mean 'mic-air' that you get with certain recordings that disappears when the music starts, I'm talking about hiss over the music... I trying to figure if it is just with certain sensitive IEM/CEIM's.

post #585 of 1977

I hear hissing on low volume, music turned off.
