If I do decide to get another DAP I'll be looking for recommendations from people who have both the C4 and the DAP (and hopefully listen primarily to classical music!).
No problem, I hope I made any sense. As you know, I find the clip+ a little narrow sounding but that might be different with the C4s. The best thing about this little player is its price. You don't like it? Just give it away!
If you're ever going into hisoundaudio players you should definitely be aware of the hiss of the player. I believe the new nova line has little hiss. But the rocoo p player has a lot of hiss, which can be bothersome in classical music. In very dynamic and fast heavy metal songs hiss is barely a problem, but in slower pieces I can definitely hear a hiss without outside noise.
I'm very curious about that comparison btw!
