Hi, Im just going off eBay really as another huge thread about the Z1060 said it was the best place to find them. You may be right though and I could be missing out on some good deals from the US...hmmm....although I dont see any z1060s from the US on the bay...

And a Sansa Clip+ is probably as good sonically as virtually anything - and a lot better than some Sony's driving typical IEMs because of a distorted frequency response:


..where flatter is better. Anyway, if you want great sound quality the place to put your money is in the IEMs or headphones rather than the player - those SE530's would be one reasonable bet, or HD25s if you want actual headphones that can live crammed into a messenger bag and provide decent isolation on the Tube.

Hi I hadnt really thought of that tbh! maybe I could just reset the region setting hmmm. With many of these players being Android-based though....maybe the controllers could even limit the volume remotely in the future....rendering all my research and saving useless :D


Anyways, Im really confused now about this IEM business! I thought IEMs involved recievers and were generally used by musicians and stuff...not mp3 users! It seems I havent done enough research after all :D

The senheiser IE9 headphones etc.....do they have the IE code because they are IEMs? 

Yeah im a confused noob :)


thanks for the info!
