Last year I have bought a Cowon C2 & Shure 215 and last week, the touchscreen stopped working (I tried to fix it but I failed). After the Cowon died I returned to listen music from my smartphone, which sucks compared to the Cowon. It seems that I became an addicted audiophile who can't live without his head gear. Now I'm on a budget maximum $100.
I want some help buying an MP3 player that have similar SQ of my former Cowon but cheap. I want a basic MP3 player without the fancy feature (videos; apps touchscreen etc.). I just want a good SQ MP3 player. I usually use my player for just about anything, sports, car or just laying down on the bed. I listen to electronic music (house, electro, trance etc.), so bass is very important, but from time to time I listen to rock, metal.
**Is buying an additional headphone amp will enhance the SQ on the Shure SE 215?
I’m very confused and don’t know which is the best MP3 player for my needs. Need Some audiophiles help
