what do you mean by old-fashioned sound? more analog sounding (highs roll-off), compared to newer DAPs? I have the hm801 and like the fact that it sounds more "analog" (less bright) than other players, that's why I was also thinking about buying the hm601/2 for a more portable option with similar sound tuning to the hm801

 

I don't really know how to describe it.

But the sensation is somewhat analog to listening the beatles' songs after you've listened to modern pop songs.

 

Maybe this is related to the use of Sigmatel STMP3770 but I'm not certain...

I received my Hm-700  2 days ago and when connecting unbalanced earphones directly it just plays in mono. Using the adapter cable (one end into the usb and the other into the earphone jack lets you use any other earphone but seriously messes up the sleek look of the player. The dap itself sounds very good and it looks amazing.
