Colorfly C3 vs iPod Nano 6g

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have an Ipod Nano 6g. I'm thinking about upgrading it. How does the Colorfly C3 sound, in comparison to the nano 6g?  I listen using Westone 2.

 

Please mention whether you have heard either daps.

I used to own the C3, and i have the Nano 7g... so can't really give a comparison with the 6g, but if the sound is similar with 7g then i'd say C3 is a step up in terms of clarity, separation and details.

In comparison, 7g has a warmer sound signature which makes it more fun and dynamic sounding.

C3 is very clean and on the bright side.

If you are looking for a neutral/analytical/monitoring type then C3 is the better choice.

Nano 7g is for the fun and easy/laid back type.

C3 is lacking in tightness and control IMO, mostly due to the lack of power if the load is a bit demanding. I prefer nano 7G directly to headphone. But as a source to feed an amp, C3 is easily better.

 

Anyway, I don't think you can directly compared result with nano 6G vs. 7G. I think the 7G is a step-up from 6G as far as SQ goes.

The latest ipod nano is the most underrated product on head-fi.

not even ak120 could replace it as my on the go dap. It is light, esau to use and great battery life.

it pairs great with all iem and while it doesnt sound as open as i want it to be it is in no way a bad sounding gear.

Yep, haven't heard the 6G, hence the disclaimer that 'if' it sounds similar to 7G. smily_headphones1.gif
I didn't notice any lack in tightness or control with easy to drive IEMs. But that could be the case with harder to drive cans.

For its size it does really well. Though i only use it for gym/jogging purposes.

Thanks all.Along with the replies from C3 appreciation thread, that gives me confidence to go ahead with the purchase of C3. I will buy it once I get to US.
