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.
