    [REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret

    For me the CX300 had a bloated muffled bass. Never heard the CX300 II. I have the CX475 and while a bit too much bass I like them better then the CX300, especially for comfort and fit. The MH1c is in a different league to the CX300 and CX475. Highs, mids and bass a have a depth and balance...

    [REVIEW] Sony MH1 – The Best Kept Secret

    For me get rid of the flat cable and have a Y cable and not a J. If there are to be controls have them below the Y. Anything else is daft. I love the sound of them, but was never able to wear them. Apart from the cable the housing is too far out, with the cable at the end so it will always...

    CALLING ALL IRISH MEMBERS

    I have no budget or time for this anymore :frowning2: I'm barely hanging on to my low fi gear. So I'd have nothing to bring except cloth ears.... Kids have taken over most of my MP3 players and head phones, and nothing survives long in their hands. Last vague music related thing I've done is...

    I love minidisc - is that weird?

    Mini disc are so cool with tiny discs. Wish id not sold mine. But mp3 is just more convenient.

    Apple Touch 5G thread.

    Why are you posting this in this thread? I think you want it to be about the headphone jack. But it's more likely to be the competition from other high end phones. Probably also the SE.

    Apple Touch 5G thread.

    Yes but it comes with the atachment, so you can still use your existing wired earphones.    I wouldn't buy a iPhone for many reasons. the Head phone jack missing is about #20 on the list.

    Apple Touch 5G thread.

    I don't think the lack of jack makes any difference to most people.

    I love minidisc - is that weird?

      Does the R90 play any disc you have or is it just this one.    Perhaps the playback lazer has gone.

    I love minidisc - is that weird?

    Might be an idea to pick up a couple as spares. They seem to be getting harder to find. I loved MD/HiMD. Not sure Id go back to it now.

    On AAWP he's been testing older phones on WP10. Though its a bit early as they'll probably be optimised in the final release. Worth a read.

    How does the SQ compare clip vs sport

    How Many Are Still Using 1st Gen. Shuffles?

      In the past. (See above) Not had any in many years. So can't compare them directly.    My memory is that I used to rate my 1st gen Shuffle just a bit above my Clip+ at the time.    None of the Shuffles (of any generation) have a screen. I assume none of them had EQ either. I never messed...

    1TB woes

    I would wonder what the power draw is on the 1tb. In the early days of USB 2.5" disks,  the larger disks used more power than the smaller capacities and as a result often couldn't be powered from USB. You needed two USB ports to power some of them. Of course it might just be driver or firmware...

    How Many Are Still Using 1st Gen. Shuffles?

    You got me thinking about shuffles, and curious about the voice over feature of the current 4th Generation Shuffles. So I picked one up. Partly to see would it work for one of the kids as they find the Clip+ menu a bit fussy/tricky. I was also curious about the SQ. There seems to be good...

    Sandisk Clip Jam - Coming Soon

    Sorry my bad. Since its Head Fi I was solely thinking about SQ (Jam/Sport vs Shuffle). It didn't really occur to me you weren't. No one buys Apple as cost saving exercise, I didn't consider anyone would  compare any Apple product on bang per buck basis.   No I meant cost saving over the clip...

    Sandisk Clip Jam - Coming Soon

      Why "so much better" than the Shuffle?   Recently picked up a 4th Gen Shuffle for the kids and I thought the SQ was pretty decent. I also have a Zip which is great. But the kids were finding the Sandisk clips hard to use, and I wasn't giving them my Zip. So I thought I try with a shuffle...
