I'm late to the party, but whatever... It removes the EU-sanctioned volume limitations... You can boost the volume louder on Rockbox... Plus increased battery life, speed of the UI... And so much more features like crossfade options,gapless playback... . and themes... .
I use a Rockboxed Sansa Clip+...
Reviving zombie thread (sorry) but they must have volume limited the US version too. Mine had been sitting in a drawer for years because it didn't have enough volume to drive the earphones I tried to use with it. Now I finally Rockboxed it, it can even get loud with the hard to drive Pure IEM500. I also noticed they are up to $129 on Amazon since discontinued. I'm sure there are better options at that price, but when they were close-out at $20, it was a great deal.
