i just need advice..i want to buy a low end portable audio player..ive already researched on the web and im down to these two--Sandisk ClipZip and Sony Walkman B-series..i just want to know which has the better audio quality..that is just what i want from an audio player..i already know the specs of these two products..i just want to hear from first hand consumers' experience..thank you..
My experience is with the Clip+, but everything indicates the Clip+ and Clip Zip are equivalent in SQ.
The Clip+ is better than my Cowon D2 and my Android phone, and with my Grado SR225i headphones, just as enjoyable in SQ as listening with my much more expensive Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card on my PC (some of my other full size headphones are better on the STX). The Clip+ will also drive very low impedance earbuds/IEMs very well, something my STX will not.
My 12 year old son lost his Sony E Series Walkman this summer. Replaced it with a Clip+, and he immediately noted the improvement in audio quality. I had listened to his Sony, and I agree.
Everythingbutipod reviewed the Clip+ and found it to be comparable in SQ to the Cowon series of mp3 players:
