Can't see the open box one - must have gone otherwise would have had that especially with 8.5% Quico and a £10 Quidco bonus.

Marginal gains people. Not worth getting excited about.
Marginal gains over what? LW radio, MP3 player, iPhone or previous generation Cowon devices.
Over a setup costing a fraction of the price of this player.
Like most products, small gains have exponential cost implications the further up you go.
I'll never buy one, as Mike Oldfiled stated on his Amarok cover, I'm a cloth eared nincompoop.

Good find ordered one then read the reviews lol. But I will make my own mind up. Within 1 hour it's been dispatched with a tracking number so on ball . Amazon reviews not good but YouTube unboxing look promising.
Why not buy the SBH52 instead of the 54? Both are the same though 54 appears to be newer gen, both don't have storage so as redkop says, are just BT receivers.
I think SBH54 is just a receiver,with no built in memory so cannot be used as a stand alone MP3 player.

Bought these a week ago, was meant to be delivered last Friday, but I wasn't in. Supposedly left a card, but I couldn't find it anywhere and so I emailed the company to find out about where my item was. They told me that FedEx would deliver it on Tuesday, and they didn't, then on Wednesday too, but obviously that didn't work either. My tracking information is now blank too.
Requested for a refund yesterday, and was only told that I would be issued it once they receive their item back from FedEx; I highly doubt they will if they can't even deliver it to me. Ridiculous, yet hilarious at the same time.
I guess I'll escalate my PP dispute on Monday if I don't get my refund.
I'm probably the only one who has had this issue, but the hassle this has caused has made me want to get something else instead. Looking at the other end of the spectrum now, with a pair of Soundsticks in my basket. X)
Actually I had a real crappy time getting mine from FedEx, they posted a card, I logged on and told them where to leave it, they posted another card, I phoned up and told them the delivery agent did not follow instructions, they said he would do it the next day, they didnt. I phoned again and finally they followed instructions.
The product packaging had clearly taken a battering by this time and was split and broken.
I contacted the company who are now getting FedEx to collect and they plan to send out a replacement.
I have got it sent to my workplace because FedEx seem unable to follow simple instructions.
I was thinking it was just me, seems that FedEx is universally crap, or at least it is in the UK.
Update:
Advanced MP3 players were really good about this and resent my delivery very well packed this time without any quarms.

How are these 30w when USB is 5w max

That's just their rating, it doesn't mean they 'output' 30W, just that they can handle 30W if the rating was 2.5W/ea they would sound ****. They could be 1000W speakers it don't make no dif.
Yep, i, agree they sound reasonable, quite 'coherent' compared to many pc speakers. Just a shame they cut costs by putting such a weedy amp in them (pretty sure the drivers can handle more)

For checking facebook and a few other sites in the morning, these do fine though :)
For the price show me another set of speakers which are better. I got mine the other day and I'm fairly impressed with the sound -- I mean, it's a bit muddy in the low-mid range, and maybe a bit lacking in sparkle up in the high end, both which can be mitigated with a bit of EQ -- still, the form factor and convenience combined with the really very acceptable audio quality, make these a total bargain.

I got a pair of Palo Alto Musik speakers which appear to be of the same vein as these, just a little bit bigger. These absolutely trounce those in my mind -- the Musik are much more boxy sounding. They basically sound like their size. They sound acceptable for some light use basically. The QSBs by comparison, are much more open sounding, and ultimately they make music listening possible without cringing. I usually listen to Hyperballad by Bjork to get an idea of whether speakers are able to competently reproduce low-end. The QSBs happily produce the opening 3-notes of the bassline at their correct levels in the mix, with no variation in volume between them (some speakers/headphones really resonate for one of the three, and you hear a real difference in levels -- sometimes the lowest note is basically dead/missing).

If you're on the fence, consider that a pair of Logitech speakers at the same price will be just pure ****. Very few people will disagree with this statement hopefully. They'll sound **** terrible. They'll also be bigger with some uglier design, they'll have cables about 6 miles long and a big wall wart and cable that you'll have to make room for. The phono cable that comes with these is long enough to span a 24" monitor, and you can always buy a longer USB cable if necessary (USB mini).

Not perfect as I mentioned, but if you've got a small desk and mainly use headphones, these would be perfect for the odd time when your ears are getting warm.

Would'nt've have dreamed of buying them for 90 quid or above, but at this price I really doubt they can be beaten. I'm open to someone who can refute this, btw. Not just making a hyperbolic statement.


Edited By: johnstalvern on Dec 31, 2015 17:58
Yup received a pair. Volume level is 'just' okay but rather low. If I had two pairs, I'd do the mod that was posted in the amazon review, hooking up a t-amp to a pair of the left speakers (the ones without the usb output at the back)

What Hifi have always been a joke (regarded as the worst of the mags) but they take things to a new low with their review of these speakers "...a big sound" . The driver tech might be innovative but they don't go loud enough.

Still I'm okay with it because I change over to a pair of Logitech z10's when I want more volume :p

Still the same price, maybe junk?
I'd say the company were way off with the RRP when these were released and they didn't sell well (I mean, let's be honest here... nobody is paying £100 for small USB speakers!). Judging by the fact Advanced MP3 Players seem to be the only retailer selling them, I'd say they bought up all the remaining stock at a cut price and have a lot to shift...

Sorry for my ignorance, but how does the quidco work. I found the retailer through quidco but it says 4.5%?
I've not used quidco before.
Make a quidco account and then you search Advanced Mp3 Players and click through to the website via them.
Then after you make the purchase you should hopefully find it'll track in your Quidco. Then a few months later you'll get the cashback paid which you withdraw to your bank account or PayPal :)

there's no way to hear the extra difference that 192KHz/24bit audio makes.
192kHz/24bit has no difference to be heard wherever you are.

Well you can definitely say it makes a difference otherwise the numbers wouldn't change :P Whether you can hear a difference is another matter and one I'm not going to offer an opinion on

Well that is money off so heat, at the same time I'm not sure I see the point in the product. Don't get me wrong, I love my Fiio E17 because it sounds so much better than the built in headphones outputs of my computers or TV, but I don't feel that high res audio is worth it in portable form because the main place you'd need portability is while walking the streets and there's no way to hear the extra difference that 192KHz/24bit audio makes when there's a car passing a metre away from you.
snake oil. even the reviews talk more about how it looks and feels, rather than how it sounds

What headphones are you using, and what do you want an amp for? Is it for a bump on volume, improvement to sound etc?
You can get some nice little cmoy ones on ebay for about half this amount.

As these are USB powered the maximum power they can output will be 5V x 500mA = 2.5Watts. I don't see where the 30Watts can come from?
​they'll most likely have a built in transformer, similar to AC powered speakers. Could account for the chunkiness. 30W isn't great anyway.
It uses 2.5 watts but produces 30 watts? Magic.
​USB powered speakers can provide in excess of 30W. suggest you research a little before describing it as magic. it's physics.
USB 2.0 max output is 2.5 watts. Link me to some explanation as to how 2.5 watts can turn into 30 watts with just a single USB output.

These speakers are great! Paid £9.99 for them, would say they're worth £25 quality wise.
They use just one USB, and if your phone supports OTG you can plug it in and they'll work great (tested on Moto G).

Mine are now in the bathroom and as AirPlay speakers hooked up to a battery pack and RPi.
Would recommend
they may be excellent sounding speakers but if USB2 is max 0.5A and 5V how does it manage 30W without mains power ?

These are amazing speakers, no idea what people who are putting them down were listening to.
I paid £17 and thought id got a bargain, totally amazing sound
I have the distinct impression they're comparing them to speakers costing 2, 3 and 4 times this cost (my previous speakers cost as much and they're not in same class)

Just delivered this morning, and very pleased with them. Nice full sound, volume isn't street-blasting but you don't need it to be. Quality of sound is as I said, better than my 2 previous pairs

Our really depends on the quality of the headphones your using and your hearing I suppose. I'm only using my note 4 and a pair of £20 sound magic earphones and I can hear the difference.

why not just do it anyway? your friends and random strangers you feel the need to tell will think you are some sort of god
Because I'm happy with MP3 :)
Can use this as an external DAC for PC/Mac/Console and feed it to an amp, gives the sound a decent boost.
a recent ios update reduced the power output to external devices on my iphone and killed my HRT microstreamer....absolutely fuming.
I wish they wouldn't 'idiofy' their users, reducing the output as if we're idiots and might damage something....

Our really depends on the quality of the headphones your using and your hearing I suppose. I'm only using my note 4 and a pair of £20 sound magic earphones and I can hear the difference.

Depends on the source. If you use low quality MP3 and good quality FLAC of course you can hear the difference.

Happy?
Will be when I've moved into my new house and get them wall-mounted! The box was a bit battered on arrival, and they could've packaged them with more care, but fortunately there was only a minor dent in the actual SONOS box.

Bought a pair, received broken. the connection at the back are loose.
Try to return, no luck, seller wants me to pay delivery charge to send the item back, and only offer exchange. I refused. seller even deleted my account with them.
I still have the broken pair sitting on the top of my bookshelf for two year now.
I will never buy from the seller again. No matter how cheaper their price my seems to be.
Not worth the hassle.
Understandable when you get hassle - I'm the same - (currently feeling same towartds 7dayshop) - puzzled though. I had a MP3/AVI player (a Cowon) for 5 months and it started refusing to play, last year it was. Got my money back with no problem, and cost of sending it too. Maybe they've changed that attitude.
Connections are a well documented woe it would seem. Might be okay if permanently placed but I'd think twice before buying for a laptop though.

They sound average when compared to most of the active speakers. The biggest selling point of these is they achieve such performance without requiring extra power supply more than the USB.

Are the soundmagic e10 for £27 worth it over these? Never had soundmagic earphones
I have had the e10 for over a year and they are better than the virtually any earphones I have owned before and were the best budget buy in one of the HiFi mags at the time I bought. I would definitely recommend the e10
Cheers. I went for the betron 1000, cannot wait! Going on holiday next week so definitely need them to replace my old pair if sonys which broke!
I got through several pairs of Soundmagic - they are flimsy.

Try these:

Betron YSM1000

Much better build quality & 2 year warranty. £19.99

Been using the e10's for over a year, brilliant little headphones - highly recommended. Finally replaced them with a set of xiaomi pistons (v2.1) from ibuygou.com for just over £12 delivered which are equally badass and have inline controls and a mic.

No my sound magic E10 fell apart after a few months. Xiaomi Piston 2's or 3's are much better for the money and in the case of the Piston 2's nigh on bombproof.

Do they not have the starter kit any more?
I received delivery of my SONOS Play:1 Starter Kit today from AdvancedMP3Players through FedEx; it was in a ShopTo.net box! Many thanks to the OP.
240 odd quid if the cashback tracks, great deal on the play:1s! Ordered the starter kit but the website says they are out of stock till 2025. Maybe I'll get a surprise in 10 years time.
The deal is valid for this weekend only. I've used them before with no problems. delivery is free on certain items, and from £4.99 on others. Up to 4.5% cashback with Quidco

Just a fair warning I bought one of these last year straight from Fiio. Used them semi regularly alongside a 5th gen video IPod and after 4 or 5 months the battery would not hold more than an hour's charge, tried to exchange it under warranty but was turned away pretty quickly from Fiio stating that the battery lasted as long as it should have. I felt that I used it between 6 or 7 hours per week and charged it as soon as was indicated to do so but the battery in my unit simply was not meant to last.

I use one when I listen to my iPhone with my AKG550 headphones, without the amp they sound quiet and dull. Good product but the retaining clip is pants.
From what I hear, the amp is basically an EQ. Is the portable amp industry a scam? I remember reading about their rather scarce circuitry.

Owner of a few amps here, including the E06 a few years ago before selling it for something beefier. Some of them can be cons, just colouring the sound signature (usually badly) while providing a bit of extra power, but when buying from "proper" audio brands like FiiO it most definitely isn't the case. I used the E06 with a few pairs of midrange IEMs and a pair of Sennheiser HD25-1 II, which are an industry standard for DJs and a lot of other audio applications. The E06 is, as far as cheap amps go, pretty transparent- sound signature remains relatively the same while, well, amplifying the signal- they could be played louder than my iPod would, detail retrieval improved, soundstage was a little wider, bass got a little more impact.

It's not going to radically overhaul the sound of your headphones, but if you've invested a decent amount of money into your cans then an amp can yield audible benefits.

I've just ordered this one so can't speak for this one personally...but I did own the FiiO E11 (until I left my car open and it got nicked!) and I can definitely say that wasn't a con. It gave the volume a huge boost. More importantly though, at 'normal' listening volume, it allowed me to hear detail in some songs that I wasn't picking out before.

Plenty of reputable and independent sites review them very highly, it's definitely not a scam. Drop by a Richer Sounds or something one day and give one a try.

with portable amp you can squeeze more "juice" from headphones. some headphones (inc portables) have high impedance and need more power!

Not sure how but i got the openbox speakers for 10.99 delivered using the paypal express checkout ;-)
ryanmatthew524
just ordered open boxed version the shipping is about 4 quid came to 17 pound something in total - seems a bargain and just what i need to use in the kitchen while cooking, thanks OP

Works out practically the same price to buy the new version - you get free shipping plus code Y!ELD10%OF gives 10% off and possible 4.25% quidco. £17.99 without quidco, £17.22 if it pays out.

Anyway, ordered and hot from me.

I bought some of these previously, at not such a good price - they are awesome for the size!
The sound from these little speakers IS amazing and I support all the reviews in that regard

BUT, I would just say that as USB speakers they have a limitation in that they only work with a computer which restricts their versatility.
Don't know about that original price! Standard price is £22.50 with free delivery from Amazon.
