by the way....
it's £39 on Pixmania...but you'll have to pay for delivery
Sandisk Clip for £39 @Pixmania
#2
Regularly comes down to £35 at amazon
#3
I am a iPod user but this product truly does sound way better than any iPod out there! My sis has got a clip and I take it now and then for the SQ!
#4
Definitely the best mp3 player in its range - you can go for the other options such as 2GB and then put a microSD card in, can save a few quid.
#5
got one of these with an 8gb card as well. Awesome bit of kit!

heat added.
#6
Looking to buy this when it comes down to £30-35.
You might wanna change the title to "Clip+", Clip is the version that isnt expandable
#7
Got the thirty odd quid 8gb Clip+ version last month, and it ROCKS.
#8
So - although it appears a good product is this not necessarily the 'best price?'
#9
Its a good price for if you need it now.. but not a scorching deal by any means.. I got my sandisk fuze (video playback etc) 8gb plus 4gb mem card for £35 at curry's when they had a sale and also bought the gf the 8gb clip (old version now) for £35 (pretty much std price few months ago).

I will say however these are good mp3 players, quite robust too. I dropped mine a few times and gf uses her daily. - Simple drag and drop functions i.e. no need special software to install, sound is good, iirc has EQ on clip on it so that helps, and battery life is good. similar size as the shuffle of ipod.

Tends to drop below £40 occassionally. Every now and again it makes it down as low as £35. Never seen it under £35 on Amazon but I've only been looking since march. I got it for £42 and I am more than happy with that price, considering it was £55 the day before and I didn't know it went lower than £42

Drop it into your basket, click save for later and keep checking your basket to see if the price has gone up or down.

Hi
Looked on Pixmania and linked to a set of Philips speakers.

Do you think this could be something to be used in my kitchen? If so, would i need speakers or not?
#12
Two Sansa clips in our house.

Great bits of kit, waaaaay better than the equivalent ipod offering.

Work seamlessly with Media Monkey for playlists.

The price on this thread is however nothing special, but buy one anyway.

Yes you would need speakers for that application. Any kind of mp3/ipod dock should suffice, unless you have a radio with an aux in port

Or even a cheap set of 2 way pc speakers would do the job

Just to add, I agree with all the above - and excellent podcast/audio book features mean if you accidentally skip to the next file, when you skip back it will go to where you left off. Excellent audio quality, and the best bit, is the microSD expansion, it INTEGRATES the microsd files with the internal memory, unlike the ZEN varieties that boast SD expandability, but are actually almost useless as you have to have 2 different music databases. I'm always singing the praises of sansa players, but trust me, I've been through a lot of mp3 players, and ama bit of a geek when it comes to research. I prefer the Fuze myself, as the battery last a little longer, but these clips are unbeatable for the price. Nothing else that small is that good. Period. IMHO
#15
for the size, price and capabilities...it kicks "gluteus maximus" if you know what I'm saying.
For a dude who only gets a chance to listen to his stuff while on the move like myself...I need something that lasts for a while, brilliant output quality, easy to attach, rugged and, since I'm not a banker, AFFORDABLE :oops:

I do own a Sony NWZ-S618F and it's been serving right and bright. but I want to upgrade to something with better output but doesn't cause a big hole in my already-suffering wallet....:?

Then keep saving for 3~4 yrs to get a pair of Ultimate Ears 5-pro like the ones John Petrucci uses and I'll be fine then ::keep dreaming:: :whistling:

From what I've read on head-fi the Sony is as good as the clip with regard to sound quality.

Let us know how it fares if you have a chance to compare!

Can the batteries on these be replaced once it runs out completely?

For all intents and purposes the answer is 'no'. Search the sansa clip forums though and you'll find the odd uber geek that has managed to replace the battery.

You'll probably find that you've either lost or trodden on it long before the battery gives out. Some advice reprinted from a forum is given below.
"Lithium-ion (or Lithium-polymer) batteries such as used in the Clip+ should be charged every time time you use the device. Li-Ion/Li-Po will not be harmed by such frequent top-off charge cycles, and in fact, these batteries last longer when the charge is kept above about 70%. (On the other hand, they are harmed by deep-cycling).

The typical 300-500 charge cycles figure assumes full discharge / full charge; a full discharge/charge cycle is equivalent to multiple partial discharge/charge cycles. So you don't have to worry about using up your 300 cycles too quickly by frequent top-off charging (partial charging)."


Hope that helps. :thumbsup:

It's ridiculously shiny and looks like it could scratch easily. I bought a silicon case for it on eBay but it took a month to arrive. Considering how popular they are I'm suprised there's not more options for cases.
#20
Mmm, you've got to wonder about folk who puchase little rubber suits for their gadgets. Maybe its the next best thing to rubber underwear? Bit kinky if you ask me but each to his or her own, as they say. I've had mine for eight months now and use it every day. Must have dropped it half a dozen times and it still looks good (Clip+ that is, not the rubber underwear).
#21
Battery isn't officially user-replaceable, but it's possible (and you don't need to be any kind of geek - just know how to do some basic soldering and be as careful as possible taking the case apart).

For kitchen use, the best thing would be to use a 3.5mm stereo jack to a pair of phono/rca cables from this player into your hifi. If you don't already have a hifi then a mp3 player dock/pair of speakers will be needed.
#22
I haven't tried to replace the battery on my Sony...but I don't need it really...
When I first got it 2 yrs ago it used to do around 30 odd hours.... and now it can probably do around 15hrs using a pair of Sony MDR-EX75... which are way better than supplied pair!!

I can't fault mine really...way better than an IPooped anyway :whistling:
#23
Had the 2GB Clip and now a 8+8 Clip+. Also a Zen VM and a Touch. The Clip+ is the one I use every day. Brilliant player.

I was about to say you might be be better off buying the Fuze for £39 and a 8GB card for £11 Only £7.70 difference.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-SDSDQ-008G-E11M-microSDHC-8GB-Card/dp/B001D0ROGO

but now that the Clip's gone down to £39......:)

How much better is the Fuze, out of interest?
#26
Updated the price to £39
Cheers guys :)
#27
What class is the bundled 8GB card? (ie 2,4,6)

Cheers

Hi David,

To be honest, for me - and I mostly use it for listening to podcasts (coasttocoastam.com downloads) when walking the dog and before i sleep, but thats a few hours a day. And then music when i'm in the mood, or through the hi-fi via aux in. The sound is pretty much identical, some say the clip+ i slightly warmer than the fuze, but its personal preference, Also, I a/b'd my fuze with a cowon s9 and there really wasnt anything in it. Both clip+ and fuze are excellent and for me, do the same thing. I dont use it for video, so if I had to only have one, I would probably have just the clip, but then again, the battery is longer by a few hours on the fuze.. :)

I don't use playlists, on the fly or any of that stuff, i just choose music by artist and then album, or stick it on random. Works perfectly. Great support for podcasts/audiobooks on both, you can have lots of audiobooks and podcasts going, and they both remember where you left off when you switch back. If you dont need the size of the clip, and the clip function, then I would get a fuze, they sometimes come up for around 40 for 8gb. I have an 8gb microSD that I swap between the fuze and Clip. I don't really need both, but i like the fuze so much I bought the clip+

I've use them with senheiser px100's and koss portapro's (both open back as I like to be aware of my surroundings, and don't like the bounceback of closed back) and honestly the soundstage and seperation is amazing.

Hope this helps, either would be a great choice.

Oh, one more thing, a lot of people in reviews moan about the volume being too low. You have to set it to USA when you first switch it on, or it will default to the EU volume restrictions. Then there is a setting in settings to slect low or high volume. There is also replay gain if all your mp3's are recorded at different volumes, this will flatten them out so no nasty shocks. Also, they support gapless and lossless.
#30
Thanks, that was very helpful :thumbsup:
#31
I've had the Clip+ for awhile now and can definitely recommend it.
It's an amazing player :)
#32
And if your brave there is always the rockbox port :)

better battery life? Parametric EQ? And all sorts of other goodies.....
#33
ORdered one after my Zen was stolen, thanks. :D
#34
I guess the bundled 8GB Sandisk card is class 2?
#35
I think you might have made a mistake, there is no bundled card with this deal, its a clip+ (the newer clip) with 8gb internal memory, it has a microSD slot, so you could go buy a 8gb class 6 card or a 16gb or a whopping 32 and have a 40gb player the size of a matchbox.
#36
I was indeed mistaken.:p
