good wee player , rate mine a much better palyer than my wifes apple products
dead easy to drag and drop tracks , unlike itunes
only flaw appears to be a weak clip which attaches to yourclothing mine broke within months and so have others mentioned in reviews

Got one when they were giving a 8gb card with it too. Cracking little player, fully recommended.

I have one of the original clip players. It's a good little player but the max volume is too quiet on it. What the max volume level on the clip+ like?

Very high if you set it on WORLD instead of UK setting.

£118 RRP? Thats absurd. The American RRP converts to £42 but they sell for a lot less than that.

How can we get ripped off so much?

Obviously this is a good price. I have the original Clip & like it.

Thanks for the reply. Any idea whether you can do that with the original Clip? How do you do it with the Clip+

Update: just worked it out - you 'Reset All' and set it to 'Rest of the World'. Thanks.

Wow this is holding it's price well! I got this player for under £40 nearly 2 years ago - it's well worth the money

I debated getting one of these but got the Sandisk Sansa Fuze 8GB instead. Got a new one buy it now off eBay for £42

Same good sound quality, has the ability for Rockbox to be installed just like this one, but is has a colour screen - a a bigger size at that.

No fastening clip though, so if you're a jogger then this is still better in that regard. Those who want a small a decent MP3 player for normal usage, go for the Fuze.

Superb little player - great SQ and the possibility to expand leaves extra space and spend up to you.

Might not be applicable to your Clip. The earlier models of the Clip (4GB and 2GB) didn't have the latest EU sound level cuts included in the firmware that is present for the Clip+ and the 8GB Clip.

Am feeling a bit gutted - my £35 4GB one just turned up today from Amazon. :(

It's a dinky little thing - no bigger than a matchbox, and the ability to add a microSDHC card is fantastic. With the location set to "World" it'll drive a pair of 80 Ohm DT770 Pros without issue :)

normal price

It's a very good player for not a lot of cash. Like most cheap [& not so cheap] players the bundled earphones are pretty naff. Have 3 in the house and have to report that one went wrong (screen was garbled) after 3-4 months but Amazon sorted it with their usual flair and efficiency.
#15
This is the max price i would pay for one anyway, but i must say if you only want a music player and not video, you cant go wrong. Get yourself a cheap 16gb or 32gb card (or more if you dont mind swapping cards and waiting for the library to refresh).

Just watch as i'm sure it has a limit on the amount of files it can read and list (nothing to do with capacity) so dont bother shrinking files to try and get thousands of tracks on.
#16
Me and my wife have one each of these for the gym. Highly recommended. Great sound for a small player but do swap the headphones for a decent pair.
#17
Pair this player (preferably with the free Rockbox open-source software on it) with a good pair of in-ear monitors and a 16GB (or 32GB if you're feeling flush), and you have a TINY 24GB (or 40GB!) solid state memory music player, with top class sound quality, endless codec compatibility via Rockbox, for around £55. Shove that up your ipod!

I have one with 16GB class 4 micro SD, Rockbox, and a pair of Phonak Audeo PFE111s, and it is a FLAC-worthy player. Seriously. I've had to go and re-rip all my CDs in FLAC using Media Monkey, as I can hear the compression artefacts of MP3 and WMA using this sound setup.

BUY IT!! AND PUT ROCKBOX ON IT!! Althought to be honest this price isn't the lowest I've seen, got mine from Currys a year ago for about £30-£35. Oh, and the music on the micro SD card integrates fully with the music on the internal memory, so no having to move around directories to access the music on the memory card.

go into settings and alter the region to rest of the world or worldwide i think it is and hey presto the volume goes much louder if you use uk settings volume is restricted !!!!!!![
#19
These are great little players.
Hot.

In regards to comments about volume output, just set region to USA. No EU volume Cap. Hurah.

I'm a great fan of the Sansa mp3 players - would recommend both this one and the Fuze (not the Fuze Plus though). The only thing that lets it down is the clip. Like many others, mine broke after very limited use, and it is not replaceable. Unlike others, I think the earbuds are really ok. Don't know why they only do the 8gb in black though!
#21
Is this better than sony http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-NWZA845B-Walkman-Player-Screen/dp/B00342UXB2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307380800&sr=8-1

Lets forget the price for a second, which will sound better? Ive read some reviews and dont know what to say but I think Sansa is of same quality. Also whats the best way to connect it to a car system.

Thanks

I've just updated the software on my Sandisk Fuse and the volume has gone down, and the option to change the volume setting to high in the preferences has been removed.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-ear_monitor

No, I don't. earphones are cheap and comparatively low-quality devices. In-ear monitors use a different tech, are significantly more expensive and much higher sound quality. You will never hear the difference between high bitrate mp3 and flac using earphones, you can hear the difference using a decent pair of monitors.

Indeed. And your Phonak Audeo PFE111s are earphones.

I've got one of these Creative Zen Style 16GB which cost me £59.99.

An 8GB player for £40 is not bad money at all

It's just a shame they call it the 'clip' and then it breaks (_;)

Yes, ok ok, they are technically earphones, but they are in-ear monitor earphones. IEMs. They aren't your standard Sennheiser £15 in-canal earphones, they are the next step up. In audiophile world the term is usually used to differentiate between the crap cheap earphones (a term which includes the really poor buds), and the quality IEM ones, even though they are technically all "earphones". I wanted to distinguish between cheap earphones and IEM earphones as I was referring to the Clip+ as being flac-worthy quality when used with IEM earphones whereas it isn't with just standard earphones, hence why I used the IEM term. Hence why IEMs have their own wikipedia entry. Mr Pedantic.

Hi all. I Rockboxed my Iriver H320 so I'm no stanger to doing it but the Sansa has gaples play and playing from folders (and folders within folders I think) out of the box so why Rockbox it?
#33
I got one of these from Currys last Xmas, it was only £35 then.

It was fine, but would not work on my Nissan Note USB plug in, which was the main reason I got it.

Swapped it for a Hitachi version - which works fine.

There's a website that has several versions of the released firmwares for the Clip & Clip+ (and possibly Fuse) that you can download and install (i found it with google).

Put on the version that works best (as opposed to the latest).

Absolutely. The facility to put songs in the folders of your own choosing rather than fart about with playlists and genres elevates this player far above anything else on the portable mp3 player market.

Sound quality is excellent as well, so long as of course you make sure it's set to"rest of world" volume levels rather than EU.
#36
I've checked and, just to confirm, if you have a folder called say "100 best hits" and it has subfolders called CD1, CD2, CD3 etc then the "Play All" option will play the tracks in the subfolders fine.
