5 A++++++ buy !!!!NaiveRaj | 26/09/2007 | See all NaiveRaj's reviews (1)Excellent sound quality. The sound reproduction of my 256kbps mp3 files is outstanding. The sound is just as good as the original CDs. The player has a customizable 5 band equalizer which allows you to adjust the tonal quality of the music to your preferences. It also has a music enhancer mode (DSEE)to bring out the best from compressed music files. I left that function at "off" because Im already happy with the sound quality. According to the manual, the player is also compatible with variable bit rate files. The player also has a "Dynamic Normalizer", which automatically adjusts the volume level of each song so that they all play at about the same loudness even when the songs were ripped from different CDs with varying recording volumes. With the Dynamic Normalizer, you wont have to keep adjusting the volume of the player everytime a new song from a different album/artist is playing.Terrific headphones. Unlike other MP3 players, this player comes with premium headphones. The bass, mids, and highs are all very well balanced resulting in crisp, realistic music. The sound is neither muddy nor tinny---just perfect with all the musics details very clear and vibrant.Superb build quality and design. The body feels expensive and durable. The slim design is ver elegant, and small/light enough to fit in shirt pocket.Very intuitive user interface. The user interface is so very well designed, that I was able to use the mp3 player without even touching the manual.Very easy to load music. I just used Windows Explorer to drag n drop my mp3s from the computer to the player--thats it!
