I am looking for a new Mp3 player. I would like to find one with 130gb or greater storage (Either internal or expandable) So far the Fiio x5 seems to be the best option. Anyone else have any opinions?
Fiio is garbage, poor construction and will fail on every level.
There's a new Sony Walkman with 64GB built in and accepts SD cards up to 128GB, for 192 total. It's the NWZA17 and it's under 300 bucks.
It sounds similar to every other PMP. What you listen to on it will matter more.
I have a clip+ and 128 GB microsd and am very satisfied with it. I might get one of those 200 GB ones if they drop in price from $400.
>i-it it plays flac!
Just cause it plays a lossless codec does not make it good. It's a portable player, the entire idea of portable players is to butcher your lossless files that are on your computer by converting them to tiny-file-size-mp3 and load them on your player to save space.
On a the most expensive most hyped portable player, a beautiful CD-quality flac rip is going to sound like an mp3 anyway. So you mine as well just use mp3s.
The DACs are just not that good.
With that said, get a Sansa Clip+. Unless you're a dummy and want to throw all your money away.
I've had both an X1 and a Sansa Clip, and I have to say that the clip, while cheaper, broke very quickly. Meanwhile, I've had my x1 for ~6 months and dropped it in a liquid and it still works very, very well.
Only 8gb internal but has micro sd slot. Also can play flac. Costs bit much maybe(400$)
Oops. Done a lot of workouts with it, dropped it on concrete multiple times, still works fine.
I have a large library and it works fine with rockbox and browsing by folder view.
Not exactly what you look for, but this bitch charges at the speed of diarrhea, has the sound quality of angels and is very portable being just an usb stick.
Pity its 8gb and mp3/wma only.
Still i would recommend like the motherfucking fist of the north star.
did you throw your clip around the room? I've had my clip+ for 3+ years and have had no problem with it at all. I bought a new one just incase and it's still in it's box. Don't think I will need another portable player in my life.
If you want to burn some money away then this is your answer. Looks great and you'll definitely be most hipster in the room
I dunno how it happened, it just sort of broke in my pocket. I broke the volume control on the side, and it was annoying to have to go into the settings in order to adjust the volume.
>mfw i just bought an htc one m8
>mfw i don't haven't yet bought a sd card
>mfw it sound as good as my ipod classic and plays flac
>mfw op wants a super cool (totally not autistic) audiophile XD quality mp3
>mfw of wants to carry 130gb of music on him because he cant leave home without his library
i've never understood why people want mp3 players with more than 100gb. it's more fun to me to have a 16-32gb so you have to switch around a bit instead of just dumping everything you got.
gets a bit overwhelming imo but maybe i'm one of a kind
I have 32gb and its getting too small. I want to have some space for podcasts and lots for music because you never know what kind of music you want to listen to at certain times. I did have 120gb player and did notice how much music I never listened to was on it. just to fill it up. Then again I only used mp3 format
Soon gonna buy a one m8 as well.
Most definitely will stil use my clip +
Why would you waste storage/battery for music on your phone? I guess years of shitty cell battery has accustomed me to it but I will never have a phone as my main music source.
As for the full library, fuck you, I hate most of my music sometimes.
>gonna buy a m8 as well
the m9 is almost out...
>Why would you waste storage/battery for music on your phone?
it's battery will last you a day and a half with moderate music and phone use
It's all MP3 or lossy. I've listened to a lot of music over the years and don't delete since I share it on slsk.
I'd be lying if I didn't say I've spent quite a few hours playing that while listening to music. The powerups are bullshit, there are only like two positive ones and they spawn so much.
Be careful, though, because Rockboxing mine lead to some issues with freezing and my computer not always recognizing it. But I'm bad with stuff like that, so it's probably my fault
Broke ass college student indifferent to the new additions to the m9.
>it's battery will last you a day and a half with moderate music and phone use
My clip+ lasts me well over a full day as well and my phone is pretty much all internet/games/movies so the stress on its battery are already significant.
OP again. I have a 30gb ipod classic that i may just dump files from my old ipod to. I never thought I would say this but looking at the arguments here is actually look like an ipod classic may be my best choice.
I've had it for about 2 1/2 years now and I can easily use it moderately for 2 days until it's dead. Charges at a decent rate as well, though I do use anker charger so I'm not sure how much that skews it.
Sansa Clip+ is everything you want a portable audio player to be.
And the best part is, it doesn't try to willy wonka you with bullshit internet apps or touch screen features.
It's probably one of the few portable players on the market that is JUST an audio player.
Very straight forward 'no bullshit' device.
