I am curious (yellow) ...
What equalizer setting do you use on your Clip?
Right now I find myself switching back and forth between the "Rock" and my own Custom setting, which is a flattened "U" shape if you can imagine that. 1st and 5th bars are 8 clicks up (66%), 2nd and 4th bars are at 33%, middle bar at 0. Mostly I use my Custom setting. I listen to pretty much everything from classical music to punk rock.
No country music, though. And no rap after Run DMC.

I usually keep mine set on Rock. I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like when I use the Custom EQ, the volume/max volume somehow gets lowered. Anyone else notice that?
Does anyone know what each individual bar in the Custom EQ adjusts??

Even with the volume at max while using the Custom EQ, the overall volume seems lower. Someone else mentioned this in another thread, but I can't find it now
My settings look like the curve of a bottom lip of a crooked smile.....the 1st bar's a little lower How do you tell the exact percentages of the settings....you just counted the clicks, or there's a reading??
(I found the thread that talks about it.......here......sorry, didn't want to go off topic )

I've been waiting for a decent thread about this. I'm currently using Custom, Rock sounds like crap to me. 1st bar at +6, 2nd bar at +3, 3rd bar at +2, 4th bar at +4, 5th bar at +7. Sounds good to me, I initially had them all one more click up but it made some songs to distorted. This seems to be just about right. Mainly listening to Rock and some rap.
I haven't tried the U shaped, 8,4,0,4,8 yet. Plan on giving it a whirl. Another thread mentioned using it at 9,-3,3,3,6 and the bass was way to muddy and distorted at times. If anyone else has suggestions I'd love to hear them.

I find the Normal EQ setting pretty hard to beat... it's got a good balance of lows/mids/highs. The Custom setting most def cuts the volume which is quite annoying and keeps me from using it except when very necessary. My $20 Koss earplugs are very decent for the price... tho i believe the Clip's great audio is worthy of a much more sensitive (read: expensive) set. It's also worthy of a much better implemented custom EQ (might i request this to the Sansa code developers?).
I'm new here, btw... greetings to everyone. I've been using a 2Gb Clip for many weeks and love it... so much so i've a 4Gb due to arrive any day now. I'm extremely picky about audio quality and the Clip is amazing.

The same as neutron_bob, Jazz mode is the only well-balanced mode, other modes are crap (including normal mode!). I only listen to hip-hop and it's perfect for it. But most of the time i use my own custom setting, which is very close to the Jazz mode with a little more highs and a little less bass. If you want to try it set it up like that: +2/12 ; +2/12 ; -2/12 ; +6/12 ; +8/12

I use forum member BUC's custom EQ, which you can search for around here, because, sadly, I don't remember exactly what it is. But, IMHO, it's a great EQ that gave me a definite gain in volume.
All the best,
