I recently started a thread asking if the 4 GB Clip had more hiss than the 2 GB version i had before. I couldn’t get any positive response so i tried my uncle’s 2 GB Clip and i must admit i was wrong, the 2 GB Clip has also hiss on several tracks. Nothing dramatical of course, as i do have the same kind of hiss when playing those tracks on my computer or my Vaio Pocket.
However when i compared the 4 GB and the 2 GB versions a few details desappointed me.
First the 2 GB Clip’s oled screen is MUCH better than the 4 GB’s, it’s simply much lighter, and the same goes for the blue ring.
Take a look at this picture below
The second and most important difference was the ouput volume, it’s about 20% more powerful on the 2 GB version. It’s no real big deal as the 4 GB is already very powerful (i recently bought a Sony DAP which sucked so much on this point that i had to sell it 1 week later) and honestly, after comparing both at the same ouput volume i couldn’t convince myself that it affected the 4 GB’s sound quality in any way.
On the positive side, the 4 GB Clip looks much better with its mirror screen and its better looking side buttons, so i’m not regretting at all the upgrade :stuck_out_tongue:
