So far everything has gone well with internal memory.
I think I’ll try drag and drop + ditch Media Player sync function for a while.
Seem to remember there are a couple of different USB modes you can pick from…?
Mine is set to auto.
Also have to say the low volume issue is bonkers.
An EU limit is unworkable (Do you know the EU directive number?). The required volume level is dependent on:
Type of music: Classical NEEDS a higher volume level
Sensitivity of your hearing : Some hearing impaired people MUST HAVE a higher volume level, indeed the lack of available volume actually descriminates against them.
Environment: User needs to be able to drown out background noise on an aircraft for instance.
Mood : occasionally people may want a ‘blast’ of loud music…All the Clip+ offers is a wimper of music
As Headphone sensititity varies hugely how can a dB limit ever work anyway it’s techically impossible without sticking a microphone in your ear canal + feeding that back to the player gain control !!
The choice over volume must be with the consumer.
The Clip+ is the lowest volume player I’ve ever come across. I’ve an old Bush MP3 player that only uses a single AAA cell, and it can go hugely louder than the Clip+, I’ve never used the Bush at maximum.
Note my Clip+ is set to HIGH volume. At Normal setting I’d say it’s so quiet that it’s actually not fit for purpose. It would be drowned out by normal street noise only useable in a library!!
A brand new Yoo Digital 1802 MP3 player also can go louder than I would ever need, isn’t this also subject to the EU directive?
Have Sansa gone beyond the EU directive + got it wrong??
This is all yet another reason to hate those idiots in Brussels.
