Was wondering if there is a place where the frequency response of the 2&8 GB clip and supplied ear buds is listed.
I have a song I recorded to tape years ago and digitized and put on clip even though it was missing first 4 lines. Also made an Audio CDR and I believe file was an mp3 of high quality 256kbps.
Then I used YouTube downloader to obtain the same song, complete, and converted it to mp3 and WAV. Put mp3 on clip.
Found CDR mp3 and wav had some high freq distortion like swishing and crackling sounds in voice and music when played on regular audio equipment but seemed OK on my clip and earbuds. This was not so with original radio tape, mp3 and CDR.
Of course I have no idea where The YouTube file came from, of what quality it was, but was trying to figure why the downloaded and converted file didnt sound good on sound equipment, even a small entry level Magnavox boombox.
Thought maybe the Clip and earbuds were intentionally smaller frequency range so files could be smaller yet still sound acceptable. Might add that though I can hear most things and above 10000-12000 on tone tests, and can detect digital distortion, I have determined that with ordinary music my clips music sounds acceptable even though wma VBR 25 att 42-88 kbps. Very few if any have I had to swith to highr quality or format to improve poor sound.
But I only use ear buds that came with clip, not play through stereo equipment.Can anyone perhaps comment on this???
