DISCLAMIER: If Mentioning Rockbox is against the rules in this Forum, Please Edit this post. Thank you.
I got a Fuze in Christmas present and i’m pretty Happy with it so far. The MP3 player is great, but it can be Diffecult to get nice ammount of bass
We got our Custom EQ, which is great, but since the EQ band Frequencys are pre-set you can’t set the way you want it. And the bass is lacking in my opinion when it comes to setting the EQ. Since the lowest band in the EQ is on 100 Hz and not 60, it can be diffecult to set up a good bass sound.
So my suggestions are:
Simple Bass value - Adds or Subtracts the lower (Bass) frequencys in the sound.
Simple Treble value - Adds or Subtracts the higher (treble) frequencys in the sound.
Parametric Equalizer - Give the option to control the Equalizer alot more than you currently can. There could be a Option to enable or disable this feature in the systems settings, Defaulted to “Off”, so new Owners won’t accidentally touch them without knowing what it’s for.
This is the Rockbox Parametric EQ, which was just brought here as an example.
I’m pretty sure that the Player will handle those since on my Old E250 (v1) with Rockbox firmware it could handle without any Decrease in performance.
While Rockbox is one of the reasong i buy the Sandisk Players i’m kinda hooked to it and since i like the Sansa players by design and Quality too i bought a Fuze, but the Fuze v2 doesent support Rockbox yet so i have to stick with the original firmware. And thats why i’m suggesting these features which would make the sound alot better in my Opinion.
If some of the players doesent Support any of the Above mentioned they can be Disabled for those Players. But i’m mainly talking about the Fuze here since thats the player i own.
As for Battery Life, if The EQ is disabled and the Bass/treble is set to 0, there should be no Decrease in battery life or any altering in the Current sound.
UPDATE: Edited the whole post for Clarifaction and making it more reasonable.
