It's like a party in my ears...
Now it's time to test the little pink candy bar to see if it sounds as sweet as it looks! - Firstly, I hook up the supplied headphones to get a base level feel for the units output. The included white headphones performed amicably and I could hear the highs and mids clearly with some bass present, but not a huge amount.
Hooking up my In-ear headphones, I found a much clearer and cleaner sound from the player with less distortion on the bass and high notes. It's clear that the player has the ability to output good quality bit-rated music, as long as you have some headphones to match. I use these in-ear headphones everywhere these days as I find they give a fantastically clear sound quality while removing a lot of background noises by acting like a set of earplugs.
The final test was to jack in my DJ/Reference set of cans to see if the player has the ability to drive a larger set of phones and still maintain the same clear levels. Well, there is no doubt this player has a very clever and powerful amplifier in it, as the sound quality really was fantastic, allowing me to hear to the very limits of the MP3 encoding. In a way it spoils you, like watching TV in high-definition and realising that your favourite actor has suddenly aged now that you can see the wrinkles. With that said, MP3 encoding is starting to show its age, I think.
Now that the quality tests are over and done with, we can start to mess with the settings to find out really what DNSe 2.0 can do for us.
The menu system of the player is fairly intuitive and you will rarely find yourself flummoxed or lost in menus, so it's easy to switch into DSNe 2.0 environments while playing a track. There is a bunch of standard pre-sets offering you EQ boosts and then there are spacial simulators to give the effect of a concert hall or a stadium gig.
