ZEN!

My 4GB Zen just went off and won't come back on :(

Even if you plug it up it won't do anything. WTF

The regular zen, S/N MAPF 2162 844M 1257 5Y
DVP - FL0001

I found instructions on how to turn it on in safe mode/bios type interface. Nothing. Plugging it in, nothing. I just backed up all of my shit to a computer like a week ago so erasing it is fine.

I had it hooked up to my amp jammin out, then it just went off. Couldn't get it to come back on.

It lost its inner peace. Have you tried feng sui?

Apple sucks. I think I figured it out..

My hot wire coming from my amp to my sub might have grazed a bare spot on the ground wire going back into the sub.

Dude - iPods are the way to go. Mine has been through everything. I've lost it, and it comes back. I've spilt everything from beer to iced tea on it, and it satill works. Mine was a refurb, too. The only thing wrong with it is a single line of pixels that are out, but you can't really tell, unless you're looking for it.

Mine has a line that I'd say is about 12 pixels long that has gone out of it, and I notice it all the time, but it doesn't bother me.

The product is popular for a reason. It works.

If I just want to blast some fucking metal I don't need anything higher than 320kb. I'm not exactly trying to get a doctorate in Musical Theory. Anyway, isn't the Zune the same sound quality as an iPod?

there is more to sound quality than the bitrate/format of the file.
cowon uses high-grade audio-chips, apple's are shit.
not sure about the zune, but i think it was slightly better than apple.

ehrm, cd quality is much higher than 128 kbps mp3.
if you do only use 128 kbps mp3, you should burn.

I agree with AUG (oddly enough) that if there is some nuance that I am not getting with the quality of my iPod, then it's something I'm incapable of hearing, or at the very least, completely indifferent about.

Yup. Unless I spend $300 on my head phones too it really doesn't matter.

headphones ARE the most important thing above a certain sound quality, true.
but you can get decent ones for 150-160, and okay ones for about 75.

My grandpa got a very good pair of headphones for only $20.00. But then again, I am comparing them to the earphones that continuously shock my eardrums, so I might be a bit biased. . .
