    oh yes man, the fm really sucks for the 2 creative models, one reviewed by mr brown and the other my 2 yr old zen nano plus….even my mum’s $6 pocket radio works better than my zen nano plus.

    i use the nano plus more for usb thumbdrive nowadays.

    Hey Mr Brown, I don’t really fancy technology gadgets but I enjoy watching your WTF show because your reviews are so creative and funny. Thanks for the laughs and insights. :-D

    this creative zen stone is cheap small but quite irritating functionality ( ages to search for a song ). personally i would prefer my sennheiser HD 515 headphone which i bought for SGD$228 which has pretty good noise cancellation but excellent sound quality. i tried the aurvana but it was very uncomfortble to have it on my head for more than 2 hours. comfort wise not very comfortable one and 500 bucks for that hmm maybe its overly priced audio technica produces premium noise cancellation headphones for way cheaper price dude.

    i guess for at $99 bucks for a feature laden mini player, one shouldn’t expect too much. i have the 1st gen zen stone plus which i paid $89 when it was launched. getting around the diffirent features is still a pain as it always have that lag there when, say. you switch from your mp3 to radio. however, it is great company for my gym and runs and it also deters people from coming over for a chat at gym which i hate. i also bought the `smaller’ version of the aurvana headphone set a year ago at the PC show. it kind slots into your ear. paid something like $150 for it. not entirely noise free but good enuf for me as it is very portable and gives good sound. i use it on my plane travels all the time. i think Creative stuffs have improved over time. it still lagged a certain Apple in terms of snob appeal but i paid $600 for a gen 3 iPod a few years back and it died after 1.5years. it is now a museum piece on display on my study. $99 mp3 player is the deal now after i learnt an expensive lesson.

    Creative just did a move to screw the very customers and people helping to make their products Vista compatible.

    i think i made a great choice between the aurvana and shures $99 in-ear phones.

    tested both at their booths, the shure scl2 doesn;t do noise cancellation but it totally blocked out the crowd noise at the IT show early this 2008.

    the noice cancellation one from creative… didn’t do as much blockage… rite now i dun eve n use my shure at volumes above 1/4 or 1/5 of the total volume which is still quite low on my ipod.
