Summary: The Colorfly C4 Pro is a solid device for people that want a desktop replacement they can move around or take with them. It boasts up to 96GB’s of storage at the moment and comes with all the bells and whistles you would want from a desktop unit. The unit sounds fantastic, and comes equipped with a simple UI for file navigation. The C4 does fall a bit flat in the areas of build quality, and has a few physical and software usability issues.
Pros: Amazing Sonic Quality, very traspnarent. Retro look, plethora of features, and crafting
Cons: User Interface, general usability, some build issues, price, I/O crowding
Summary: Having had a chance to play around with the Colorfly C4 for a little over a week now, I have to say I am quite impressed. I also own the Hifiman801 unit so I've been doing some comparing of these two as well.
Let me just say, up front, my biases are towards sound quality over user interface and drag-and-drop file ease over being tethered to any software requirements.
Summary: When I first got this huge wooden-copper box, I was shocked by its classical appearance, and more by its wide sound field and clear details (my headphone is AKG K514). As a hifi player designed purely for music, its sound surely worths the high price. Below are my experiences of listening to various music with it.
First is about my favourite album, Sam Lavine's Hifi Sax (WAV).
Summary: My player has basically 2 build quality flaws: 1- there seems to be something loose inside of it; I can only notice it if I shake it; and 2- the "up" arrow doesn't always work correctly; it is tricky to press it correctly. But the sound quality is phenomenal. I agree with all the good reviews.
I can't seem to be able to add to the comments section.
Summary: First of all I just want to put a caveat on the User Interface notion. At the end of the day, we are striving for sound and we all do crazy things to get the best, gripes about it are meaningless and in reality just spoils any review and we have all been spoiled by the iPod's UI, but an iPod sounds like a lump of clay, so with that done.
This is mind blowing, I have no idea why this product is not more widely known about and that sales are not massive.
Pros: Sound Quality, Build Quality, Micro SD slot for as much expansion as you could ever want, 6.7mm Jack, Output Options.
Cons: There are no Cons if you can afford it and are an Audiophile
Summary: (Price in $'s is approximate)
I use this player with my Beyerdynamic T5p headphones. What an awesom portable rig :-)
The clarity and purity of thew sound is amazing. This player may lack in some areas, but so far the most important part, sound quality, is unbeatable by anything else that I have heard.
Summary: Just amazing!
It sound very uncolored and very deitailed with my Sennheiser HD598.
Interface is plain simple, if do you want a cool interface buy an iPod.
This is really all about sound quality.
It worth the price. Very satisfied!
Summary: I got my player in January, but it has taken me a long long time to enjoy it. The burn in process is very long so you better let it play for at least one week prior to listening.
My player was extremely siblant, but has settled over time. I even had to go back to the original cable. It was too painful to listen to.
Still need more time to get rid of the last siblance. It probably has something to do with my IEMs which has a 119dB sensitivity.
Pros: Cool looks, no stupid interface for transferring files, amazing SQ for the price
Cons: Only accepts WAV as hi-res, long transfer time, too much power for my IEMs, long burn in process, the digital connections doesn't accept HQ cable.
Summary: BTW I'm from Scotland so I paid £555.00 for mine, not $555.00 THXU
1st off lets get this out the way then eh ;
Baterry life isn't great & TBH with you it was never ever going to be great unless they made it bigger by giving it a higher capacity battery making it bigger, so you kind of know this from day 1 that loud amazing sound comes at the cost of battery drain
Now where to begin hmmzzz...
Pros: It just sounds so so so good it'll keep amazing you !
Cons: Baterry Life Not Great, But hey theres a downside 2 nearly everything IMHO
Summary: Bought it some time ago, based on user reviews. Straight out of the box it seemed huge, especially compared to my old Cowon D2. Also, sound was awful. Granted, I don't have large hi-fi cans, only IEM's, AL iM716 and now I bought UE triple.fi pro-s. So, I let the player burn in. For 3 weeks straight. I also let my new triple.fi-s burn in. After that, my Colorfly sounded a bit better, but it still didn't sound much better than my old D2.
Pros: can't even list anything except cool appearance
