SanDisk Sansa review

S anDisk was founded in 1988 by a gentleman named Eli Harari. SanDisk went through an extensive growth over the past few years, and is the largest supplier of flash memory products in the entire world today. The techniques SanDisk developed allow for storing large amounts of files on USB sticks, digital cameras, mobile phones and digital audio / video players. The Sansa series seems to have appeared out of nothing, yet set the world on fire and not without success; SanDisk now occupy the second spot on the American market.

Music quality of the SanDisk e280

The sound the SanDisk Sansa e280 produces is very nice. It's sharp and clean. In fact, everything you'd expect from an MP3 player; the earplugs fit well and feel soft in your ears. On top of that, they stay perfectly well in place and are very light. The sound never blew me away, in fact it remains excitingly consistent. Every genre is played while keeping every detail, which makes it a joy to listen to.

SanDisk Sansa e280 equalizer settings

The equalizer allows you to take your pick from a few preset options for various genres, among them, rock, classic, hip-hop, dance and high/low tones. The SanDisk Sansa e280 also features a manual equalizer (providing it's equipped with the newest firmware; visit the SanDisk website to find out). It is extremely convenient and there is sufficient choice, even though I tended to put the equalizer to 'Normal' since I found the sound to be best without equalizer adjustments.
