Default Pink Sansa Clip

I just got my wife one of these from BestBuy and I must say, its great! The player only cost me 50$ but its worthy of the 150$ headphones that I got to accompany it. I was always a die hard sandisk fan and this just furthers my devotion to them.

150 dollar headphones for your wife? Man, that's hardcore. I could never bring myself to spend that kind of scratch for headphones that I will probably end up losing or destroying. BTW, that Clip should have been 45 at BB.

Yep, even Best Buy's website shows it as $44.99 with free shipping.

You must have an audiophile for a wife; most people wouldn't notice the sonic difference between $150 headphones and some earphones for 1/5th the price (eg V-Moda bass freq earphones on sale at amazon.com for $28.88, hint hint! ) ... when plugged into the Clip, anyway. Plugged into an expensive deck, maybe! But heck, if you've got the cash and it makes her happy, more power to ya.

Nope, it has nothing to do with "audiophile"... most likely they're just overpriced Bose phones, according to the OP's profile info...

Well, the player was 50 bucks (tax) also, I over exaggerated about the headphones they were the V-moda Vibe in Flashback Chrome Really more around 115$ The Bose are mine (and I didnt pay for them either)

I can tell the difference between my $30 Sony headphones (which are fine) and my $100 Shure pair (which I find finer).

Isn't "overpriced Bose" an oxymoron?
Sorry, couldn't help myself. I will be good for the rest of the day, I promise. Bose makes "fine" products. They are also marketing geniuses!

no, "overpriced Bose" would be redundant..."underpriced Bose" would be an oxymoron...
