I thought this is why SanDisk used a metal plate shielding the circuitry from interference on the original design of the Clip, unless they’ve removed it in the newer “+” version I don’t see any added benefit from adding foil. Rather than your suggestion I would recommend an impedance adapter or a portable amp as saratoga has already suggested, less risk as a recommendation to others.
