I am sure this sounds the same as a $50 DAP.

Planned to get this but ultimately opted out due to the uncompetitive price for Sony's international model (16GB vs 64GB).

I have a Hiby Seed inner ear headphones ordered with a 4.4 mm plug that I am selling for the price paid. $69USD / $96CAN for sale. They haven't arrived yet. Will sell unopened, brand new. Don't need such a large plug. Willing to negotiate for a fair price.

The A version comes with English and simplified Chinese. You can change this with a region tool later as well.

Here in Australia I was lucky to get the 64GB one for a bit less than this drop is offering the 16GB.  You can get a 64GB MicroSD for less than US$25, and a 256GB for around US$100. I really like this DAP (Walkman). It looks, feels and more import ally sounds really good. It does sound better than the Samsung S8 + Mojo combination. It drives all my earphones \ headphones well with the exception of the HD6xx. I use the Mojo for the HD6xx, it has more power. I don’t have balanced cables for the HD6xx, so I have not tested in balanced mode.  Sony NW-ZX300 + Meze 99 match made in heaven.

Wow an impressive 16 GB storage. That's supposed to be an upgrade over 64 GB? How is that worth $99 more? Also, shouldn't it be 400 GB or greater for this price?

Try https://www.joybuy.com/product/600192296.html. $349 plus free delivery. I have not found a good deal since this site became "Drop".

Sure, that is cheaper (Joybuy has always been cheaper, when they were in stock, almost bought it from there myself until I had a friend actually going to china pick one up for me in person). But that is the 16GB china-only version (ZX300A, like in this Drop), I was replying to the OP who claimed this drop was $100 more than the higher storage US/EU 64GB version (ZX300). That's actually the cheapest I’ve seen it on Joybuy in a long time... I wonder if it is to offset tariffs and maybe higher customs fees. And yes, since this site became popular (prior to the name change), they became under more scrutiny from manufacturers and other dealers. Feel free to make your own assumptions ”why, ” but Drop’s prices are now usually on par with the average market price instead of undercutting it. It's the trade-off they made to be able to do manufacturer collaborations and be able to get some goods in consistent supply, have faster shipping times. Wether you keep shopping at Drop or not is up to you. I never just shop at one store, but I keep finding reasons to come back here from time to time.

Is there a Sony equivalent with two micro sd slots? What do people recommend for a DAP with two slots? In the 600 and under range.

I actually forgot to mention that the M11 isn't readily available in the US yet, so as of right now the only way to get it is by purchasing it through AliExpress or some similar Asia-based vendor. I wouldn't worry about UI, as the M11 runs full Android 7. No Google Play though, so you'll have to install apps through APKs.

Why no streaming? If I have to get a DAP without streaming I would get Cowon. I have nothing against Sony, I own Z1R but at this price point I was hoping for streaming option. Most of my music is now a days via Qobuz so I am interested in DAP which has balanced out, Universal EQ, can work as roon end point and has streaming. At $450 + I will pass.

I would really like to get into balanced audio gear just to see what the excitement is all about. So far I don't own any, but it would be pretty easy to buy or make my own balanced cables for my HD 650 and/or Noble 3. I just don't have any equipment that can output balanced, yet. I kinda want to get something a level past "beginner" or "enthusiast" gear if I'm going to get serious enough to delve into balanced stuff, otherwise I would just feel like I paid into "good" balanced gear when I could have paid into "better" unbalanced gear. Dunno if that makes sense? Anyway, it is also sometimes true that the "better" gear also covers the balanced option at the same time. The ZX300 really just kinda seems like an A45 that adds the balanced output option (though I think the ZX300 pre-dates the A45, so the A45 might just be a dumbed-down ZX300 without the balanced output). Just out of curiosity, are the DAC and amp both balanced, or is this just a dual-mono amp and a balanced output? I can't find anything on here or the Sony website that advertises anything about having a separate DAC for each channel.

Good point, I don’t actually know if the DAC Output has a common ground (single ended). Once you get to the “good stuff,” you can find good balanced and single ended stuff around the same prices. Also, you can just make an SE Output more powerful, so power is another non- factor for choosing between them. Supposedly, balanced has less crosstalk between the left and right channels since they have separate circuits, which I would assume separation between channels would be better heard in headphones than speakers, but still monoblocks and essentially “balanced” setups for speakers are well regarded too. There might be other things to it, but as a non-engineer that’s how much I’ve picked up so far. Essentially, I look at balanced as a physical high-gain option, so the SE outputs can have low background noise for IEMs, while the Bal outs have more juice for full-sized headphones (4x as much in the case of the ZX300A). And if I’m getting an upgraded, custom length cable, the price difference between SE and Bal cables is negligible, so why not? Sometimes, with Balanced, it seems like the sense of soundstage is deeper, and even notes playing equally in both headphone drivers seem to be better separated, but it’s a small thing (better cable and better amp design makes a bigger difference than two equally good SE/Bal setups).
