Wise volume is a volume normaliser- your loudest tracks will play at the same volume as your quietest tracks if you enable it.
Street mode is just a bit louder for when you're outside.

Street mode is a pseudo 'noise cancellation' feature which is mean to make music more audible when your out n about. To my ears it increased the treble a bit, not much else.

Yeah- it's kind of pointless.

The sad thing is that with the P3 having an on-board mic it could be doing some REAL noise cancelling.

Does it accomplish that without altering your files? If so, that would be cool.

I actually just though wise volume was a cap on the maximum volume, a sort of thing they put in for people who are worried about damaging their hearing. I'm just guessing though... could always read the PDF manual I suppose!

Yes- it works fairly well, and can be switched on and off.

That's what I thought until Gebal asked about it and I played around with it. It's not a volume limiter- you can have it enabled and still crank the volume up, just that all tracks will have the same volume.

I wonder, is it as good as the volume normalization setting on the Sony players? If so, then it's a welcome addition, and it's just as good as "replay Gain". My Q2 doesn't have this feature, and it's something I'd love to see on it.

Wise volume does not work with bluetooth. I've only witnessed it's operation with wired headsets. Might work with internal speaker but haven't tested.

Street Mode isn't as much a noise cancelling as a vocal boosting so you can hear the song in noisier environments. ie a Warehouse.

If you are wearing a headset, pretty much a moot feature, but if you use speakers (as I do), it's a very good feature when working in a noisy environment (as I do).

In fact,if you read the PDF manual, you would find out the wise volume means if you listen music with built-in loudspeaker at maximum volume(level 30), and suddenly you insert headphone, then p3 will automatically turn volume to half the maximum volume(level 15).
That means,wise volume can protect your ears.
If you listen to the music at level 30 with headphone, your hearing will decrease quickly.
