Default Picking up a Sansa fuze tomorrow, few questions.

Hey, for awhile I've been debating the Cowon D2 VS the iAudio 7 VS the Fuze, and the other day I was looking through some fliers, and futureshop is selling the 4gb fuze for $60 if anyone wants one (Canada)

So, even if I don't love it, it's no huge deal.

So my questions are these:
The MicroSD intregrates, right?
There's a custom EQ right? The review didn't say, as far as I saw.
Can it play the HD-201s well without an amp? I plan on ordering them.
How big do MicroSD cards go Now? And how much do they usually cost?

Thanks.

1.Yes, it integrates.
2.There is a custom EQ.
3.Sorry, don't know.
4.Biggest one is 16 gigs. They sell for $44. 8 GB is also a steal at $15. Here is the page on amazon.

1. It integrates nicely.
2. I would touch the EQ personally it seems to distort the sound for me
3. Ive never used those particular phones
4. Search online at futureshop or bestbuy and wait for the right time and you can get some nice deals in $CDN

I just got this same deal and I'll swear by it. I also picked up a 4GB MicroSD for $20 while I was there, so I didn't get the greatest price ever, but I did fairly well at 90$ for the whole thing, 4GB Fuze + 4GB SD. And I was stepping up from a 2GB e200 whose screen finally cracked, so I just don't know what to do with all this space!

As for headphones, I use a pair of HD 555s at home and PX 100s on the go, so I can't tell you how the 201s are going to be. I seriously doubt you will need an amp though.

The HD201's, without an amp, you have to turn the Fuze up pretty high to get a good listening level with them. But a FiiO E3 or E5 will push them just fine....I have both FiiO's and the 201's.

fuzzypits:

You might check you local Canadian Wal-Mart. The 8gb silver Fuze was still $80 here a week ago. Sorry haven't looked since.
