As a student, money is always a problem. I always want what i can't afford. But creative have come along with this neat little toy that I purchased a few weeks ago. Studying music production, i thought that this will come in handy with my Laptop, as the sound card isnt particularly good, especially compared to the massive units we have at college. So i thought i needed a small piece of equipment to boost the quality of sound i need for when im recording music at home. About the only con i can find altough I'm not 100% on this, but I'd say the vast majority of decent headphones come with their own converters for 1/4" connections to 3.5mm so an apapter is a must have as well as a quality pair of headphones. As far as size goes, this product is small enough to slip into your pocket and take on the go. So it is handy for a record producers with a small mixing desk that they can take with them on the move, or if they have a laptop and a small recording studio at home.
Best things about this device is the price for the quality. At about £70-80 (site depending) its a must have gadget.
