I have just bought an MZ-N710 and was shocked at how poor the level of volume is - 1.2mW in each ear according to the people at the sony help desk. That is simply not loud enough if you want to listen to music that has heavy bass and that needs to be listenend to loudly.
I am trying to replace it for an MZ-E510 as according to agoraquest.com it has a volume ouptut of 5mW. Can anyone please confirm the output of the MZ-E510 as i have seen a few mistakes on this sight and i dont want to replace my MZ-N710 with the MZ-e510 and find it has the same poor quality volume.

The same model may have diferent specifications in different parts of the world. This is why you have to be extra careful when reading stuff on the net (cross-coutry online shopping and cut-and-past-html'ing isn't helping either).
Due to some E.U. legislation about not destroying the ears of our youth with loud music, the European versions of the MZ-xx10 models have ridiculously low output. The N710 as well as the E510 are available elsewhere with higher (i.e. 2x5mW) output. Guess you're left to online shopping if you want some oompf in your ears... Just remember to check that you get a charger with the right voltage as the yanks and Japan (among others) run their gear on clicking here) " target="_new"> (Email Address will not display unless member has 100 posts or is a Premium Member,

Also, are you aware of the fact that the MZ-E510 is a player, not a recorder? You would need a unit called MZ-Nxxx (or MZ-Rxxx) to be able to record stuff to your discs (unless you already have a deck). Also, there are models called MZ-NExxx which have no line in but can record via the USB port from your PC.
