@Forte: If that is all you care about I'd got for something from Cowon. Now, before you did that, you'll also need an audiophile headset and make sure you have your music in a lossless format at least.As long as you still listen to mp3s the ipod should do just fine, now if you would tell us what headset is being used and it would be even better if you could tell us which part of the sound quality is lacking? We might be of a bit more help.
As long as you still listen to mp3s the ipod should do just fineI am comparing it to my desktop sound card. Listening to audio on my PC's high end sound then listening to it on my iPod is really jaring because the iPod is so inferior.
CowonGoing to try to find one and test it for a week. Looks like the Audiophile's media player. Just what I was looking for.
@Mirado: 2 pairs. Koss PortaPros when jogging. Sennheiser HD 598s in my apartment.
Truer words never spoken.
I tell you what, it's like having a pretty girlfriend that has 6 kids, a crazy x husband and $50k credit card debt. Some things are better left alone.
You have to be a damn computer engineer to get your music on the deviceQualified.
Sony players generally sound pretty good as well.
I went with the Cowon.
@Forte: Good to hear. Which model did you pick?
Used S9 8GB. Much better FLAC playback and surprising Linux support. Looking good so far.
