Both of your sigs point to the same website. I can't help but wonder if you're the same person with two different accounts. I guess you could be work colleagues, but you're also the only two people here preferring the iPod sound over the Zune, so it just looks a bit suss.
"Sound quality" is subjective, unless you wish to define things in more specific terms, it's completely meaningless. Saying one has the edge over another means nothing, unless you can describe why you think so. A simple example would include what you listen to (eg. pop music with up-front vocals? classical music? rock music? dance and techno?), and why you prefer one over the other (vocals are clearer? drums are louder? etc.).
It bothers me a bit when people discuss sound without any reference to what they like, and stating things as if they were objectively proven ("x is better than y"). "Bass", "treble", "warmth", "clear", "punchy" all mean totally different things for people who listen to techno, to people who listen to classical, or people who listen to Celine Dion.
