What's the best sounding mp3 players you know of. I have a Samsung P3 which has an impressive DSN 3.0 engine in it. I'm running out of music space and am thinking about getting a Zune HD. BUT, I do not know about the sound quality. That's what I mostly care about.

Hifiman 801 and soon to be out 602 for absolute best sound quality. Also has removable storage so you have 'unlimited' storage space.
I looked at a Zune HD yesterday at BB. Sound quality was very good through the rather average headphones they had laying about. Thinking about getting one myself, or a 4G iTouch in a couple months.

Without a doubt, the HM-801.
But, you said .mp3 players, and the best ones are DAP's that play lossless.post #8 of 577/19/10 at 7:36pm
I've owned Sony X and S:flo2, which are good (the SF2 Line out is excellent), but I love the ZuneHD SQ, and the Touch 3G via line out is excellent as well.
Am interested in the HD 602, but probably might not buy one.post #9 of 577/19/10 at 11:35pmThread Starterpost #10 of 577/20/10 at 2:51ampost #11 of 577/20/10 at 2:54ampost #12 of 577/20/10 at 3:35ampost #13 of 577/20/10 at 6:06ampost #14 of 577/20/10 at 6:27ampost #15 of 577/20/10 at 9:12amQuote:
