Sorry to beat this topic to a pulp but i really need help here. I need you guys to recommend me a new mp3 player, best part is I DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT SOUND QUALITY. I do not need video, wifi, internet, resolution, blah blah.
Also formats and storage space do not matter (I don't know how to convert to the fancy types that take like a million gigs per file, 8gb is almost double what I need for 900 songs)
My ipod touch just broke and I was browsing and found out ipod is not the greatest sounding mp3 player (I'm not being sarcastic I just honestly thought out of all the players it had the best sound quality, and i have been buying nothing but ipods since release). I have read many threads via google and this forum and think I have it narrowed down to what I read as the best.
Sony walkman (A series. newer ones I think A864, seeing as I can't find the highly praised x series)
and some hybrid "ericsson mix walkman" (I know it's a phone but it has walkman in the title so maybe the sound quality is worth comparing?)
My headphones of choice (not that they matter) are V Moda: crossfade lp, vibe, and soon to be vibrato.
Thanks so much in advance for those of you who chime in. If there are others good players besides the ones I listed please list them :)
