Let me repeat that I'm not an audiophile, so I haven't had the fortune of experiencing much high-end audio equipment in my life...
Just recently bought myself a pair of Creative WP-350 Bluetooth headphones (can't afford anthing more expensive).
And I can tell you that if the sound the Pandora produces through ordinary earbuds amazed me, the sound through my WP-350's is literally orgazmic. (for me anyway).
A few thoughts, which you (or anyone) can take or leave.
- If you found "bog-standard earbuds" to be jaw-droppingly good, your opinion of SQ means very little in the context of what Head-Fi members are interested in. No elitism, just fact.
- There's been some negativity toward the product, sure, but most of that is toward its apparent useability as a dedicated DAP (not a pocket-PC, which is its intended design). Most of the crap-talking has been in response to a fanboy who hadn't even seen or heard it opining as though it were fact and making statements he was in no position to make, not to mention talking nonsense about Samsung build quality and bumping the heck out of a topic with limited interest.
- No-one's saying it's a **** product or idea, just that it is sure as hell not the incredible DAP the OP touted it as. It is no competitive with other offerings in a lot of areas - Size, price, DAP-centric features, UI, auxillary functions (they're great, if you want every one of its specific offerings and nothing else, but most people don't). As a Pocket-PC and private project, it's sweet. As a DAP, it's not competitive with other current offerings in the opinion of a lot of people. That should only offend you if the devs set out to make a competitive DAP.
- OT, literally means literally, not "x1000". If listening to your new phones makes you come in your pants every time you listen, I'm happy for you, but you might wanna get that looked at :P
