SQ comparison is too subjective. Not to mention, not everyone listen to the same music as you do and headphones you have. If you are really curious you should do your own comparison. It will be fun.
Rockbox's main objective is to extend the players function and versatility over the stock software, not to make it sound different. The default setting is flat which should be how the player is suppose to sound like. But of course you can do so with the EQ support rockbox has.
