Hello friends, after much thought, I have decided to ditch my current mp3 player and adopt mp3-phone.  Im currently on a Zune HD which is a GREAT player, but I want less luggage.
 
My options are down to these only.  For anyone who has the blackbery 9000, is it a great sounding player and good for mp3 usage? 
 
Im leaning more towards the blackberry due to the fact that its only 200$.
 
I tried the Iphone 4 in store and to my surprise the volume was not loud enough O_O.  on top of that the speaker was CRAP.  It was WAY too low.  A huge turn off for me. 
 
The headfones I will using are vmoda vibes.
 
Please dont recommend any other phones as they are too expensive.

The volume wasn't loud enough? Wow. But I haven't read anything about Blackberrys having great sound....the iPhone is going to have better sound quality... if it's not too loud you could get an amp...

If you are set on a Blackberry, take a look at the Torch that just came out. $99 via Amazon w/contract.

I've seen a Torch in person, but didn't get to mess with it much.
