I prefer the sound of the s639, it seems to have more detail and the fuze sometimes just seems like it's missing something to me. You wouldn't go wrong with either though, I'd suggest a listen to a fuze or clip if you can to compair. The fuze can drive higher imp cans better, but the sony has a better eq.

Not really... not at all, the Clip's EQ is not the best in the world, and Sony has very good EQ. UnEQed they both have very good SQ. Therefore, it'd make sense that the Sony will sound better EQed than the Fuze EQed.

IMO if you already have the S639, there's no need to get the Fuze. It'd probably be more of a sidestep/tip-toe back than anything else. Plus the build quality on the Sony is far superior. Although if you are looking for a very flat response the Fuze would suit that need.

Like I've said before, nothing good comes out of using an EQ. If your headphones are producing muddy bass, then it is time to upgrade the headphones. Keep the EQ flat. EQs only add distortion. Judge the quality of source once you have decent headphones.

And some of you think the fuze is missing something. That's because you are so used to listening to players that accentuate highs and lows.

Touch 2g is neutral and I think it sounds a bit better than fuze, just seems there is a little more presence than the fuze, same with the sony. Of course YMMV as always. Most always I go sans eq, although if the recording lacks dynamics I sometimes use one. Anyways OP I would go to your local BM store and give a Fuze/clip a listen, and see what you think.

If you are looking for sound quality, Sony is better.

I have the clip and the Fuze, clip and Fuze sound nice with the EQ off, horrible with it on. The S639, and my A829 both sound great with the EQ on OR off. But, the S639 sounds BETTER, super clear, detailed, amazing soundstage. Blew me away when I heard it for the first time.
