    MP3/M4A/AAC Sound quality depends upon three things:

    a) The source quality (crap in = crap out)
    b) Encoding bit rate - the higher the better but that increases file size. Good music will come at 192 kbps or higher.
    c) The quality of headphones or sound system.

    It is only on the final point that iPOD or Sony Walkman can be compared when it comes to music quality. And I do not think Sony is any better. iPOD scores much better in terms of other features.

    Choice is entirely up to an individual. But what you should do is as follows:

    a) Upload the same song, same file on iPOD and Sony
    b) List to them with the original headphones.
    c) Interchange headphones and listen again
    d) Compare results.

    This will be the true test result. I am not disputing Sony's quality. All I am saying that make qualified statements after an apples to apples comparison. Who knows, you may be right and Sony may be better.

    I am also contesting your statement that 7 people out of 10 will go for Sony rather than iPOD.

    - My office is full of young people like you.
    - We have 55K employees and 6300 alone in Pune.
    - Average employee age is 26
    - Amongst all the people who own music players, 90% are iPODs (I see that in the bus)

    Default Sony still the best

    Sony's sound quality is unmatched, people go for style and buy IPODs (half of the people buy Ipods just for the sake of it). You can't compare Sony's audio quality with Apple's (for how long Apple has been making portable audio devices???, Sony is the creator of em). Buying Apple's Ipod in India is same as people visiting McDonalds (lifestyle).

    Just plug in to Sony's NWZ 818 with the factory supplied headphone (Ex, balance highs and lows) and find out the difference by yourself. Also, if you listen to the older version walkman and the Apple nano, there is a big difference in sound.

    If you really know about music and want the best sound quality, go for Sony. If you want style and show-off (defeats the purpose) go with Apple Ipod.

    I too would go for sony walkman when it comes to sound quality but would not recommend it for poor battery life. By the way how can you compare a mobile phone and an mp3 player. each are good on their own ways but when it comes to sound quality, my preference is sony walkman.

    Default Poor battery life?? You must be joking!!

    Sony's latest walkmans have steller battery life with up to 36 hours of continous playback of audio?? What else you expect?

    And about the sound quality, Apple sucks with its suppied white tiny tot headphones compared to EX series Sony ear buds. Sony's latest players have DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) that enhances the sound quality for even low bit rate songs (you can easily hear the difference), 5 band equilizers, 2 custom, clear stereo and clear bass technology are working behind the screen of Sony's latest 810 and 820 series!!

    Thx
