For sound quality, headphones tend to make more of a difference than the MP3 player. When all the signal processing is switched off, a competently-designed MP3 player is probably going to sound about the same as any other competently-designed MP3 player. The signal processing offered is probably going to be a greater variable. If a user is into using signal processing, the result is something we like to call the MP3 player’s sound signature.
