Sound Quality in Sansa Clip vs. Fuze vs iPod vs Cowon J3
Bear with me here guys. I am interested in a purchasing an mp3 player for someone but the sound quality from the player has to be top quality as I will be getting top quality IEM's with them. I have a Cowon J3 and they are they the best in terms of sound quality I have ever heard. I have heard iPods with good headphones and never liked the sound, very lifeless, lacking clarity and muddy... needless to say I rank them last in my preferred mp3 players list.
So I want to know how the Sansa Clip and Fuze stack up against them. I know the clip is well know for its sound. Is the Fuze sound essentially the same? How do they both stack up against the J3 and the iPod?
Thanks for your help
