Default FYI, Samsung Instinct vs Samsung P2 A2DP

I was quite shocked today when I tried the Samsung Instinct's A2DP output against the P2. Using the Motorola S9 as my evaluation headphone, I sampled the same file on both devices.

The S9/Instinct combo brought out much more bass than the P2/S9 can generate. The S9/P2 pairing sounds lifeless and flat in comparison. The S9/Instinct combo are almost made for each other. There are issues but for the most part, The Instinct has more pleasing A2DP characteristics. The S9 is too high frequency biased for the P2. A mp3 player shouldn't be eclipsed by a phone.

Samsung, give the users EQ/DNSe control under BT like the T9B for heaven's sake! If the T9B can handle it, the P2 should be able to.

Sadly, you don't get what I mean:
1) The P2 has a lack-luster implementation of A2DP. My Treo 800w (Windows Mobile 6.1) with a registry hack sounds better. It's a business class phone!
2) The S9 lacks punch with some A2DP devices.
