Default Samsung P2 = rubbish

Ok tomorrow i think im going to consider taking my p2 back. I thaught that maby if i got the Sennheiser MDR-460 the sound would improve quite a bit and they did just not in the way id expected. and also the p2 that i have skips songs half way through which i didnt think much of at first but now its starting to piss me off. i can tell you now that the samsung s3 had better sound quality than the p2. with the p2 you need to have about 5 different eq settings to suit each song. some songs play good. but then others like disturbed it just sounds so tinny and shit its annoying. and if u turn town the high pitch tunes with the eq that reduces it but just makes it sound funny. Everyone rates the p2 highly but im starting to think its all shit. maby the p2 just needs $100 earphones to actually make it sound better. The samsung s3 played everysong evenly and good. to make the p2 sound even remotly good is with eq, no band features like rock and stuff sound good on p2. infact they sound horrible. but on the s3 you simply click rock and your good to go. maby if i get these sennheisers on the s3 maby they sound even better. well if i do get a refund i might just get another s3. if not does anyone have a recommendation for a player of equal or possibly less value?. thinking about a q1 because it had dnse 3.0 but its really ugly. the only reason i dont get the p3 or q2 is that its not released in new zealand.

the skipping problem isn't something I've encountered.
I either use normal or Perfect Itunes Eq on my P2 and the sound is amazing.
The earphones i'm using are on the cheap side, around 30 bucks.

What kind of music are you listening to? Try the EQ setting perfect itunes from emodio.

And, please, use paragraphs. I do the same as you sometimes w/the sentences, but you're going to extremes.

yesterday I converted to the Icommunity by buying an ipod touch 2G.

And I can only confirm that the sound quality of that isn't near as good as my P2.

I take back what i said about the p2, i returned it and got the sony walkman thats on top 5 2008 mp3 players and that was rubbish. the only good think that the sony has was good bass. and the earphones were really good stock earphones. Ithink that the p2 needs good earphones to make it sound that good. i wonder you can buy the sony earphones that came with the mp3 seperatly.
