I vote Zune. I think that it is just more fun to use, and will soon be able to do things on your Xbox 360 with it.

I thought about it a lot and got an ipod classic but next time I'll probably end up getting a Zune because Apples just gets lamer and lamer. I got the ipod mainly for iTunes.

Just so you know, you cant put anything you bought from the iTunes store on your Zune.

I liked Zune due to quality being about the same of product and the fact that I could get a 30gig with a case for the price of a 16gig Ipod.

Yeah it's things like that which really annoy me about Apple. They could so easily just try to make quality products but instead they are doing all of this marketing shit. I got an ipod last time and I'm happy with the decision but that's it. They aren't even doing classics any more they rather just sell to all the people who want flash games and their 5 favorite bands.

Neither: I couldn't live with such a paltry capacity.

The iPod 80gb does everything I require of it, with ease and simplicty. Most importatntly, it has the superior sound quality compared to most other music players (can't really call them MP3 players anymore) once you've ditched the Apple earphones and got some decent ones.

I can't see myself buying anything else. Not only that, but iTunes is by far the best music management system out there.

Zune. Ipods are for idiots. I said it, if you're offended cry about it. The ipod is significantly more expensive than the zune, and is essentially the same thing. Well, essentially. You see, the zune has many features that trump the ipod, such as being able to put more than just mp3 files on it, being able to actually put things on your computer from your player, and being able to sync to any computer.

They try as hard as they can to make the ipod less accessible

For idiots? You obviously don't care what goes into your ears, because sound quality should always be the major factor in what audio player you buy. Your points would be a factor if iTunes didn't automatically convert your music files to the required format: it will also sync from the iPod to the computer. Neither of these points matter though. I'm a man of sound quality and the iPod is king. If you tend to favour the larger size files for better quality like me, and don't believe music should be overloaded with bass, the iPod is brilliant. The acoustic EQ on the iPod is rich and full, with no tinniness to the sound, or needless weight from bass that destroy what the music is actually supposed to sound like.

With decent earphones its extremely hard to beat in terms of sound quality.

I love Ipod's earphones, but the player and software are sub-par. The sound quality is fairly good, but not much - if any - better than the Zune. I think it's asinine that people pay that much for a player that they could easily get for 3/4 of the price

This sorta proves my point: you don't seem to know much about sound quality. They're awful, and widely regarded as such. People who use such bad earphones miss out on so much of what is actually in the studio recording: the frequency of those earphones is so narrow and the composition so poor, I'm suprised they haven't changed them, but Apple keep making them despite being told over and over again how bad they are.

Oh I guess I don't. I love music, I'm not so nitpicky about sound quality or whatever, although if something sounds horrible like Death Magnetic then I get upset. But yeah I like Ipod headphones, they're comfortable and I've found them to have a decent sound quality.

When I was debating whether to get a 120gb ipod or a 120gb Zune I found them to be about the same price, at least back then. Though the ipod doesn't sync to every computer you can get around that detail with just a little bit of research. I think you can put more than just .mp3 files on the ipod some people hack their stuff to do all kinds of things. If you can play Starcraft on a TI-84 calculator you can probably use the ipod as a storage device for non-.mp3 files quite easily.

my argument DOES NOT concern sound quality

im like an old man in my practices, but i hate itunes. it seems so backwards. maybe they have updated it. idk.
i dont like how it changes all the media formats. i dont know if i should delete one file or the other.
i dont like the fact i cant go a-z backwards. meaning continuous loop thingymabob. if i want to go to z from a, i have to go the longways.
i dont like the sub par bookmarking feature.
i dont like the scroll wheel.
i dont like the high price
i dont like that it is a fashion accessory, or at least it was 2 years ago.
i dont like how i cant "add to now playing". im all about quick adding on the go

i DO like the large capacity
i DO like the simplicity (at times)
i do like the games (not really)
I do like the long battery life

i guess im spoiled in the fact that at the time when i got my first Creative, they had the best UI, they also let me use WMP11 which is something i was familiar with. so i have been spoiled ever sionce

I had a 1st gen iPod Nano, and it would always turn on by itself, even when I had the hold switch on. It was SOOO unbelieveabley frusturating that I just put it in a box, and stuck in the back of my closet.

Decent in comparison to what? Gonorrhea?

Metallica should have quit 20 years. And Justice for All is one of my very favourite albums but everything since then... well, sucks basically

I have a 120gb Ipod. Anything smaller just isn't worth my time. It'd take me days to go through all my music to find 30gb that I wanted to put on the Ipod touch or whatever the new one is.
