I have used same song using same headphone and used same equalizer setting (rock) in both player and the iriver sounds better.
But the ipod's management feature is too nice and managing 20+ GB of music in a iriver might need much effort. As a result I chose ipod over iriver. I still listen to my iriver. I use it while I am working oout and listen my top rated songs.
I wish ipod sounded as good as the iriver.
See, I am willing to give up a little sound quality for ease of use and I know the Ipod is the best when it comes to keeping things simple. As much as I love the Iriver H320, it's extremely cumbersome to try and do anything with it.
