Zune has once chance to get me:

A big HDD.

If any of you AP kids right here made a portable MP3 player with a 200GB+ hdd I'd ditch Apple in a second. My 80GB is too small, the 160GB hardware blows, and 120GB just doesn't cut it. Doesn't Apple unveil new products in like three weeks? Can I pray for a big iPod then?
I have read rumors of an OLED screen iPod Touch. If they can bring out a 64GB+ Touch, I will buy it in a second.

Headphone jack is shoddy quality. Two friends have it, I plugged in headphones ($99 Bose.. not spectacular phones by any means, but good enough) and the quality just sounded poor. Not enough bass being passed through in comparison to my 80GB. Treble was kind of shaky, too. Same files, no EQ, etc, as my 80. I couldn't believe it.

If you are listening to music on $99 Bose headphones, you are not an audiophile. Stop acting like one.

Point being on (shitty) $99 headphones you can hear the difference. You don't need to be an audiophile or have $500 headphones to pick up the difference. Which is why the 160GB is of no interest.

This isn't even an MTV thread and we can't get along.
I'll trust the numbers and facts before I follow your subjective evaluation of a compressed audio file coming through Bose headphones.
