1.) a Zune could never ever possibly be better than an ipod.

2.) yeah ipods are "hip" cool whatever, Microsoft simply has crappy software and interfaces. windows media player sucks. i still don't know why anybody uses Microsoft computers.


are you a mac? :D well anyways i have to say the ZUNE is way better than the IPOD and so is the software. I've used both so i'm not just saying, this is an actual professional experience opinion.

This won't get anywhere near 120gb

That's why I have to break down and get an iPod

this just shows how ridiculous and closed-minded some of you fanboys are. the zune does not run on windows media player, it uses its own native software which is 10x better than itunes (on windows, anyway). nice try though.

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.
Do not want.

I wish they'd throw audiophiles and musicwhores like me a bone once in a while.

I don't understand how no one has filled that gap.. there is an untapped market right now. The "excessive"/"extreme"/"geek" side to everything has a market.. why not portable audio?

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.

I wish Microsoft would release something kickass.

Apple's iPod product is so lacking. It's basically the Nickelback of gadgets.. very accessible with very little substance.

My only hope lies in Microsoft (who instead of trying to beat Apple is trying to imitate them.. uhg) and Google, who can do anything if they try. I'm waiting for Google to take this venture.

Until then we're stuck with Apple's generic, lacking, mainstream device. Excuse me while I load up the Hawthorne Heights and Hinder on it.

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

what are you talking about? they do the exact same thing: pics, vids, and mp3s. sure there's a few slight differences but nothing worth mentioning.

anyways looks like i have a replacement plan for my Zune 80 as long as they stay the course with these ZuneHD 120s. ::crosses fingers::
