Have you ever used the equalizer on a Sony, Cowon or Samsung? A high quality MP3 player can provide a richer listening experience through earphones if the EQ & other sound enhancements are adjusted correctly.(BBE, Clear Bass, Clear Stereo, Dynamic Normalizer . . . . Especially those hard to reproduce low frequencies through smaller earphones)
I do feel that the equalizer on an iPod is pretty much a waste of time once you listen to an MP3 player that is built with sound quality as a top priority.
