Let's open a can of worms: iPod touch vs Zune

I want to get a portable media player that has THE best HD audiophillic sound, plus some $400 pro headphones so I can enjoy my Trent Reznor HD like.

The ipod seems kinda conformist to me, and I don't give a crap about apps (making virtual candy and eating it?! virtually?!...)
+i hate itunes and its nazi exclusivity.

Lazy people, you can just vote.

Didn't they stop making the Zune because it sucked and nobody liked it?

If you hate iTunes nazi exclusivity you'll probably like Zune less. You can run the ipod with 3rd party software. With Zune you're shit outta luck. You have to have the Zune software (which admittedly isn't too bad) and you have to be on a Windows based computer.

I had a Zune once. I was a terrible person back then.

I've never tried a zune. I like ipod. But as I've never tried Zune I have no clue.

Shouldn't you close this thread for being a VS?


It's not really a vs as in which is best lets decide, more which should I buy and be wrong either way.


Look at Cowons, I've heard nothing but fantastic things about the audio quality as that is what you are after.

"Let's open a can of worms: iPod touch vs Zune"

"iPod touch vs Zune"

"vs"


I'm not suggesting you close the thread, I'm just wondering how hypocritical the policies on this website actually are.

^ sorry I couldn't put it in a more friendly manner.


edit:

If you judge on whether the thread is "VS" based on the content of the thread, then from which point does it actually become a "VS" thread?

No 'versus' threads
- This means no threads like 'Which is worse: Fall Out Boy or Panic! At The Disco' and 'Peanut butter or Jam?'. These threads nearly always incite really pointless arguments that we don't want in the Pit.


Unlike things like music and food, electronics can be compared objectively. Read the rules before you try to be cool and call them hypocritical.

Why do some people insist on having amazing sound quality with their portable music players? You hardly notice the difference anyway. If you want insane quality get a sound system.

And TS cares about "conformity?"
^^The above is a Cryptic Metaphor^^

Zunes are awesome. The best part IMO is the "add to Now Playing List" feature, so you can have it play a different song or album next without switching in the middle, or waiting for it to end.

Food can be semi-objectively discussed. And the topic of the discussion is no where mentioned in the rules.

I got a Zune when they first came out, still have it and use it daily. And I love the look of the "Zune Tunes" software as I call it.

I'd much much rather go for a Zune (though I use my phone for music and I never need a real mp3 player again), but if that's your reasoning for not getting one, that's just straight-up stupid.

No, that boils down to taste. There are actual measurable differences in electronics. Do the rules need every example for you to understand them?

I thought Zunes were no longer being made. And I think that touch screen mp3 players are pointless, wouldn't that drain the battery much faster than if you just had a normal screen like ipod classic?
#26
Get an Ipod. You can jailbreak 'em and they instantly become awesome

Although you can probably do this with a Zune

Not in the way there are with electronics. You can compare things like processor speeds and capacity with electronics, food just has a different flavor.

Yes, but you can do far more things with a touch screen that make it incredibly more convenient. The batteries they put in them are pretty good too, so it's not like they won't last more than a couple of hours.

That is not true. Some people chose not to eat meat or to eat healthy, NOT because they don't like the flavor of meat or whatever junk food they actually like, but for benefits that can actually be measured.

Get the freaking Galaxy Player and be done with it.



- 4-5 inch screen > 3.5 inch screen.
- Battery life is phenomenal; mine goes several days on a single charge and I listen to it all the time, browse the internet via wifi, and play games.
- Actually has a pretty indepth EQ (with the option do download a brand new, even MORE immersive EQ if you feel the need)
- Expandable memory

I have both a Zune HD and a 4G iPod Touch.

I prefer the Zune for music just because the software is much more inclined for music than on the iPod. I've read it has better sound quality, as well. It doesn't have much in the way of apps, other than little things to keep you busy, but no real association with other services like Pandora or Spotify or anything else other than Facebook and Twitter. At this stage, I wouldn't get it though, just because of how old it is. I'm sure Cowon has some device that is worth considering because I've read that they have the best devices in terms of sound quality.

Ask me more about the Zune, if you want to know more things specific.

Metro UI is great, and I'm glad Microsoft continued using it in WP7 and is going to use it in Windows 8.

That's a different kind of topic than the examples posted in the rules. Though that probably would get closed, as the vegetarians/vegans would call everyone else immoral and the non-vegetarians/vegans would say the others are girly-men.
