Help help choosing between 616 and 816

Hi there! I am trying to decide between the 616 and 816 and have been looking but can't seem to find many differences besides the fm on the 616, the different earphones, and the case.

Is the 816 more expensive because of the headphones supplied??
I would have thought that the 616 would be more because of the fm...

Has anyone noticed a difference in sound quality or design quality?? I wish they would have made one model that included the best features and headphones LOL!
Thanks for your advice! I am looking forward to ordering it this week. I am never happy with Ipods and can't wait to get a Sony. I haven't had one since my cassette walkman!!!

I'm pretty sure they have the same sound quality.

The 8 series has better headphones, a magnesium body, and a slightly larger screen. The 6 series has the FM radio.

I would recommend going with the one that looks to you like the better fit in terms of ergonomics. I like the controls on the 8 series better, so I went with that one.

Yep, I agree with selfnoise.

The controls on the S610 annoyed me slightly because the play/pause button sticks out, so I kept hitting it by accident. So I went with the A810. I also liked the A810 because it's a little thinner (though otherwise slightly larger) and has a little bit larger screen. I think the A810 series is near-perfect for controlling in your pocket, since the buttons are hard to press by accident. I don't think I could say that for the S610.

But if FM radio is important to you, then get the S610 and just get some nice earphones to go with it.

616 is plastic, 816 is metal. 616 has a 1.8" screen while the 816 has a 2" screen.

616 is cheapper and with FM radio function

816 is slicker with a bigger screen but with no FM radio

both have solid construction and they are like unidentical twins.

It depends on your taste and if you need FM radio
