Default Is the ZVM a good sounding player?

I love my ZVM, and my sony earphones that i used till now died and i started looking on the site for reviews and for the q-jays, the reviewer said "its worth it if you have a good sounding player"

So... is the ZVMsuch a player?

Everyones ears are different. What sounds good to me may not sound good to you. The ZVM to me makes fairly cheap buds sound better. So it's kinda a subjective thing. I have skullcandy headphones & several of the different earbuds they make. The earbuds sound good to me as long as bud has the right size tip on the end so they stay in. The headphones sound real good & fit comfortably.

I've got V-moda vibes with it and it sounds AMAZING lol. The bass is so nice with in-ear phones. I would definitely recommend relatively expensive phones for sure

I use Standard 156kbps mp3's, on my ZVM. I also have the aux hook up for my headunit in my car, and too me, and just about everyone I have asked, its indistuiguishable from a CD. So yeah, It's a great sounding player. Also, For a player to have to be great sounding for the headphones to sound great, I'd steer clear. I use the SkullCandy Ink'd headphones for out of car use. Picked them up for $14.99 on sale at FYE, they sound as good as my friends bulky over the ear headphones.

Wow... I'm not sure how many times I'm going to have to tell people that skull candy phones regardless of how much you spend on them are a rip off. They sound like $4 Deal Extreme headphones because they come from the same chinese factory line that makes those cheap phones. If you buy skull candy phones and think they are good you should know that you have passed up cheaper and better sounding phones at the gas station. They are junk

Sorry to say, but your misinformed. They sound a great deal better then most of the in ear headphones ive tried. They may not sound as good as the top of the line in ears, but for noise cancealation and sound quality, I am completly satisfied.

I am not misinformed, you are uninformed. I have listened to skullcandy inked before and they don't sound any better than Sennheiser cx300's, cx400's, JVC FX66, JVC FX33, V-moda bass freq, Sony MDR-EX71SL, or the Sony MDR EX51 in fact they sound worse. I paid $2.30 for deal extreme buds and they lasted as long and sounded as good as the inked. Even at $15 you can get far better pair of in ears.
