Thumb Down Fuze+ review (fail)

They should let Jasmine do the reviews....she at least tries different earphones than the included ones! Shame on you, Donald Bell....epic fail.

Isn't Donald Bell even their resident "audiophile"?

He's more like their resident Zune and iPod fanboi,............"audiophile" he's definitely not.

That said, the fact that the Fuze+ is sonically on par with the iPod Nano, and available at half the price, is no small feat. But if audio quality is of paramount importance, you're better off looking at players from Sony, Samsung, or Cowon.
Well, he was right on with his last comment IMO. Still, all will change if RockBox ever hits this - but I doubt that since the controls are the "wonky" touch-based type.

Despite his claim of "average" sound quality, whatever that means (sound quality sounds little different from the Fuze and Cnet gave the Fuze a top rating for its good SQ) I thought his review was decent enough. Did the review fail because the Fuze+ is crap or because he was too harsh? I am admittedly confused.

Edit: Ok, I see what you're saying, he didn't test the Fuze+ with anything but the stock earbuds. I failed to even notice that in the review somehow. His claim of "average" sound quality makes sense then, I presume.
