Default 4.0 and 5.0 FM sound quality & reception

Subjective, but...

To me the 4.0 FM sound is VERY thin virtually no bass -- all mids and highs.

The 5.0's FM sound is much more balanced and has some bass.

Just the FM only -- music files sound great.

Both have a FM reception issue:

The stereo detection above 100 MHz is almost non-existent -- even with strong radio signals. It reminds me of the old Apple FM clip accessory which exhibited the same problem. The problem isn't the headphone cable -- type or length.

In contrast, the Clip Zip has no issue with detecting stereo from reasonably strong stations at or above 100 MHz.
