Default 8100 for MP3s like iPod

Please Login to Remove!

If I use my 8100 to store and listen to MP3s, would there be any difference between the file and sound quality if I were to buy and use a 1 GB iPod. Or would buying some quality ear buds/head phones increase the sound/volume quality for the 8100. Thanks.

Quality earbuds would definately help. I havent noticed any bad sound quality on the device though, it really does depend on the file encoding.

Ok, thanks. I've used the factory wired headset and the volume is pretty low

that would depend entirely on the song, the pearl media player when on speakerphone can be heard in another room (on the songs i have)

My volume goes higher than I use so what I'm about to say may or may not be the case with RIM. Manufacturers of anything that can have headphones/earbuds attached are somewhat attempting to comply with possible law changes. There are those trying to get a maximum DB level set that all devices must comply with. This is so the volume cannot be adjusted above what they think is a safe level. These people, in my opinion, should mind their own business. However, they feel as more younger children are using such devices they must interfere.

The 8100 (right out of the box) can hold 1 or 2 MP3's songs!!! So people usually buy a 1, 2, or 4 GB micro SD card to hold more memory.

There are tons of threads with this info. You have to use the search to find them.
