Hey, I am hoping that someone has tried both and has an honest opinion. I have christmas money and wish to buy an MP3 player, I was wandering which is better, the Sansa Fuze or the Ipod Touch. I only really care about sound quality and any opinions however slight about audio quality would really help. I really don't want any price value opinions though as I want an honest opinion about only sound quality. Thank you! The stock headphones don't matter, I have sennheiser cx 300 ii's and hd 485's. I will put lossless or high bit rate audio on it. Thank you, all help much appreiciated,

Some things to consider:

Older sansa's had separate volume controls for line out vs headphone out (line out through the charging/data port) so you don't have to adjust when you switch between phones and your stereo. I expect the latest Fuze does the same. The clip uses a basic USB connection, not the custom sansa port, so no line out.

Various models have different maximum output voltage, so may not be able to match other appliances feeding your stereo.
