torrentblock is on a distinguished road
GSM arena's scores give a +0.5 bass boost around the sub bass mark. personally, i'd rather have it completely flat like on the iPhone... if a producer wanted to boost in that range they would.

at the end of the day, the headphones you use (or the stereo you put it through) will have a far more drastic effect on sound quality and the difference between the iPhone's output and E7/C7/N8 will be imperceptible on your average hifi/high street headphones.

on a pair of HD25sp's i'd take the pepsi challenge though, but again, if you're listening to mp3's, what's the point in taking sound quality so seriously?

Apple's strategy continues to vex me with the new "hd audio" for sale as if finally selling things at CD quality is some kind of massive achievement/innovation...
