    i was wondering if i was using earphones to listen to the mp3s on moonshell, would the quality be equally as good as, say running the same mp3s on ipod or a mp3 player?

    No, the DS is not designed for high quality sound.

    I think it's okay. Not the best sound quality ever, but I've seen dedicated mp3 players with worse sound output. If you have a DS and several gigs of flashcards/memory cards (and you carry the DS around already), there's no point in getting an mp3 player only for the sake of a barely noticeable change in quality. And even then, to get noticeably better quality, you'd have to cough up the moneyz for an iRiver, iAudio or Creative Zen. The DS is good enough as an mp3 player.

    i don't really know what everybody else is using, but for me the quality is perfect. I compared between my ds lite and ipod and I didn't notice any difference [​IMG]

    I think the quality is pretty nice when paired with my AudioTechnica earphones [​IMG]

    The lower quality, is that a limitation of the software currently available or the fact that the NDS just has an average sound chip in it?

    I've heard (can't remember where) that the DS can only output 128KB audio. I'm not sure if this is 100% true, but it sound's likely. MP3's I play on my Insignia sound different from the ones on my DS sometimes. You won't notice at all unless you have some super high quality earbuds.
