    Hey!
    I just wan't to know how the DHD works as a musicplayer. Mainly, I wan't to know how bad it is for the battery life. I hear the DHD has a poor battery to begin with.

    Depends..with SRS or Dolby, it tends to be a drain, normal settings you can get a possible full day..when I say full day, I mean a working for example 9-5 day

    yea that's what i'm doing currently. I got a 31gig micro sd card, and got about 29 gigs of music.. and using my bluetooth headset it lasts for much more than a full day. I get back home at 6 and i'm still at 40%

    You're out 9-6, when leaving it's 100 % and 6 o'clock it's 40%? How much time in that period do you listen to music? On normal settings, right?

    I'm not quite sure what the difference is other than that Dolby probably gives better sound. To compare, is normal settings the kind of quality you get on e.g an iPod Touch (which I use currently)?

    Its SQ is quite poor (GSMarena review), so I would have thought as an mp3 player its not that good, regardless of battery life...

    Well I use my Denon AH-D501 headphones with Dolby most of the time and the quality of the sound is immense :)

    About how much time do you spend listening to music on the DHD on a daily basis?

    I'm sure that Denon AH-D501 will drain the battery like hell :D

    Price-wise, I recommend Sennheiser CX150 - not expensive and good sound quality.

    There is problems when you use bluetooth headsets. The sound is delayed very slightly, just enough to be noticeable. I believe all android devices have this issue.

    We really need a video player that lets you lag the video by a split second to make up for it.

    Ok, but this problem doesn't occur with normal headsets? That aren't wireless?

    Battery aside, I'd recommend WinAmp to play the music, miles better than the stock music player

    PowerAMP from the Market, and Boss in-ear headphones, makes me a very happy person!

    About an hour a day with Dolby

    I like to listen to high quality sound.

    My taste in good sound is like picking out a stunning woman ;) xD

    Problem I found with Winamp, no Dolby or SRS..couldn't seem to enable it, made my music sound wierd

    Never used the default headphones or loudspeaker to be honest.

    the stock headphones are ok ... ish .. but you want to spend some cash on a decent pair but then again if you want hands free and not bluetooth you need the crappy htc ones
