Wmas will sound better than mp3s at the same bitrate. MP3s are more standard, but almost every modern player except for iPods play wma. So, as long as you never bother with iPods that shouldn't be a problem,. However, how well they sound on the player may also have a lot to do with the player itself (I know nothing about the Delphi) as well as the headphones used. Most headphones that come with mp3 players are crappy. Two notable exceptions are the Microsoft Zune 80GB and Sony Walkman (I think the A820 series). So, your mom might want to get new headphones. They don't need to be too expensive, maybe in the $30-$50 range will suffice. Take a look around at the headphone reviews on CNET.
Sorry if this has been asked before, but there are way too many threads to sift through.
My mom just got a Delphi SkyFi3 which combines XM Satellite Radio and an MP3 player. With neither of us having any experience using MP3 players, we were wondering which format is better to save music to the mp3 player. It will take either mp3 or wma formats only. wma sounds better on the computer, but would that be true for the mp3 player as well? Also, does anyone have any tips that might be good to know that isn't generally known with mp3 players would be appreciated.
Any other info that's needed, let me know. Thanks in advance.
