Which one?

I'm about to return my 4th gen iPod 20GB which i purchased for 494$ canadian. Garbage, sure its pretty and easy to use but i dont CARE about ease of use. 1. the sound quality is absolutly DISGUSTING!! Where's the bass? Equalizer setting make the damn thing distort even at low volumes. I did not pay all that dough for this terrible disgrace. My old MZ-N510ck had better sound quality then this thing. I'm currently looking at the zen touch, or the iRiver 20gig player. Anything else i should look at? (and btw my left earbud stopped working, bass drive screwed up and it just treble for the iPod). Any suggestions? I need portability, nice menu functionality like the iPod but most importantly GOOD BASS!! I want it to sound good outta the box, i'm not going to go spend an additional 140$ on headphones! Please help. Thanks for reading.
