Default 4 Out of 6 Prefer the Sound of the Zune Over the iPod

http://www.cliczune.com/2007/05/audio_quality_r.html

"Which one is better? The Zune or the iPod? Difficult to say but CNET-Crave found a way to avoid fan bias. They did a simple "Coke-Pepsi challenge" with people in the street.  Participants had to listen to each player and tell them which one sounds the best. Of course, just like the old "Coke-Pepsi challenge", they didn’t know what player they were listening to.  Results of the test: iPod: 2 and Zune: 4. So, based on a very small number of people, the Zune has a much better sound quality."

Much as I love the Zune (and dislike all things Apple), I think it would have a little more fair to ask a few more people.  Like maybe 10?  In any case, I'm glad to see the Zune hold its own in a 'blind' listening test.  So, do you concur?  Do you find the Zune to have superior sound quality to the iPod?  I know the sound quality of the Zune is very good, but I've never owned an iPod to compare it to...
