sorry I don't have a direct answer.
there is no best player but there is the most suitable player for my need
I had the exact question for years, this is the best answer I have reached.

Boom. There you go, your question just changed completely.
Suddenly you don't want the player with the best sound quality, you want the best player that suits your listening preferences, which is exactly what you should be looking for.

Depending on your preferences, you might want something as neutral as possible and as close as possible to what the music sounded like in the studio.
Others prefer more fun or bassy sound or countless other sound signatures.

However, even though sound signature is influenced by the player to a point, what will make the biggest difference is what headphones you'll use.



Anyway, if you're on a budget, the Sansa Clip+ is very often recommended for it's sound quality.

If money isn't too big of an issue i recommend the J3 (of course), which has great quality and a truly amazing equalizer, too.

If you have money coming out your ears, check out the Hifiman line. Actually, no, check them out either way, i think they have players for every budget now, but they don't have the most neutral sound, from what i read.

The best I've ever heard is my Cowon X7. The number of sound presets covers just about every preference and you can fully tailor it to your own taste too. I imagine the same could be said for the flash based Cowon players...

That depends on other requirements you may have. I have a Meizu M6, and I think it has a rather warm ("bassy") sound to it. But, it only has 8GB of storage capacity. I listen to it a lot, and only charge it once a week (never get's completely depleted, and I've had it for about 5 years now). A pretty durable player, too. It's survived being slammed in a car door by accident once (was in a coat pocket), and it ended up with a dent in the back plate (with no other damage).

My J3 arrives tomorrow... I'll compare the two for bass after it gets done charging.

I am listening to my J3 right now. The M6 has more bass (imo) than the J3, but I personally am enjoying the way the J3 sounds much more (it sounds better on a wider variety of genres). However, if I were listening to bass heavy music (rap/techno/house/etc)... And exclusively listening to that... I would probably prefer the M6.
