    Easy guys :)

    Just bought an N85 a week ago...

    ...And was wondering, will a pair of Sennheiser CX95's/ CX300's/ CX400's/ CX500's (These are some models I'm looking at) work well with my N85? Will they deliver the same sound quallity as I would with an iPod/ MP3 player?

    Phone does have a 3.5mm Jack BTW!

    (Hope I've posted in the right area)

    Cheers!!

    Not quite the same sound quality as a dedicated MP3 player. Won't sound too bad, but not as good as the best phones or dedicated quality MP3 players.

    I'd be interested to know the basis for that confident statement.

    As good as any Dedicated MP3 player, including the drivel from Apple.

    CX300's will definitley improve over the standard phones though.

    Cool ok, thank you for the replys..

    I think I should have asked if the phone MP3 player compares to an iPod/ MP3 player.

    Think I might jump straight for a pair of CX95's, seem to be reviewed higher than CX300's

    In terms of sound quality, the newest batch of Nokias, from the N95 on aren't bad, but they aren't that good either. The N85 is passable, but I personally don't think they can match a dedicated MP3 player or the best phones.

    There are some good sounding phones out there though. These aren't Sony's either.

    The Rokr is a good sounding phone, but offers little elsewhere. The Samsung i8510 is a better sounding Symbian phone.

    Some interesting thoughts, which go against the reviews of these handsets and my own experience. In my opinion, the dedicated multimedia hardware in the N series is superior to the software MP3 players in many handsets and much better than most dedicated MP3 players.

    I suppose the best thing to do would be to try it and see.

    I have the ROKR E8 and a pair of sennheiser mx 09's. The sound is amazing.

    I can say that it is a match for the ipod. :thumbsup:
