Using Nokia 7610 as an mp3 player

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

Is it any good the sound quality? What special headphones would I need,
and how long would the battery last if I used it as a pseudo i pod?

Are there any other better Bokia phones for mp3 listening,

thanks

    Yesterday I used the Nokia PC Suite to transfert audio CD track to my
    frind's 7610. The software first convert the audio track into a AAC
    format (I am not sure what it is, looks quite similar to MP3, as the
    size is approx. the same as an MP3). I think it's a Nokia proprietary
    modified version of MP3 or something like that. The sound from the
    speaker is quite good (for a phone speaker, I mean). Using the
    headphone, the quality is not bad, but sure not as good as a iPod or CD
    player. On the 64 memory stick, we could load all the songs of 2 audio
    CDs. There is still some space but not enough for another CD.

    No, AAC is MPEG4 audio.

    Note (and its an important one!)

    There does not appear to be a way to connect STEREO head phones to this
    phone.

    and I thoght the sound from the speaker was DREADFUL - but thats just my
    opinion.

    Thanks. I didn't spend the time to check anything about the format. I
    knew the MPEG4 format was great. No wonder it is in Reduced Memory Devices.

    The initial N-Gage (not the QD - they left this out) has a fantastic mp3/aac
    player - Stereo output, EQ settings, bass boost etc. Its just a shame they
    have not catered for this software on other devices - 6600 etc.. UltraMP3,
    MP3go etc really sound awful in comparison.

    Yeah that's how it's designed I suppose.

    N-Gage = Games + Symbian + MP3 but no camera
    Nokia 6320 = Some games + MP3 + camera but no symbian
    Nokia 7610 = Excellent Camera, Symbian, More Games but poor MP3

    = more cash and diversity for nokia than to make a super phone.

    Is the MP3 capabilities on the Nokia okay in Mono? Where can I
    get this Ultra MP3, and what headphones will I need?

    For ultraMP3 go to www.lonelycatgames.com if you want to download a trial or
    try www.terrocro.com, . I use it on my 6600 with the standard Nokia HDD.
    (H/Phones) It is mono and does sound a tad tinny hence having to swap over
    to my n-gage...

    Nope, AAC is nothing to do with Nokia (apart from them using it for sound
    files). It has been out ages and I'm sure you can find info about it if you
    search on the web. It's a different compression technique but similar
    compression ratio to mp3 usually, sometimes even better (or better quality
    or something) if I remember the hype on it's introduction (if you believe
    it). I can't remember if MicroSoft or someone else came up with it as a
    competitor to mp3.
