[bookport] Re: Sound Quality

Strictly my subjective point of view but I don't like the sound of the ear
buds that come with the Book Port.  It sounds much better to me with other
earphones I have used with it.  If you have other earphones try those
instead of the buds and see if it sounds any better ... that is assuming you
are using the buds in the first place, of course!
