[deleted post]Not necessarily the case - better headphones will sometimes make a product sound worse because they let you hear the imperfections better
The bluetooth transfer mechanism (translate analogue to digital for transfer and back to analogue again in the headset) will also cause some signal degredation - for the same quality of headphone a wired connection will always offer better quality of signal transfer. And with bluetooth and you get a radiation source sitting right behind/inside your ear into the bargain (not very good for your health!)

E52 has better audio quality and much longer battery life, and you can use SIP on it via Fring (can't get SIP on Nokia 700 to work and Fring isn't compatible). On all other counts Nokia 700 is better than E52, particularly build quality. Nokia 700 is very well made whereas E52 has terrible build
I'm a musician and used to be a bit of an audiophile with a background in audio electronic design (DACs and other digital to audio processing circuits) so I have some idea what decent sound quality is - though I don't expect to get it from *any* mobile phone

Using superior quality earphones will definitely improve the audio experience. This means I can get further improved audio quality from my nokia 5230. I just can't let hold of my precious 5230 despite my current possession of nokia 700 because of the excellent music experience. I use a nokia HS-83 headset along with my phone and am planning to replace the earpieces; looking for suggestions. I will definitely give the Equalizer app a try.

Especially the enclosed neck wrap makes it easy to have around your neck..
Sometimes I use Nokia BH-111 with own 32ohm headphones attached in the 3,5 mm jack.
For adjustment of the sound output in your ears, but the application "Equalizer" in Nokia store.
Worth every cent. Euro 1....
I am very pleased.
Armaania, 16 Oct 2012Lol i am talking about loudness so tell about thatIf you mean ringtone volume then the front-facing speaker helps when it's on a desk, but in your pocket it is very quiet and I miss calls all the time
E52 has louder ringtone volume (and better sound quality from the external speaker as well!). I even moved the jazzy 'Canvas' ringtone from my E52 to my Nokia 700, but it doesn't sound as nice coming from the Nokia 700 external speaker. Again the Nokia 700 sounds a bit harsher and thinner through external speaker than the E52
Nokia 700 is much better built than the E52, maybe slightly better build quality than the E72 (itself much better than the E52). Battery life doesn't come anywhere near, however :-(

The audio quality on my nokia 5230 is far superior than the 700 and I still use my two and a half year old 5230 to listen to music. The dolby enhancement on the 700 adds a little improvement though.
jakir, 15 Oct 2012it comes with a normal belle thats why there's Nokia suite and OTA for you to update it on you... moreNot sure about the E72 but to my ears the sound quality of my E52 is quite clearly better than the sound quality of my Nokia 700 when played back through my Sennheiser CX300mk2 headphones
The E52 sounds less harsh and has more bass with better definition. Some of the more recent audio chips used in audio applications are actually worse for sound quality than older ones (though they are also cheaper), you can see the same effect in iPods which sound worse from the fifth generation onwards than the third and fourth generation versions
The interface of the Nokia 700 mp3 player works much better than the E52 version however... I was forever hitting the wrong button on the E52 player!
I want to go for Nokia 700 because my nokia 500 can not skip songs by using headphones, which is boring to me as a music lover. Is it no the case to Nokia 700? Please help me, I do not like to repeat the same mistake.....
NSRMDN., 13 Oct 2012[Symbian] THE BURNING PLATFORM
One clear and unusually calm night, Nokia packed its stuff, ... moreNice story, but still no explanation why Nokia couldn't have followed a two (WP & Symbian) or three platform (WP & Android & Symbian) product strategy (even if Symbian migrated to the mid-low end of Nokia's smartphone business), nor indeed why Elop seemingly *deliberately* killed the N9 and the Nokia 808 even though each was potentially a market leader who's only sin was not to be based on WP
Sorry, but the 'Trojen Horse' horse theory, together with Elop's supposedly huge personal holdings of Microsoft stocks is much more credible
That Accenture are demonstrating such poor 'hospice' for Symbian's autumn years should come as no surprise to anybody who has previously had dealings with that company
