Out of the 2 you have listed - the iPod it is.

Simple UI and very easy to use with the computer too for transferring songs. I used the Sony for a while - never felt comfortable. With the iPod it was more like - I know this for years. SQ is nice too for the iPod. But if are a discerning audio lover - you have to upgrade the earphones.

no doubt iPOD is the best buy I have not heard any mp3 player that competes with the iPod.
