Audio Quality 5g vs 2g

I have a 2g ipod touch and the headphone jack is broken. I can either get it fixed for 50 bucks or go for a 300 buck 5g. What I want to know is if there is an increase in audio quality between he generations. I use a pair of Sl 99s by Ludacris (100 buck headphones) if that helps at all.

I actually upgraded from skullcandy titans to my current headphones about a year ago. I felt like the build quality, mids , highs, and the cable were all an improvement over my skullcandys. Went through a pair of titans within a couple of months when the cable stared to come loose from the audio jack part. I personally like the SL99 better, but that's just my opinion.

dude, if you are looking into sound quality then Ipod touch is not a good choice. It is used mainly for games and video, that why the screen is so good. For music, its not worth $299. Go spend $79 on Walkman e series better.

Nice use of Ronald Reagan's catch phrase.

But I think Raccoonboy has a point there. The sound quality of iPod touch hasn't improved much over the generations IMO. All the other features were improved except the most cardinal one of a music player -sound quality.
