what do they mean? not all earphones have them in their specs, but how do I tell the sound quality of an mp3 player by its specs... i had my eye on the MSI Megastick 256mb, but a review said it has useless earphones marked at 20mW... then some *great sound quality* iRivers had 12mW per L + R... then those sony plug-in-to-your-ear earphones were rated at max of 100mW... im getting confused... any1 clarify how to tell good quality from specs and what the mW actually do?

mW is milliwatts. It doesn't mean higher or lower quality, just a more or less powerful and/or differently designed speaker.

More power (milliwatts :cool: ) means the speakers have the potential to be louder. It also means they'll drain batteries faster if you're cranking the volume up all the time.
