I'm going to be buying an MP3 player within the next week and these are the two front runners. The Zen Xtra can be had for $30 cheaper, but I would be happy to buy the Karma if many think it's a significantly better product. Main concerns are size (just needs to fit well in jean pockets or leopard skin thong without being distracting), sound quality, and durability. I've read a handful of complaints over at cnet about the Zen's headphone jack, which is a concern.
