HP Touchpad Beats Audio vs Apple iPad

I made a video comparing the sound quality of the EVO 4G and the Palm Pre 2 against the HP TouchPad and I got a request on Twitter to compare the TouchPad against the iPad. You are the judge, they are both playing the same song at max volume.  I used a Kodak Playsport Zx5 and recorded the video in 1080p.  I think it is pretty clear that the TouchPad with Beats Audio has a deeper bass, but it does not distort the music during playback.  However, you may get the impression that there is some sound distortion on the video, but I think this is due to the microphone limitation of the Playsport video camera.  I may be able to get a hold of an iPad 2, but it may be in a couple of weeks.


Is Beats Audio a gimmick on the TouchPad?

Some people say it is the best sound they ever heard from a tablet, others say it is just a gimmick and it just another marketing scam.  Well, I will let you be the judge of that with this video.
