Got a headphone adaptor offa the invariable-shipping-cost-of-five-dollars Nintendo Store site (for my third -- maybe second and a half? -- SPee), and I listened in on the songs... there is much more to 'em than you'd think listening to the monaural speaker of a GBA.
Also, I think the headphones that came with a somewhat off-brand MP3 player are very clear (that, or I just have bad memoral judgement of other experiences), with the downside being there's ear buds, which don't stay nor stay in that well on me. --- "we must [...] learn to think ourselves fortunate whilst one remains whom the spoiler has not seized." -- V.

Picked it up yesterday, amassed 75 stars in one evening.
Okay, I admit a number of them came from games I had played before on earlier galleries, and I'm familiar with the timing needed in the original G&W games from playing the hell out of said earlier games.
