I'm a technology ****e.
^^I agree, my iPods battery life is great, along with the sound quality and I've dropped it on a number of occasions and it was fine.
All I will say is that anyone who uses the standard headphones that come with ANY consumer media device, including the iPod, and then complains about the sound quality isn't nearly the audiophile they think that they are.
I see that. Maybe when Apple is done brainwashing the simple members of society who forget that the word "MP3 player" exists, I may give one a shot.
i had a Creative mp3 player....mujo slim or something like that...really small capacity but i loved it...sounded good and charged through usb to my computer. unfortunatly i dropped it in a glass of water one night and didn't notice untill the next morning. 8-10 hours being completely submerged in water killed it...oh well.
^How unlucky lol.
I have tested and owend most of all the iPods and they have all been disappointing in the sound quality department. I own a Samsung YH-J70 and even the earphones that came with it was far superior to apples. I use it with a Sennheiser CX300 and it sounds AMAZING compared to it with a iPod.
We all like what we like, mate. Sometimes it comes down to personal preference.
The conference is in progress...
The Keynote Address is already over. No new iPods (though they did announce new Intel chipset based Xserves and Mac Pro desktop machines).
Either you're on Crack or you're just a hater.
Either way I don't care.
I've been an audiophile for thep ast 5 years thanks to Apple. and I HATE apple.
I hate Macintosh. I honestly hate all they stand for. But the iPod in itself is a great pioneering product thanks to it's heavy duty amount of locked memory. Internal HD and all.
The sound quality is superior to all devices out there.....
Why do you think BOSE supports them so readily?
Anyway. Like Jag said to each his own, but don't hate on it just hate on it.
Thats where I stop reading.
Damn you APPLE!
I'm surprised you were even able to start.
Welcome to the Hype.
Thanks for the welcome but dude I have been here for a long time I just did/do not have much time to post a lot.
I'm Welcoming you because you're not a senior over me in regards to length of time spent at the hype. I know you're not "new". I was here when you first joined.
It was a joke really =/.
But anyhoots the Sound Quality doesn't deplete from Media to Media, which is why I said what I said.
Conversion rapes quality, we all know this, so when it does some AAC conversions things get muddled...just a tad.
I know theh ead phones aren't the best, but the out put of the machine itself? Come now =/
Wait. Are you implying some people actually convert an already compressed file to AAC? That's ******ed.
MP3 plays just fine on the ipod. All my AAC files are taken straight from the CD.
iTunes is able to d conversions once it finds a file type that takes excessive space on the iPod's HD. I'm not saying people do such a thing as make a compressed file bigger...
But I am saying that when iTunes converts a file to a compressed storage size..things -can- get muddled.
Okay... Now it's coming!
Well, whatever, I need an iPod.
I'll probably buy one during Christmas.
i bought my video ipod in April.. no complaints.
i think IPODS are going to take over the world...they need to be stopped now, while they still can.
