In comparison to my Zune and my D2 (with exact same files/formats/bit rates), it really pales in the sound quality department.
Any other Touch users here sort of regretting their purchase?
I might see if I can palm it off to someone else. Maybe my Dad might want it
I have the same problem with the SQ as Dublo7 has...
I explored many more forums and found the same problem within many Ipod Touch users.
The sound quality of iPod Touch is very-very bad. The cheap china's mp3 players has the SQ more better.
So, now I'm sure that not only my device has the "bad" SQ but all the Apple's iPod Touch devices downgraded in sound quality.
Maybe the cause is the cheap DAC from Cirrus Logic instead of old good from Wolfson Microelectronics...
Have somebody some idea about how to improve the SQ of iPod Touch?
