um... What all players by apple have years and compared? Because I know for a fact the 4G touch sounds a lot better on a flat EQ than the clip+ does.
Compared to that, the sound quality between my iPad and the old 4G Touch was very close and I love the sound of the new 6G Nano, more so thathe iPad.
So from my experiences, all three are better than the clip + in both driving power, sound quality, and durability/design.
The IEMs that I used with all players listed were the Shire SE535s.
