Is anyone else disgusted

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

About the sound signature of the iPod touch 4g? Too much bass and the mids sound grossly scooped. Great for listening to "black and yellow" but everything else like my rock or metal generally sounds too big... The old Rush records sound good because they're kinda thin and get beefed up but I mean come ON. These things sound worse overall than my nano video (the square one). And I know this should be in a different forum but I like to post here because I want "IEM" people's opinions...

Interesting choice of adjectives. Unfortunately, I don't know what "grossly scooped" or "kinda thin" or "beefed up" really mean. I expect it is also subjective. "Black and yellow"????? Taxi cab music?

I think it sounds pretty good, actually. And you can make it sound however you want if you buy either the Equalizer or EQu app....they're only $3 each, and well worth it.

Didn't know about the EQ apps! Thank you. and "grossly scooped" could mean anything but i said "grossly scooped mids" as in the mids were scooped out... it's a term mostly used between guitarists. Black and yellow as in the dumb hip hop song that's on the radio lately... Rap sounds decent is what I meant because the mids aren't all too important when listening to hip hop just the ear piercing highs and nice lows. If you don't know what I mean by saying a "thin" or "beefed up" sound I'm referring to if you listen say an old recording (the original recording) of limelight by rush vs the live track of limelight from the 2008 dvd... everything has more balls these days and some of my heavier music I listen to like Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive just sound very strange indeed on this new 4g iPod.

 

Anyone have any EQ curves written down for those apps that make everything much more accurate? Not a specific eq for certain styles of music... just something to bring it more accurately over all... can you make presets on these EQ apps?

Yes you can. At least on EQu you can.

Since you have EQu I will also ask... I saw that you can make many different eq curves... for each one you do it's represented by a green circle, how many of the circles can you have going at once? I will most likely want to eq very tediously
