Is the "sound" of iPod Touch different from the classic iPod's? - Page 2

The new Shuffle will play songs, playlists and podcasts.  It has a voice control which tells you what's playing and what's on the shuffle.  It takes some dedicated memory though.

How does the new Shuffle compare with the original. Every 1G shuffle I had sounded great, but they all broke, The 2G the OH has doesn't sound anything like as good.

I think the latest shuffle is almost on par with the 1st gen shuffle.  It's been a long time since I had mine so it's hard to remember specifics.  But just for music straight up, I'd take this new shuffle over my ipod touch any day of the week.  It should be noted though that it's not a sterile sounding player.  It leans towards warm with a good amount of bass.  Honestly, thinking of any of my current players that are set to flat or EQ off I like this shuffle over all of them.  The closest to it would be my Fuze+.  But with all sound settings off, I prefer it over both of my current Walkman, my touch, my Clip+, and my gogear.

You can actually buy the 1st generation, new old stock Shuffle on E-bay now for about $30.00 usd. I was happy I was able to get 6 years of use from my last one. In California I had a pair of these really good sounding behind the head headphones which I would tape the Shuffle to so you had no cords when bike riding along the board walk. Just now they are coming out with behind the ear cordless headphone and Mp3 player behind the head devices. We should see one from Apple in a year or two.

The iPod Touch 4 does sound a bit worse than the iPhone 4 (Which fares better in output impedance, THD, IMD and Stereo Crosstalk). There's a small gap but it's there thus they do not sound identical.

I bought iPod Touch 4 64gb last night and I got the EQu I bought for my iPhone on it in a few seconds without having to pay for it again.

 

The sound quality of my iPod Touch 4 (with EQu) is BETTER than my iPhone 4 32gb with EQu. I was blown away by the upgrade in the SQ on my phone and now iPod Touch is even better. I'm on cloud nine now :)
