So now the left channel for Ipod Touch will intermittently go out. This is the 2nd time, my 2nd Ipod.
I do not want to brick another ipod! ...I gave my mom the first one.... she only EVER listens to music in one ear.... she's paranoid and likes to hear her surroundings on the train :P. Doubt she needs a 2nd one..
Some people recommended I go the LOD route, something like the Fiio E1:
This will bypass the headphone jack... but also add about 1 meter of cable... making the whole ipod less portable. I'm using Ety HF2's , and Audiotechnica M50's, so I never really had the need for an amplifier.
I have searched, and really only found the E1 to fit the bill... other than getting the jack repaired... I don't even know where I would go to do that- I'm in Germany. And I don't speak German.
Do you guys know of any "smaller" LOD's that I can plug my headphones directly into? Will this make it so that I can't control the volume? If so... is the E1 my only option?
Or would you guys get it sent out to get repaired?
What would you guys do?
