I have been using an iPod classic 160gb for about a year, and figured that it is not suited for BA IEMs since its H/P out has 5 ohm output. That's why I consider buying a Clip+ as it is said to be better with BA IEMs because of its near linear H/P out(1ohm, if I'm not mistaken).
But now, the new iPod touch is said to have the H/P out with only 0.7 ohm output, so I'm wondering if the iPod touch 5 is now on par with(or better than) Sansa Clip+ when used with BA IEMs?
I know that impedance isn't everything. I just want to know that, in terms of sonic technicalities, which one is better(more transparent), the 5th gen iPod touch or Sansa clip+?
I have always wanted an iPod touch because of its plethora of functions to play with, but its the SQ area that has been bugging me.
If the iPod touch 5th gen has really improved, SQ wise, I'd jump on it as soon as I have the chance.
Any thoughts\opinions on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
