Looking into buying a new iPod, preferably the classic 7g because of the hard drive space.
I currently own an iPod nano 3rd generation, iPod shuffle 2nd generation (2008 model), iPhone 3GS, and an iPhone 5. I also previously owned an iPod video 2nd gen a while ago, but sold it because I prefer the sound on my 3GS. My preference of these models goes Iphone 5> ipod shuffle 2g> iphone 3gs> ipod nano 3rd gen.
i prefer the cirrus chips > the wolfson (on ipod models) because of the detail difference, means more to me than the warmth. (not the right thing to say here but true lol) also i find my nano 3g to be pretty distorting.
i listen to dubstep / electronica for the most part, a little hard rock, punk rock, heavy metal.
using all with fiio e17 and audio technica pro700mk2 / file format 320kbps, will be higher if i get more space, currently using up almost my whole 64gb iphone 5
main reason for getting a new ipod is that i bought a new iphone mostly for music but cannot use the LOD because of the lighting connector (what a hassle that is).
also, good replacement pads for pro700mk2? i was going to buy dt770 velour pads but heard they drastically reduce bass, to a ridiculous point. wouldnt call myself a basshead, but then again i did buy the pro700mk2 and that says a lot. still havent decided if i like them better than m50.
anyways whatever opinions you may have on the different ipod models would be great, cant seem to get a straight answer here on which models have the best sq but in my opinion the cirrus chips sound much better.
