This is gonna be a long post, so be patient with me. Ok, so just recently i noticed that apple ipods are totally crap in terms of sound quality. I've been using my senn HD 598 and they dont sound as good on my iTouch. I thought it was from the headphone so i tried my ath-m50s and it was the same. There was some distortion in higher volumes (especially with the 598s) and the highs were bad overall. Its funny i didn't have this problem when i had a headphone that was made for apple products like the sol republic hd's. However, whenever i plug in both the m50s and the 598s into my laptop or occasionally my phone(Nexus 4), i notice a big improvement in sound quailty. REALLY BIG IMPROVEMENT. But my phone's storage is almost full and i cant carry my laptop around everywhere i go so i decided to get an mp3 player.
i was looking at some reviews on the cowon i10 and everyone says the SQ is superb. But the interface is bad. And since you guys are the experts here, should i get it? should i sacrifice the bad interface for the superb sound quality?
Note: SQ is the most important thing to me. i dont care if it looks ugly, i dont care if the build quality is not that good, i care about SQ.
if you guys would help me out i would really appreciate it.
sorry if the post is too long
