If I put in my headphones (AKG K450) in the headphone jacket, I hear a hiss in the background (with no music on and with music on) and the bass is very disorted if I use rockbox to set it higher (can't go further than +4db) and this is without equalizer on. If I use the default settings it doesn't sound good either. Maybe the headphone jack is broken, the headphones are underpowered or because the iPod is old the chip isn't working correctly anymore?
So I decided to plugin some old garbage earbuds, I didn't hear a hiss, but the sound quality was horrible (but that was because of the earbuds).
Does using an amp like the Fioo E6 fix this problem?
