    iHP vs iPod sound quality

    I've just started using my iHP-120, which I bought by selling my iPod (20gb 3g) and to start with I was a bit "" - not sure if I'd done the right thing - build quality and interface seemed a bit off. But then, I turned up the volume, stuck on an EQ setting, plugged in my E2s...kawow...

    I've started exploring Winamp now I'm moving away from iTunes, and it looks like a pretty damn sweet package all in all (less memory-heavy than iTunes and WMP, and just found internet TV streams! niice). What I'd like to know is, is it's CD ripping any good, particularly compared with iTunes...

    iHP-120 USB 1?

    I'm hoping to get a iHP-120 in the next few days. At the moment I've only got USB 1 on my computer, and money is pretty tight (only got the exact right amount for the iHP), so not keen to get a USB 2 card straight away unless it's totally neccessary. How much slower in practical terms is USB...

    Reading around, I'm growing less satisfied with my's very good in itself, iTunes is a great jukebox IMO...but I just feel like it's not as great as it could be - it's not been the music-listening experience revelation I, for some reason, expected...perhaps I've got a short attention...

    Shure E2s...itchy and dry inner ears?

    The insides of my ears..not past the opening of the canal, just the "pit" i guess, have started itching these last few days, and they're pretty dry, like there is no wax at all. I'm not using the phones particularly excessively, maybe 2 hours a day if that. But I've started using the biggest...

    iPod capacity

    Apple states its capacity as 2,500, 5,000 and 10,000 songs for the new model iPod. However, I can't figure out what encoding this is based on. I am ripping my cds into AAC 224, what sort of volume of songs will this result in for the 20GB model? P

    Expert advice needed, please help

    Well, having had pretty much "we don't know" back from Toshiba UK about the Gigabeat G-20, and still not being able to get over the bulk and weight of the Zen NX and the price and looks of the iHP-120, I've taken a rather drastic decision. I'm going to re-rip all of my cds into MP3 or AAC and...
