Hi, guys. I upgraded to the newest ipod software for my 4gen 20G ipod.

I did notice a stronger bass. LOL. I hope this is not because I magically got a good seal on my shure e4c after the upgrading of the software.

What do you guys think?

hmm... my 2Gen 10GB iPod have been running version 1.5 for quite a while now, i didn't notice a bass gain when i updated it and still don't. my Shuffle still has an edge to bass response in comparison.

as much as i love my Shuffle, and full bodied bass, i still can't stand the slight hiss/floor noise. and that's been running on version 1.1 for a long time too.

Ok, software updated. Unfortunately, I do not notice a change in bass. I could be wrong, but i doubt it.

Before updating, I plugged my e4c's in unamped and un-eq'd and listened to 2 familiar songs about 5 times in a row each. Now afterward, sound the same. Oh well, maybe next time (along with a custom eq).

I do have podcaster now, though. I guess I'll have to find out what that is.

edit: I do have the ipod photo, so I don't know if that could be different than the regular 4g ipods.

Ya know, somehow I tend to doubt that a firmware upgrade is gonna have anything to do with bass response. If it did, they'd be shouting it from the rooftops, not quietly slipping it in there whilst talking about "podcasting". I usually get all updates, even if I consider whatever improvements somewhat 'fringe' in nature.

I'll probably skip this one as not even being worth the download time. 'Podcasting'? Hell, I have an iPod so I DON'T have to listen to radio.
