    I've read that with line-out the volume is taken out of the equation, so I wasn't sure if the same would be true of any type of EQ or not.
  2. ExpatinJapan
    I`ll download the apps today and try them on the wifes iphone 3G with line-out, for a test.
  3. ExpatinJapan
    I tried it with an iphone 3G and line-out/LOD it worked.
    Only tried Equalizer App though, (EQu doesn`t work with 3G iphone).

    Do these EQ apps work with streaming audio apps such as Pandora or just your ipod library?
  5. Inks
    Just your library.
  6. ExpatinJapan
    Well I pulled the trigger and bought an ipod Touch 4G, thank you for all your help (and enabling),LOL.
    I have both EQu and equalizer apps, and an assortment of camera/photo tweaking apps etc.
    So far enjoying it, and the equalizer certainly makes it a different machine altogether.
    I will post more soon after I have spent more time with it.

    I haven't been that impressed with EQu.  On my 3Gs it mostly causes the tracks to skip, which I am sure is partly to blame on the older hardware- but still if you are buying an app to improve sound and it skips, what is the point.  Works better on my iPad, but overall I think I just like the sound better - out of both, untouched.
    I may use EQu in the car to get a more car-speaker friendly sound.

    Congrats on your decision, they are a lot of fun to play around with!

    The Touch is a such a versatile player that's comparable in sound to a J3/SFlo2, Pandora and all the other apps make it a lot more fun to use than those players though.

    Nice - Expat!
    Interested to hear your impressions using a LOD and amp as well - especially if there is a lot of difference to your ears?
    I've never used an amp before - and unfortunately (with young family) don't have a high budget.  Planning to get a Fiio E7 and LOD in about 6 weeks when I am in the US next.  Seems like a good entry point - and the plus will be having the DAC function for my netbook and desktop as well.
    I know (from reading here) that I don't really need an amp either for my current Shure SE420's or my soon to be purchased SRH 840's  - but it will be interesting to see what difference there is.
    Enjoy your Touch though - I was quite skeptical at first (coming from a Cowon) - but I'm really enjoying mine now.
  12. ExpatinJapan
    yeah I bought it and later had dinner with a few friends, tried out a few Cowon player X7 (I think) and D3. I didn`t have any regrets.
    Also tried some Grados and other headphones.
    I found I could just add playlists instead of individual songs whilst playing, I had no skipping last night.
    Using the EQ apps really opened up the ipod as a player, it really does seem as though they are wasting their technology by no having an official Apple adjustable EQ.
    I really think after using my wife`s 3G iphone and yesterday my ipod touch 4G that these apps are really designed for the latest ipods/iphones to work optimally.
    Not sure if I will use my LOD/AMP with it yet, If I bump it - it pauses the song, the connector pins are fairly sensitive.
    I`ll experiment more today.
  13. ExpatinJapan
    Well it`s been over a week, very happy with my purchase.
    ipod touch 4G> LOD> ibassoT3 (gain 1 on)> ATH-ESW9/UF-10.
    I am using EQu app more, it just seems easier and i can notice my tweaks more. 
    I am hoping Equalizer app comes out with another update.
    The camera: as is known it has low pixels, but does take great cool pics with the Hipstamatic app in bright light ( a retro polaroid style photo).
    I haven`t done a comparison with my 5G ipod Video yet, but yeah loving the touch.
    Also I can watch AVI videos using another app (divx player) which is a plus.
    I am finding itunes very easy to use as well.
    *The first few days I had low battery life, but read on the internet to do a restore on itunes, then set up as a new device not using a backup. and yes, good battery life now.
    *Also read about airplane mode and turning off spotlight, and notifications etc for a longer battery life.
