I am posting in this category only because my post doesn't seem to fit anywhere else. But here it is anyways. I am not someone who would start bashing a product without any particular reason, and wouldn't waste my time writing about it. That being said, am I the only one who thinks iPod Touch has a POS sound quality for what is supposedly a DAP? I know, most people just use it for anything but music but I occasionally like to listen to some tunes. Unfortunately, this is turning to be a friggin nightmare and I have to reside to my old and trusty iAudio X5 (which despite being 3 years old can make the sound of Sepultura run like honey in your ears, seriously, hats off to you Cowon). I am writing this just after one of my favorite Bjork songs got ripped to pieces by the sh*tty equalizer of my touch. Just to prove i am not someone with oversensitive ears ready to complain about the most minuscule differences, i have just tested the whole album with all of the equalizer settings. For all songs at least 70% of the settings gave noticeable sound distortions and downright screeching noises at 60% volume. Most of the time bass boost on any setting craps the sh*t out of my headphones and makes me want to eat my own ears. Same goes for treble, with the only difference that I want to feed my ears to Steve Jobs. I mean, Apple keeps on saying "Oh, you gotta pay for your apps because iPod Touch is noting but a music player with a browser, so these come extra.". But if this is the case then why the hell don't you first make sure that plays music well? (Yeah, if you make your music library agree with buggy iTunes, it will show nice pictures as well, great ... but a DAP is a player first, organizer second). I am really confused... None of the updates seem to do anything of value. Don't even start me on the multi-tab Safari bug that makes multi-tab browsing almost useless or at least highly annoying. What the hell are they doing? In conclusion, I respect the iPod Touch for what it isn't - an ultra portable gadget, but have no respect for what it is - a crappy music player with the sound quality of a horse fart. just my 100 yen. p.s. Bjork and Lisa Gerrard - you have been avenged.
