    Hi, I have iPod Touch 1st Gen and looking to upgrade to iPhone 4 when it comes out here in Canada.

    I was wondering if anyone knew for sure if iPhone 4 has the same audio quality as the 1st gen ipod touch, or do they have different audio processing chip(?) that produce higher quality audio?

    Thanks

    Well, iPhone 4 has speakers, and an iPod touch 1st gen doesn't. Sooo, I think the iPhone 4's sound quality is much better.

    in terms of what you hear over the earphones?

    Maybe it'll be more smooth or something due to better hardware / less overall lag but apart from that I see no reason why audio quality should change.

    I didn't notice it between my 1st gen and 3rd gen iPoT so I don't know why it should happen here.

    I have an 8GB 1st gen touch and the new 32GB iPhone 4. The only difference I hear is if you are using the EQ settings as they have improved in iOS4.

    If you use the same music with the same bitrate I think it will be the same quality. Won't be less for sure.

    My iphone 4 is miles better than my ipad or ipod touch 2g. I have some expensive headphones and without any EQ the difference is IMO huge. I listen to every type of music.

    generations 2-4 use the same chip, I believe the first had a different one but I'm not sure. you should check wikipedia-they have a listing for that.
