bass reducer and it seems crazy as i use the apple stock headphones but i like my music loud but the bass makes the plastic squeek so i reduce the bass and its all good although the bass is still present
I'm not using any eq. But I might consider using one which makes al my songs sound better then they sound now. Just the problem that I got a large variety in my Libary, that it takes to much time to change the eq every time I'm listening to another genre.
Ive found that the 'Classical' setting is pretty much the same as 'Acoustic' - they both sound good as the bass is not distorted on the ipod headphones, my sennheisers, my home setup, and in my car too!! The midrange and the treble levels are good on those settings too.
The others sound horrible. Not relistic at all.
Is there a way to change these settings to your own setting by any chance?? I dont think there is but would be a fantastic addon to the ipod.
My headphones can handle a ton of bass, no problem. But, since iPods (and every other MP3 player) come with tiny, low-end amplifiers inside, many bass-boosting equalizer settings put to much into the amp, causing sound to clip. Therefore, I'm working on two solutions:
1)Build the CMoy external amplifier, so that I can use any EQ, turn the volume to like 5%, and amplify with a better external amp
2)I've requested on Apple's iPod feedback page that iTune EQ presets made by you can be used on iPods.
