    Forget the iPod. This made music sound 10 times better with just my crappy computer speakers. I wonder how this would sound on pricey sound system; probably amazing.

    I still tried it on the iPhone. Wow. That is all I can say. Couldn’t believe the difference, especially with Bass heavy songs.

      Make sure you are selecting them on your iPod, not your iTunes library.

    Holy Overamp’d Distortion Batman! Excessive Positive gain, on all frequencies no less, will not only cause irrevocable loss to frequency response, but also has a MUCH higher probability of frying the hell out of your voice coil, which will result in your loss of tonal knowledge & interest. Pops & hisses don’t sound good comin off digital recordings. …..and the Preamp gain should be REDUCED by the same amount that has been added to the frequency with the highest gain; in the case of “The Best of the Best”, this would mean -12db, as 8kHz has been pushed to +12db.

    …OR BETTER YET…get a new app that has a fully manipulative 10 band EQ; preferably one that can modify the bandwidth as well as the gain to any selected frequency…and being able to CHOOSE the exact frequency of each point on the EQ curve makes a massive difference too. So you can make your tunes sound the way YOU want.
    Personally, i’ve been using Capriccio Ultimate Player for about a year. Here’s why. 1. Free 2. 10 band EQ with bw/db adjustments 3. Slew of stream effects- e.g. Reverb/ Chorus/ ‘3D'(spatial)/ Pitchbend/ Tempo/ Etc…4. Slick interface, supports listening to an Audio stream from URL’s…i.e. Pandora/Soundcloud with your custom EQ/effects….freaking epic in its own right.5.Wireless FTP transfers-Wicked.6. EQ’s have a shareable index. meaning i can upload my EQ settings and you can download them to your iOS device. Nifty shite’…7. Lossless playback. Plays and sorts OGG, FLAC files in addition to literally any & every audio extension you can find. so no need to convert a damn thing. saves time. and your music, if you have a large (non-apple)lossless library.
    if anyone DOES check out Capriccio, hit the gear on main screen> sound effects> scroll down-Sharing Language>English Weekly Popular> H!Fi =[Fully Evolved]= by Audiophile^’tis my interpretation of spatially accurate & balanced frequency response. Almost universal, not only across musical genres, but regardless of speakers/headphones used.

      not to add to my novella, but one more thing…doing the whole ‘get info’ deal and selecting an EQ for multiple items will indeed index those songs and attach the EQ, but ONLY WITHIN that same program. and Itunes is NOT the same thing as the Music App on your pod/phone. If Music App EQ is OFF, then you have NO equalization of the audio stream. aka FLAT response. Don’t believe me? Trial and Error/Experimentation Time: go between OFF & FLAT in the Equalizer Presets and tell me what you hear differently. Nothing at freaking all. Same exact level of frequency response across the entire EQ curve. So your statement about the EQ setting staying is false. But benignly so. I’m sure it’s not as if you meant to give advice that was intended to take up user’s time for no practical nor pleasurable benefit whatsoever. Least it gave me something to read,laugh at, and pompously respond to. 🙂 cheers.

      p.s. Don’t give tech advice unless you’re dead sure you know what you’re recommending. Screwing with peoples phones, pods, and pads is the quickest way to piss someone off.

    Achieved largest sound quality upgrade with small headphone amp (from Fiios) – much more than any equalizer setting. The amp features a few equalizer presets plus flat to customize as you wish. Headphones on my commute never sounded better!
