Did this video help you?

Needle: I would like to ask if I should lower down or max out my iPod volume if it is connected to an external portable AMP.

I have an iPod 7th Gen, FiiO L9 LOD and FiiO A3.

Bryan Ptacek: Would this rig sound good in your car?

asciilogic: Great setup. I have a similar setup. Thanks for sharing.

JMaldonado64: You calling an iPod "audiophile"?? Give me a break. The only way for you to hear true audiophile quality in a portable device is to use a USB DAC such as the Apogee Groove or Audioquest Dragonfly. Anything less than that is mediocre.

3than: So i have an ipod nano 7g i traded a 1g up for (they explode, look it up), and i also have a soundblaster e1 with my m50x's. I'm currently using the aux cable to amp, and I heard there's a dac in the adapter to 30pin. should i trade for a 5g and amp it or does it matter? I'd be perfectly fine with using one.

Jacky Le: Ipod had poor DAC can not use as hi-end music player

Anderson C: Where did you d/l the lossless music from? Are you using also a "lossless music program" version of iTunes app?

I have your iPod Video. :) Never tossed it or lost it. Never broke after having dropped it a few times. Didn't know it had a good DAC.

Garry Hyare: Why don't you get a digital audio player your not getting taking full advantage of your high res headphones and dac.. Your better of getting a dap and stacking with a dac if you want you don't hv to since daps already come with a built in dac it also depends what file/format your music is. Is it mp3/AAC or flac I would advise you too get a digital audio player regardless..

DrunkMouse2030: hey op what do u think about the shure215-cl with the ipod video 5.5 gen? I went a little ocd after seeing your video and bought 2 ipod video 5th gen from ebay. 1 is a 5th gen and the other is enhanced. I have been playing lossless, and aiff files through them and using IEM M6pro by Mee electronics. I keep getting a static noise from both headphone jacks when the ipod is on and they dont sound as good as I feel like they can. I just placed an order for the Shure215-CL in hopes of achieving audio quality bliss, HELP ME

Gerald Morrow: I have another addition to great sub $50 headphones.  I promise that I am just headphone enthusiast.  I am very impressed with BKHC studio Pro over the ear cans.  These are made in Brooklyn.  Match these with a decent headphone output and you will be pleasantly surprised.  Match these with these with a good headphone amp and Wow.

davveist: The iPod does not play hi-res flac so HOW THE F can you call it audiophile?! Amateur. 

Dominic Lallande: Where do you get your Apple Lossless files?

Baz Jed: The lod cable bypasses the internal amp of the ipod.
So, you are listening via the dac of the ipod, through the amp.

atlantargh: Very clear explanations; I'm glad you pointed out the fact the gen 5 ipod has the better Wolfson DAC. Thanks for posting.

Jagdip Singh: Ipod classic 5th gen is one of the best music players around, it has wolfson dac, that thing can turn my note 4 and ipone 6 in to dust. put toghter with the fiio e17 a2. its a great audiophile player

Derrick Davis: You carry around $2000 headphones??? Lmao...NEVER would I EVER do that... I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770's that im afraid to take with me to school... So I carry my Sennheiser hd 280's instead....

cm2881: Good video, now it's time to upgrade the iPod with mSATA technology, right now you can go up to 1TB.

Gary Overload: Why not get a Fiio X5? Apple's lossless is the worst of the lossless formats.
