0s4x: Where can I get that 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter?
westevildead: Great video!!!!
I broke my iPod 5th gen now I'm stuck with the iPod Classic, could convince
myself to buy iPod touch or iPhone. I just want to hear my music.
My set is the iPod Classic with a iBasso D2+ Boa and Shure's SRH840 for
Mike Hobbins: Just bought a pair of audio technica ath m50's and i want to know what
would be the best amplifier to listen to music off my galaxy s3?
davina pond: I have the 160GB iPod classic 7th generation and I heard that the DAC on it
is a high quality. how do you get new CD's when they don't sell them
anymore. downloading CD's are a low quality compression. I try to find my
CD downloads at the best compression I can find usually 320kbs. what are
your thoughts or anyone else's. thanks.
Plastic: why no rockbox?
ragnell saria: IPod can reproduce alac files Wich is a lossless music the same as flac and
u can also rockboxed the ipod so its going to reproduceflac
viceadmiraal61: have the same headphone...the best in bass.
Shane Dennis: How do you get lossless files?
Ian Newman: I recommend you consider the RWA Imod for your IPod
Mark Abindan: Yes its expensive. But if your heart is willing to hear good sound quality
what is 500$ its just nothing.
h2soccergod: Audiophile and ipod do not go together. They don't even play flac files.
kookieless: 1/8th inch errr it's 3.5mm!
edalarconreal: Thanks, great video. Could you please post the link for the Meir amp. I did
not find it! Tx
AOS AIRSOFT: What ear buds do you use?
LaLiebre408: why do you look like the unabomber in your profile pic?
Revomad1: I admit. It would be nice if I didn't have to convert FLAC downloads to
ALAC. I will probably go with an Android phone next. The Fiio X3 is an
awesome portable player also. (See my other comment)
Revomad1: I also recently purchased a Fiio X3, which supports up to 24 bit 192khz
Flac, ALAC or Wave files. It has a Wolfson DAC chip and built-in headphone
amp with high and low gain settings. It's amazing for $200! It only has 8gb
internal storage, but it also has a micro SD slot, so you can keep your
entire music collection on those and swap them out if you have more than 1.
Damon Adrian: ALAC sucks. if only apple poducts supported FLAC i would have bought an
iphone. but i went with xperia
Revomad1: You can purchase a 240gb hard drive that will work in the 5th gen and 7th
gen ipods. I bought one for $100 on ebay and installed it in my 7th gen
160gb classic. Maybe you are aware of this, but the ipod can support 24bit
ALAC files with a sample rate of up to 48khz. 24 bit music sounds AMAZING
if it produced correctly (not to DR compression). I convert 24/96 downloads
to 24/48 ALAC files using dBpoweramp converter with the resample DSP.
TheJullim: i have heard substantial differences overall, EVEN through my iPod, some
people can hear the differences and some can't , some have the ears and
some don't, good gear helps also with noticing changes, also it's the
density, depth, and framing rates that change, your not going to hear,
"more bass" or heavier "mids", mostly in resolution, and density, sure they
sound the similar due to identical properties, but i would never go as far
as saying "they sound the EXACT same" or are "IDENTICAL"
icemannooim: I would love to see your proof for that statement. I can only assume you
mean lossless audio are not the same as the original analogue audio, since
you bring bit depth and bit rate into it, but lossless audio is lossless
when compare to its digital origin for example a CD.
Brou Haha: It loses nothing. Lossless is lossless and this is proven fact.
icemannooim: There is no proof, just opinion, that a compressed lossless file sounds any
different from their uncompressed counterpart at identical bit depth and
rate. Most audiophiles claim compressed files make music sound compressed
but they have no idea how digital audio actually works.
Juan Sebastian Amador Bjarner: It is.
TheJullim: my mistake they're is no noticeable differences in lossless to lossless,
but format to format like flac/alac vs aiff/wav i disagree and do hear
differences as i said before "aifff/wav is has a better kbs rating than
flac/alac, and flac/alc has a better kbs rating than apple lossless"
nb347: Do you recommend the ipod over the nationite s flo2?
TheJullim: your basically saying Mp3's sound as good and are exactly the same as aiff
or apple lossless, since you say they are the EXACT same, the KEY is that
higher kbs, higher framing rate, higher bit rate it's going to sound more
dense overall, depends on what your comparing, YES the diffences are not
HUGE but are still their , i can INSTANTLY detect a 300kbs or 256kbs since
I'm used to much better formats
DJARACHN1D: The iPod classic is already a large "brick", why add an even bigger
appliance to it? You can't fit that in your pocket without it looking
TheJullim: no, lossless mean nothing is lost PERIOD which is finite, near impossible
Mrperry386: what are the higher quality Itunes files you were talking about? I would
really like to know how to get them.
Brou Haha: it sounds like you're not even an amateur audiophile. proper mastering
makes far more of a difference in sound quality than bitrate, bit depth or
sampling frequency. that's why one can go buy a dvd-a that sounds like crap
yet a properly mastered CD can sound much better. if you can hear a
difference in sound quality between aiff/wav and flac/alac, then there is
something wrong with your equipment or you're just a billy bullcrapter.
Brou Haha: Just making sure... I switch between a pair of Sennheiser HD650 and some
old 70s Pioneer SE 305's.
MIRTRUDMAY: LoL Audiophile
Jon Yeung: you sure the cowon is better than ipod?
MihaZ: When I plug the line out adapter, my iPod classic amp is still active... Is
it that the cable isn't compatible, or am I doing something wrong? I'm
using iPod classic 160gb and a PICO amp. Thanks!
ghoti41628: Why do all "audiophiles" seem like they have such big egos...just my
opinion =O Guys you know there's this site called head-fi right...anything
audio-related and it will be there.
Juan Sebastian Amador Bjarner: Do you prefer the L9 or the one you are using here?
Brou Haha: Lossless is lossless. If you take a WAV file, compress it into ALAC or
FLAC, and then turn it back into a WAV file, it's exactly the same size.
ALAC decodes a little slower but Apple designed it that way as not to chew
up a lot of processing and battery power.
GoldenSausage: by that same logic ppl who tune their cars dont like cars at all
SmexMuffins: Oh arent those headphones 2000 usd?
Jon Yeung: as far as daps go, i was always an ipod guy. i changed from ipod shuffle
2nd gen (now broken) which was my first dap, to ipod nano 6th gen (gave to
my mom) and then to ipod classic 7th gen lining out to fiio e17. i recently
gave that combo to my brother and switched to my first non-ipod dap, ibasso
dx100. i think im set and done with daps for now (money now going towards
funding iems, headphones...) but thanks for the recommendation, maybe if i
have money later, i will look into those
oliver kapps: Salut,désolé de te contredire mais "ipod" ce n'a jamais (est ca ne sera
jamais!) "audiophile"!! ipod,ipad,iphone c'est du grand publique avec un
son de bien mauvaise qualité,meme avec un casque denon de qualité hifi
grand publique! Tu paye cher la marque a la pomme pour sa marque mais en
son ca vaut rien! Si tu veux audiophile tu achete lecteur mp3 bang et
olufsen et casque akg ,grado,B&W ,ou bang et oufsen et la tu auras un vrai
son audiophile! Ou alors toi et moi on a pas les memes oreilles...
Tom Rogers: I'd love to hear that Meier HP amp. I have the FiiO E-17 and I really like
the sound from it, but it's the only one I've heard worth mentioning. I do
know that it's well-worth the price.
Brou Haha: Doubt it. Unless it was an ABX comparison I call BS. Even people who do
this for a living cannot differentiate between lossless and uncompressed.
The reason is because there is no difference when they are played back.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°): should sennheiser ie80 use DAC?
Roch Sao: Apparently, you have no idea what you're talking about.
11yearoldscene: Some skullcandy's or any bass booster ear buds.
Brou Haha: I think it would be cool if Apple actually offered an iPod geared towards
audiophiles. I always thought it would be cool if Apple started selling
albums encoded in AAC 5.1 or AC3 5.1.
Rob Hernandez: Thank you for the info twoduncan. Best wishes
spikeman316: too much monkey business
