iPods and stuff

Quote

I switched from a Creative Micro to Shuffle for convenience at the gym and have used it for everything now for a while but the sound quality is pretty crap and tinny. Can someone tell me how the iPod Nanos compare, in regards to sound, to the bigger devices on the market?

How does the iPod Nano compare to the bigger devices? Because I still want something very small but the shuffle is just sh*t sound quality.

Well nanos are good.  They used to be proper crap but they fixed them.  Very small, thin and light but the biggest memory one you can get is 4GB I think.  iPod videos are bigger but they can hold between 30BG and 80GB.

I'm just talking about sound quality though - I'm not really bothered about space as I tend to just listen to one album over and over and then move on to another when I get bored.

I would recommend a Creative Zen V Plus over an iPod nano.

The sound quality of the first generation Shuffles (aka. the Wrigleys Doublemint Version) used to be a lot better than that of the full scale Video models.  The first generation Nanos weren't as good as the Shuffles or the full scale Videos.  This has now turned full circle with the second generation Shuffles (aka. the Not Wrigleys Doublemint Version) having poorer sound quality than the rest of the line.

Basically, it depends on if you've got a pack of chewing gum or not.

The 2nd Gen shuffles just have no base, it's all tinny Frown

EDIT: Found out the tinny problem was due to faulty headphones but regardless, the iPod shuffle is still really crap for sound.

I'm guessing you've got a non-Doublemint Shuffle then.  A nano wouldn't be a bad thing to do.  I dunno if it's got better or worse sound quality than the Video, but seeing as we're talking exercise a Video should be out of the question.
