Backstage: Early iPod 4G review comments

If anyone has ANY problems with Apple’s EQ settings distorting the music there is a simple answer… download MP3Gain and set everything to a 89db level.

Then, adjust the volume higher in iTunes.

You can then use pretty much all of the EQ settings without distortion.

It works for me so if it doesn’t work for you, you’re doing something wrong.

Admittedly, you shouldn’t have to do this but it’s a solution and it’s free.

I Agree Matt, I got my iPod in January, but I wouldnt trade it either. The 3rd G’s look classier.

Easy of use on gadgets? Do you really need to go to school just to learn how to operate a MP3 player. Even dumbass could use one without reading the manual. All of MP3 players arent complicated as using a computer. THEY ARE ALL EASY TO USE. Even retarded could use it,

Does anybody know if iTalk works with the 4G? The saleperson at the Apple store told me on Wednesday that it would, so I bought one with my new 4G. But I decided to contact Griffin, and they told me they hadn’t tested it yet, so I’m not sure I want to open the box… Anybody tried it?

What anoys me is how apple just magically get a better battery in the 4G, I have a 3G only a few months old. I now feel kinda mad that apple have brought out a 4G with better battery life.

However I wouldnt change my 3G for the world! It looks nicer than the 4G, I’m not a fan of the all-in-one navi scroll wheel.

Is it possible to browse by Year on the 4G iPod ?  This isn’t possible on the 3G that I have it, but I for one would like to see it…

The Music menu is the same as the 3G Browse menu; it’s just been renamed. By changing the main menu settings you can put Playlists back on the main menu; in fact you can make the menu look just like a 3G iPod except that the first two items will be Music and Playlists, instead of Playlists & Browse.

The main menu customization options are almost identical to the 3G. I don’t see a way to put an individual playlist on the main menu.

Backstage: Early iPod 4G review comments

In the review, would you be able to explain how the new interface works? I’m a little confused by the fact that the top tab says “Music” and there isn’t a “Playlists” tab anymore. Is the Playlists tab nestled inside Music? If so, it seems a little pointless - it just means another click if I want to get to my recently played tunes. Can anyone explain?

Also, to what extent is it customisable? Can you select to have a certain playlist available on the main screen, or is it the same as in the 3G OS?

Backstage Opinion: Is the Click Wheel right for you?

No, I’m pretty sure the buttons ARE lit…I’m almost positive. :)

Slightly OT:

Lancer:  I am hearing impaired as well, and I feel your pain. 

Having gone through half my life half-deaf in a hearing world, I know how frustrating it is to not be able to use products that everyone else uses in the manner that they do.

Case in point: I had to get a loop system after my apartment neighbors complained the TV was too loud.  They apparently have overly sensitve hearing.  What a coincidence, huh?

Anyway, regarding the iPod situation:  I’m no electronics expert, but could there possibly be a way to put a volume control on the earphones themself?  I know they have headphones with volume controls on them; what if you could put a separate control on each side? 

I recently read that Jobs himself is partly deaf; this is why the iPod is louder than most MP3 players.  Perhaps you should write apple and explain the situation, and ask others to do the same….It’s worth a shot…

Please review the sound quality of the 4G iPod vs. the 3G iPod.  While looks and functionality are interesting, in the end, I only really care about the sound it produces.  I’m mostly interested in 320kbps AAC or uncompressed files.

Looking forward to the review!

Just got My 4G Ipod today, Funny story how I bought a 3G 20GB Ipod Last Monday and this morning when I get up to check something on Apple.com, What do I see 4G Ipod, So I called the apple store where I got the 3G and I asked then if I could exchange, and they told me to Come in, I went in and they exchanged it for a 40GB 4G for Free, they didnt charge me the 39.95 Open box fee, they were Great. The 4G Is great, Just that the 3G looked better, looked cleaner but I can get used to it and I could use the extra space now ;0)

Lancer,
A class-action lawsuit would be slightly overreacting, don’t you think?  They’ve left out a simple feature.  Don’t fit the American stereotype by suing.

Jeremy, do you have any ideas why Apple refuses to include volume balance control on these expensive mp3 players? Not everyone has 100% perfect hearing on both ears. My right ear is not as good as my left ear and I really WANT balance adjustments to balances out the sound for my hearing. Why won’t they include that feature in such an expensive player? It’s not even that hard to do.

I’m seriously thinking of getting a class action lawsuit going for discrimination against the hearing impaired.

Backstage: iPods taking slow boat from China

Well this is making me nervous. It’s July 22 5pm PDT and my order still says OPEN. It is because of the engraving that’s taking so long?

Jeremy, any updates on your FEDEX routing details?

So Juan, how do you upgrade your iPod?  I did not quite understand your post.

3rd gen dock works connects and charges… its a little wobbly, they have added material to the back of the slot on the new one due to the new ipods bein smaller.

usb connects but I am not sure if it charges, I think it does.  my battery is full, but when it is connected with usb (I connected it to a pismo powerbook… not usb2..) it shows a little lightning bolt next to the battery. indicating a charge.

new headphones cables are about an inch longer than 3g headphones, the remote control works fine on the 4g ipod.

cant test/ compare 3g to 4g… my 3g was stolen just after I got it, have all the accessories, but not the ipod..

One thing I hated about the 1st-3rd Generation iPod, is the amount of Bass, bass-booster doesn’t digitally enhance bass levels, it distorts it, try using Sony’s In-Ear phones with them if you wanna know what I’m talking about, then after that, try using the same headphones on a Sony Walkman with their Mega-Bass option and you’ll see why the iPod sucks on the bass-side of things.

If there is anyone who owns both the 3rd and 4th Generation iPods, can you please tell me if the sound quality has improved, to test this out, use the Sony In-Ear headphones.

That’s great for you, but what do the rest of us do? Anyone know of new cases which will accommodate the 4G?

Juan - Yes, you’re right, it’s been fixed, and thanks. Lack of sleep recently.

Oops, commented on the wrong article. That first bit was re: slow boat from China.

At least yours is slated to get to you this week. Both our iPods seem to have taken the same flight from China. Mine, however, isn’t expected till Monday. Clever FedEx has routed my packaged from Alaska to Oregon by way of Indiana.

Jude: I’ll be using the case Apple added to my order, which is nice because otherwise I’d have ended up using a paper bag or something :)
