Enhance your MP3s with DFX

I just found a way to energize the MP3s on an iPod. I copied all of my iPod songs onto my hard drive and re-encoded the files with the DFX Audio Enhancement plugin at 192kbps. Now I can hear every detail in the music on my iPod. It makes even my MX400 Sennheiser in-ear headphones sound amazing. Tracks without the DFX plugin sound dull and boring. I also tried the Slic Sound add-on earpieces and they make my MX400s have an almost audiophile quality.

Editor’s Note:  The DFX plugin is not available for iTunes, but supports most popular music management software on Windows like Musicmatch, Media Jukebox, WinAmp and more. DFX 6 is a free download with limited features, and DFX Enhanced is on sale for $19.99.

I thought so too (10G was enough that is), then I finished college (last week) and now I have all this time on my hands.. so I listen to music and go fishing. Well now I’m about to run out of space on my 15G. But I love this thing (I wish the battery lasted longer).

Ill probably just go with the 10gb seeing as I need money and all. I also saw a case for 20 bucks so that’s not a problem. Space really isnt an issue with me. If I have to Ill delete something, I had to do that all the time with my cd case. things going in and out. Believe me theres a few cd’s that I really never needed.

Is there a way to get the DFX enhancement with I rip the MP3 files from the CD, so I don’t have to go through the conversion process?

Could we move this topic to the forum?
