IPod with crappy, annoying noises October 6, 2006

Posted by caveblogem in Other.

I have tried listening to my IPod recently and found it to be more trouble than it is worth.  I bought these really great headphones from Audio Technica so that I can really crank up the sound.  Unfortunately the sound quality on the IPod is really bad.  It is not just the fact that it is compressed for a small MP3 format.  The problem is that there are skips and halts and staticy things going on that make the songs simply offensive.  It is worst when I’m listening to something really smooth and sensuous, like anything by Fiona Apple, or that Getz and Gilberto album, or even the first album by The Cars.  The complexity and smoothness of the song will pull you in and then suddenly fire some static into your head at top volume.  I just can’t stand it.  Am I doing something wrong?
