3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not great, 19 Mar. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple iPod touch 32GB - Black - 4th Generation (Launched Sept 2010) (Electronics)
I bought this as an upgrade to an older 16gb model due to the need for more space. Thankfully the greater capacity has enabled me to use the various features far more. I'm now able to put more films, more music, more games and more useful apps on there meaning it gets used more and more. The new retina display makes watching videos, as well as general use, a delight to behold. With the latest processor and internals, the player is wonderfully smooth with no discernable lag.

My reason for the lower star review is that, unfortunately, to my ears, the audio quality is not as good on this model. The difference is only slight but to me it's noticable. The treble seems a little harsh and the bass has a bit too much punch, which when combined, lead to my ears feeling fatigued after an extended period of listening. I've tried a different set of (more expensive) headphones and, whilst a slight improvement, I still feel the problem lies within the player, rather than the headphones. This is backed up by the fact that when using my cheaper 'every day' headphones on my both my cheap 'disposable' mp3 player that I use for running, and my Samsung mobile phone, they sound absolutely fine. If Apple included a user controlled equaliser I'd be a little happier but as it stands I don't like their preset ones.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good player, and I know everyone's hearing is different so they may not experience these problems, I just feel that, as it extends its capabilities, it's spreading its talents a little bit more thinly and forgetting that, when it all boils down, it's a music player at heart.
