These are my son’s ipod earphones, the legendary look that Apple have made. A musical zeitgeist.
I am scared I am not a fan of the ipod. It is fashion above material in my view, though there is no question it is a superbly produced piece of kit, and a pretty clever interface.
I want a music player to do just that – perform new music – and pretty well. I will not want it to make cellular phone phone calls, or perform games.
I favor my trusty iriver h140. It merchants 40 gigs of new music and has remarkable sound and playback configurations that a sound engineer would be additional than joyful with.
It has an open resource operating method that is frequently remaining improved by any selection of geeks close to the world, and not like Apple, these advancements are built to make the new music listening working experience improved, not to uncover improved approaches of receiving you to download music from itunes or get pointless applications.
What I like most about the iriver is that it is multi-codec, so if I want to perform a FLAC file or an OGG VORBIS file, I can and as these documents are much top-quality to mp3 I usually do.
I object to remaining advised by Apple that I can only perform the format that they want me to perform on an ipod, which is why I will not have just one.
I will not use the in ear form of earphone as in the image. I favor Grado SR60s. Sad to say I can’t justify investing above £100 on headphones, but the SR60s occur in less than this, and the bass sound excellent is equivalent to that of pro headphones.
They are produced by a smaller firm in Brooklyn NY, and I have to say that they look actually low-priced and plasticky, so if you stress about seeking great (which I will not) you will not likely want to dress in a pair. Having said that the sound excellent is beautiful – which after all, is the position.
