Nope, no idea about headphones. I've just been using the same ones. Most of my music is encoded in AAC 128 ...some in 160, but I think I'm going to start re-encoding in AAC 256 to match my iTunes Plus music. <br><br>Oh, and I'm doin fine ...just busy <br><br>zweisoft<br>
I really like my Sennheiser PX-100 headphones. They aren't earbuds, but they fold up small like a pair of glasses. They've been very durable and sound great--and I've heard from many other people that they are the best sound you'll find for their price ($40 or less).<br><br>For importing, I say 256 AAC. They take up twice as much space as 128, but with smart playlists you can keep your favorites on the iPod full-time, let the rest auto-cycle through your library, and in effect have access to ALL your music without space being that much of an issue.<br><br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
Well... AAC was still relatively new when I ripped all my music... and I haven't felt the need to go back and re-rip all that music. At 160 bit rate... I have 40+ gigs of music. Figure what that's going to be at 256. Lot's of space and a ton of time.<br><br>Aside from AAC... 160 seemed to be the sweet spot for me in the quality-of-sound vs. space-on-HD discussions that were going on back then.<br><br>[image][/image]
Most of mine's not 256AAC either, and I'm not re-ripping it. But for FUTURE imports that's what I'll use.<br><br>My ears can't detect anything wrong with 128... it's just the IDEA of less compression that I like <br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
