HEY!<br>How have you been!<br>Haven't seen you here in a while, Zach.<br><br>As a matter of fact, that's what I started using.<br>I just wanted to make sure before I started resampling hundreds of songs.<br>I love everything about my new Touch (my first iPod), except the headphones...<br><br>Any recommendations on that?<br>I'm waiting on Apples new headphones, but I'm going to wait on the reviews.<br><br>Thanks for the confirmation.<br><br>And if my thought-dreams could be seen<br>They'd probably put my head in a guillotine<br>But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only.
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
