Yet another Etymotic fan. I have the er-6i headphones and they are fantastic in pretty much every way.

Exclamation Re: Best headphones for iPod Touch

Well, if you search in YouTube Radius Atomic Bass Review click on one of the reviews and you will see that everybody says that they are very good or better than a LOT of earphones. They are about $40-$50. And for the quality of them they are practically a steal.

for me, i cant have a pair of headphone for longer that a month without them breaking. that stopped as soon as i got an iPod Touch. i love the standard iPod headphones, they are the best ones ive ever had

Also consider a portable amp and connecting the iPod to the amp using a dock connector cable.

Just a thought, but that won't be very portable.

A true audiophile probably wouldn't consider the Digital to Analog Convertor (DAC) in the iPod Touch to be up to snuff. That said, to get the most out of whichever phones you choose, make sure your audio files are in as high quality a format as you can get away with. Do not settle for 128 kps under any circumstances

I've used iPods of various stripes with my high end gear, including (in terms of portable headphones) the HD25-1 IIs and a pair of 400 customs. The Touch line do a decent enough job compared to other players of the same class of consumer-oriented players straight out of the headphone jack. Paired with an LOD and amp they do as good a job as some of the more budget-minded audiophile players like the Hisoundaudio range and the Hifiman HM601/602. There's certainly an audible difference when you compare iPods to really high end players like the Color fly C4, but with decent amping they can produce fantastic sound and even out of the jack produce decent sound if the head phone's aren't too power hungry. I personally prioritise components in the order of headphone>>amp>>file>>source when improving my different setups.

Your hierarchy makes good sense. I'll try to keep that in mind with my future purchases. I'm not an audiophile, or at least I can't afford to be one. I'm a musician/composer/music-lover with good ears, a small child, and a small budget; this often leads to dissatisfaction with what I'm hearing.
