    I have a 2g ipod touch and the headphone jack is broken. I can either get it fixed for 50 bucks or go for a 300 buck 5g. What I want to know is if there is an increase in audio quality between he generations. I use a pair of Sl 99s by Ludacris (100 buck headphones) if that helps at all.

    I actually upgraded from skullcandy titans to my current headphones about a year ago. I felt like the build quality, mids , highs, and the cable were all an improvement over my skullcandys. Went through a pair of titans within a couple of months when the cable stared to come loose from the audio jack part. I personally like the SL99 better, but that's just my opinion.

    dude, if you are looking into sound quality then Ipod touch is not a good choice. It is used mainly for games and video, that why the screen is so good. For music, its not worth $299. Go spend $79 on Walkman e series better.

    Nice use of Ronald Reagan's catch phrase.

    But I think Raccoonboy has a point there. The sound quality of iPod touch hasn't improved much over the generations IMO. All the other features were improved except the most cardinal one of a music player -sound quality.

    I had no idea he's expressed an opinion on audio.

    ----------

    What exactly is wrong with the audio? ISTR reading it measures better than most CD players.

    He doesn't like the new Touch in general (check his other post). To each their own opinion :D.

    People hate what they don't understand, I guess. He thinks the iPad Mini is a real competitor for the Touch, even after it's been pointed out that people who want a Touch are not interested in a huge tablet, appreciate the cheaper-per-GB price, etc, and that's what I was referring to. His opinions I've seen all seem to share a common attribute... :D

    Most (if not all) of his complaints stem from what Apple is charging for their products. He may have some valid complaints but it is sometimes perceived as a "Sour Apples" response (i.e. since he can not or will not get one due to the price, it must be a bad product).

    It's slightly better but not too significant.
