    Debating selling my pristine 64gb iPod Touch 4th Gen for the newest Nano... but am I just wasting my time?

    Only reason really is that I want a smaller player for running/walking and I've been transitioning all my stuff to Lightning as well. I do prefer some of the music playing features on the Nano like being able to have songs fade into each other. Also I like that it has the vol and play buttons on the side.

    What do the rest of you think?

    I actually just purchased a brand new 64 ipod touch 5th Gen. I was torn between the 5th Gen and 7th Gen Nano. I have a 6th Gen nano and love it but it's not enough space. That's why I went with the 5th gen ipod touch all my music is more than 16 gig plus my audio books. I guess it depends on what you really want to use it for. I'd keep the ipod touch personally.

    Yeah you're right, thanks. The higher capacity and the fact that it just does "more" makes me want to keep it... and I think if I sold it I'd probably only get about as much as a 16gb 7th gen Nano would cost... if even that.

    So ipod touch doesnt allow songs to fade into each other?Thats actually a deal breaker for me since I love this feature on my 7GNano.Any other Apple products allow this fade in setting.I was just about to buy a 64G Touch but not if I cant fade in music.

    I think your getting more with the iPod touch you have already... I love my iPod touch 4 and my iPod nano 7... I think the 7 I'd a better music player and it is better for running and exercising but it only has 16GB and that may not be enough or you...

    Yeah, I've always wondered why it doesn't have that feature. I had a 6th Gen Nano for a while and loved using that feature too. But the touch screen crapped out on it and I traded it into GeekSquad insurance.

    I surprisingly don't keep that much music on me. I have a lot. But I get sick of songs very quickly.

    I missed that too, but there are crossfading apps in the app store. I have one, works very well on my 64GB iPod Touch 4G.

    wow, new info for me. U can fade music in ipod nano 7?
    What is the sound quality, although i know ipod is not known for producing great sound, they are just convenience if u have all your music on itune. Can you use the physical button to double tap changing songs?

    I think ipad classic is a better choice if u want capacity but i doubt it be good for running, might drop it.

    I find Nano 7G has great sound quality out of the included Earpods.I get crap on here for this a lot but if you burn the pods in for 50 hours and put some foam covers on them they sound amazing.Best soundstage ever on an on ear phone.

    Which crossfading App do you recommend?Any free one that works?All I want to do is have song start as last song fades out like on Ipod Nano 7G.

    This is the one that I use: My DJ Crossfade Free (but displays ads)

    You can even limit how much of each song plays. eg. play the first 3 minutes of the song before cross-fading to the next. Control over the crossfade interval.

    I have a special playlist sorted by BPM and use this at parties. It is surprisingly good.

    I have an old 60gb Classic as well. I don't actually care to carry that much music on me actually. I also use Google Music which has all my songs on the cloud if I REALLY need to pull a song off of there and download it onto my phone.

    ----------

    Thanks so much for that suggestion! I just downloaded it for my iPhone 5S, it's really ugly since it's formatted for the smaller iPhone 4/iPod Touch 4 screen, but it works great! I'll be putting it on my iPod Touch when I get home. Thanks again!

    Best soundstage ever on an earphone? What have you been comparing them with?

    I find nothing I've tried has better soundstage than my XBA-H1s, and those are budget, really. Spend 4 or 5 times as much and it's a different world.

    Then, more expensive than the Sonys but also with great soundstage, are the IE60s
