I LOVE my macbook. It's beautiful, reminds me of my beloved pismo, yet has modern horsepower and speed. One area I'd like to see (hear, actually) is improvement in sound quality. I'm listening to some songs of varying sound quality (a few 128kbps, others at 1411kbps AIFF) through some high quality head phones: Koss Portapros. Regardless of the volume, the sound is "distant" and doesn't quite sound full or alive. It's like I'm listening to music from a great distance. I'm not quite sure what the problem is. I listen to mp3's all the time on my portable mp3 player through the same Koss headphones, and my music sounds GREAT. What can I do to improve sound quality? A headphone amp?
