    Hi folks,

    I’m extremely enjoying my new ipod touch and just wanted to know people’s experiences on how they sound with earphones/headphones. Here’s my experience so far with my 2 earphones:

    Ultimate Ears superfi4
    - Good bass but sometimes gets boomy
    - Harsh highs and mids
    - Tiring to listen to for long periods
    - Better or “exciting” listen on my iphone4

    Sony XBA-1
    - Good details
    - Solid but understated bass
    - Soundstage is better than UEs4
    - Warm vocals
    - Dull listen on the iphone4 but seems to come alive on the ipod touch

    This is by no means scientific, just my experience in using them after a week or so. Have yet to test my Shures (earphone and a headphone) on the touch...happy to hear how it went for you...cheers!

    ps. i haven't tried the new earpods as comparison...

    It sounded warm on my sony which I like. I read somewhere it has a cirrus chip rather than a wolfson. My 5g ipod video (30gb) sounded better though. More detailed.
