    i just got my brand new itouch and absolutely love it... i am planning on using the internal speaker on it for listening to music when i travel in hotels and such and wanted to know if i turn the speaker volume up all the way while playing my music is it going to blow the internal speaker or will it be fine? i don't like the idea of taking portable speakers because i am quite content with the audio from the itouch speaker itself.

    please let me know if the internal itouch speaker can handle music at max volume. (also, i did not install any aftermarket software to boost the volume).

    thanks again,

    there is no chance of the speakers blowing, it is a consumer device so has to be safe. If there were problems with the speakers blowing, you would have heard about it

    I bought a 3rd gen iPod touch and find the speaker volume to be too low. Way lower than my 3GS.

    It has 3.1 I believe. Does 3.1.1 make it any better?

    Firstly, is there a chance? Sure.

    It depends on the gain that was used during recording.

    Then there is the argument that if you can't overdrive the speaker(s) then the amp is too weak for its intended application (although no one is going to be looking for audiophile sound out of the built-in speaker...or any current ipod for that matter...).

    So wait, on your 64 GB touch, does music sound distorted when cranked to max volume?

    Where the fresh snow don't go.
    I usually turn it 1 or 2 bars short of the max volume... Just sounds a lil better than having the music distorted
