My 17 month old iPod mini suddenly has sound and volume problems. Podcasts must be turned up to the max to be heard. Audio books sound warbled and distorted. Songs with lyrics are really weird: the music plays at normal volume, while the words are barely audible. The only thing that plays correctly, with normal volume, is instrumental music such as Mozart.

Judging from the Apple discussion groups, many, many other people are having this problem. But none of us has found a fix.

Any help out there? Thanks!!

(This happened directly after I downloaded iTunes 7.3.2, then charged my Mini.)

Try changing the equaliser settings. Sounds like you have it on a bass setting.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. But it's definitely not the headphones or the EQ setting.
