    its as good as any other iPod i have ever used...

    in fact it may be better because there is no HD.

    apparantly the very first firmware version had a slight problem. Its been cleared up for a loooooong time now. I personally think it sounds great now on 1.1.4, and they usually tweak this and that with the sound but it gets better with every release.:apple:

    I can most definitely hear hiss when no music is playing with my Etymotic er-6i headphones.

    There's no hissing on my iPod Touch. I even use the regular iPod headphones.
    I don't know where you heard that iPod Touches have a hissing noise.

    There can be hissing if you are using really sensitive headphones...like the etymotics. You won't hear any hissing out of the ibudz..because well..they are horrible.

    I use the Etymotic ER6i isolating earphones and the Sennheiser PX-100 headphones, and I have yet to hear hiss during quiet passages of music on my iPod Touch.

    Very light hiss here too. Only noticeable if/when I switch on/off the ipod though, and I'm not using any fancy headphones.

    Of the three iPods I have owned, the touch has the best sound quality. I've never heard a hiss, even when the iPod is played through amplified speakers.
