    I have a hard time picking which preset I prefer the most. I think I like Rock, or Jazz the best.

    What's everyone's thoughts/preferences?

    None, because I have to preserve my precious battery.

    I use the voice amp one. I mostly listen to audiobooks and podcasts, though, and I find I like the sound better than the spoken word setting.

    I have the V-moda Vibe Duo, so....Treble Boost. Makes the sound as close to perfect as I've been able to achieve without moving into the $300 headphone range.

    when using anything but the default sound....it uses more battery?

    Does the EQ setting change the sound for everything or just the iPod?

    Yes, it uses more battery.

    you use more cpu cycles to resample the input to eq it, therefore more power is required

    I use Latin, on everything from my Sensaphonics to the free earbuds that came with the phone.

    I also have played around with this and find that music sounds best- through quality headphones if left off.

    I wasn't aware of the battery power issue, that just makes my decision more of a plus.

    I did try 'dance' and I suppose if I was stuck on using one of the EQ settings, that would be it.

    My music is encoded in high quality so I keep it off.

    With proper encoding and good headphones you dont need EQ.
