Why does my iTouch sound like it is underwater?

    Please help!

    Bought iTouch yesterday and music that sounds perfect when played in iTunes sounds terrible in iTouch.

    Specifically it sounds as if the music is only playing "half" the channel of the music on the song eg. rhytm guitar and drums with sometimes no singing or lead guitar.

    Can someone take a moment to talk me through what I have done wrong and how I can rectify it.

    Apologies if this is a standard complaint as I can't find a FAQ that answers this problem.

    It is 100% possible that you have a bad headphone jack on the iPod Touch. have you had a chance to try some other headphones or external speakers? Perhaps try jiggling the headphone jack (with headphones or speakers plugged in) and see if sound changes.

    Can i just ask if you mean the sound through Earphones?

    or the internal speaker?

    Sounds like a strange one. Mabie he jack is dodgey or the earphones are damaged

    Thanks for your help.
