“This and most other apple products bought in the EU...”

Written on: 05/08/2007 by arma (1 review written)

Good Points
Nice size, good menu and portability.

Bad Points
No realistic volume its just too damn quiet at maximum volume.

General Comments
This and most other apple products bought in the EU have a volume limit built into the firmware, this is additional to the volume limit setting you can adjust from the menu of the device. This is the problem folks, most people buy iPods and other MP3 players to listen while running, travelling on a plane or Bus or whatever. These units are so quiet you can hear the wind noise, people chatting and Aeroplane hum whilst the volume is on MAX disturbing your listening enjoyment.

They are fine when you are sat in a quiet room (as long as you don't tap your foot too hard or you will hear that as well.) but in any normal day to day travel or activity environment they are next to useless.

If you simply must buy one get it from the USA, Here they have not got the volume limit built into the firmware and the units can produce a respectable volume level.

I am gonna sell mine and get something else (no company is gonna tell me, a grown adult, how loud I can listen to my music. That's my choice. )
