Enhancing Your Sound Quality (EQ)

You’re about to uncover a feature of your iPod that can make your music sound so much better, you’ll never turn this feature off again (and sadly, it’s off by default). Your iPod has a built-in sound Equalizer that can change the audio output of your iPod so it sounds best for the type of music you listen to—and best of all, all you have to do is choose from a list of built-in presets. Here’s how it works: From the Main Menu, use the Click Wheel to scroll down to Settings, and press the center Select button. Scroll down to EQ and press the Select button again. You’ll see a list of preset EQs for each musical taste (e.g., R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz, Spoken Word, Acoustic, Classical, etc., plus special EQ settings that boost the bass, boost the vocals, or reduce the treble). Just scroll down to the type of music you listen to, click the Select button, then go back and listen to your music again. You will be absolutely amazed at how much richer, fuller, and just flat-out better your music will sound.
