Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod sufficient?

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod works fine? I have had my current iPod Video Black for almost 1.5 years, and I have never been satisfied with its sound. It's almost impossible to find a perfect EQ preset that could go well with all types of music I listen to. Whenever I need some bass for a song, I simply set the EQ to Loudness, Rock, R&B or whatever. But, especially when the shuffle is on, the EQ preset which I previously set distorts the sound. So, I don't want to struggle with changing EQ presets all the time; furthermore, it isn't good for the battery either. For once, I've tried to arrange appropriate EQ settings for each song independently on iTunes, but it didn't work either. I don't want to shell out huge amounts of money for those "Hi-end" earphones. I am wondering if anyone has the same problem, and what could be the best solution for that. Regards

Hrm..... This is a tough issue. I have experienced this as well. I can't really solve the problem, I can only share what I have done personally to deal with this. Hope this helps. I have settled on: 1. Leave the iPod's EQ on default and don't change it. 2. Change certain songs that must have EQ help individually. 3. Set the maximum volume setting on the iPod to the highest setting. 4. Assess where and how I listen to music on my iPod and plan to get headphones that work with my listening style. 5. Get better headphones. They don't have to be expensive to produce good sound quality. 6. If you connect it to a speaker dock or a stereo system use it's built in EQ/DSP.

Sony how to change the bass on my sony mex bt3100u stereo

Hello Tom,

You may have to adjust the EQ7 Preset to XPLOD and then listen to the jam. Here are the instructions from the bt3100u manual:

Selecting the sound quality
- EQ7 Preset
You can select an equalizer curve from 7 equalizer curves ("XPLOD," "VOCAL," "EDGE," "CRUISE," "SPACE," "GRAVITY," "CUSTOM" or "OFF").
1 During reception/playback, press the select button.
2 Rotate the control dial until "EQ7 PRESET" appears, then press it.
3 Rotate the control dial until the desired equalizer curve appears, then press it.
4 Press (BACK).
The display returns to normal reception/play mode. To cancel the equalizer curve, repeat the first 2 steps then select "OFF" in step 3.
The equalizer curve setting can be memorized for each source.
We hope that this helps. If not please return and post how this went.

My music from my computer speakers sounds like it is in a cave, music is fine but can hardly hear the singer. How can I fix this?

You might have mistakenly changed the Equalizer Presets in Volume Control Panel on Tray ICON which is located near to Date & Time (Right Bottom Corner of the Screen). change the presets to Rock/Pop you can get clear output of your choice.

Works great , but Ipod dock only will give about half volume

All Ipod docks bypass the audio processor, so your volume and equalizer presets on the ipod will not work. Use the volume knob on the home theater unit itself.

Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

LED Indicator Problems & Flasher Relay?

Modern Ducatis (and cars) don't have a conventional flasher. The blink rate is controlled by the dash cpu. The blink rate change is used to indicate that a bulb is out (by sensing low resistance). Using a resistor will fool the cpu into blinking correctly.

Locked iPod

Use Itunes, and Restore to factory settings. this will remove any lock codes. It will also erase any files currently on the Ipod (Music or otherwise). Then just Resync with Itunes, and you should be back in buisness

IPod will not work.

restoring factory settings won't revert the player back to previous ipod software. Check with the alpine website product support and see which ipod software versions are compatible with the car deck you installed. I would think the latest version would be supported. then go to the apple website and download the most recent version of itunes that alpine says is compatible. connect your pod and open itunes. upgrade the pod to that itunes version and try it again with the car deck.
