I was a little skeptical with using the buds that came with the iPod, but I should have known better because this is a BBE product. They really mean what they say about making any headphone sound great. I love this app and would encourage anyone who loves sound the way it was meant to be heard to use this app happily. Enjoy.

Excellent app..just one problem I
This is a great app..it really makes your Iphone's music playing capabilities shine. That said, there are a couple issues that have come up for me on several occasions. I'm not sure why, but if I use my camera while this app is playing it will often skip forward on song while I'm messing with my camera controls. I'll go to take a picture and all of a sudden the song will skip forward to the next one. Not sure how this happens as BBE is running in the background. I run it in the background with many other applications, but the camera is the only thing that makes this happen. Basically I can't take pictures while I'm listening to music because of this..not the biggest deal in the world, but it is an annoyance for an app that costs 5 bucks, which is a fortune in terms of Iphone apps. My second issue is the fact that the app inserts a quick one second gap between songs. To most this might not make a difference. If you listen to a studio album you won't notice it as studio records naturally contain a brief silence between tracks. I listen to a lot of live recordings, Phish in particular, and when songs run together you can hear the separation in the track because it pauses for a quick second. It's not just the files, because if you listen to these same tracks in other players you don't hear the little skip. So this app needs to be able to go seamlessly from one track to the next to be a perfect five for me. All this said, I'm a bit of an audiophile and demand more from an audio app than most..but I feel that a lot of folks who download a 5 dollar app are somwhere in the same neighborhood as me as far as what they expect even if the circumstances aren't exactly the same. It makes your music sound better than it would normally..particularly with headphones. If they could clean up some of these other miscelanneous issues I and others have reported it would be an easy five star app. As is, I can't complain about the increase in quality from what my music sounded like on Iphone before and after this app...so props on that. Clean up the minor problems and you've got a five star masterpiece on your hands. Thanks BBE.

Great sound quality, needs work though.
And great control instead of just a couple presets to pick from. However, as an app in general I have some problems with it. 1. The way the app organizes songs (except playlists) is unpractical and a little frustrating. 2. The app can be frustrating to navigate as well. There isn't really a quick "one click/tap" to jump from the music being played to the equalizer or mixer. 3. When I double click the home button and slide over to where the normal music player controls are they don't work well with the app.... I can only pause songs, not skip or go back. 4. Although the app does use my already present album art, the use of it is almost non-existent and I feel like I'm using some kind of bootleg free music app. Seeing the album artwork is important to how a song sounds to me. After using this app for over month I feel that my review is as accurate as its going to get. This needs a new interface the already existing one is okay at best. I had to delete this app from my phone as it was taking up too much space is not practical in my opinion. If anybody reading this feel I was nitpicking, then they would be correct. It's not often I pay $5 for one app.

Sonic excellence
The improvements of this app are astounding. I like being able to "see ahead" when playing random songs. Well worth the price.

Huge sound improvement
I don't mind paying for apps that work and boy does this one work. The sound improvement is like adding a mini amp to your touch or iPhone with the ability to tweak the sound. I've used it with earbuds like yuin pk3's, sennheiser mx 580 and with UE's triple-fi 10's and this app has greatly enhanced the sound on all of them. I've used a lot of mp3 players in the past and always felt the iPod line had the poorest sound out of all of them even with great phones, but when listening to music through this app, it feels like the sound quality is up there with the best of them. $5.00 well spent and I don't say that about many apps.
