Improving Audio for my Toshiba Thrive
I just purchased a Toshiba Thrive tablet. I like all the aspects of the Thrive, but the audio is weak. This has been a complaint to Toshiba, but is especially worrisome to me. I want to use my tablet for traveling -- both air and auto (which have a lot of background noise). I do a lot of reading and watching recorded TV shows. I am 65 and have a mild hearing loss from too much loud music in the 60's. I had some difficulty with my previous laptop and I am concerned about how to resolve this problem in my Thrive (I have 30 days to return it if I am not satisfied).
I presently have a set of Bose AE2 headphones. I emailed JDSLabs and they said that the cMoy BB amplifier would help, but I saw in this forum that the amplifier might not be the solution, the headphones might be the problem.
My question: Is there a solution? Which is the best way to go? Return the Thrive (my least favorite option), better headphones, or an amplifier. Any recommendations are welcome. A good list of options or suggestions will give me something to research.
