Default Reason #3 to get an iPod: BBE

After iOS getting pan/balance and early stages of a Rockbox port, here's the next zinger, BBE for iOS: http://www.bbesonicmax.com/

Who would've thought that Apple would be the next one to get BBE, besides Cowon? Damn. BBE really should release that for Android as well.

For once I'm almost starting to believe that, with all these new good things coming.

thanks dfkt, if the cost is minimal I just might download this tonight when I get home.

And for some reason or another, I think you are also tempted.

Unfortunately, I just noticed that this iOS BBE is a music player app, not a system-wide sound setting. That's kind of silly, limiting it to one app - but I don't know if Apple would even allow tinkering with the whole system (in Android it's only possible with rooted devices).

True, that definately takes away the appeal. Maybe they figured people who watch videos wouldn't be interested?

I assume the various Equalizers available for iOS work system-wide?

No, I believe they're mostly for music and audio podcasts.

I'm under the impression that all 3rd-party equalizers for iOS are actually full music player apps, because Apple does not want to give the developers the rights to access driver level or kernel level programming. Anyway... if someone decides to try this one out, besides the obvious sound quality assessment, I'd like to know how good is the user interface. Can you build playlists on-the-go? Can you browse albums with cover art, ordered by the artist name? This is probably the most important feature I'd like to have...

Marv, how much is the cost? Your image is blocked so I can't see anything.

Pass! Like dfkt I want it built into the iPod system app, not 3rd party.

I'm intrigued by this because I wasn't fond of the BBE presets on the Cowons I had....I preferred to just tinker with the Mach3Bass, BBE, and the EQ. These control settings look like perhaps I could replicate that experience.

Thanks dfkt. $4.99 seems like a high price for this, but I still might give it a shot. Marv, you wanna try first so I don't spend my money?
