iDFX enhances audio and stabilizes volume levels

Power Technology has launched iDFX, a new app claimed to improve playback quality of MP3 and AAC files on an iPod or other mobile device. The software works as an iTunes accessory and recodes the user's music files in an attempt to recover the same quality that existed in the original CD recordings. In order to do this, the software re-synthesizes damaged or missing harmonics while improving the low frequency range of the track.

The app can also be used to set a common volume level for all tracks, while a CD ripping utility copies CD content with the iDFX enhancement applied. Users can choose between either MP3 or AAC file formats when storing their enhanced music. Content can then be exported to various portable media players such as iPods, Zunes, or devices manufactured by SanDisk and Creative.

iDFX can be downloaded for the discounted price of $40 over the next two days, after which it will return to its regular price of $50.

    Tweak your Equalizer or use Sound Enhancer

    As far as a sound enhancer goes, the one built into iTunes works better, and there is far less distortion than this plug-in. True, you cannot download enhanced songs to your iPod using the iTunes sound enhancer, but you can improve your sound using the graphic equalizer...

    A little-known fact is that your own personal equalizer settings can be downloaded to your iPod. Any song which has an equalizer setting in iTunes will default to that setting when the iPod EQ is set to OFF, even your own personalized settings. I happen to like the "Perfect" settings talked about on many forums. A very nice sound if you ask me. So I set all my songs to it. But if you prefer, you can use whatever setting you like with any song you want. Just set your iPod EQ to OFF, and there you go! Want to remove the setting when listening to your iPod? That's what FLAT is for! Or any other built-in EQ setting if you wish.

    Search for Perfect iTunes Equalizer to find those EQ settings I mentioned.

    Happy Listening!!
