I've listened to everything from rock and rap to jazz and gabber, but each time I'm left cranking the volume up to 80 percent just get a decent thump out of my headphones or earbuds. If I pump it higher, the music quality crackles under the pressure.

Thankfully, there's an iPod amplifier available that looks every bit as good as the iPod and helps the sound along, too. It's not cheap at $149, but Simpl Acoustics' A1 does the job well.
