John Sciacca Review: Dirac: The Best Free Audio App You've Heard

Johnsciacca.webs.com Typically I would say that if you’ve purchased an iOS device – Pod, Phone, or Pad – the first thing you should do to improve your music listening experience should be this: Take the free, white, pack-in headphones and carefully unwrap them from their packaging. Admire them for a moment – so white and gleaming! – and say a quick word of thanks to Jobs and gang for including a complete, ready-to-listen, user experience right out of the box. And then…pitch them into the garbage. (Or, if you want a junker pair for those times when you are forced to work alongside Mike Rowe doing some unthinkable Dirty Job, or for your five-year-old that has a naughty habit of chewing on the cables while listening, toss them into that way-back part of your drawer that you only go to when trying to remember where you jotted down some obscure website user name and password.) (Audio, Gadgets, iOS, Phones, Software) A/A+
