Buying advice iPod

Hey guys...

I need your advice.

 

I want an iPod for sports, so I have the choice between the new iPod touch (128 GB) and an (Apple certified refurbished) iPod Classic (160GB).

Back then I wanted a Classic for a long time - when I finally had the money it was taken off market.

 

-My old iPod touch was nice, but it's so old not much apps still work on it - would be the same with the new touch in some years too.

-Price is about nearly the same

-the touch can be used to feed my UE Boom 2- wireless speaker...

-classic hasnt a big screen, so the chance of spider-app is not that high as the touch

-expect the classic to have longer batteries per load..

 

So what would you recommend?

There are pros and cons on both sides...

 

Cheers Smiley Happy

Re: Buying advice iPod

I still use my classic in the car playing through an FM modulator.
Works perfect still for my needs of purely playing music.

@MI5

That's the point. It does what it should - playing music. For games I have a phone / 2 tablets/laptop

And I think with a cable it should feed the Boom 2 too...

See HERE the 3,5 mm AUX is the normal output like for headphones, right?

Yes, if your speaker has an aux in you can use that to connect to it.

Re: Buying advice iPod

Sounds OK considering new 7th gen ones are £500 on Amazon.

Re: Buying advice iPod
