Ok, I ordered some of the networks Pink Noise CDs and I was attempting to listen to it and install in onto a Pink iPod Shuffle......and to my surprise, up came two songs!

I am a Barbie Girl was one!

I thought, Dan and Rob have played a joke on me.  It was clearly not a pink sound but then again, it was a really 'pink' song!

Then I figured out this song came on the new shuffle as a bonus song!

I had a good friday laugh.

Now, how do I get this cd of the pink noise onto my Pink Shuffle?  Is there an easy way?

Dr. J   not a Barbie Girl, I liked Trolls.

Dr. J,

That is hilarious.  I would have liked to see your face the moment that song popped on. LOL!  The way I upload cd's to my ipod is to use i-tunes.  If you don't have i-tunes  you can download it free.  Then, just open i-tunes, and upload the cd  to your computer and it will transfer it to the ipod when plugged into the computer.

Darlene

PS.  I liked trolls better too!

Dr. J,

I remember something being said about the format one uses for that- something about avoiding compressed formats.....
As some formats (such as .wav) retain the sound quality better than others.....

Go to preferences in the menu (under iTunes) and make sure the way you import the pink noise file onto your computer is in .wav-format. It will be huge though (about 700 MB), but that's how it should be used. Uncompressed. And without any equalizing when playing it.

To put it on your pink iPod, just attach the iPod to your computer and in iTunes select the pink noise file in the main music playlist (library) and drag the song/file on the icon of your iPod in the left menu.

Debbie,

That is so funny you said that-

I just realized I DO have misophonia! It's to the, 'I'm a Barbie Girl' song!

And is similar to something I was thinking of awhile back-
that we all have our own preferences in music-
and there are some things that even if we could listen to them
we would really rather not.
I know there are some things that come on the radio-
that just make me reach for the button to change the channel.......

Other things sound great though :-)

But I am still behind the times when it comes to music-
and have never heard the "I'm a Barbie Girl" song - maybe I should count myself lucky?

Hey aQB ! No it's not 'rip'. It's 'drag' lol. Just found out from my hubby and corrected it. So now your post makes no sense anymore haha.

You are right Guflu-
the term would be drag-

I don't have an ipod or any of those similar devices,
That is why I said-
Though I don't have one of those devices, I think you are referring to the term "rip" as I have heard that used before. (And I would have no idea of how to do it, at this point,  if I did so Thanks for the information!)

I have deleted that part out of my previous post- as you changed your's already. If you choose to delete your post, above - this one will also be deleted..

It could have been worse, Dr.J.  Might have been a loud acid rock band like the old Steppenwolf, blasting you into the next precinct! lol!

I can top that--Someone who will remain anon., from TSMB once mailed me a CD, supposed to be pink or white noise, I forget which.  Blank as my mind.  Not ONE sound on it!  It didn't overtax my ears, but then it didn't do them any good either.

Hi Tony,

I heard the song Jane had mentioned -
Born To Be Wild, on the car radio, a month or so ago, and tried to listen to it-
Could NOT do it, just a little bit and had to quit,
Even on very low volume.
I wondered if it was a remix - or just the way it was?
To think Jane could turn it up, (as she mentioned that elsewhere)
was a grin though.

Just wondering why each one of you cannot tolerate certain songs.Is it the volume,bass or treble? Ive noticed that a GOOD sound system is very easy on my ears but every television in the world is way too trebly! Maybe the speakers on the newer,flatter sets do not have the same bass quality.P.S. To Bartony ...Steppenwolf had the highest dose of bass I ever heard.(something my ears miss).

Thanks Paul-

You explained part of why I could not listen to that song on the radio......

There was a thread around here about sound quality and TVs awhile back.

Someone mentioned something about the sound being digital verses analog.
And the quality. For me I have a harder time with bass. Thankfully my TV allows me to have some control over the settings.

Hi, Wanted to share that this discomfort with TV can change.
My (non flat) TV sound now is almost normal in my ears again!
When I first tuned in a few months ago, the hiss was audible, my ears pressurized extra and my T flared after watching, no matter how low the setting.
Now, while I am still wading through some of these symptoms in other ways, TV is basically not a problem.
Interesting, and a positive sign, that these things which seem so devastating can change.

I have a huge random collection of mp3s from over the years, one of them was the german version of Barbie girl, and another a parody version called "ugly girl", the german one was quite hilarious...

and to add yes audio quality makes a difference for me too, i can listen to music loud, loud enough to actually cause a set-back it appears without discomfort at the time of listening, but the point im making is that I can listen to it at a reasonable volume with no problems whereas a bad cell phone speaker or a blown speaker or certain dis harmonic or rather low quality sounds get me quite fast.

Ebhak,

You said-

When you say you are listening to music  "Loud" are you listening over  an ipod or similar device with earbuds?
If so, it may be helpful to keep in mind that the earbuds put the sound closer to the eardrum, than headphones would, and I wonder how much of a differenece that would make?  (In the ability to tolerate sound at a certain volume?)

About the quality-
I have read that the compression used for certain formats,can leave music or other sounds lacking the quality that was available in the origional, or uncompressed recording.
And Rob has mentioned before  that listening to higher quality sounds/music (Like professionally recorded cds) is more advisible  in some cases. (than listening to music and or sound in compressed formats)
And my guess is it probably sounds alot better too.

And I don't know how many of the portable music devices come with a "volume limiter",  I am not sure how they work, but I think it may be  a good thing to "enable" it  if it is an option. In part as precaution against having the sound being turned up too much accidentally.

Debbie,

you mentioned-

Glad you are seeing/hearing improvement :-)
