MY new ipod classic offers the possibility to "normalize" all audio, so that mp3 with different volumes may reach all the same. Is it a good option, or it's better if I use some program that normalizes all mp3s once and for all? Does normalization consume more battery life?

Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Use the soundcheck feature to level out the volume somewhat.

    Apply it in iTunes using the edit/preferences/playback menu (Windows).

    iTunes/preferences/playback (Macs).

    Turn it on on the iPod using the settings/soundcheck/on menu.

    After applying it in iTunes, sync your iPod to reflect the changes made.

    There are 3rd party programs that do this more effectively (at least in my opinion).

    For Windows there is mp3/aacGain.

    For Macs there is iVolume.

    Also Macmp3Gain.
