I realize this may sound like a crazy question, but after 63 years of listening to loud music (yep, I heard the Stones when they were the new kids on the block!) I have lost some hearing in my left ear. Can anyone tell me if any music player has L/R Balance Controls so I can increase the volume on my left ear bud? Also, can music players play pod casts I have downloaded with Podkicker Pro? Only because it's convenient, I have been using the Amazon MP3 Player, which may be the cause of distortion and "static" when some music is played through an external speaker, but, that's another issue! Thanks for any advice and assistance. Happy Thanksgiving to All!
