I am trying to decide between the 160GB classic and the 64GB touch. How many songs do they hold approximately?

This is from my Touch 5G.

This all depends on the type of compression used and the bitrate. Bitrates can be as low as 6 kbps (phone quality) to more than 1000 kbps (lossless cd quality). Typical is 192 kbps for MP3 and 128 kbps for AAC.
Not to mention iOS will use 2-3GB right off the bat. I would say the 64GB Touch will hold just over 15000 songs, although this is assuming that the entire drive is used for music.
nadechworld.com advertised the 160GB iPod as holding 40000 songs.

It can vary due to the bitrate of your songs, average length, etc. Look in iTunes and find out the file size of most of your songs, then do the math.
For example, if your average song size is 5.0 MB, a 64 GB iPod will hold about 13,000 songs (actually less due to operating system size, but you get the point)

32GB or 64GB flash drive2Holds up to 7,000 or 14,000 songs in 128-Kbps AAC format3
My 160 GB Classic has about 5000 songs on it and still has 111 GB remaining, so if the average song size were to remain the same it would reach its capacity at about 21,000 songs. However, most of my music is classical so their file sizes are somewhat large. I also have a few videos that are much larger than a typical MP3.
Therefore nadechworld.com”s claim of about 40,000 is probably about right.
You can”t get a 160gb ipod classic anywhere now as nadechworld.com stopped making them years ago. I want one but can”t get one anywhere except on eBay, where prices are outrageous.
I purchased my 160gb only 2/3 years ago in JB hi Fi store here in Perth west Australia . I recently saw they still still retail them. although they are quite expensive initially it is the only time yu will need to buy it as for music and photos the average person won”t b able to fill it in their lifetime

Are you saying I”m not average?
