Go to "Settings," then "EQ," and choose "Off." The equalizer optimizes sound quality, but it also drains your battery. Step 3: Turn off backlight Turn off the backlight. Go to "Menu," "Settings," "Backlight Time," and select "Off." Step 4: Create playlists Create playlists in iTunes and listen to them on your iPod.
