I bet, sadly that i could hear the noise floor on your UE18s on the HTC One. 
The problem I'm having isn't based on impedance, it seems more like sensitivity.
And the S3, and the Htc M7. Oh! This one too :(Hate using attenuation. I'm seriously considering the next iphone (6?) or hunting down a wolfson samsung (eek) to see if it remedies the issues. I'm starting to wonder if Qualcomm's chipsets just have poor output, every one I've heard hisses.  I'm bitter.
Ew amoled... if you like oversatured colors, blotchey, blotchy blacks in the dark, pixel sharing (pentile).  Never another pentile screen for me.   I'll bet that they both hiss for music, I can imagine the samsung being worse. My S3 was horrible.
Wow... 5db is a big drop in power. About 3 times, not to mention the reduction in bit depth. I was excited for this phone until I read about the hissing in the background, similar to the M7.
Yeah... attenuation like that can mess up the response by quite a large margin. It's essentially increasing the output impedance seen by the headphones, and input impedance seen by the phone.
Please keep us updated. I'm OCD about that hiss on the noise floor!
Thanks, this is what i have been waiting for someone to say... Every android device i've had has the hiss. I hate apple but the output from their phones is amazing.
Faux Sound will help you reduce your gain. :) Can you do me a huge favor? Do you hear a white "hissing" for about 3 seconds after you are playing music then suddenly stop it?
In a phone i would be more concerned about shielding, output circuitry and output impedance. I just assumed the Snapdragon 801 SOC integrated a DAC in the package?
