 They're not available here yet either. I am a tech reviewer, so LG sent one my way ahead of schedule to preview. They're still very adamant in insisting that it's a "pre-production" unit and things will change before final release, so we're not allowed to "review" it—only do "overviews and first looks." LOL. Also, I don't want to crush any dreams, but so far, I prefer the SQ of the V10; by a fair margin too. I'll post a much more detailed analysis tomorrow.
Look what LG sent me. Will post impressions soon.  
 I didn't really have the chance to use high-end IEMs per-say. I'm more of a headphone guy. I did use a pair of old Sleek Audio CT7 CIEM and they sounded great. Dead black. No hissing. Gain is a little touchy (like each click of the volume buttons is a little too much for me. I want smaller increments).  Better than M9. Haven't used Z5.   I'm a pretty popular tech reviewer, so LG sent it for review purposes ahead of launch. I'm apparently one of 30 that has the phone ahead...
Hey guys. I'm the guy that made the video on page 7. I've had the V10 for a few days and totally forgot to talk about the DAC/amp.   Let me say this: this is the best smartphone ever made for audiophiles.   Let me also add this: some of the low-mid end DAPs are in serious trouble.   I have had about 2 days to seriously listen to the V10 with a variety of different headphones and I've continued to be blown away. It puts the iPhone 6/6s to shame and even embarrasses...
These are my Denon D5000 that I purchased on February 29, 2012. These headphones are rare and incredibly hard to find. When they do go on sale, they’re expensive. The average sale price on eBay is $560. This is a closed-back can that sounds superb. These cans have the hard-to-do but highly praised Markl mod. Isolation, blackness, and low-end bass response are incredible. Can be easily powered by a smartphone? Yes. Box included? No. Detachable cable? No. Driver Type:...
These are my MrSpeakers Alpha Dog headphones which I received a few months ago. The headphones are $600 new. These headphones are the comfiest cans I’ve ever used. Not even kidding. They’re like pillows on your ears. They are a Fostex T50RP mod that sound unreal—considering that the headphones are using cheaper drivers. The cups are 3D printed and wonderfully ported to provide a nice closed sound. These things have serious bass and would be good for any...
These are my Sennheiser HD650 that I purchased on February 1, 2012. The headphones are $500 new and $449 on Amazon. These are amongst my favorite headphones ever. This full-size open-back reference can delivers silky smooth, accurate sound with a laid-back, mellow tonal delivery. The HD650 is a gorgeous can for acoustic music of all kinds and for listeners seeking warm, richly rendered detail without brightness or glare. Can be easily powered by a smartphone? No. Box...
These are my Beyerdynamic DT 990 Audiophile Edition (600 ohms) that I purchased on March 28, 2012. These are unique headphones—they have a very V-Shape frequency response. A lot of bass, a lot of highs, lack of emphasis on the mids. Read reviews before you buy. A lot of people hate these headphones and a ton of people love them. I’m of the latter category and have found it a hugely satisfying experience to own the DT 990. Can be easily powered by a smartphone? Absolutely...
These are my HiFiMAN HE-400 headphones that I acquired a few months ago. These headphones are loved and hated by many. The primary reason that they are bashed is because of their ear pads. The stock pads suck. They tamper with the sound and get hot/itchy. The newly released HE-400i change this. Needless to say the HE-400i are some of the most highly praised headphones around $500. But they’re $500. I’ve put the HE-400i pads ($45) on the HE-400 and while they don’t compare...
 Welcome to Head-Fi! I have to agree with you. The desktop clients (Mac too) are both really subpar. I've been using the Chrome web-app, but it's really not the same as a native app. I always accidentally quit my browser, etc., etc. I ended up making little "web-apps" for Chrome on my Mac that work nicely. Sadly, that cannot really be done on Windows. I think they need more conditional logic discovery methods rather than only hand-curated playlists. Rdio is remarkable at...
