I will likely get the 64 or 128GB S6 Edge. Thanks for starting the thread, the GSM Arena feedback is the only info I've found myself up to now.
 I've done some more testing now with a Modern Desktop with decent audio, Dragonfly 1.2, TabS 8.4, iP5 and Note 4 and find the Qualcomm Note 4 to be excellent with the SE846. If I'm splitting hairs the Exynos Tab S 8.4 does sound slightly better (more life) but nothing in it really to my ears. As for the SE846 themselves, amazing and much better than the standard SE535's I had in every way.  Still be using my trusty Klipsch X10i for exercise duties which still impress me...
Just picked up a 2nd hand pair of SE846's (should get Friday/Monday)   Will my source players be good enough to complement them:   Note 4 (Snapdragon version) Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (exynos version, believe it has Wolsfon DAC).   Keep reading the 8:1 Ohm ratio but don't understand it really.   I did try out a Dragonfly1.2 USB DAC recently with the above two using my current Klipsch X10i. I could detect an improvement when connected to the Note 4 but the Tab S sounded...
Here listening to various tracks with Spotify extreme through my Klipsch X10i's. My UK 64GB 5S sounds nearly identical to my new 128GB iPhone 6. In blind testing with my mate swapping the headphones between the two phones I can't reliably say which phone I'm listening to and Spotify continues track on each device as headphones plugged back in. I will also have a Note4 to play with on UK release ( I manage phones at work so get to use what I want). Have had/have all...
Not sure what your on about! Apart from lower volume output (no issue for me with my Klipsch X10i) the test figures also confirm good ??   From http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s4-review-914p8.php   Update 11 April: We've identified an issue with our testing procedure that caused lower readings for dynamic range, noise level and stereo crosstalk on some smartphones. We've since rectified it and updated the scores to reflect the actual performance on the affected...
I put some opinion in here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/661448/us-samsung-galaxy-s4#post_9405152
Don't have my Shure SE535's anymore as I actually prefer Klipsch X10i with my iPhone 5 so just done some back-to-back testing (earphone out) with my S4 that arrived yesterday (not the octa in UK).   Probably not going to be that useful to you audiophiles as I'm no expert but to my ears the S4 sounds as good as the iP5. I always thought the S3 sounded worse than the iP5.   Not using FLAC but am using Spotify Extreme which is 320ogg as far as I know.   Tried a...
Had a 4S and 5 and did back to back test of same tracks with my Klipsch x10i. For me they have a cleaner, less boomy bass and sounds a bit clearer/sharper in the mids. Highs same to me. Do need to have volume 1-2 steps higher. Sold the 4S now and perfectly happy with the 5.
Spent ages looking into this having had some S4i's for a while now after I sold my Shure SE535's (didn' like over the ear style and made my ears itch!). The S4i is the second best earphones I've had but do find bass a little too heavy and the mids/high obviously muffled compared to the SE535 (to be expected).   So very interested when Alex L mentioned the X7i but was also considering the X10/X10i mostly because I could get the X10 (without controls) for £119 from...
  God! Seeing as your so hard to please maybe the Artist's should just give you the music free!   Seriously, anybody who thinks $9.99 (or £10) per month is too expensive for unlimitted, mostly 320kbps music from a vast library playable to your iPhone, Android, PC or (in my case) WDTV Live to my TV is expensive then your either unemployed or a kid.   Thats only $0.33 (33p) per day! You can't even buy a packet of crisps for that.   Rant over, I'm a well pleased Spotify...
