Samsung Galaxy S Sound Quality - Page 2

post #16 of 227

thank you for trying that out. Unfortunately, from what I read, the GP and SGS will have virtually the same hardware. Maybe that will change.  I was expecting it to be much better than the M6. frown.gif

keep in mind I haven't installed voodoo, which may make that little difference, and what's the SQ difference between the m3 and the m6, is the m6 sw slightly better sq than the m3 anyway?
Also, the sgs is a great little gadget with many other uses. In particular it's customizability.

Anyone knows whether the same tweaks for the SGS will apply to the Galaxy Ace?

AFAIK, Voodoo is not supported on Galaxy Ace.

WOW It's literally 10 times better and louder (about twice, 1.5x the m6's loudest) and more powerful, don't even need my fiio e5, the bass (3x bassier than m6, when turned up) is literally shaking my drivers just as my desktops Creative Audigy 4 does! My jaw literally dropped at the improvement! Beats the M6 SQ by more than double.

 
I used GTO Gingerbread Kernel Beta 2 v2.1: http://forum.damiangto.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=134
 
and rooted my xwjvb build using the files from here: http://androidadvices.com/how-to-root-galaxy-s-on-android-2-3-3-xwjvb-firmware/
 
voodoo is free to download from market

The SGS sound quality is superb.

Voodoo is a must. If you don't won't to mess with kernels and rooting your phone then pay 4$ for the Voodoo Control Plus.

Just wondering what you guys use to make the sound quality better. 
IE: apps? EQ?

 

many thanks to those who chime in :)

i have been playing and following project voodoo since it began and they are now at version 5.5.3. It is essentially a kernel that applies a lagfix specifically for the samsung galaxy s. apply that with darky's rom you have yourself one of if not the best built in headphone amplifier! The application is configurable. I use the stock samsung music player which has an equaliser and listening modes. It is sensational.. why? ** voodoo uses the wolfson WM8994 headphone amplifier code stack. contact me if you need more info! enjoy!

I'm very glad of sgs's sound quality, I bought the hippo vb earphones for bass and I didnt really feel satisfied when I used it with my sony x1000 (the sound quality overall is awesome though), but with sgs and poweramp with the tone setting on it really feels like I have a pair of awesome quality subwoofers attached to my head! :D

I've been using the voodoo sounds for a several months already. It is absolutely amazing just after a new kernal. Plus POWERAMP


But honesty, how does it compare to what other people use ? (those sansa+ rockbox/ipod touch LOD/Cowan j3?)

and does it make it much difference if I plug an external amp on it?
post #29 of 227

I would love to hear someone do a comparison for myself as in the near future I think i'll be shopping for a new DAP...

Depends on what amp and phones you're using...

With my e5, after installing voodoo kernel, it added more hissing noise from the amp than before. But if I crank the bass up and lower the pre-amp in PowerAMP, the e5 does help to increase the max volume. This is with my ATH-M50, and the more portable/easier to drive phones will show less of a difference amped/un-amped.

 

Generally speaking though after you've voodoo'd your phone, you don't need an amp, unless you crave head crushing bass at LOUD volumes.. or if you're using higher impedance headphones, but whatever you do just please be careful with your eardrums... dt880smile.png
