Do not pair it with any mobile phone. It deserves more. ;)

Well personally I think a mobile can be an excellent source. Don't know anything about the Nexus 5 though. Sorry.

I'm using IE80 with my GS4 and SQ is absolutely fine. A mobile with a good DAC is more than enough for IE80.

With dac, yes.

The DAC in the iPhone has excellent measurements.

Many could argue with this statement,

Personally I can't hear much of a difference between the DAC on my FiiO E18 and the DAC on my iPhone. I haven't tested with more expensive equipment, nor do I really care, I'm just throwing my two cents in here.

 

As for Ken Rockwell, well, you can't hate on a guy who seems to anger a whole community of photographers with a few words. Also, I can agree with some of his words as well -- it's always a tragic comedy walking into a camera store, seeing people spending way too much money thinking that the main obstacle for not taking great pictures is the gear itself. I guess that's how regular people see us head-fiers. Anyway, Ken, yeah he's both brilliant and a "funny guy", and it's always a guessing game as to which one shows up. Apparently he studies aliens and anal probing as well: http://www.kenrockwell.com/analprobe/dissent.htm

I once interviewed a guy (Had a radio show on XM for a bit) who stated without a hint of irony that at any given time there are at least 200 alien craft orbiting our planet. He also was an inter-dimensional artist with work being shown on as many as sixty planets simultaneously. All with a straight face.

 

Don't get me started about the Tall Greys and their proclivity for shopping at Sears...

And I thought audiophiles were out there!
post #5219 of 5567

Audiophiles, generally speaking, are pretty out there...

 

As for the interviewee on the radio, whoah. He must be in the anal probers society

 

Sometimes these musicians makes me wonder though...

You use the E18 with your iPhone or do you have Android portables as well? I think of buying an E18 for my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 10.1 , 2014 Edition, as I planned a öong fö

flight so I can listen to my downloaded Music offline. Wich in ears you use on your iPhone with or without DAC?
