I use my headphones as speakers on the school bus... SPEAKERS. LOUDER THAN THE ORIGINAL HTC ONE. HEADPHONES. USED AS SPEAKERS. Think about that for a minute... That's what an amp can do, and if you ever decide to upgrade your headphones, you'll need something a bit more powerful to drive them effectively. That's also when an amp comes into play. It also is fun to amp portable speakers, and get them to be louder than they should be... Oh, my e11 was able to drive desktop speakers too... Plus, that HTC one N8 looks pretty good. Although I just got a 500$ Nokia Lumia 925, so I'm not looking for a new phone right now. My phone is basically the windows phone equivalent of the HTC one. It is full aluminum, has a polycarbonate backing covering more aluminum,(and the aluminum itself is like... 3-5mm thick from looking at it.) a fantastic camera, and my favorite... It runs windows phone 8! I prefer wp8 over iPhone and Droid.

Distortion may be because there's not enough power and the amp is clipping

Yeah, bass boost at full volume on the 55's causes the amp to clip big time... Could be. Especially if he's using bass boost eq settings, although I haven't ever had a phone amp clip on me...

No clipping. My cans can't handle the impact of the bass on some songs.

Must be really **** cans. My cans don't distort at high volumes. They just don't produce that sub bass
post #10957 of 11259

The clipping may occur due to the volume being attached to the software volume, and not linked directly to the internal amp itself.

 

More often than not, the internal amp is "set in stone", and the user simply adjusts the system volume around it.

 

There are projects for certain phones to link system volume directly to the amp, for total control of the internal amp volume - SuperCurio has done some wonderful things in this regard, especially with older Samsung phones that have a Wolfson DAC inside.

Maybe I need to tone down my music volume level, sense the phone has a built in amp. On my previous phone I listened to music at full volume. My new phone is much louder so maybe I should turn it down before I go death

hmm... Get an E11... I keep telling ya man... A really nice pair of cans those jbl's are, but they distort about as easily as the n-tunes...

Did anyone ever try the Galaxy S1 with Voodoo?

 

It was a great sounding phone. Low OI, and insane amounts of power for a phone.

 

It was really surprising. And considering the competition at the time, it was a worthy choice.

 

It's great that 128gb microSD cards are now available - but the price is so painful.

My JVC's take full volume on the e11 and don't distort noticeably much... My k240's... That's another story. The e11 at full volume with bass heavy tracks on bass boost (... 2 notches louder than is needed to block all noise with open backed cans on a noisy school bus...)distorts them...

Review of audio by GSMarena 

"The HTC One (M8) audio quality is by far the best we've seen a mobile device produce so far - and that's including tablets. Even its impressive predecessor pales in comparison with the latest HTC flagship, which is not only the loudest around, but also delivers perfectly clean output.


The HTC One (M8) did perfectly in the active external amplifier part of the test, posting great scores all over the field. In addition it had volume levels higher than every other mobile device on the market right now.


More impressively, there's virtually no degradation when you plug in a pair of headphones. The stereo crosstalk rises so little that it remains better than what some smartphones deliver without headphones. The rest of the readings remain perfect too, while the volume is as high as they come. What do you know - dropping the Beats logo actually led to even more spectacular performance by the HTC flagship."

Hmm... My friend has the 400$ jbl synchros flagship cans... Jbl and akg are both owned by Harman, so they must have the same high quality expectations of them. I'm going to ask him to bring them.

Why am I not surprised? :rolleyes:

 

I wish their review included OI tests..

 

I guess it's only really important if you're using multi driver IEMs, or low-impedance headphones.

that doesn't include portable music players. The fiio x5 puts out more power than an e11.
