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.

I almost didn't get this device, because I head last years with Beast at the store, and I wasn't impressed by the audio. i liked my Samsung better. Well my parents have the Note 3, and we did a blind soundest, and the difference was astounding. The Note 3's colors are slightly more accurate. The wights appear burnt on the Note compared to the HTC. The camera is also better on the Note, although the HTC camera is nice compared to the S3

I have the Galaxy S4 (With a standard Google Edition ROM - I hate the Samsung/Touchwiz stuff). I'm a huge fan of the Note 3 to be honest, if I get a new phone this year, I'll probably consider that.

 

Anyway, I received a Fiio E18 last week, which has a handy feature of being a USB DAC for the Galaxy S4, so I don't have to really worry about the audio component of the S4 itself, or any other Android device it connects to - all audio is handled through the E18.

 

It's also a power/charging station as well, if your phones running out of battery.

 

Not to mention, a bass-boost switch, which seems mostly targeted at mid-bass, but I haven't really played with that much yet.

 

Overall, a great product for any Android users.

I used to be Samsung fanboy, but the build quality of the HTC is really impressive.

115db is not really necessary unless your trying to go death. 115db is equivalent to sand blasting or a loud rock concert

Ah, I personally don't mind the brand, as long as it's reputable, I just look at the product itself. I used a Nokia Lumia 920 before the S4, and absolutely loved it. 

 

Those HTC phones definitely have terrific build quality, that's for sure!

I agree, I've dropped my HTC One a few times and even accidentally got it entirely soaked in water once and it's still working perfectly fine.

Disregard the distortion on my JBL it was from the playback quality of Pandora. Listening now on Beats Music and they sound simply amazing.

Well, I've accidentally tripped, had my Nokia fly 13 feet, hit a wall, and get a barely noticeable dent with no case on... Try to beat that. biggrin.gif

Lol. But, anyways, go buy an amp new wave.

It's a Nokia, that's supposed to be business as usual :p

Just found that the speakers in the new HTC are made by Harman Kardon. The same company that makes my JBL.
Update
Never mind it's exclusively for sprint

+1 for Nokia strength! I spent a month or so snowboarding in the Italian alps last year - every session had music playing in my ears from the Lumia 920. Strong as an ox, great battery life, yada yada.

 

So anyway, I gave my girlfriend some Westone 3 IEMs last year, and I tried them out last night - I remembered them being really bass-heavy, especially in the midbass region. But somehow, it doesn't seem like that anymore, maybe my usage of ridiculous bass hybrid IEMs has shifted my opinion on the Westone 3.

 

Maybe I'm just completely falling in love with hybrids.

Harman owns 5 other audio companies, including akg and jbl.
