My DROID RAZR is HERE!!! AWESOME!!! - Page 3

post #31 of 47

According to GSMarena the RAZR has pretty good SQ - http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_razr_xt910-review-683p5.php

We were left really puzzled by the Motorola RAZR XT910 performance in our audio quality test. Until the very last reading it was a strong contender for turning out the best musicphone ever. And then came the headphones-on stereo crosstalk.

The RAZR XT910 did extremely well in the active external amplifier part of the test. One of the loudest smartphones we have seen, the RAZR also got class-leading scores all over the place and perfect frequency response.

And, for the most part, it remained like this when headphones came into play. That didn't lead to any notable increase in distortion or deviations in the frequency response and the volume levels remained quite high, too. What ultimately robbed the Motorola RAZR XT910 of the title here was its stereo crosstalk in the second test. That's the highest reading we have ever seen and it's really bad enough to damage the overall sonic experience quite a lot.

Do you guys think this is on a software level? Also does MIUI support motorolas?
I have the original SGS and the SGS2 is just disappointing from the audio perspective. :/

I haven't noticed the crosstalk, personally, but I'd be interested to know the answer to that question as well.

can you compare it to any other phones that you've had in the past/present? SQ wise.

This is my first smartphone, personally.

 

I can say that I ditched my ipod touch about 2 weeks ago, though, and I haven't missed it for a second.  I was hesitant at first, because the default music app pretty much sucks, but once I downloaded PowerAMP, I was good to go.

Well. Could you please play a track with very clear Stereo seperation at 75% volume or a comfortable but high volume and see if the sounds leaks to the other channel? With such a bad reading shouldnt the RAZR sound "mono"?

I've done this and haven't noticed any issues but my ears may not be sensitive enough to really notice. Is there a way we can duplicate their test?

Has any of you tested this with PowerAMP? It's my personal "miracle player" and I'd love to hear if it works for you guys.

It's what I use and I love it. Care to share your equalizer settings? I've been wondering what serious audiophiles do with their PowerAmp settings.

LOL!!! I'm not an audiophile & I find that I just play w/the settings till it sounds good. You'll learn to do the same by playing with the EQ.

Well, I didn't mean audiophile in the purest sense of, course.  If that were the case, then I doubt either of us would be caught dead listening to music on a phone. :P

 

Still, I always wonder how I can get the best sound possible with what I've got.

Loving the RAZR so far. Mostly super happy with switching over from ATT to Verizon. Holy crap LTE is fast. Its a different world of blazing fast binary now for me!!

MIUI does support some Moto devices. Not the newer ones though, I think. D3 is only just getting along with CM7 as well. Good deal of broken and working things.

Don't quote me on this but I think the EQ stuff you get on Moto devices is hardware based. It needs some libs to work, just like DSP Manager. I've simply placed the apk in system/app before and it didn't do a thing.

okay am resurrecting this thread, but been using the Draoid Razr in the office with my HD202.

 

Not bad at all. I am looking forward to when i can get some customs IEMs made.

 

But the RAZR is rather resolving. Detail retrieval is excellent and its got plenty of power to drive the HD202 to produce decent SPL levels without breakup at normal listening levels.

Yep, I'm still pleased with mine as well.  Using it with the Shure SRH 940s.
