I was thinking of making a new topic to get some more replies, but hopefully i get some replies here first.
First of all, I love the Galaxy Nexus, but I am slightly disappointed with the SQ. On my iPhone 3g, i had a pitch black background. The first thing i noticed with the Galaxy Nexus is that when performing certain actions, u can hear some white noise, then it stops 1-2 seconds later. This is apparently the DAC disengaging. Also, there is a bit of noise as tracks start and stop, but it quickly becomes overwhelmed by the music. However, when listening to some ballads, the noise is quite prevalent.
My earphones are Ortofon E-Q5's. The noise is quite obvious with these earphones, but when i plug in my AD700's or my K702's I can't hear the noise. But I would never use them on public transport.
So what should I do? Do you guys anticipate this can be fixed via software? I'm really hoping a dev finds a way to increase the quality from the Gnex soon, as I am a very analytical listener and as soon as I hear the noise at the start of the track my brain automatically searches for the noise throughout the track lol
