Shozy has kindly provided me a review unit in exchange for the honest opinion. They are in active use for about 6 months. I should first note that my experience with IEM is a bit limited by now, so...

This is by far the closest I have come to writing a 5 star review. Of course to get that, I would have to find the holy grail of headphones for me. I had tried the HD558, HD598, HD650, and...

These are *fantastic* for the price. Compared side by side to some old Sennheiser MX500s, that cost at least 4x as much, the Monk+ absolutely wipes the floor - they are hugely superior. Warm...

Yes, it is strange.A dmesg log could detail what is going on.Example of a dmesg log, showing a buggy firmware of a Teac USB DAC:post #64 of 86536/3/12 at 2:46am
USB audio is enabled on factory Samsung Galaxy S III connected to a USB sound stick:
"I just tested one of those cheap PC usb audio sticks with a c-media chipset and it works fine with the SGS3 too. Here's the dmesg output when I plug it in:
<6>[ 1087.974405] c0 usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0d8c, idProduct=000c
<6>[ 1087.974547] c0 usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
<6>[ 1087.974695] c0 usb 2-1: Product: C-Media USB Headphone Set
A list of USB ID's:
idVendor: 0d8c C-Media Electronics, Inc. [noname USB sound stick, ...]
idProduct: 000c Audio Adapter"
Some USB sound sticks:
"The small stick is very contact-friendly: a stereo output to connect to an active speaker system or head set, a microphone input and an optical digital output leave nothing else to be desired. Enjoying music, films and video games in perfect digital sound quality via your AV system."post #65 of 86536/3/12 at 2:59ampost #66 of 86536/3/12 at 3:01ampost #67 of 86536/3/12 at 5:59amThread StarterQuote:
Nope, I tried via an externally powered hub too as Danba had brought that to my attention. It did cause strange effects to playback speed/skipping when connected that way, based off what the progress bar was doing, but there was still no sound (so it was interfacing with the phone, after a fashion, but still not functional).post #68 of 86536/9/12 at 1:38pmSamsung Galaxy S III interworks with USB DAC/amp FiiO E7:music stored on SGS3 > SGS3 player > digital audio stream >> USB OTG cable >> USB DAC/amp FiiO E7 >> headphonesSamsung Galaxy S III triggers a new era of Hi-Fi for the masses with affordable rig:. affordable (subsidized) smartphone. affordable common USB DAC/amp compliant with PC or Mac, like FiiO E7 (us$80)http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier-Black/dp/B003N0XDT4/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1339194973&sr=8-4]http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-Portable-Headph...39194973&sr=8-4"Clearly, the E7 is priced very competitively, and I consider it a good product — not some cheap Chinese stuff.

confirmed by nztechfreak , SGS3 usb audio support Fiio E7
lets make a list....
- Fiio E7
- Topping TP30
- Fiio E17post #72 of 86536/12/12 at 12:08amList of USB DACs with known USB controller that interwork with Samsung Galaxy S III for the time being:. AMB Labs Gamma2 with USB controller TI Burr-Brown PCM2707. FiiO E7 with USB controller TI Burr-Brown PCM2706. HifiMan Express with USB controller TI Burr-Brown PCM2702. Topping TP30 with USB controller TI Burr-Brown PCM2704List of USB DACs with known USB controller that don't interworking with Samsung Galaxy S III for the time being:. FiiO E17 with USB controller Tenor TE7022. iBasso D6 with USB controller TI TAS1020B. Grant Fidelity TubeDAC-11 with USB controller Tenor TE7022The USB DAC Hegel HD20 with USB controller Tenor TE7022 has also some issue with Linux-powered PC:"I try to connect the HD20 to a computer using Linux Ubuntu. Installation seems fine but there is no sound?On computers using the Linux Ubuntu operatating system you need to go to settings and choose which soundcard you want to use: the internal or the HD20 TE7022."The USB DAC Audiotrak Prodigy Cube with USB controller Tenor TE7022 has also some issue with Linux-powered PC:"PRODIGY CUBE supports Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X.PRODIGY CUBE is not fully compatible with Linux, but it has been confirmed that the TE7022L chipset support.The TE7022L chipset is TENOR's USB controller Chipset.Please understand that we are not able to support your request for Linux because there are a wide variety of choices in Linux version and range."USB DACs with USB controller Tenor TE7022 work perfectly with some Linux setup:What is going on at the Android Linux kernel level, when USB DACs with USB controller Tenor TE7022 don’t interwork with Samsung Galaxy S III?Dmesg log output and lsusb log output could detail what is going on.dmesg:lsusb:post #73 of 86536/15/12 at 12:21pmSGS3 - FiiO E17 Full-Speed / High-Speed switching issue?SGS3 USB driver issue?: some parameters are not well-adjusted?"The host controller directs traffic flow to devices, so no USB device can transfer any data on the bus without an explicit request from the host controller. In USB 2.0, the host controller polls the bus for traffic, usually in a round-robin fashion. The throughput of each USB port is determined by the slower speed of either the USB port or the USB device connected to the port."Powered High-Speed USB 2.0 hub workaround?"High-speed USB 2.0 hubs contain devices called transaction translators that convert between high-speed USB 2.0 buses and full and low speed buses. When a high-speed USB 2.0 hub is plugged into a high-speed USB host or hub, it will operate in high-speed mode. The USB hub will then either use one transaction translator per hub to create a full/low-speed bus that is routed to all full and low speed devices on the hub, or will use one transaction translator per port to create an isolated full/low-speed bus per port on the hub."post #74 of 86536/19/12 at 12:42ampost #75 of 86536/19/12 at 2:32amQuote:My theory of SGS3 Full-Speed / High-Speed switching issue is wrong.The SGS3 interworks with the USB DAC ODAC using the USB controller Tenor TE7022.SGS3 > digital audio stream >> USB DAC "ODAC" >> amp "O2" >> headphoneIt's a very good news. Before, it’s rather depressive that the SGS3 can only interwork with rather old generation USB DACs using the old USB controller Burr-Brown 2xxxx.It’s very interesting that the SGS3 can power the ODAC, which is a USB powered 24/96 DAC, without a powered USB hub.
