iPhone 4 vs. Wolfson Android phones - Page 3

post #31 of 36

Don't get me wrong. I'm not blasting amps or their owners in the least. I'm just saying that the iphone is a beast of a source, so I don't hear any improvements with an amp.

I like my iPhone too =)
What's funny is that to me, the iPhone 4 an the Clip + are pretty damn flat, but I hear the Clip as warmer, so I don't know what I could attribute that to.

Ok ok, to get back on topic, |joker| have you gotten to spend any more time with the XBA-1? My mothers birthday is coming up and she actually want me to buy her headphones lol, but not spend too much. And ever since she figured out the Internet, I can't just buy her something more high end and tell her it was like 50 bucks.

Oh. I was more curious about any possible difference between maximum volume levels and the power a source puts through to the IEM. Is it the same thing?

Samsung Galaxy S, all models (other brandings include Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate, Indulge)

Samsung Galaxy K

Samsung Galaxy U

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0

Samsung Nexus S (also 4G variant)

Samsung Infuse 4G

Samsung Exhibit 4G

Samsung Continuum

Samsung Epic 4G

Samsung Droid Charge

Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G by Samsung

LG Optimus 2x/G2x

Asus Eee Pad Transformer

 

 

Other devices with the WM8994 that do not support Voodoo Sound (would also be useful for comparison):

 

LG Optimus Black

Motorola Atrix 4G

Motorola Photon 4G

Motorola Droid Bionic

Toshiba Folio 100

Any other device I may have missed that uses the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor

 

So if something could be found in the way of a graph for one of these phones, Voodoo or no, we would have a much more accurate comparison given what TD originally expressed.


I don't know if the Voodoo thing is compatible or not, but I just found an iFixit page where they did a teardown of my Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, and they found a Wolfson Microelectronics WM8994 (Audio Codec) inside of it....So I guess now I  too am an audiophile! 6c2ba386.gif

 

Edit.....maybe not. I think the teardown is actually the original Galaxy Tab....
