SAmsung galaxy note 2 - Page 31

post #451 of 471
Sorry for posting in a thread that probably contains my answer a 100 times over. I'm new to all this and thread this size is hard to get to grips with. Even using the search function.

How do I get the best from my fiio e7 amp, note 2 and my monster miles davis headphones?

Thanks

Maybe I should have been more specific. Is there a micro usb to 3.5mm connector I can buy to make use of the amp? atm I'm using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm connector to make use of my amp. Also what's this about rooting the phone to make use the voodoo sound app?

There is no straight USB-3.5mm cable, there cannot be as a DAC would have to be in that chain as only digital audio is output via the USB port.

 

Best plan is to use a USB OTG cable and use the DAC and amp in the E7. Best cable would be one like the mini USB to micro USB OTG adapter, Toxic cables sell them.

OK thanks mate. So one of these, and then something like this? The e7 line in is a 3.5mm headphone jack.

OK thanks mate. The trouble is, in order to connect the e7 to my phone I need a 3.5mm jack. As that's what it takes. So I'll need a cable that one side has a male micro usb (phone) and the other side a male 3.5mm jack(fiio e7).

 

Am I confusing things? Seriously new to all this stuff.

 

EDIT

I've also downloaded a trail vervsion of 'USB Audio Player'. I take it I'll need that or another of it's kind?

The E7 has a Mini USB input, connect to that with the cable I mentioned. No need for 3.5mm connection at all from phone to E7.

aarr okay. Just unplugged it from my E9 and saw it. :D

You think an external device like E7 is really needed or a Note 2 + Eizo Rewire is sufficiently good?

So do all variants have the same dac and sq?

As I read before the EU and Asia Note2 are equiped with a Exynos SOC and a dedicated Wolfson DAC, the US version is a Snapdragon SOC with a build-in DAC.

So US variants have crappy SQ?


anyone Kno of a android phone with a good DAC and good SQ?

At the moment I'm keeping my "old" 3G Note2 and I have an unlimited 4G subscription, just to say, I don't want to regret and miss the acceptable output that I have today with Viper4Android and the Wolfson Note2, I'm looking for a Fiio X5 to complement it ...

 

But if you need a new phone, only the Asian Galaxy S5 will have a dedicated Wolfson DAC, the latest HTC or Sony can be also an alternative.
