Galaxy Nexus output impedance?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I asked this question over at XDA, but nobody seems to know. Actually, I have two questions.

 

One is in the title. I'd like to know what the Galaxy Nexus GT-i9250M (maguro, not toro/toroplus) has for output impedance on the headphone jack. I suspect it may not be near-zero... and I am wondering how much it may be degrading the sound of my headphones (13 ohm UE SF5 vi).

 

The other question is... if nobody knows what the maguro's output impedance is, does anyone know how I can measure it?

Hey i know this doesn't have the exact impedance on the nexus, but it does say its one of the loudest smartphones for output and it provides some other stats on SQ.

Scroll to the bottom of this page for the actual stats

hope it helps

I measured mine at 12.5Ω.

Funny enough i can recall a tweet about the time when it came out...none other than Supercurio assessed it's audio performance as surpassing the iPhone/iPad.

 

Fortunately i took his tweet with a huge grain of salt and stuck to my iPhone because 12 ohms for balanced armatures suck big time.
