2012 Macbook Air equal to iPhone 4s?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have 2012 Macbook air and recently I tried to compare Macbook air's sound quality with Clip+ and I could not find much difference

 

Is 2012 Macbook air's sound quality equal to iPhone 4s? Anybody get a chance to compare sound quality?

I have an iPhone 4S right now and I think it has a really good headphone out.  While I currently own an Macbook Retina, I used to have the Macbook Air 13" 2011 model and I don't think it was as good - high noise floor and a lack of detail.

 

Noticing the differences really depends on what kind of headphones you have.  I don't think you'll notice the difference with the Porta Pros (although I love those headphones) but you should if you use your HD-650 or the T70 assuming they can be driven to similar volume levels. 

 

If you don't notice a difference, consider yourself very lucky.  Enjoying the music is much more important than worrying if your source is "good" enough.
