This chart...well this chart shows that an iPhone (from 3Gs on) literally trumps the Galaxy constellation when driving low impedance earphones. And it trumps it badly unless loads are from 32 ohms on.
For 16 ohms stuff it's not even close.
Check iPhone RMAAs from goldenears driving a 16 ohm load.
Yeah, but for one goldenears and this guy has different equipment, so it's better if both devices are measure on the same equipment. Second, iphone 5 has much higher output impedance than the S4 and that makes a difference for multi BA headphones. Third, these values are not even close to audible range, and both are flat. I'd be more concerned with output impedance if you have low impedance multi BA iems. Hopefully, you don't think iphones are audibly better based on SS device measurements.

Actually i looked for numbers to explain the stunning clarity of iPhones i tried against the hint of fuzziness and congestion the S4 left my with.
And used ba iems (UM3x, SE530, Westone 3).
idevices handling low impedances are good beyond belief. To my ears at least.
