Htc One - Page 16

post #226 of 520

I am interested in the HTC One partly because of it's ability to be used with a portable DAC. I really could care less about how it sounds out of the headphone jack since I would use it with my E17 as a transport. I just wish Verizon would get it, or a variant of it. Maybe Verizon will get a red one with expandable memory.

I had an Iphone for 1 year and the Sound was the best ive ever listened to.

 

It was an Iphone 4s and the Sound quality was 100% important of my choice.

 

Now i want to move to the HTC One because of the New "Boomy" Sound and in other things it is really a powerful Smartphone.

 

What do you think? Is the HTC One in Sound quality on the same level like an Iphone 4s.

 

Listened to it with the Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10, which is a great Multiple Drivers in Ear.

 

I hpoe you can help my decision, when I know that the HTC beats the Iphone in Sound quality now, or is the same, I would definitely buy the HTC One.

 

Im excited to know which one is better :)

Do u think with a portable dac like Fiio e6, it would be my configuration, i could get the linear Iphone sound? 

 

Somebody said the HTC One sounds fatiguing?

The E6 isn't a DAC, it's just an amp. The HTC One can actually feed the E17 with a digital signal and let the E17's DAC do the decoding, and then let the E17's amp do the amping. Which means the HTC One would just be a transport.

What im interested in is the Sound quality now, between Iphone and Htc One, when I know htc one is more worse than Iphone, i would definetly go for the Iphone, because im audiophile, the sound is really important for me, so the source for my Ultimate Ears.

Yea, I know what question you want answered. I was just stating that even if the headphone jack does indeed not sound that great, that the One can be used with a USB DAC instead. For me I really prefer full size cans, so I don't have a problem carrying around a small amp/DAC. I already carry and use my E17 with my iPhone 4 since my iPhone doesn't power my T50rp well enough on it's own. So I was just saying that for me personally it doesn't matter to me as long as the One will work with a DAC, which it indeed does do.

The sound out of the headphone jack is perfectly fine if you have efficient headphones.

Also make sure your headphone's impedence is greater than ~20ohms as there is very faint signal noise and more sensitive headphones may exaggerate them significantly (Sony XBA-4 for example).

Does that mean, the sound quality can be put in a same place like the Iphone 5's one?

I haven't tried the iPhone 5, but it does sound better than the iPhone 4 and especially the Galaxy S2 to my ears.

post #235 of 520

Well, the iPhone 4 supposedly sounds better than the 5 according to most who have heard both, so...

E17 and the E7 work fine.

I have had the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. The HTC One is better than all of them. The HTC also has better Bluetooth audio as it had the apt-x codec for very high quality Bluetooth stereo.
