I am using a Galaxy S4 and I am not a big fan of the sound at all. I was thinking maybe I could get a small usb Dac rather than purchasing a DAP.
I am using the S4 with the e12(AMP) and e18(DAC) right now. I tried the E12 with the S4 and no dac, the sound was loud, but the bass was a little sloppy and the mids were drowned out. I then hooked up my E18 for the DAC and everything cleared up. The bass got tighter, the mids/vocals cleared up, and the highs felt faster. I would highly recommend getting a good DAP or DAC then pair it with the E12. The S4 can get loud, but it is not clean compared to using external DAC.
