Sorry, maybe it looked like this, i really did not mean it. The point is that so much ode singing i heard towards Samsung and HTC everywhere - I just wanted to drag people's attention to something different. It was emotional, yes, but not rude - believe me. I don't like this.

 

Anyway, now I sold my two smartphones and was looking for dual-SIM phone with more or less decent sound. I've bought Alcatel Idol X+, it was almost the only choice (because I also meant about 5", good battery). Though, I am not sure Senheiser IE80 I owe now is the best earbuds choice for it...

Have you tested them all yourself? If so, then you have confirmed the many forums I've read about it. I guess I'm going to have to get an iPhone 5S.. Damn.

I found a thread about Nexus 5 being dead silent even with high sensitivity IEM.

People really seem to like it. I cant confirm becouse I dont have high sensitivity IEMs :D

(But its really killer deal compared to iPhone or any samsung or htc flagship phone)

the LG G2 was the first phone w/ 24 bit 192Khz audio playback. There are only 3 cells that have this including the new LG G3..which is the main reason I got it. I think the HTC m8 and the nokia Lumia sound great for external speakers, but for headphones I decided on the G3 because I'm not going to blare my smartphone music out in public and if I'm home I'm not about to listen to a smartphone when I can fire up a much nicer system. At work I use headphones and can use my phone which sounds fabulous.

Gsmarena mentions that the htc one mini 2 has even better audio than the M8 itself. Can someone confirm this please? Seriously considering it since my htc m7 got stolen.

Just want to confirm. I have VSD3 which hiss on my laptop and my iPod 5.5 but dead silent on my N5...

I have main requirement for my phone - sound quality.

I had HTC One S (beats), tested iPhone 5, Samsung S3, tested Nexus 5... now I own Oppo Find 5.

 

Oppo Find 5 have the best sound amplifier, clarity and body. Of course, You are bound to use Dolby/Dirac HD mode in native Color OS for this performance.

 

iPhone 5 just about as good, as Oppo 5, with some difference in terms of sound presentation.

HTC really does make some good audio quality phones.

I bought the 816 for 199 usd when it first came out, put Neutron on it, Poweramp treble dial didn't work but could be adjusted through the equalizer, I dumped it in favor of Neutron. Audio quality is so much better on the HTC, better than the clip+ and my Cowan D2. Quad core, plus the phone will take a 128gb micro sd. Never lags, stutters etc. And you can make calls on it but you won't want to. 5.5 inch screen and battery that lasts all day and then some.

Are there any results on the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact? I was planning on driving a Fischer Amp FA-3E (20 Hz - 17,5 kHz, 17 Ohm, 114Db) without using an Amp. I don't like having additional gear on me when I'm busy throughout the day.

Neutron is way too good to ignore it, everybody should use it!
