Currently I am still using my Droid X (They promised me lifetime unlited Data at Verizon and they are now trying to back out if I change phones so I have been hangin on like grim death) and it its barely does anything I ask of it within 10 mins, especially call somebody.
I am just beginning to tip my toes into the amazing world Audiophile Headphone listening (I was once long ago a budget Audiophile Speaker guy (Gallo Nucleus Solos /Muse 160/ Pss500/ Arcam 9 CD) but my outfit has long since been sold). In the Welcome Newbie section someone was kind enough to point me towards picking up a pair JVC HA-s500 for portable use and despite my gawd awful Droid X source I love the headphones and am constantly shocked by the price/performance ratio. On a wonderful suggestion I also picked up a pair of AKG Q701's that I use with the headphone jack on my Outlaw 1050 amp sourced by ripped wavs (or HDtracks wavs) streamed via s/pdif from My computer. I have been extremely pleased with the massive performance per $1 upgrade I have received from these purchases.
So I come back to my original question for you the very helpful and knowledgeable folks at head-fi. Seeing how streaming audio from a phone to a good external DAC is still not possible from a phone right now what phone should I buy to maximize my listening enjoyment. I have heard talk of Wolfson Dacs in some models but I'm not sure which ones and I'm am currently a little overwhelmed with info. I wish could bypass the whole issue and buy a Astell & Kern AK120 and use a phone for a phone and an audio source for an audio source but that is not in my budget sadly. Given no other requirements what phone should I buy if it is going to be my primary portable listening source (primarily with the JVC HA-s500s).
As always thanks for your time and expertise.
