Neither of them has the Wolfson DAC.


SM N900 Exynos has the Yamaha YMU 831B.


SM 9005 Snapdragon 800 has Qualcomm's WCD9320 17500 Audio Codec.

This is my choice, and I am not saying the snapdragon is better in SQ.

 

What kind of micro USB to micro USB connector is that? Would love to get one. Thx

But you should be better off with this feature on, while travelling. As for home use, you shouldn't expect the ultimate sound from the phone, no phone beats a decent DAP. Although I very much like the sound of Note 3 and S4, they don't come close to my Cowon D2+. And there are much better players on the market. Why not stick with one of those? I think we tend to demand way too much from phones.

 

Yeah for something that retails for $600+ I think demanding is perfectly fine.. I mean they make like $400 per unlocked phone sold.

 

Reasons why I don't use my DAP (Sony F807) (and the main reasons why I bought my Note 3) is because 1) screen is too small, 2) it dies quickly when the screen is on, 3) it's a pain when you have 3 things in your pocket (i.e. phone, DAP, wallet).

 

I do think my Note 3 does sound better than my F807 anyways though. I haven't actually tested side-by-side by in like the month I've had the Note 3 but I haven't really found a need to. Soundstage sounds larger (which is by far my favorite property of any headphone) and the only real con I hear is that there's hiss, though it isn't very noticeable. My music easily masks it. Compared to my old phone, the hiss is basically nonexistant.

 

The other thing I don't like though is that I cannot drag and drop straight from iTunes into my Note 3's external SD card music folder. With my F807 I was always able to drag and drop (it acted like all my iTunes music was in one folder and copied as if it was, rather than by Artist, which is how I have the iTunes folders sorted).

 

I also wish Samsung gave up AMOLED honestly and switched to LCD hahaha. The G2/Nexus 5's screen looks pretty amazing IMO when compared to the Note 3.

"someone told me N9000 has more detail than N9005"

Thank you. You have the link for the Toxic cable? I went to their website and can't find it. Taobao won't work for me. I'm in the U.S.

The Snapdragon supports 24 bit too.

 

Cant comment on the "detail" bit but I use Powramp and Neutron with EQ and the Note sounds just fine with a lot of iems.

Really? - I love the deep blacks that AMOLED can do - and, if in professional screen mode, colour saturation is fine...

 

Makes the HTC One look positively washed out!

Yeah the deep blacks are amazing. The main thing I like about AMOLED. The colors just seemed more "popping" to me on the G2 though, ironically enough.

I was hoping that others could give some feedback regarding the sample rate at which audio files are played via USB Audio.

I tested both the T-mobile and Verizon variants of the Note 3 with the HRT Music Streamer II+, which has a sample rate indicator.  I found that both variants behaved the same.

When playing 96/24 music files with the stock player, the 96k indicator would be lit on the HRT MS II+.

When playing 44.1/16 music files with the stock player, the 48k indicator would be lit on the HRT MS II+.

 

I tested UARP with the Verizon Note 3 and found that the 96k indicator is lit on the HRT MS II+ when playing 96k content.  I found that with UARP, the 44.1k indicator was lit on the Verizon Note 3 when playing 44.1k content.

 

The Note 2, for comparison, when playing both 96/24 and 44.1/16 files, the 44.1k indicator would be lit on the HRT MS II+.  If using UARP on the Note II, then 96k content would yield a 96k indicator on the HRT MS II+.

This suggests to me that the Note 3 is using resampling to output content at 48k, but is able to play high resolution audio at 96k without resampling.

 

Has anybody found their Note 2 to play 44.1k content without resampling without having to use UARP?

This was reported with the GS4s also, including the Wolfson DAC model.
