8cm, Silver, If my memory serves me right
A downmix would requite a valid multichannel processing at the top of the signal chain.
My thoughts point into the following direction: a possibility to play 5.1 with a determined 5.1 to 2.0 processing like Dolby Headphone or much better the way a Smyth Realizer works, casted in a software algorithm.
I checked it out by myself with a set of test files.
It plays FLAC (not WAV) 5.1 24/192 with mixdown.

Question 1: is the dac of note 3 good enough? Does it distort music often?
Question 2: I like a slight u-shaped sound. Would a tubey amp + warm CIEM + note 3 sound muffled to me?
Thanks for your help guys!

Btw: Is this thread about Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or any other stuff like tube amps, matching mostly any other audio output capable device?
I could tell the question: Does the head phone XYZ fit my head when attached to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3? ;)

Woah woah woah there sorry if I offended you by asking a question. I assumed this thread has note 3 owners and that they are familiar with it's sound thus they could give a simple advice.

Note 3 with Dragonfly is the real deal now- fellow member discovered using UAPP allows the volume to be separate from the Note, letting it be more than loud enough whereas before (under the Note's volume control) it did not.
Great combo. The only negative is it drains the battery a little faster vs. a unit that has a built in battery.
After I upgraded my N900 Exynos to KitKat 4.4.2, l suddenly noticed its music sound kicked ass. l was really amazed to find out it sounds totally different than before: the sound has become more natural, with a solid and punchy bass, and superior imaging. Before the upgrade I had bought a pair of Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear, which disappointed me so much that I stopped wearing them. After the upgrade l wondered why my daily driver Monster Turbines started to sound so much better, and tried the Momentum OE on again... Wow
thats interesting - I've had my phone a week and initially was very disappointed with anything played via stock player - including Spotify (which I think plays "through Android" so to speak), yet Poweramp and Neturon sounded pretty good
Spotify and others though - sounded weak, poor - not great compared to my Iphone 4
well this morning got my KitKat upgrade to my Note 3 (UK version) and I'm sure, near positive that Spotify now sounds far far better - it was immediately noticeable
it now sounds as good - if not better than my Iphone 4
either before Spotify wasn't syncing at "extreme quality" properly, or KitKat has definitely changed the way the "DAC" is addressed from the OS
also odd I'd describe change in sound almost same as you nallyvaico
before in Spotify - there was very little stereo imaging, highs and mids sounded "coarse" and bass was there but had no clout whatsoever - gave impression of bass more than actually produced any
now its almost the opposite, bass is punchy but not overblow, the coarse-ness has gone, and the stereo imaging is far wider
since I don't believe in "Burn-in" - I can only think something has changed
Does stock player down samples audio on qualcomm version of Note 3?
Sorry to answer this from youTim
All you need is an otg cable
