Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (24-bit/192KHz) - Page 45

post #661 of 674
You sound like you didn't turn boomsound off because that is exactly how it sounds with it on. Turn if off and it sounds really good. Even better headphone out through a c5d. The USB out is mono though for some reason. I haven't updated my phone yet. Am waiting for the 4.4.4 update before I do.

Hey thread. Is there a tutorial on how to get the best sound out of one's android phone?   My headphones sound amazing and dynamic on my wife's Iphone 4S, but sound muddy on my Samsung Note-3.   Is this due to hardware limits of my Note-3? Or are there settings that I need to set?

 

The headphones in question are the LCD-XC which should be easily driven. My Fischer Audio OldSkool’70’s sound really amazing on my Note-3 though; I highly suggest this pairing of the Note and Fischer OldSkools.

 

 

Currently planning on getting on of the Astell mp3 players. They should be more powerful than my Note-3? right?

If you are rooted, best answer for Note 3 is Viper4Android. It is like adding an amplifier/dac combo. Quite amazing.

Anyone know of a way to increase the analog output of the Note 3? With the amount of bass I EQ to I'm getting clipping and the Note 3 doesn't exactly drive my PortaPros as well as I want. So I'm hoping someone can find a way to increase the gain on the headphone output, which you could do on the Note II and apparently other similar Snapdragon-based devices.

there was a volume boost hack that could be applied to rooted phones back in October when the Note 3 landed. It was on xda. I'd check there.
Personally, I use the Note 3 internal system only for iems when mowing etc for ultra portable and high movement activities only. Otherwise, I have it hooked to an HRT microstreamer when walking to work or something similar, and to a hifi-m8 when stationary at work or home.

Yeah there's a boost like that for KitKat as well but unfortunatly all it seems to do is increase the digital volume which just causes more clipping for me.

Eh I really couldn't roll with that. My Note 3 is already bulky enough with my ZeroLemon battery.

oh wow. I was excited for that battery, then I thought of its brickiness, and stayed stock and got wireless chargers everywhere. House, car, work. Now I rarely drop below 70-80%. I am rarely away from a charger for more than a few hours tho...
If I remember, I'll snap some pics tomorrow of my various setups and how they are still somewhat portable.

I'm still waiting on my FiiO E18 to show up hopefully today. And I'm still trying to decide on which player to use also to root or not.


I use the e18 with my Note 3 and find the combination a match made in heaven. The UE900 also play very well with this combination. I find bass presence and seperation of instruments greatly increased using this set up.

Got some akg k702's arriving tomorrow and my note3 is stock.

 

I'm assuming they won't be much good without an amp, what would you recommend? Will a fiio E18 suffice?

 

I'm using rocketplayer at the moment, would you recommend poweramp or something in its stead?

I rooted and put JasmineRom on mine. Great stable rom and had viper4android on it. Allows so much customization it is unreal. That is what I recommend. Phone warranties are lame in my opinion, so why not break the warranty and use the full potential of your equipment you paid for!
I used to have an e18 and it was solid. Although the straight out cable left much to be desired in terms of durable portability.

Can someone please confirm if FiiO E07k works out of the box (ie for Spotify etc) in full stereo etc (I read before the otg out is mono????)

 

failing that if it works without issue if rooted as likely will do and install viper4android

I have e7 and it works out of box on my wifes stock Verizon note 3.and of course, it works with jasminerom 2.3 which has v4a on my rooted Verizon note 3. :-)
