iPhone 5C and 5S: audio output - Page 11

post #151 of 367
I assume it is normal, but anyone get some quiet clicks and static on plugging in IEMs to the 5S? I get that for ~3 seconds on first plugging in.

Trying to squeeze more battery life out.

As mentioned, impendance issues could be causing it - I don't know. Since you seem to be the only one with these findings, maybe your 5S has a glitch or a fault. Again, I don't know but peoples findings are not up to you to deny. 
At the end of the day, I agree it's an awesome phone & I'm getting great results with higher z phones & thats all that really matters to me.
Peace.


Ok, let me change my statment. My iPhone 5S has weaker amp section and higher output impedance than my iPhone 4. YMMV

I get a few seconds of static sometimes, usually after I pause the music.

My 5s goes way louder than my 4s - like 4s maxed out -> 5s has still 4-6 clicks to go louder.

 

Weird thing is that the 5s "volume overlay" goes yellow for one click at about 60% and then red. I've never seen this color coded overlay before. I would say the first red dot is about as loud as the 4s is going - but there are like 5 more red dots to go.

 

I can only guess that this has something to do with some EU regulations. I think they are enforced on the 4s but somehow inactive on the 5s.

It really goes painfully loud - I basically cannot max it out without my ears falling off. On my 4s i listend at maxed out volume all the time - no problem.

 

EDIT: there is in fact a "EU Volume Limit" toggle in the 5s settings - when activated levels are about the same. I'll check if the toggle is present on my 4s but i'm pretty sure it's not.

Yes there is toggle for EU in iOS7. Check your 4S if is on, because my 4 is louder than my 5S. In iOS 6 it is a max volume slider and in iOS7 is a toggle.

On my European iOS 6 iPhone 4S this is the screen:

It's louder than the iOS 6 iPhone 5 i used to have (with EU limit toggled off).

Good to know it is normal.

Yesterday my 5S hung backing up and decided after that to resync all my music... Not sure if it is an iTunes, iOS or hardware thing. Did it again today.

exactly.

 

As I expected this option is not present on the 4s!

 

I've no permissions to post pics.. so here's a link:

To clarify: the 4s goes as loud as the 5s with EU Limit turned on. So my 5s is in fact way louder.

I've crashed it a few times, which was a new experience since owning a few older models and not having them crash once, but it just restarted. No blue screen.

Watching the discussion here with interest guys, very interesting stuff. Thinking the 5S could be a good pairing with my T5p with the Euro volume restriction turned off...
