Do we have measurements of both phones somewhere comparing them?

iPhone 5S Measurements

HTC One M8 Measurements

Both from the same measurement rig. RMAA measurements don't tell the whole story, but information is power so... there you go.

Might need to use a translation service.

Should be interesting to see if the iphone 6 improves things when it (probably) lands in a few weeks.

These are unloaded measurements. Hence of little use to explain the performance with headphones attached.

Anyway i have tried the M8 and while good it is not able to match the clarity of the 5s.

i am currently using iphone 5c plus astell and kern ak10 for my current set up while waiting for the ibasso dx90.

the sound with the es700, c5, heaven 6, cl are fantastic!!

 

more instrument separation and soundstage, less the harshness, better clarity and details too!

If there are any iFenceSitters in the US, Verizon has an amazing deal now -- including 32 and 64 GB models. Half price with new contracts. There service is actually reasonable, for the first time I can remember, also.

Hey people,

 

Ive read so many posts here that the sound of the iPhone 5c/5s is outstanding! What I

think is, that its noticeably better than many other devices, even some laptops, but Im

not satisfied with its sound in combination with my HD 25s. I even use sonic max pro,

but the sound is not even close to my stereo system with the HD 25s. I hear a hiss and

the sound is not very full!

 

Does anyone know if I can get a portable device for under 500 bucks with a better sound?

My idea was an old android device, like the Nexus 1 with vodoo sound or a portable DAC/amp.

Which model of HD 25 are you using? And which model of iPhone (5s or 5c)?

 

I'm using HD 25 1-II headphones with the 5s and the sound quality is awesome - full, rich sound and absolutely no hiss whatsoever.
