The good news is that the 2013 Android handsets never hiss and have a pitch black background.
The Note 3 and the S4 Active with the UM3x sounded phenomenal!
Optimism is the depth of technical ignorance
this hiss you talk about - were you using neutron or something? probably not (i'm picturing you standing there next to a cellphone salesman listening to music and i find it hard to believe you're downloading neutron onto the display units)
but i am getting the hiss only with neutron. aside from the hiss, to get neutron to sound decent, i have to go into audio hardware settings and disable the generic driver. however, the hiss is there and it is pretty ridiculous. it must be a bug.
weird thing is i don't hear this hiss on the included music app.
my g2 is on the current 4.4.2 update - possible the issue was there before and they have fixed it somehow when using the included music app.
this is on a 400MB 24/96 track through the LG G2 on my UE iems. i'm finding it also sounds great with my grado sr325i (though could use just a little more power)
i came on here to find if anyone else is having issues with neutron on the G2. i am in need of a suitable app since neutron is simply not going to cut it.
my thoughts - i'm impressed with the g2 through good headphones on the included music app. it isn't as good as playing my music through my laptop - 24/96 optical through my anaconda d12 and grado sr325i, but it is now the next best thing (out of any other combination i am not going to bore you all with). i'm happy, but i admit i wasn't expecting much after being disappointed with previous androids/iphones with or without amps.
