Anyone knows if moto x supports USB otg? I don't want to have to spend that much on a portable amp since I work from home and wouldnt use it that much. Maybe just to listen in bed before I sleep.

My moto x is on 4.4.2. and probably will get updated to 4.4.3. because of known battery drain issues.  I need someone with kitkat to confirm it working.  But the usb otg should work in theory, but who knows.   These upgrades sometimes breaks more things than it fixes.

I see your concern.  As klam stated a few posts ago though, there should be no reason you will lose OTG support with the update, since already available on 4.4.2.

Has no one still tried this with the HTC One?

post #171 of 202
It's working with HTC One, stock ROM 4.4.2 even without UAPP or UARP.

Has anyone tried the E18 with the Xperia Z1 Compact?

I'm looking to get this phone so I'd like to know if it works, preferably with stock setup (without rooting or installing cyanogenmod)

Thanks

HTC One with Sennheiser PXC-450 Noise Cancelling

 

Looking for some advice. 

 

I own these over these ear noise cancelling phones.  Spec'd at 450 ohms active mode / 150 ohms in passive.

Since I will get 99% of my use on airplanes, they'll be in active (noise cancelling) mode unless I run out of batteries.

 

Given this information, would I be better off using the internal sound card on the HTC One and getting the massive grunt of the E-12...

Or, will the E-18 supply plenty of gain and control and be superior in SQ becasue of its DAC?

I've read that the HTC One sound card is pretty good (mind you, this only in comparison to other cell phones).

Perhaps the high 450 impedance of these phones is non-issue because this is only when they are in active mode and their iternal electronics are engaged (just guessing).

 

Right now, with phones plugged straight into cell phone, they lack warmth, bottom end lacks heft, and volume is always near max. on both cell and headphones.  (Despite reviews I've read that these headphones were a bit bass heavy).

 

All praise ta dose wit da knowledge.

Oh, FLAC apps recommendations for this cell phone would be welcome -- Thanks

post #175 of 202
I can't help you with your first query I'm afraid. If you're looking for an android player which deals with FLAC well, they all do. Neutron has the best sound quality.

Does anyone, have advice on which FiiO for HTC One given my usage above ?

Just as an FYI, I just got my Galaxy S5 and it works flawlessly with it. :)

I just tried it with the HTC One M8, works over USB OTG. I imagine you're asking about the M7 because of your post date, though. :redface:

Hello Buddy,

 

What is the best matching audiophile headphones for E 18.

 

I have been looking at HD 650/hd700; HE400/HE 500; LCD 2. Or are these headphones too heavy to be driven by E 18. If so which portable amp should i look for?

 

I use galaxy note 3 kitkat 4.2 version. as a source will it work with E 18.

 

Is it better to buy E 12 or E 18.

 

Please reply... look forward. Cheers!
