Dear fellow headphone geeks,
Let me start by introducing myself as this is my first topic here. I am a long-time lurker of the forum, bought and advised many people based on topics here, and am fascinated by the amount of knowledge present. Thank you for gathering so much research and personal opinions about every convincible product! I am a non-native English speakers, so I would like to apologize for any spelling mistakes in advance.
I am looking for a way to stream music to my Ultimate Ears UE900 IEM’s from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – either music on the 64GB SD card, or trough Spotify. I want a Bluetooth connection in order to not suffer from cable-management issues while commuting the city, exercising, whatever really. I would like to be able to make phone calls through the receiver as well
I did some research, and according to my current plan I need to buy the following two things:
- - A drastically shorter cable
- - A Bluetooth receiver with aptX and a microphone
The aptX part is rather limiting my options. However we are audiophiles, and while I realize that I’d be giving up some audio fidelity, I would like to have the best possible sound quality.
So far this is the best Bluetooth receiver I could find: http://www.myblueant.com/products/headphones/ribbon/. Do you guys have any opinion or experiences with it? How for example is the DAC? One reason I like the Note 3 is it’s excellent sound output.
So far I have been unable to find a shorter cable. If anybody does find one, I would greatly appreciate a link on where I can purchase one. Also, do cable quality differences really matter in terms of real-life audio quality?
