Nexus 5 Sound Quality? - Page 12

post #166 of 173
I was surprised with how good the N5 sounds. Didnt expect much from it honestly but it delivers. Im using it with the k545.

I'm using Poweramp on my Nexus 5 and my T-Peos H-300 and it gives a perfect pairing.

HTC one M8 or original HTC one trump all phones as far as speaker quality.

I have phonaks pfe 122, etymotic er4pt and aurvana live - and compared to galaxy s3 the sound N5 produces is horrible. I have been dissatisfied with it to such an extent that I've bought fiio x3

Nexus 5 has a very mediocre sound quality (I used it with fiio e18 and the Sennheiser momentum).The s3,4 and htc oneX are faaaaaar superior.

i wouldnt say the N5 was horrible.  i mean its a phone so dont expect the world.  it is however not a warm sounding device so if you like a warm dap, its not really it.  tbh as phones go in the few that i have heard id say its one of the less bad.

 

(note that i really dont go out of my way to try phones for audio, they are all convergence devices and none of them really care about audio quality)

Any recommendations on a portable amp to pair with the N5 along with my Dunu DN1000?

Also I noticed all Avril Lavigne songs seem to be sibilant. Any way to tone it down?
