Anyway, so you're saying I should invest on a amp first and skip the DAC, even though the Galaxy S4 has a horrible DAC?
Thanks for your replies guys.
No no, many say the CAL 2 is worse than the CAL 1, or the very least not worth the price increase between the 2.
Most who have listened to both will say the the CAL! 1 is a straight upgrade from the JVS s680, other than in bass quantity.
About the DAC vs amp, both are fairly important imo, these headphones technically shouldn't be in dire need of an amp with its low impedance, though my isolated experience differs.
