It has some pins for dock connection and will charge from the dock.

the advantage of the dock is that you don't need to fiddle with the usb port cover

No worries at all, the smiley was to denote I didn't mean anything by it except to tease a little smily_headphones1.gif

Month old twins here, totally empathise with sleep deprivation.

which version of the S3? the international with the wolfson dac or the u.s. version without?

what are you using at the ear end?

 

the Z1C just manages to power the Ultrasone Sig Pro unamped

i currently have a Sony XBA-H1 and Yamaha EPH-100. also have a Sennheiser IE 80 on the way. do you think any of them will be a problem? it's the impedance that i should be looking at correct? the H1 is 40ohms, while the EPH-100 and the IE 80 are both at 16ohms.

Re: charging.

You can get aftermarket USB cables which use the "charging dock" pins on the side.

 

That is how I'm charging in the car. I only ever open the micro-USB cover when I need to move flac around :)

 

Volume is sufficient with my 1964 ears quad IEM and the Z1C. Loving the form factor and sound from this little thing.

I just bought this phone in australia from our largest carrier 'telstra' and i am sad to say that i love everything about this EXCEPT the sound!
Coming from the htc one x and my daily rig being the NWZ F808 paired with atrio m7s and a headstage amp i noticed that the Z1C not only lacks volume but also bass. The drums and bass lines play with little bass extension, there is virtually no energy in the bass notes with this device. I cant understand why, i haven't heard anything this ridiculous since, well ever. Ive checked all the settings and even used the my go to music app, Gonemad music player with all the equaliser settings adjusted to enhance the bass and volume, still, nothing... Its not just my device though just this model, i checked with all the demo devices at all my carriers stores and they all sound the same.

Any ideas?
