To be honest, I don't think I'll have the time.

Adding on top of that, I don't have "Golden Ears" haha.

If I do, I'll post up results.

I'm posting this from my Z1 Compact, having sold my A867 last week. To sum up very briefly, it sounds wonderful and happily drives the DT1350s at about 60% volume. With a 64gb memory card added and PowerAmp, this device is ideal.

The phone sounds great with my Sennheiser IE800s.

I received my Sony xperia z1 compact from eglobalcentral.eu. The device has very clean output and non-fatiguing sound quality because of that. It is WAY better than Note3 and g2 in that aspect. 

 

However I have a question regarding the SAR-value of the unit. As they shipped this unit from Hong Kong, I also received a small booklet in the box where it stated that the maximum SAR-value was 0.921 W/kg (10g). When I visited the swedish Sony site I searched for z1 compact SAR and there it stated that the max SAR was 0.73-0.74 W/kg (10g). Why does it differ? Is it because they've tested this unit with a Hong Kong based mobile operator or is it because Sony makes different models for Asia and Europe?

 

If someone has an answer please write it here! :D

I also want to say that the camera is quite a disappointment.

If you have blurry picture, especially when the flash is used, then your Z1 Compact might have suffered from a problem called light leakage. It is a known issue for the early batch of Z1 Compact and you can contact Sony for support. Might be more difficult for you since you got it from HK.

 

SAR listed are probably value tested by the local labs, so it isn't too surprising if they are not the same, as long as the number don't vary by much.

Can anyone compare the sound quality of Z1 Compact with iphone 5s/5c. I'm planning to buy a new phone but this time I want to make sure that sound quality is top notch. Hence I need to choose among Z1 Compact, iphone 5s and iphone 5c

The sound quality is great but volume may be low for people who like listening at high volumes. As far as I know, right now HTC M8 is the best phone for using with headphones.
