    Identify DAC in phone?

    Hi, I had a LG V20 with a Quad DAC. I was quite happy with this as an on to go solution. Recently, the phone failed (believe it or not, the phone melted/nearly blew up charging). LGs response has really soured me on their phones, as has their lack of firmware support and (comparatively) bad...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Hi. I have ZS10 Pros. My dog just jumped on me and now I've lost sound on one side. I think he snapped something inside because when I move it around it cuts in and out. Can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement cable? I tried searching but they seem slightly different. I need the...

    I guess being out of the loop on this things means I also don't know much about the politics either. The only info I came across it in my travels was from this review where they mention the founders Li and Yue: https://www.headphonesty.com/2019/05/review-kz-zs10-pro/

    Hey guys, Just want to say thanks again to anyone who helped with suggestions. This is a great thread, and community, for people like me that occasionally dip in and out of the audio field (nor are very audio savy to begin with :p), and as a result aren't up to date on the more obscure, budget...

    Thanks for your thoughts. Hmmm, that’s disappointing. Was looking at the DT6 pretty seriously. Descriptions sounded great, plus the fact it has a piezoelectric driver intrigued me (I have no idea what that is :upside_down: - never heard one. I was curious). So, what, they sound very uninspired...

    Yeah, these will be daily drivers out and about for the phone. It is a good one sound spec wise - LG V20 with the 32bit Quad DAC. It has a high impedance mode (ticks on for North of 50ohms if I remember?) so I think that'll be enough juice? As for the mic cable, yes, I've discovered the more...

    Thanks for the replies guys. So from suggestions we have TRN IM1, TFZ T2 and the DT6. If anyone can give any further insights thatd be appreciated. Oh, and is there a good quality cable I should look into getting? Something good quality and cheap, with Mic/inline controls, that'll improve sound...

    Wondering if anyone can offer some suggestions. My IEMs were destroyed by my overzealous dog. I previously had Xiaomi Hybrids and V20 bundled B&O’s. Looking for something more or less V shaped, but with good resolution, treble, and detail. I listen to mainly rock, alt, metal with some synth...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    Thanks. Davy? I contacted him through the app email. Been very helpful. Sent a log to him. He's saying the wifi is dropping out. The phone is set to keep wifi active though and I've disabled battery optimisations for the app. Not having this problem with other streaming apps though which is...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    Mate, I downloaded this app. Recognised the DAC, turned on bit perfect mode. I'm having an issue though: When using Tidal through the app I keep getting a glitch. Songs will randomly hit a certain spot and skip back continuously. As soon as they hit that spot again it skips back again. It only...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    Thanks for the info. That's good to know. I think confusion stems from this: 'The Quad DAC’s low power mode shuts down three of the four DACs when they’re not needed, to increase battery life when playing lower quality audio or using lower quality headsets. – Ken Hong, global communications...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    Hey guys, I'd appreciate some help if someone could be so kind. I tried searching but I'm getting conflicting info. I have a unrooted H990DS variant (so no Oreo for now). I want to get the best audio fidelity I can out of the phone. I primarily use two headphones: Xiaomi Hybrids and Philips...

    Guys, need a recomendation. Looking for some good quality earbuds that have an impendance over 50. I have an LG V20 phone and you have to have a pair over this range to enable the higher quality DAC. There are workarounds but I'd just like a pair I can plug in and play. I really liked the...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    Hi, wasn't sure what search terms to use. Just want to confirm: the 'quad dac' is used system wide when in hifi mode, or only in the default music app? I've read different things.

    Xiaomi Hybrid IEM Thread (Piston successor)

    Pretty sure they weren't fake. Got mine from geekbuying.com. These lasted the shortest time of any headphone I've had. I liked the sound too which makes it even more annoying.
