I can easily say which one is which on a blind test.
Have you done a blind test? How was it performed? Most people would not be able to perform this due to a lack of equipment, therefore I'm curious as to how you did it.

Infact it’s not about loudness.

I have not mentioned anything about loudness, therefore I think you don't understand the data that has been provided in the previous post. If you need help understanding it, please feel free to ask.

This is hardly the place to discuss scientific methods. You can check out the sound science part on this forum for that if you're interested in it.

Noted. However, the "I know it's better cos I can hear it, innit" statements on another manufacturers thread is rather obnoxious and needs to be pointed out.

I have a noobie question as someone who have never used a dongle or a very powerful dongle like the 9038S G3.

How could I adjust the volume of the 9038S g3 on Android phones for sensitive iems? I imagine it being very crude and bothersome.
Is there a specific app to control the dongle gain?

Or you can use the instructions from this file to limit the maximum volume:

Very cool settings I saw!.

But does it remember them or do I have to open the app every time I need to set the gain or choose my favorite filter?

You do realize it's pretty pathetic that you're trying to tell someone he doesn't hear what he says he hear when comparing two items you've never heard, lmao.
What's to hear? Two items which are audibly indistinguishable to human hearing Mr. Johnny 5 star reviews? Lol. Sure, you can have a preference. Nothing wrong with that. Is it because one is "better" than the other? No. It's purely subjective. That's always been my point. Nothing more and nothing less.

I agree it's weird to discuss in this thread if you don't have not heard an E1DA lol
I have. Not the 9038D. But what's to hear? It is better than my hearing ability.

What’s your point of discussion. Since you think you know it already, are you just here to gatekeep? Start educating the whole forum then since you haven’t heard any of the devices mentioned here, you can may be bash sennheiser hd 800s or focal clear tmw as according to your asr university they don’t measure well without eq. If you don’t own this , I don’t get why you channeled all your gatekeeping here in this thread.

I'm waiting for my 9038S 3gen and I'm heard something about that is not plug&play unit and hard to set the volume cause some reason. Is it true ?
Not true, but best to ask for details on the E1DA Discord rather than here (you will need to upgrade the 9038s firmware and add the Tweak app to your phone if you want to do things like control maximum volume).
