I went to apple store on Friday to try audio out this is in UK. The output from my memory when tried iP6 it sound the same. So i've maxed out the volume and was happy nothing overpowering. so not sure why Apple decided to add so many Cirrus chips.
 
Also the output might be low because of EU Volume Limit? I did check the setting and the limit was Off.

I am currently using iPhone 6S+ 128GB. Its sound quality, especially in upper bass and mids, is considerably better than iPhone 6+ - but it does not in any way affect the treble. Still some way to go for the iPhone to beat my AK240, but it is pretty impressive for a mobile phone. As far as iPhones are concerned, the best one I had in terms of sound quality was iPhone 4. Too bad I don't have it any more so I can't compare. I also have the Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge Plus, but it is no rival to iPhone 6S+ (or even iPhone 6+).

Samsung and androids are with integrated DAC, and they are known to be....not too well received. The only one that stood out alright was Xperia Z3....but output is nothing compare to iPhones....now the iPhone 6s with 3DAC....insane. How does it compare to AK jr ? Because just at the level of AK jr will be worth it.

Audiophiles quality and smartphone together that can stream stuff too :D

Oh and don't mention Samsung Exynos....they are a joke of a joke

My first impression is my 6s plus has much better imaging vs my 6 plus.


Oh common....you gotta be more than that. Did you try HD streaming ? And or ALC files ? How does it sound ? Especially the trebles, is the tonality well received with good extensions ? Common....I want more :D thanks

The previous IPhones and IPad don't do too bad, but that was 1 DAC....now with 3X DAC? It better be at the least 2X as good

i have tried galaxy note 4 with exynos chipset and neutron music player with my mdr-1rbt and bose soundtrue, the SQ is very good.  I have also tried G3 but note 4 is slightly better. I tried xperia tx, the sound is very clean but low volume. xperia z3 and z2 are disappointing. iphone 6 for me is just a good output.
