    So I'm pretty new to all of this and am just learning about how everything goes...but part of my biggest issue with onboard cell phone audio is the lack of volume. With my S8, I'm basically maxing all of my ear buds/headphones which come in between 30-65ohms and really wanting more to be there.

    I'd REALLY like to be able to have some extra headroom to where I'm listening to my music at about 70% of the max volume or even lower. I'm imagining that a Fiio unit(Q1 or E10k) would be a non-issue with this, but what about smaller "usb" type dac/amp units? What could I realistically expect out of them in terms of increasing volume output? Would I be disappointed or is there going to be a lot of improvement with extra volume?

    I'm looking at maybe getting this in particular: https://hifimediy.com/DACs/ready-made-dacs/Sabre-9018-Type-C-DAC
