Because you have a smartphone with a decent output you can perhaps be satisfied with it for driving the earphones you own.Sometimes i want quit this hobby. Some people say DAPs are always better than smartphones. And its make me feel like if i get a DAP i just like say "woow i glad to bought it." and my flacs sounds better on a DAP. I have lg v30 and fischer dba-02 and planning upgrade with earsonics velvet and zx300a. But some people like you saying some DAPs are not worth it to buy when if we compare with smartphones. What should i do? Idk its complicated and i think it wont change until i test on my ears. And one more thing, i can buy ibasso dx200 but i have to wait for it because i havent that much money. Are there any big SQ differences between dx200 and zx300? Should i wait dx200 or buy the ZX300?
Thanks for all reader and replier.
Personally I don't like the idea of using my phone all the time for music because I don't want to run the battery down and I don't want any disturbance from notifications or the constant running android processes. Also I like the side buttons as I frequently skip tracks.
Owning a dap makes me feel like I have a hobby and I have something specialised. Like dazzerfong stated in a post above, having a dap like the ZX300 will give you the ability to one day drive more demanding headphones if you decide on something new, also you can use it as a dac out of your pc and even bluetooth with other devices like a tv adding value to it.
People make bold statements that support their rigid beliefs and needs and that can sometimes make it hard to decide, perhaps you can ask yourself if your phone will keep you happy, thus saving you money and stress choosing gear, or if you really want to achieve a better level of sound and will benefit from the other functions and capabilities of a dap like the ZX300.
I don't know about iBasso daps, but Fiio have some great options at varying prices.
