    I got the ZTE Axon 7 today. This phone is remarkably fast. I know it's new, but even for a new phone it's incredibly fast.

    How is the software compared to your LG V10?

    Is this the Max or the Mini?

    I love it. Android 7 for it this month. DAC is very capable with UAPP.

    I got the bigger version, 4gb of ram and 64 gb storage.


    I don't think this is an upgrade to the v10 in terms of software, but definitely in terms of speed and price to performance.

    The AK chip is more musical than the ES chip of the V10. I'm terms of dialing it in and technical ability, I give a slight edge to the V10. Still, this Axon 7 is no slouch.

    The V10 has better software design. The processing power of the Axon 7 is dope. It's a blank canvas that is very cusyomizable. The stock Axon 7 keyboard is excellent as well.

    Did Lg ever offer you the new V20 instead? I hear there close in sound just a few other upgrades.

    No, I went through AT&T. They only offered a replacement.

    Nice!
    Why the Beyer pads though?

    Thanks!

    1. Comfort on the original pads were not good for me.
    2. They look much better.
    3. Sound is identical to stock AFAIK.
    4. I had them lying around :wink:

    These does certainly give me thoughts about how much (or rather little) full sized headphones has developed the last decades.....

    Stax would almost certainly be electrostatic, which is entirely different from planar magnetics like HiFiMan.

    True dat-in speakers all these wide diaphragm units, stats like Martin Logan, or planar magnetics, like Magnepan, were loosely called planars, if I remember correctly, but I guess in headphones the Stax still are referred to as electrostatic only, not planars, or so it seems.
