Hi every body
 
i was considering buying a cowon x7 for it's excellent audio quality that every body is describing (as i am a musician & want the best on a budget) ... but i also wanna a new phone so my question is does the S3 having the Wolfson chip can be compared to the cowon x7 in terms of audio quality without any tweaks or EQ ?
 
Thanks

I haven't heard that particular Cowon, but I would expect it to out-perform the SGS3 soundwise (happy to be corrected).  
 
It's not really a fair comparison, though.  The SGS3 (international version) has good sound for a phone, and has the added benefit of supporting many external DAC/amps via USB.  I'm generally quite happy with the headphone output and love the fact that I can scale up the sound whenever I like.

Thanks for your reply Kindoji.... will if you heard any cowon please tell me how much do the sound excel the S3 in quality terms ( i'm a classical & jazz maniac so instruments separation is a must)
 
thanks

If you get the international version of the Galaxy S3 then it'll be amazing like the galaxy S.  (Wolfson DAC inside).  Sadly, the USA version doesn't have it :frowning2:  neither does the Canada version I believe. 
 
It'll probably be as good as the Galaxy S2....(not stellar but still pretty good).

NZ,
 
Can we get an update on the US & International both with and without the amp?  Really interested as I'm in the market for a new handset.
 
Cheers

Not for me on either my international or AT&T S3s (it didn't fix the Pico not working with my international one either, mores the pity).
