An output impedance equal to the S3 and worse than the Note 2 is the last nail in iPhone coffin.
 
I see myself in a few months with a good sounding smartphone with 144 gigs of space and a few more bucks in my pocket that i went for an iPhone 5.

If you root the phone you can get the S3 to drive crazy good...it powers my 80 Ohm DT770´s with ease which is pretty amazing for a phone!

I used to be HUGE into EQing. But I found that introducing variations in the digital domain...caused me a bit of distress. I found that I liked the flavor of the music, but it increasingly felt like the ingredients were tainted, if you get the metaphor. The Pico DAC/Amp is quite neutral, so I find that the character of the music and the cans shines through much better when I maintain the neutrality all the way through the audio chain.

Having both the S3 and the Note 2, I think - given time, there is only going to be one winner (across the whole spectrum of facilities)...
 
...I think before too long I will be selling my S3, the Note 2 just does everything so well (not to mention that the screen is MUCH more watchable for those tedious train journeys...)

I can barely use the S3 with one hand...no way I could use the Note 2 at all haha 
 
For those with big hands I can see why you would prefer it!

My hands aren't big, but honestly I hardly used my S3 one-handed, so a non-issue for me.

Is the audio settings in the siyah kernel, the same as it will be when Voodoo get upgraded to support the s3. I have only used it with my old LG optimus 2x, and it didn't have all the sound settings.

Anyone know if CM10 has properly implemented USB audio? I find it almost intolerable waiting for stock jelly bean like this...

Sadly, no CM based ROM supports USB audio at this time. You can install two ROMs with the latest build of the Siyah kernel though. Use a Touch wiz ROM for media and CM for everything else.
