> Testing high end headphones on phone...
You literally have to train yourself to hear the difference between FLAC and MP3 or $150 headphones and $500 headphones. And even then the difference is miniscule. Using headphones, especially Bluetooth ones, with your phone is perfectly acceptable and probably the most common use-case. So, yeah, no problem with that.
And to get audiophiles REALLY angry: your 'high-end' headphones and lossless codecs do the EXACT same thing for you that a high-end Mac does for Apple customers. I'm not saying you're stupid to buy that shit, I'm just saying don't expect people to understand or demand to be taken seriously.
OP here: Those aren't M50s, same company though. Multiply the price by 2.5x.
Specifically the AMD shilling part. He has a video where he compares bulldozers to goddamn ivy bridge i5s on fucking Arma II of all title, which is extremely cpu dependant and only ever uses the first thread, and he had the nerve to show a fake video where the bulldozer was leaving ivy in the dust.
I've never seen so much fucking bullshit in my entire life.
OP again: Seriously, I have no idea who this is. Can I get his youtube name to witness the absurdity?
Youtube is probably the only community I've ever avoided(honestly, other than 4chan until recently.)
OP once again: Found his YT thanks to this video, fucking thank you. Looking up "schill AMD youtube" it took until the 3rd result page(unheard of) to find out who the fuck this guy was.
Maybe the google botnet doesn't know enough about me. :( Lol...
Seriously, 6/10ths a bottle of 40% rum, help.
I can't stand uninformed posts like this.
There is zero, absolutely zero audible difference between FLAC and mp3 320kbps, v0, and most opus.
You can't train you ears, more expensive equipment doesnt suddenly make a difference between them, a 500 dollar DAC will sound no different than a 20 dollar DAC, and a cheap amp should sound the same as an expensive one.
There however would be a big difference between Bluetooth and a pair you plug in because of bluetooths shitty limitations.
I wouldn't say a cellphone is the best test bed for a pair of headphones but I can tell you right now that modern smartphones have better audio that your typical integrated soundcard on your motherboard.
OP again: Wtf is this non-sense? This is completely untrue. If you're into audio and building a custom PC, this is a total falsehood.On board audio has surpassed even most pci-e solutions.
Again; I'm an audio engineer(hence the need for studio headphones), and while you're accurate about the FLAC/320kps audible difference to MOST, you're absolutely wrong when it concerns the use of DACs/soundcards in blind audio tests.
And I'm an electrical engineer with ears that work and a brain capable of logical reasoning.
Your degree was completely wasted on you if you think there's a difference in sounds between amps and dacs.
