Samsung, since the S3 and S1, has already given equal sound quality. Frankly, when FLAC is not supported on the iPhone, there is no point in making an argument in stating 'superior' sound quality when it doesn't have the capabilities of even performing so. Apple doesn't cater to professionals, they cater to the disorientated mass. Enjoy ALC through a USB out to an AMP while my HTC One can surpass it on the stop.
My iPhone can properly drive my Shure E500s, I'm sure any phone will have no problem pushing your little ER-4S. You have no idea what you're talking about, just mindlessly bashing as usual.
Flac is just a format pseudo audiophiles like you like to throw out there. But let me guess, iPhone users don't care about sound either? Somehow the failing HTC and Samsung suddenly cater to professionals? How delusional are you?
Enjoy that's Beats audio, lol. Sounds like you we're suckered into marketing. Love that bass
Your iPhone can drive some 36 ohm @ 1KHz IEMs; that's cute. They won't output enough power to properly drive the ER-4S. So, unless you can prove that they could properly drive 100 ohm IEMs, over the entire frequency curve (understand that rated impedance is typically averaged to the 1KHz frequency), you can stop speaking out of your arse.
Have you looked at distortion graphs of ALC, MP3, ACC, FLAC, and WAV before? Doesn't sound like it. There is no 'pseudo' effect as FLAC offers no distortion to audio tracks upwards to ~120 dB. You can't say thet same about ALC, MP3, nor AAC, especially when Apple's codecs compressed the audio file in ways that is not harmonic with the rest of the frequency band. Frequencies they 'choose' that you won't listen to are greatly distorted.
I don't use the Beats equalizer. Funny you don't look into the schematics of the audio design, nor the audio logistics used in a phone before shooting crap out your arse. Seriously, stop posting nonsense and get an education.
