Galaxy A80 revealed - up, down, round and around

Recommended Posts

That just looks like adding a lot more complexity to the phone, meaning more stuff to collect dust, dirt, all sorts of stuff, then break. I'd rather a notch than a complicated slide out/flip around setup that breaks over time.


 If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

Who actually uses headphones with a phone though lets get real. When you’re out and about you get earphones. 

My 1000XM2 would like to have a word

For those who care:

No headphone jack or SD card slot.

This doesn't really surprise me. A few of the Galaxy Axx phones have no jack.

 

Don't know why as the higher end S10 has it alongside the lower end models. So that's odd.

What are wired IEMs then?

Some knick-knacks that come with phones or for free when you ride on a tour bus. 

Or better quality than any wireless you can buy?

People who say that just haven’t heard any recent wireless headphones.

You don't account for the price difference. You can probably expect at least a 5x premium for the wireless part and you have to charge them as well. So you have to scale the price for every step of quality. That's going to either a) get expensive or b) be non-existent.

 

You're also fighting physics here. In order to fit the radio and battery you'd either have to add some wires attached to a unit to remove the bulk from the main product itself or make them excessively large to fit it.  Not to mention if you want smart features you might need a larger chip and microphones. Why does the size matter? Because you generally need larger drivers and housings to produce better audio.

 

Also, you're at the mercy of the codec used and the compatibility between all links in the chain. So you may end up with heavily compressed audio anyway due to compatibility and the subsequent fallback to the lowest supported standard.

 

Need I go on?

I don't run with them. I use them for my daily commute or in lounges or aircraft. 

 

There are practical uses for earbuds, but they're not for me because I find them uncomfortable. Over-ear cans are much better for what I use them for.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I can fit my V-Moda M100s in a jacket pocket or leave them hanging on my neck, they're pretty portable.

 

And 10,000x more convenient than any wireless sets.

If only there were more compact over ear headphones to take outside. Like the ones that could go on your ear. Oh, I know, let's call them on ear headphones. Best patent them before someone else like every manufacturers ever makes them. Or the idea of good earphones that need proper internals to fully drive them.

Most people don't use them in the gym. And those who do use them use mostly wired ones.

I mean that's a good argument: "Imma buy this phone without a headphone jack because I hate using wired ones in the gym." If only normal phones with a headphone jack could connect to those, one can only wish?

Gee, both my Redmi Note 7 and Galaxy Note8 pair nicely with my 1000XM2 with full functionality and they both have headphone jacks.

 

Shocker

 

I mean it’s not like they have an additional universal port that just works and don’t require faffing around with dongles to know which are analog and digital and which works.

witchcraft!

everybody knows that a round hole on a phone will disrupt the quality of the bluetooth signal. 

There can be only one!

i don't know, because someone assumed if you can afford this phone, you can get wireless earphones?

Or was it because someone said that cans can't be used on the gym therefore you shouldn't use them with a phone?

And even if you are faffing around with dongles.. some people have wired headphones that are amazing quality that they don't want to spend the same amount or more on wireless earbuds to replace.
