Just got one, very well preserved. Plugged Sony MDR-XB70AP headphones in, chose Martin Garrix's "Turn Up The Speakers", volume set to 50%, default equalizer, press Play...and after 2 mins I started to laugh hysterically. The sound output just blows away HTC M8 that I also own as well as my head and even dedicated music player from Sony (NWZ-E463) it's no match for it at many songs. Now I rarely use my MP3 player anymore!
until now, no one can match the sound quality of the Nokia N91, the best mobile phone music
Another phone close to N91 sound? I still use my N91 8Gb. Really like the faces of my friends when they compare the n91 sound vs iPhone, etc ,after they try to convince me that their devices are better in term of sound quality and loudness. I also use it as source for my amp.
superb audio quality.a legendary music phone of it's kind,cant compare even this time by any phone with music clarity.hope so nokia will revive once more when they're back on mobile phone industry
Unique music experience indeed n91, uncomparable with any recent device when comes to music capabilties, i wish i could get another n91 because mine has died
From what I know, when I used it, Whatsapp never worked on it in front of my eyes....
We'll have to check with Whatsapp .sisx to know about it.
perfect for back up phone may i know where i buy this phone can you give me the details
Actually the sound mod sounds great even with AC3 tracks and dolby with EQ set to all bars max with earphones connected directly to the headphone jack rather than the AD54 adapter(which sounded distorted in this scenario). My AD54 is probably not genuine. A hacked 808 isn't just a great cameraphone, it's also a great audio device(both playback and recording).
bharathnel, 21 May 2014hi samarth...
I hav listened to samsung S4 & S3 and i can clearly say that the stock mp3 ... moreThe 808 is definitely better than the s4 at stock settings. However, one can improve the s4 sound by setting up Adapt sound properly(use a headphone that has a relatively flat profile, one that doesn't colour the sound too much). OR use jetaudio or poweramp players.
For the 808, you'd need to hack it to get even better sound. Install the Delight custom firmware. This firmware increases the overall volume of the device for headphones without sacrificing quality. It gives you the ability to edit the equalizer in default player(which affects most other players too) and create your own eq profiles. It also has a sound mod that improves the output when an eq profile is selected(better seperation of instruments, clearer voice and clearer bass) that you can turn on/off. With the increased volume levels + custom eq set to all bars max + the sound mod on, the 808 sounds fantastic. Pair this with third party player QuasarMx for FLAC support and great playlist management as well as its own audio bass and treble enhancers, preamp and 10 band eq for a great experience. Unfortunately it does suffer from stability issues but such a hacked 808 blows away the s4(non rooted).
When it comes to audio in video files, there is no competition. The sound mod+custom eq(default music player) + dolby is awesome for regular tracks. For AC3 tracks, Dolby + custom eq(all bars max) is sufficient, the sound mod off as it distorts in this scenario. The loudness filter(default music player) plus the activate bass mod can also be turned on to add some niceness to some videos although some purity will be lost.
I own both the 808 and S4(exynos version) and there is no contest. I'm not sure how much V4A would improve the S4 but I'd need to hack the device as viper4android doesn't work with stock settings.
sandy56, 10 Jun 2015I want to know about Nokia n91 sound quality. As I am a music lover ,shall I go with Nokia n91... moreyes absolutely it is one of the first phone to offer high impedence driver unit to drive large headphones still use it besides my regular vivo x5 max.
its has almost no distortion even at loudest point in headphones almost 50% is rich enough to supply sufficient power to casual earcanals...not too much of audio settings are there but it has 8band equlizer and loudness and pan audio and stereo audio controls and decent playlist organisation features as recent year artists genere albums etc ...and most of all durability.
davisrases, 22 Jan 2015I don't know why guys but I hear a hissing sound over the headphones when I play songs or duri... moreIts not a common problem, try different earphones and adaptors.. and see if it exists...
could be a hardware problem maybe....
I want to know about Nokia n91 sound quality. As I am a music lover ,shall I go with Nokia n91, htc M8, Sony 550i or iPhone 4s. Which is the best music phone?
can anybody tell me Nokia n91 market availibility.
I don't know why guys but I hear a hissing sound over the headphones when I play songs or during notifications and calls. I use creative ep-630. what could be the reason or is it common.
the only reason i am still using this, jst coz of its music player..otherwise everything is outdated.. even better than reputed standalone music players, dn knw why nokia stopped putting in audio chips, n91 is very loud while maintaining audio quality, bass is superb audio hiss is 0%. such quality is rare now a days, todays phones hardly lasts for a year or two but my n91 is working perfectly fine since its very 1st day almost 9 years now, in 2005 i used to protect it as a mother cares her baby lol may b that is y its still with me n working.
