tech.pro, 05 May 20163.5 mm jack has not been bottle neck but the quality of sound you hear in your headphone diffe... moreYour point is valid in that while using the 3.5mm audio jack the final sound quality will drastically vary from phone to phone with the SAME HEADPHONE. This is because different phones have different audio hardware architectures built in it which results in different sound qualities. An audiophile centric phone will have discrete DACs and headphone amplifiers resulting to superlative sound quality through 3.5mm audio jack while another phone may end up using the internal crappy audio codec that comes with every Snapdragon or MideaTek chipsets.
But with recent trio of LeEco phones, we are in trouble the other way. As these phones comes with no in-built audio hardware which gives the desired sound quality, the final sound quality will now drastically vary from headphone to headphone with the SAME PHONE. If only an audiophile headphone manufacturer ever in their craziest dreams think of making a headphone for LeEco, we can end up with amazing sound quality. But that is not the case as we are all stuck with a very limited number of headphone options that LeEco will provide to us on their mercy. So we are stuck in their eco-system and do not have our freedom of choice. Whenever we buy their phone, we have to now buy their headphone.
And as you say LeEco perform all digital-to-analog conversions themselves with inbuilt high quality DAC inside their headphones, may we know the make or the model no. of this DAC? After all how do you know it is of high quality? Just by reading their marketing jargon's? And now as the DACs come inside the LeEco headphones they become even more expensive than similar quality 3.5mm headphones.
I am still not able to understand from your explanations how LeEco was able to improve the sound quality with their CDLA tech over conventional 3.5mm audio jack? The only change that I can see is they have moved the DAC from inside the phone to their headphones so that they can sell both their products and garner more profit.
RishiGuru, 04 May 2016How come a USB Type-C port with CDLA transmission tech have better sound quality than a 3.5mm ... more3.5 mm jack has not been bottle neck but the quality of sound you hear in your headphone differs from phone to phone even with same headphone. With USB Type-C headphones, they directly take digital input and perform all conversions themselves with inbuilt high quality DAC. This will help them to output more quality sound. LeEco has developed CDLA for better sound processing.
I want to buy this phone where can I avail this? Im from Philippines :)
tech.pro, 03 May 2016Yes, it has audio port. It gives high quality music output from USB Type-C port using LeEco's... moreHow come a USB Type-C port with CDLA transmission tech have better sound quality than a 3.5mm audio jack? After all the 3.5mm audio jack have never been the bottleneck in regards to sound quality on mobile phones. So what advantages does LeEco brings with this tech?
Mrbappy, 28 Apr 2016Very disappointing thing is that their is no audio jack.It's very difficult for day to day life...Yes, it has audio port.
It gives high quality music output from USB Type-C port using LeEco's Continuous Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) which is better than current audio port.

can sum1 tell, if they have sold dis phn in China on Tuesday..
why there arent any review out yet..???

Yes, this phone also lacks 3.5mm audio jack and outputs audio through usb.
is it very hard (read: costly) to make a max 5.2" display? after then the body will not exceeds 14.7 cm length?...hmmm curious.
Can any once confim is this once of those phone which has audio out put via usb port
mr. nobody, 25 Apr 2016WTF!!!!!!!....no audio jack......
To me the LeEco's are audioless phones as they comes devoid of any analog audio hardware. They are in reality saving money on these phones by omitting the implementation of expensive DACs and headphone amplifier chips in the phone. They are basically routing the digital audio straight from the cpu to the usb out. To market they need a colorful name, so we get CDLA bullshit tech.
And to prove this point even further they are not revealing any details of the audio chips used inside their headphones.
If battery is of 4000 mh and it support memory card than it will prove better than redmi note 3
