Samarth N8 808 user, 10 May 2014Bharat, I have heard N91, Nokia 808 and Galaxy S4 in headphones.
Nokia 808's audio is clean... morehi samarth...
I hav listened to samsung S4 & S3 and i can clearly say that the stock mp3 player of s4(stock firmware) in the audio department is not as gud as nokia 808..
The instrument separation in s4 might be a bit better, but 808 is very accurate sounding compared to s4(with dolby turned off)..

Nokia 808's audio is clean, clear, good enough if you love music. I have it, and I listen to it.
Galaxy S4's audio is actually better than 808. Its audio is something you would call "spacious, crystal clear" with all elements being perfectly audible... There is a feeling of evolution in it.
N91? Well, its the incomparable legend.
Its sound is clear enough with all elements being precise and audible, but its enhanced bass, music processing and very high volume levels make listening music so damn exciting that nothing in mobile phones quite matches it.
Today, you could attach a N91 to some serious amplifiers and it still has best fidelity among phones. And that audio quality.... it sounds "exciting" like nothing other can.
No matter what you listen to, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Indie, Country..... N91 makes any music "better", such matured and lovely music processing it has. Seriously.
You will have to listen it to know....

Samarth N8 808 user, 26 Sep 2013I'm afraid that the Elop-misguided Nokia staff is not even seeing our comments. All I can h... moreWe can only dream. But the reality is cruel. N91 is one of a kind. A perfect music experience with no successor...
I'm afraid that the Elop-misguided Nokia staff is not even seeing our comments.
All I can hope is that they come to their senses and create a more modern N91 version 2 with:
1. FLAC+ 24 bit playback support,
2. Music modification, Pitch blending, speed, equalizer, etc.
3. Atleast 64 GB memory.
4. Upgraded Nokia Music setup with addition of high quality music option,
5. More music keys,
6. The SAME AUDIO QUALITY... not even 1% change, please.
But its a sad dream. Won't be fulfilled unfortunately.
i'm currently using xperia l but i jumped to my old nokia n91 only due to it's audio chip inside WOW! i just felt the bass with my sennheiser cx 270 headphone which i couldn't on xperia l.xperia l has very low volume levels.
Awesome Phone for music & perfect for my hands.I still use it as a backup phone.When I plug my senheisser on it the bass & quality , cannot be compared with the latest samsung/I-Phone.
I still have mine. best looking phone with great stereo sound. I loved when people keep asking me what phone is that. I wish someone can come up with something like the design of N91
I wish nokia (and all other brands) stop monopolize us with touchscreen phones and start making this kind of masterpiece again. just like the old days... holding brand new n91 or e90 was an uncomparable feeling.. now they are all the same, flat-plastic-square. boring!
