K1000716:joker97: I just read that the s2 is inferior to many inc s1 in terms of headphone audio quality and that a certain voodoo kernel with some tweaking will make it superior ... Anyone explain?
In a nutshell the Wolfson chip used in the S1 and S3 gives excellent quality sound, particularly with the tweaks made by Supercurio's Voodoo Sound. The S2 uses a cheaper (supposedly) and lower quality Yamaha chip which leaves little to no room for improvement.
There are voodoo tweaks for colour, but nothing for sound on the S2.
thanks ... hmmm ... i'm a newly convert audiophile - i guess will defect to iphone 5 when it eventually comes out ... but for now -
anyone on omega rom (or any other ICS rom) noticed the volumes are much lower on headphone? on dlev 2.3.5 at volume 5 is pretty loud - since going to omega rom i need to be around 12 for similar volume ...
what about other roms? will siyah kernel be the problem?
ANOTHER problem - on siyah 3.1 - every so often the phone will heat up very very very hot like a short circuit and needs a reboot ... any other kernel options? abyss discussions are in german! i guess can wait till siyah 3.2 full release
