Either defect, of its really because of the earbuds. Its NOT possible, that the m8 is a bad source. I can promise you that (and i use 350 in-ears + 400 Headphones on them.)

EarBUDS are really not known for sounding any good, or even just having bass.
Thats also why even the cheapest in-ears sound way better than 98% of all earbuds on the market. The Soundquality is just very limited due to the construction.

I recently purchase Dunu DN 2000 for my iBasso DX50, but it works well with M8. Overall really happy with the performance.

M8 high resolution playback
I know that it may be a stupid question but here it goes:
I have the Xperia Z3 Compact and I want to upgrade to the M8 for audio quality. Is it worth the trouble? Can the M8 play hi-res audio files?

thank you

Part number is ZBW4122IN
I think the last two alphabets of the part number are different for each region, IN for India.

Been an extremely busy week, haven't been able to sit down and make a review.. Hopefully I'll do it this weekend.. in short, it sounds very good. Better than HTC ones in every way. The mids are recessed, but the v4a DDC profile takes care of that. Stereo separation is good, you can somewhat make out instruments' position from the sound.. Small details are audible, but the treble sounds a little harsh sometimes..
Two things I don't like:
Sound isolation isn't much good.. I guess it's because the backs are open..
The housing finish, although looks good, hurts if it touches your ears.. It's like minute grooves, and they are pretty sharp.
Another small complaint is that it's really impossible to use the in line buttons without accidentally pressing another in line button.
