Depends on which cans, impedance must match, using Sony MDR-ZX700 it rather sounds better than GS3 Wolfson. Its cleaner and better soundstage with reasonable amount of slam

Has anyone test the S5 against the N3 through the earphone jack?
I had the N3 & got the M8 and the M8 buried the N3 sound wise.

M8 have louder volume than most, it doesn't necessarily mean "better" even if Samsung may need rooting, custom kernel w. sound engine and sound app to match the sheer volume. What it do mean is that you may need to choose which can to use more carefully with Sammy than with M8, unless you root etc of course.

Also confirmed S5 sounds beautiful with Sony MH-1C earbuds, thats great because they are very cheap

I think the S5 (SD 801) sounds better than any other phone i've heard (iphone 5s, s4, s3, note 3)

I haven't heard the M8 yet though.

The M8 should have higher ouput though. But i honestly dont like M8's sound. Its too bassy for me in most of genres.
