First post, here it goes. I own a SGS2 at the moment. I like it. But I don't rate it for listening to music through earphones. I am using some Sennheiser CX300s which are not the best but much better than any bundled earphones. I've been reading about Wolfson DAC/headphone amp parts like the wm8994 and so forth. I believe the iPhone has used Cirrus parts for a few years. So which phones deliver a good loud sound through the earphones? It annoys me that reviewers rarely cover these areas. And even the manufacturers don't really bother publishing audio specs. Music is a killer app for me. I might have to move on to the iPhone 5 or a Nokia Windows Phone in a few months. The SGS2 is not a great mp3 player imho.
