    I've noticed that the headphone output has been more than halved in the Xs compared to the 8, Xs= 0.42v vs 8= 0.995, is this not a problem for people that might have good enough headphones that require so much power, I have audio technica ath-m50x headphones, which are great, source

    Could someone comfirm if these or similar headphones have been affected by the output of the Xs?

    Question, why do you use such a high end headphone with an input device like an iPhone? The DAC is not good enough to really give you the best out of those pair of headphones.

    Honestly man you can't use full volume on the 8 plus with these headphones, maybe second red bar is the sweetspot, the power output is just about right with the 8

    In that case you should be happy with the Xs.
