this thing actually sounds pretty good, just playing straight through a headphone plug to 2xRCA cord in the kitchen system. I'd posted recently about how I thought my EPI 100s might need to be recapped but I think in retrospect what I was hearing was the crappiness of the audio out of my old phone, a HTC One M9. Will the novelty wear off or has anyone else used a HTC 10 to listen to music and been relatively impressed? to my ear it sounds good "for a smart phone" and is even listenable by any standard for background non-critical listening. Or will I change my opinion after I listen more?
