LG G8X MAKES YOU AN AUDIOPHILE
The LG G8X has an amazing 3.5 mm Audio Jack output. Well to be fair most of the LG Devices has an amazing headphone Jack.
In terms of wireless output it supports LDAC which is SONY’s proprietary audio coding technology.
It also has the feature to turn on DTS:X 3D Surround Sound which the name itself suggests what it does. but personally I do not like it that much
Now without getting into detailed about the technical terms let’s dive into how can you as a consumer make the most use of it.
TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF YOUR AUDIO JACK!
I know Bluetooth Headphones are just easy to use and no hassle of wire and stuff, BUT just once try using a good pair of Headphones, I personally rock a One Odio Pro 50
Which is a DJ grade headphone but it’s really cheap when compared to some other headphones out there at the same price range.
Most importantly you need to get a good pair of Headphones, earphones work too but I personally am fan of Headphones. They produce much better sound quality than earphones.
After getting good pair of Headphones you need Some Uncompressed/ lossless Music. Also termed as FLAC music.
There are many ways of getting music in FLAC. We will only discuss the Legal ways for Legal Reasons. The best way to listen to FLAC music is to buy a Family subscription to Tidal with your friends or if you are rich then you can buy a individual subscription
LDAC IS NOT SUPPORTED IN EVERY AUDIO DEVICE
Whenever you buy a Bluetooth Headphone/ Earphone make sure that it supports LDAC or else its equivalent to using some normal earphones with your LG G8X.
As this is SONY’s proprietary technology the Bluetooth devices supporting this might be a little pricey as compared to their non LDAC supported alternatives.
But Trust me that premium is worth paying for.
Again you will need some FLAC music to enjoy the best experience but even a normal song will sound better on LDAC because normal Bluetooth tends to compress the songs which might not be noticeable unless one listens to the real uncompressed music
Don’t Cheap out while buying a pair of Headphones or Earphones because Music has many positive effects on the body.
And your body deserves some positivist and listening to music on quality Headphones reduces the need to turn the volume too high. Hence making it a good deal for your ears too.
