It's amazing what you can do with an iPhone, an iPad and the right app but I fear it's only a matter of time before I want a 'proper' camera.

Bug well and truly caught.

Bit of a strange one this, so bear with me and try not to call me stupid when it turns out the answer is blindingly obvious.

I bought some SoundMagic M310s a few months ago and thought they were OK. Wasn't sure why everyone recommended them, but OK.

I was using them with my iPhone 5 or iPad and now I'm using them with my iPhone 6. Still OK.

Tonight I found myself - rarely, these days - using my MacBook Air in a situation that warrants some music. Plug the SoundMagics in and bang, they sound glorious. Well, they do to me but I don't have any £400 headphones to compare with.

The source is Spotify on both mobile and desktop, with the 'super duper special high bitrate and to hell with data caps' option turned on across both.

So what gives? Yes, the Mac will have different innards obviously, but still, it's night and day.

This is where you tell me I need to buy one of those amps that look like a small fag packet isn't it?

Maybe there is more power to driver the phones from the MacBook than the phones. I would say that is a given, again this is where amps make a difference in their ability to drive the phones

I tell you what - even without an iPhone 6/+ update, the Google+ app benefits from the larger screen. All that media just makes more sense.

Maybe this is why Android users have historically taken to it more than those with iPhones.

Audio snobs. 
I've read this thrice now. I can't decide whether it's tongue-in-cheek or not. TL;DR version: Someone decided they could tell the difference between music tracks played back on one NAS and the same tracks played back on another. I shit you not. Penguin Café Orchestra's Union Café has an ...

It's definitely worse than the first iOS 7 beta as far as breaking apps goes.
