I watched Shin Godzilla (シン・ゴジラ Shin Gojira, AKA Godzilla Resurgence) last night, and I enjoyed it so much that I just had to say something about it. Mild spoilers follow. I haven’t been a huge follower of the Godzilla franchise. I’ve seen bits of the Japan...

Favourite Video Game Loops
Here's the thing. I love videogame soundtrack loops. I respect composers who can put together something that will set the tone, fade into the background for long periods, but still have a hook that makes it interesting when you just sit down and listen to i...

Why I Returned My iPhone 6S
So after two weeks, I returned my iPhone 6S to the Apple Store. Actually, it was a few hours beyond Apple's two week return window as I bought the 6S during the morning launch. They weren’t going to hold that against me.  For now, I’ve gone back to my iPhon...

This is the clearest way I could demonstrate the noise on my iPhone 6S. Hope to get some response from @Apple

Since uploading this video, I've done some more testing. Here are the earphones I own which pick up the buzzing on the iPhone 6S distinctly. They're listed with impedance and sensitivity figures as a guide.)

- Audio Technica ATH-IM02 (36 ohms, 113dB)
- Nuforce Primo 8 (38 ohms, 118dB)
- Sony MDR-7550 (16 ohms, 108dB)
- Sony XBA-C10 (24 ohms, 100dB)
- VSonic VSD3S (40 ohms, 108dB)

Note that not all of these earphones are balanced armatures. It seems like if an earphone is low impedance and quite sensitive, it might pick up the buzzing noise. But there's no consistency. For instance, I can't pick up the buzzing on the Sennheiser Amperior (18ohms, 120dB).

If you have one of the new iPhones, please let us know if you can hear anything on your earphones.

After three seperate demos, I bought the HIFIMAN HE400S yesterday. I spend the evening listening and doing some listening comparisons with the AKG K712 and the Audio Technica ATH-R70x. I’m not a huge believer in burn in as a significant factor in changing t...
