Keeping it simple.
We added an amazing headphone amplifier and DAC combo to the V.
The headphone amp has a lot of power, that’s one of its best features. We have access to none of that power. Reviews on audio through the headphone jack are average at best, partly because the V amplifier is crippled and doesn’t access to the power to actually drive high-quality headphones!
A prototype tester said once that at Windows volume 5 their earbuds were louder than most devices at ~70%! That’s what I want the option for. I want to drive large over-ear headphones at high volumes and good quality. THAT is the differentiator, that’s what we need. Yes, if you don’t pay attention you can overdrive small headphones. Small price to pay for proper power.
So, whether in a software update that directly boosts amp power or offering a tool to adjust it, it’s necessary in my opinion! Give us the choice.
