What's New in Version 1.7.3
Fixed bug that would crash app for some iOS 5 users
Saved me a ton of money!
My car is my listening environment, I've installed very decent audio equipment because as a musician I like the details. When I upgraded the head unit to a HD one, I noticed that the music over the air sounded better than the music on my phone (CD quality vs compressed) and as a musician that bothered me. Alot.
I use the BBE Sonic Stomp pedal on my guitar rig and am quite pleased with it, but never really thought about the app until the HD upgrade.
Anyways, my solution was going to be a 2nd music library with everything ripped uncompressed loaded onto a hard disk based player. Then I remembered this app and figured it was cheaper (and easier) than my original idea. SO GLAD I DID! The app added new sense of fullness to the music on my iPhone, I cannot tell the difference between music through this app and uncompressed CD. It's that good.
It's also done wonders for the quality through a cheap pair of headphones I use near the pets, can't wait to find out how it does on my motorcycle's headsets!
Better sound than music app, interface not so much…
Better sound than music app by a mile, but worse interface by a mile. Please add sort by album artist, this is the default on the music app ! I have compilations where there are now hundreds of artists I have to scroll through unnecessarily. The now playing screen is a mess, why not show just the cover art or the option for that. Also the round knobs for the controls on a 4" screen, impossible to work with consistently. This is a digital device no need to mimic a physical round knob, its not like i can actually grab it. Controls in lock screen mode do nothing, so can't pause for instance.
Edit: to clarify bought these to drive my sennheiser HD580 for an iPod touch 5g and they do a fantastic job of that, so bumping to 4 stars minus the interface issues.
It does make a big difference!
I just A/B'ed it with my iPhone 5 and audio-technica ATH-M40fs headphones. The difference with the BBE on was like taking cotton out of my ears. I could hear details and dynamic range so much better with it on that turning it off made the music sound completely dull and lifeless.
