So I have the new Charge, and the car dock that is designed specificly for it. I was super excited that I could plug the power and audio jacks directly into the dock instead of having to manually plug them like I used to have to do with the D1.
Now that the weekend is over, I get to play with the thing in the car without the kids and wife, (read: I get to crank my tunes..)
The audio from the line out on the dock sounds HORRIBLE. I even downloaded winamp, which I used to use on the D1 (which sounded fine) and it still sounds bad. Almost like you took all the bass bars on an EQ and pushed them right to the bottom, and then cranked all the treble ones right to the top.
I should say that I'm no audiophile. I know there are people that complain about the slightest amount of background noise and can detect the smallest problems and blow it way out of proportion - not me, I don't care that much, I just want it to sound normal.
When I got to work I pulled the phone out of the dock and plugged the audio cable up to the headphone jack - sounded fine. So the problem is certainly the dock.. but is it a hardware problem or software?
