    Hey, all.

    So I got my Galaxy Nexus last week, and I noticed almost from the start that the audio quality is not on par with what I've become accustomed to on my old Droid X. I stream A LOT of music on my way to and from work, so this is a major issue for me. Volume is fine, but quality is lacking. To the point where it's actually painful. It's just not as crisp and clear as my X was. And I've tried multiple music programs so that isn't it. Any chance this is a software issue that could be patched or resolved with a ROM? I really don't know much about this kind of thing and I really want to keep my Nexus. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, meant to say I use an aux out cable into a pioneer head unit in my car. So I don't care so much about the speaker quality as I do the audio output quality. And yes, the og Droid rocked.

    Most likely a faulty port, haven't seen many have problems with audio output through auxiliary cables. Have you tested just some headphones to see if the port works with them?

    the port works. There isn't any distortion, it just isn't as clear as I am used to. I guess my ears are just too sensitive. Haha. Maybe I'll take my headphones to Verizon and compare my sound to the demo
