    I stream pandora and other things all the time and the quality is just terrible on froyo. I even tried a regular headphone jack and it is not much better. Anyone have any fixes for this?

    I don't have a fix for it. I jsut wanted to chime in and say that I'm having the same issue.
    everything seems muffled and the bass just doesn't hit anymore.

    Same problem here as well. Tried a few different Rom but still crappy sound. I ended up going back to a 2.1 because I use Pandora so much I couldn't handle the crappy sound.

    Same here. Latest froyo from JRummy. It seems like it could even be a Pandora bug, where it uses an API that puts out a much lower bandwidth voice quality. The sound quality of other things, like the rings, are fine. It seems to be only with Pandora...

    When I read that in the options on Pandora it had me a little scared cause I don't want my phone to mess up or overheat. But I will have to try that.

    I have mine on high quality and it makes no difference. Its a night and day difference. Ill go back to froyo when something is built from source.

    Problem is not just with Pandora, I use Rhapsody and the sound quality was much better until I updated to Froyo. I'm gonna have to go back to 2.1 as well.

    i have the same issues, but sometimes it comes in and out with better sound quality. it's almost like it's adjusting for network strength. maybe a feature they're trying to tweak for the final release?

    I went back to 2.1 Couldn't do it anymore. Regular MP3s seemed fine but anything streaming was terrible regardless of what I tried.

    Gonna concur with everyone else's observations here. What's your setup, Smokie?

    I'm using BB Froyo v0.1, and streaming audio currently is definitely limited to low quality. Let's hope an enterprising dev fixes this or Google releases final source code soon. Pandora 1.3 release notes imply everything was updated to be compatible with 2.2, so maybe we're just looking at a missing API module from the Moto Droid beta?...

    BB 0.2.1 here. I had a very strange night where Pandora degrades the quality of every other song for me. It's quite strange. It's very easy to tell when I plug it into the stereo, not as easy over the speaker phone.

    That's the exact same issues I have had with pandora. From what others have suggested to me, I would have to agree that pandora hasn't made their app play nice with froyo yet. I am using slacker in the meantime since after experiencing froyo, i never want to go back to eclair!

    Update: We tested Pandora on my buddy's phone running UD Froyo release, and there were no audio compression issues. This at least implies that it's not an issue with Pandora 1.3's compatibility with Froyo.

    I haven't tried it on the newest UD Froyo but I tried it in his previous Froyo release and it had the same quality issues for me. Maybe another case of some phones just not playing nice with some ROMs.
