    This belongs in the Rom area for Nexus. since it requires you to have a custom Rom.

    The difference I heard was just improvements to the equalizer. I used the galaxy s 2 one.

    I think your point is valid, but with caveats. If you have the high-end obnoxious noise-cancelling pilot-style headphones, then sure. But for people like myself who prefer earbud headsets, it actually brings the bass to a more normal level to enhance the music experience. I have Beats on my HP laptop and also the Rezound, and it sounds pretty good with my BT earbuds, which are a pretty decent pair. For obvious reasons, most earbuds just can't deliver the right balance of bass at a normal eq setting, so you have to jack-up the low-end to get it to sound right.

    Agree with others that you can accomplish the same thing with an app giving you eq settings. I think the annoying thing would be savings and remembering the settings, at least after flashing a rom.

    I haven't tried it myself (I don't really want the Beats sound, I can set up an EQ myself thank you hehe), nor do I have proper equipment to test if this is indeed working or not. But plenty of more knowledgeable folks than me seem to believe that this file does nothing, and any change is placebo. Well disregarding the bootloops and various issues with video players and other apps at least.

    Why wait, just download an eq app or music app with eq and have it now.

    Also on a side note, the phone section of your profile is for your phone model, not your phone number. You should fix that so everyone doesn't see your number.

    Thank god for this mod. My gnex sounded like crap compared to my old Droid razr when hooked to my trucks stereo but now it sounds a lot better. I used the sgs2 download fyi. Also on aokp rom.

    I have volume + but it does not work right now for jb (it was stated on the update via google play) but he is working on it ....for jb
    so right now if some want that "added sound" go with beats....and then if you have both beats and V+ choose which you would rather have via settings/sound
    you know what i'm saying......

    Beats is more than an EQ. Some Beats mods dont even allow you to change the settings because its a "behind the scenes" type software mod. It will change how the music is sent to an app such as poweramp or google play. An EQ like DSP or Volume+ simple changes the db of a freq. after it has hit a program.

    I couldnt find much info on a DSP Manager regarding how it works. Just a bunch of thread with kids asking "do i need to be rooted with this?" and "will it work for my phone?" So maybe it also has lib files that are used to process the music prior to the app but I cant say for sure.
