I'm not impressed with Beats Audio

    So I just got my new Rezound and love it! I was however dissapointed with the Beats Audio. First of all it only works with the stock music player which is lame since it only plays songs loaded on the device, thats so 5 years ago..... I copied over a few songs onto the SD card and fired up the stock music and used the beats headphones. it sounded good, nothing to write home about. I was also surpridsed at how not-loud it was at full volume. On my wifes ipod shuffle full volume is ear splittingly loud and crystal clear, the Rezound not so much. In fact using the Google Play Music app (the one that supports google cloud music which is the one everyone uses, duh, hello HTC) I was able to get better sound quality than Beats by using an app in the market I found called Volume+. it also gives me volume boost to make it louder and works in every music app. Anyone else have thoughts? Discuss.....

    I know for the galaxy nexus there are beats audio mods that work for any music player and kernels that have increased volume mods built in...maybe there are similar mods for the rezound as well? Then you could have increased volume plus beats audio on any music player...or you can always check out poweramp (no cloud storage but still a great music app with a built in eq)

    Hopefully you didn't commit to the Rezound thinking Beats was any good. Download Audio FX Settings instead.

    No LOL. I commited because of dual core, 4G, and the $50 price.

    I was able to get fantastic frequency response using the Equalizer app. It also allows you to have multiple presets for different sound sources.

    I tried that one too. I certainly works and I love the gui but Volume+ gives you the volume boost feature.

    I personally use DSP manager. I never liked the beats profile for anything other than my earbuds. DSP manager I can setup for listening in my car or other external speakers where beats basically mutes the voice.

    Dsp manager is part of cyanogenmod roms, you need more than just the apk for it to work

    I've run DSP manager on my DX and Rezound, both without Cyanogenmod. DSP Manager 2.35 - xda-developers

    PowerAmp has a Beats on/off. I think it sounds pretty good but nothing spectacular. PowerAmp has a ton of settings though and a full equalizer so you can definitely get the sound you want.

    Just fyi but Poweramp has the option to use Beats. Though I think there IS a slight change for the better, it's so very slight, and really it's just a tiny bump to the bass. It's not BAD, it's just not some revolutionary thing like they tried to claim it as.
