Well.... I need more cowbell! jk, but unless there is an app in the marketplace that I am unaware of, I don't know of a way to up the bass. There have been some reports saying that some people have experienced crackling/popping sounds coming from their droid when playing high bass music through the headphone jack. Could be just some sets though, hopefully.

OP... Buy new (bass heavy) headphones in you require 'more bass'.

At this point there are no Android app media players with suitable EQ adjustment, so the DROID simply sounds the way it sounds... Nice & Neutral

I've asked to see if there are any EQ apps out there too, just a couple of days ago, but no positive answers. At least not yet. Here's to hoping something will be out soon... :)

I wish there was a way to amplify the output from the headphone jack. In my car, I have to turn the volume way up on the headunit in order to get it to a good level. My usual max is about 22 on my headunit, but with the droid, i have to go up to about 35-40. I tried cranking up the volume on the droid itself, but if you go up too high it degrades the output and you hear crackling and junk when the bass hits. Kinda wish there was a media dock on the bottom like an ipod/iphone.

If your car's stereo can accept USB devices, try plugging the Droid in as a USB device and allowing the car's stereo to mount the SD card. It should then recognize any MP3 files on the Droid and allow you to play them.

Within my car, I have 2 cables. The cable from mono price makes a cracking noise. But I tried a different aux cable that was a "high quality" cable and it works just fine. hmm go figures. With Bass and all.

Go out on ebay and buy a headphone amp. I'm still trying to get around to building one myself. Most I see though are on Ebay for about 50-60 bucks, and if you want bass, that'll make a world of difference.

I think the one i have is a Scosche, from wallymart. The crackling noise goes away if i turn the volume of the droid down from max, but the overall volume coming out of the speakers is still lower than if i use the normal radio/CD functions. Are you saying that if you turn the droid all the way up on the "high quality" cable, that it sounds fine?

I got the monoprice cable and it's fine. I think the fact is the droid outputs a very neutral sound. I have a nice subwoofer setup in my car and trust me there is more than enough bass to go around! I got my phone hooked up to pandora blasting out the tunes this morning.. great!
Now if only I could figure out how to connect the phone to my other car which has a stupid ipod adaptor and no aux in.. any ideas?
I tried connecting the droid to my stereo using usb but it didnt recognise it, I think because it needs a driver in order to work.. bummer but since I really want to use the phone with pandora not too bad anyway.
Now if only someone could get the BBC iplayer working here in the US it would be perfect!

I third the motion. Its annoying on the eyes to have one poster out of format from everybody else when trying to read threads.
