Google Play Store - download PowerAmp = Preamp + 10 level Equalizer. Does the job.
Great Amp that boost your head phones really LOUD, and with 10 level equalizer, you can adjust the sound perfectly.

Pure Gimmick - nothing more than a sound equalizer software. Just like Walkman in Sony. It's nothing like walkman that I used to know...

Beats tend to push the wave to add certain degree of impact so we felt that the thumps sound better, but actually the sound pieces are dissolved.

For me, sound quality is based on sound chip being used and component that support that chip.

I've seen that many debate whether Sony is better, HTC is better, or Samsung is better. I know, many have their own taste and it's also very depend on the headphone/earphone being used. But for me, currently no phones sound that impress me:)

> In reply to sssssssss @ 2013-10-02 12:11 from pqyd - click to readYou're correct, I'm only using previous model.
I'm not stupid enough to use cans without proper amplifier. Well, 8volts is huge, it's can drive orthodynamic easily (but I doubt HTC phones can drive such as HE-06 or LCD-2 properly). What cans (headphone) did you use? If the impedance lower than 150ohm (peak), tipically no additional amplification required.

But I believe Beats behavior is retained on current products as many people praise for it. So, still it's just a tweak software.

If you want to enjoy true bass then go for Sony, believe me you wont regret it and if you want more rich experience then Sony XB series earbuds are amazing for this job. The only reason I buy Sony fones are because of the sound quality via earfones. Iphone5 really disappointed me here even S3 with its wolfson chip couldnt compete with Sonys bass. BTW tegras sound amazing too.

> In reply to MasEnha @ 2013-10-02 11:37 from 9xx6 - click to readit is not only software. htc 8x,8s,one,butterfly have a headphones amplifier wich rises output voltage with 8 volts. if you can somehow, compare previous models of htc with beats label like one x and one s from 2012 with 8x or one 2013. those old models had only a software eq., but the new models have dedicated amplifiers for headphones output. the difference is immense. htc 8x,htc one,butterfly can "open" and drive very big professional headphones with high impedance. i had it all, i know better. in 2012 i had htc one x and now i have htc one. the headphones amplifier is outstanding

Both products are solely music players, but at least that what mobile music player should be sound.

I don't really understand why did Beats got pretty much attention. It's just software tweak that reduce music harmony.
