This is for those who are not satisfied with the sound quality/loudness of the earphones that came with the unit. Follow these steps for huge improvement on sound of quality on the bundled earphones:
-buy cheap earphone cushions (sony isn't kind enough to include it)...you will surely experience better bass on the sound
-update your xperia c to latest firmware
-long tap the homescreen to show a tab, tap apps then shortcuts, then look for settings shortcut. Under setting shortcut, choose audio profiles. An audio profiles icon will appear on the homescreen, tap it then check BesAudEnh. Once checked, you will hear better song vocals and added bass when you use the walkman app. Take note that this setting can't be find on the walkman app itself.
-for louder sound make sure you followed earlier steps, go to walkman app, uncheck ClearAudio+ and Dynamic normaliser, do not use any presets in the equaliser. Go to custom and follow these equaliser settings : 400(+7), 1K(+6), 2.5K(+5), 6K(+7), 16khz(+10), Clear Bass(+7)
You may want to uncheck the BesAudEnh option under audio profiles when watching movies as this option adds too much bass on videos too. When maxed out volume, you can hear distortion during explosion scenes. So better uncheck it when watching movies and recheck it again if you're going to listen to music.
At first I was among Xperia C users that's not too happy with its bundled earphones. I thought of buying better pair but after doing these procedures, I changed my mind and stick to using it. Hope these helps.

hey frnds i am going to buy mobile which is best sony xperia c or samsung galaxy grand 2
4GB for the phone is too small and only 2GB available for the user. Sony have to compensate that with upgrade to kitkat. Apart from that it is ok.
emi013, 19 Feb 2014Which is the best this or samsung galaxy grand 2?This has 4gb internal while Grand has 8.Grand 1 is also good.
I'm using NQ android booster and set limit background proccess to 2 .and my free RAM was 600mb :D
If Sony announce 4.4 kitkat for Sony xperia c and give update with in 2 months believe Sony you can sell 3 times more handset then usual
As much as you delay and other companies are launching new handset with 4.4 kitkat then you will be out of race
Sony xperia c is a perfect mobile. But as time demand if Sony what to stay in the world wide market Sony should give kitkat for this set as soon as possible.
