Go to Settings->Apps->All->Sound Enhancements->Disable.
Now you can tinker with the Noozxoide app.

after disable the standard EQ, I can adjust nozi and listen at the same time on a standard player? or do I need to download a different music player? I see in the "nooze" three point adjustment, Line out audio monitor, built-in audio monitor, wireless audio monitor, :beyersmile:Which of these three should I set up for my headphones?

Okay... instead of being indignant... why not tell us what headphones you are using? If you want help, don't make us search the thread for the post you wrote what headphones you are using?

The default player will work as good as any other. You need to configure the line-out.

thank you my good man, understood + disabled junk pile of applications that ate my battery! I will test the new equalizer unsubscribe later about the results.

The sound of the two is both great, as to which is better it depends on your tastes. The F is smaller, lighter and a bit faster, if you just want it for music and like its sound then that is probably the better choice. The Z is about the size of a smartphone and if you want to do all round android games etc. you may prefer that. Z also has HDMI output through a micro USB port and the F does not. I have both, Japanese versions, and enjoy them both. I find they have plenty of power for all the headphones I've used with them both full size and IEMs. They have their quirks but either way you will have great sounding device.

I think you meant 'brand' and 'reboot'.
I have also used a chinese charger in the past, works like a charm for me.
Try changing the charger.

On color... The black and red colors refer to just the screen surround and sides. Interestingly, the whole back of the "black" is purple but the back of the "red" is a textured charcoal finish which to me was much nicer. I think the black description is quite misleading.

But the both sound the same and great! Unlike the claims over on the AK100 thread with some people claiming the Gold one sounds different. At least with Japanese and European Z there are technically explained reasons they sound different from each other and the Rest of World models.

I've read some saying the SQ also suffers. Why not get a US version from Amazon? Pretty cheap.

All of the arguments on the past few pages have been erm... interesting...

 

For me, for headphone out, I still prefer the JPN X that I have, but for line out, I prefer the Z feeding the Fiio E12...

 

What a lot of people seem to be missing here is that it is all about system matching - but that system has to match your ears too...

 

Take for example my CDP that I bought last weekend (Cyrus CD6SE2) - an analytical player, so would turn a lot of people off, however - with the LCD2s the cleanness of the CDP balances out the warmth of the cans, and leaves me with a magnificent sound :)

 

Undoubtedly would sound not so good to me these days, but back in the day, my personal favourite combination was the Sony X and JVC FX500 - for the polar opposite reason to that above (warm source, analytical IEMs) - whereby the Z almost needs the opposite - if going through the headphone out - would sound best with a warm, slightly slow sounding IEM - which again would balance it all out a little.

 

That is an incredibly broad generalisation though, and is not meant to say that anyone who has a different logic to mine is wrong - however, ironically - it would prove in itself the point I'm trying to make ;o)

I can't buy from amazon USA because I will pay alot of money in customs tax.

It's also hard, really hard to believe that Sony is giving to us Europeans, a worse sounding player (just because of volume cap). I don't think this is possible, sorry, but I can still change my mind.
I wouldn't risk it though.

I have an EU Z, and whilst the actual volume isn't limited compared to JPN / US versions, as others have said, there does seem to be an impedance problem which makes it sound really thin...

 

Thankfully that doesn't appear to be an issue from the line out (WM Port) which I use with the Fiio, so - all is good :)

P.S. Not that I'm not happy with my actual setup, the X1050 sounds way better than my Audigy X-Fi Xtreme GAMER FPS sound card (more details, treble is more realistic, better mids, better soundstage, etc), but the more extended treble in the F appeals to me as I'm a treble-head. And more soundstage depth and width is always welcome. Oh, and looking forward to try BBE PRO in it (yes, the same technology used in Cowons).
BBE on the F? :-$
