The distortion range is somewhere upper bass, the deepest low no problem at all. before the update distorted sound on both treble and bass, now only bass for certain songs.


Sennehisher launch with new IEM IE 800 claims can go high and low without distorted, will soon go audition to check the distortion songs to see the truth :P

Exactly! The lowest bass is present and not distorted. As an example one can listen to "bass, I love you" with great sub-bass frequences- powerful deep bass is reproduced very impressive. But when it comes to massive bass at about 60Hz - something odd happens. Wrote to sony support-waiting for comments.

so i installed poweramp and jetaudio, es file explorer, and also stopped the w.control app from running. now, i am getting smiles all over again. =)

 

adjustable L/R balance because my hearing imbalance goes on and off, disabled w.control app and the button can now be used as an alternative "power button" to lit the screen back instead of pushing that nasty power button on top of the walkman F because it is too hard to push and reach for a left-hander, an optional 10-band (poweramp)/20-band (jetaudio) EQ if i need to use them. and i can also delete/move songs without connecting it to the computer!

 

with these apps installed, i maybe dont need to have an updated firmware anymore and also waiting for someone from XDA to root the walkman F so that i can remove those bloatwares and unnedded running programs.

 

still a walkman outside, but not inside! xD and the sound is still the same, although the volume gets lower when using third party apps so i need to crank up the volume by 2-4 ticks.

Anyone have a list of the demo music they have on the Japanese units? I deleted my Music folder (prior to setting up sync with a new install of MediaMonkey), only to realise I didn't have copies of all the demo tracks. Some weren't so bad so a list of the authors/tracks would be awesome. :)

Same as my unit. If you read the thread it does seem you're not missing out on much as no real improvements were made and you still have the benefits of the Japanese NW version!

where did you buy it from? someone on here or a proper dealer?
post #1239 of 2007

from a guy in ebay... the walkman is like brandnew...
 

post #1240 of 2007

was it brand new and fully boxed etc or just the walkman you got? unboxed items or grey market items are appearing with problems updating their firmware...

post #1241 of 2007

Hi,

 

can someone tell me if I can use all those Sony EQs like S-Master in third-party apps like Spotify?

thanks! smily_headphones1.gif

post #1242 of 2007

unboxed :-S  but it doesnt look like a fake or anything :-S
 

post #1243 of 2007

All unboxed can't be updated, they are not fake, just not finalised product (but cheaper), have to wait that some one from XDA root this player (like the Z) and bring up a custom android SONY ROM ;)
