Droid Razr M - nice but beware the audio - Page 2

post #16 of 19

Ok, well I have a RAZR M now and I have been playing with it and my Shure SE310 IEMs this morning.  I do get a bit of background hiss.  Honestly, it does not bother me, but considering where I am posting right now some people might want to try before they buy ;)

For stock player it helps somewhat because Google's EQ implementation is simply atrocious. At least through my Westone W4s and Grados SR-125 Razr M headphone out sounds real bad (flat, congested, veiled, noisy) through any player I tried other than Neutron. Every time I try to switch to something like PowerAmp I'm amazed at the magic Neutron pulls out provided you enable 64-bit rendering, randomization and let it control gain plus lift lows and highs a tiny bit via EQ. Still sound is worse than out of stock, non-EQed iPhone 4 but not by a lot.

yeah I'm not SUPER picky about sound but I have a pair of image x10's so I can tell when the EQ is messing with sound quality. What is this neutron program you are talking about? I've never heard of it

I'm contemplating buying the European version, the Razr i. I read somewhere that Jelly Bean fixed the audio issues, can anyone chime in about this? And more generally, is it a good alternative to a dedicated player like the Sansa Clip?

The original version had terrible rmaa results but maybe this is fixed now
