I've updated firmware & software to 1.54.401.10 (latest for international & carrier free) and get the same crackles as before.

Latest is 1.60.708.2 I updated last night.

I'm not sure, but I think the numbering is region specific and the first numbers don't tell if it's the latest version.

1.54.401.10 has been released 2 or 3 days ago, so it may contain the same changes as the 1.60.x.x update

Just to let you guys know the audio issue among others were fixed in the latest update.

 

Can you elaborate on this? Are you talking about the crackling or anything else? Which update?

I was googling and found this - http://www.venturesquare.net/525913

 

Notice towards the bottom of the page there is the Nexus with an app open - anyone know what app that is?

I've been trying to find a decent system wide EQ like what Sony has but nothing comes close ... Viper sounds too artificial for my liking, and I cannot stand Neutron's UI lol 

 

Anyone using something different that sounds great?

 

Thanks

 

Try n7player, it's a bit slow, but once you get everything setup and not change your library every 5 seconds, it runs smoothly

I updated 4 days ago but can't rememer the version number, I updated again just yesterday to this version.  That's the 3rd update since the M8 was released.

ah. it probably is a hardware issue. I really want this phone, but the camera, operating system, and features aren't to my liking. I'm going to have to stick with Nokia/microsoft mobile. (Microsoft just bought Nokia's mobile department. Its what Microsoft was planning since Nokia got a new CEO who just happened to quit Microsoft a few months prior, and chose WP8 as their new OS. The actual Nokia can start making phones again in 2 years, and Microsoft gets to use the Nokia name on the Lumia and Asha line until 2020... So, basically, two companies making phones with the name Nokia in 2 years.) frown.gif

I'm not having any issues with the camera or audio. My phone updated yesterday. They are updating one region at a time.

Yeah,it seems  you are out of luck with this phone if you want a Windows phone.

I personally don't like the Windows operating systems on phones.

Have you even tried it for an extended period of time?

Yeah, I don't get it either. Don't like it on phones or computers. Oh well, that's why different flavors are sold I suppose. 

 

I am psyched to have such a great Android phone with such great sound. Will help me hold off on purchasing a DAP. My Shure 846s are an easy load to drive (though hiss and output impedance need to be attended to), so no big need for the power of a separate amp/DAP.

you stick to your 1400$ mac's, and I'll stick to 800$ w8 gaming computers that are a boatload faster for less... Unless, you use Linux. Btw, I have never seen a person who likes the android OS more than WP8 after having both. I've definitely seen people who don't like WP8 because of the smaller app store, but the OS? Never.

I recently got this phone and i can say that i am fully satisfied in every way with it. However, i have noticed that with some songs the speakers at max volume tend to not hold out without producing distortion. I searched for a good example to make the speakers distort: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtzO2DC1WVU". When i play this song, the intro sines 100hz and up tend to distort the speakers of the M8. Are the speakers just reaching their mechanical limits? Or is my phone defective?
