Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Hi all, I got a same bug on My XperiaZ1....
To get back your bass, you need set back to default...

It's working after unchecked clearaudio+ and dynamic nomalizer...
And then don't forget to set your equalizer level is zero level (including bass)....

I am pretty sure there is a bug after you upgrade to lollipop... Because I have test if I am changed the settings of the Walkman(using Clearaudio+ or dynamic normalizer or change any level on equalizer), your bass will be gone....

Hopefully this could help you guys... And also hopefully Sonymobile team fix it as soon as possible....

Cheers

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

If it works properly in safe mode, this means that there's a 3rd party app interfering with Music app functionality. You'll have to figure out which app is causing this by installing apps one by one and testing between.

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Same thing happens to me on xperia z1 compact. I have to disable all sound effects or restart my phone to get the bass temporarily back. Please sony, don't make me regret my purchase. I even did a factory reset without any effect.

Re: PROBLEM IN WALKMAN APP NO BASS!!

alternative solution to your problem  is to reset your phone,encountered the same problem after playing with my settings. So after resetting your phone dont change any settings in walkman, just plug your headsets and you should'nt experience that bug again

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Friends i too have same problem with ma z1 after lollipop update.
Heres a sure working trick for bass...when bass is gone keep the song playing. Now follow these steps
1. Download noozxoide eizo rewire pro from playstore
2. Go to-->line in--->tick all options available there
3. Whoa the bass we missed is back

Firstly the nooz app doesnt triggers its own effects so chill u will enjoy the pure sony driven bass.

Well now to tell u this trick works for few hours only. The bug🐛 again shows itself. So forcestop this app. And then again the bass comes back.

Its quite easy though. But sony its must u clear dat audio bug.

Another issue is the battery life is worse aftr update. I see android os consuming most part of d battery in power management. Earlier in kitkat it was screen. NOW both os and screen. Need serious improvement on battery and sound. Otherwise everything is snappY

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

I notice that some similar problem started after I update the app Musicmatch. Suddenly the sound of the music players became very loud and bad, after few seconds went back to normal. When I unistalled that app, the problem was solved.
