Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

I have the same problem with my Sony Z1, after updating to lollipop, there is a definite problem with the sound. Like others I am experiencing, no bass, bad sound quality and high volume. Occasionally the sound is fine, occasionally it isn't. I have found no logic to it. It does not just happen with the walkman app. It happens with Google play music as well. This needs to be fixed asap Sony or you will lose many loyal customers!

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Hi everybody.

 

Here is a temporary solution. Found it accidentally.

 

In Walkman open settings,

then pick Sound Effects. 

In the bottom You will see Headphones.

Open it and cycle through random headsets. The sond should be back.

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Temporary solution:
Go to settings>apps>downloaded > Walkman >
And tap on uninstall all updates. This will downgrade your walkman to factory version for the time being and you will have your bass back. Wait till sony rolls out the new walkman upgrade with bug fix.

Hi zainnn, I tried the walkman app after uninstalling the updates but after a few songs on shuffle the bass is vanishing again.

Re: bug

Have you checked the Walkman audio settings? as you may have noise levelling enabled which can cancel out on some track the bass

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Only thing that seems to work for me is to go into Sound Effects and set the equaliser and surround sound to Off
