Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

I have the same audio issue as everyone else. I have the Sony Xperia Z1 - It seems that when I have the equalizer and sound effects activated the sound gets distorted after a while. So, the only solution for now is to disable equalizer and sound effect off. It all started after the lollipop update. It has nothing to do with earphones or headphones as I have tried multiple from Bose, Sony, Creative Labs and others and the sound is distorted on all of them.

Wow I though I was the only one. I have a Z3 compact and am getting the same issue. I've tried MP3, FLAC, SD card, Internal memory. Factory resets. System repair. NUplayer, awesome player all with the same result. The sound eventually loses cohesion after time.

 

I've also had the phone replaced and I get the same problem.

 

Please, please fix as I bought this mainly as a music player where the sound was stunning on Kitkat.

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

I have Z1 compact and also have the problem of no impact of changing eq settings on my Walkman since Lollipop update yesterday. Really really annoyed about this as the Walkman was a massive factor in me choosing this phone. Tried the video app idea but no effect as far as I can see. Sony please get this sorted otherwise I will try to go back to Kitkat which had great sound.

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Sony Walkman WAS the best app for listening to music the UI was awesome the music quality of Sony was great.... And then came the LOLLIPOP update....with its new android UI and new freaking Walkman bug...can someone fix this problem coz it's really getting more and more annoying by the minute....
The music sounds terrible in my headphones.
The bass is completely gone.
Sometimes it doesn't work at all through the headphones.

Seriously SONY what are u guys trying to do...irritate us...Coz I was a fan of your work... Emphasis on the word "was"!

Re: Sony walkman player bug after lollipop update

Yeah and also on mine the various eq settings (such as jazz, soul) make no audible difference and in fact the majority of the frequency settings seem to be bang in the middle (i e. Not boosted or reduced below 0). I am sure they didn't look like this before. Rubbish Sony.

Fast forwarding on Xperia z2 lockscreen

Is there a third party application for this problem? Or will Sony be addressing this problem? Because it is quite inconvenient to unlock the phone, open the music player just to fast forward.
