After update do 5.0.2 PROBLEM: quality of sound dramaticly decrease

Hi

 

Why after update KitKat to Lollipop I can't operate sound quality settings? When I change equalizer or other settings nothing happens.

 

How can I fix it? or how can I make downgrade android 5 to 4.4?

1. It's up to the app developer to make this changes so the equalizer settings are supported

 

2. you have two options

 

a. contact your local Xperia Care

 

b. use flashtool

Re: ISSUE IN Z2 after Lollipop Update: Wi-Fi always On

Just updated my Z2 tablet to find I can no longer use the sound enhancements, before the system settings applied the effects globally. Now it seems to be limited to Walkman and any other app that has a EQ option.

 

Very disappointed, I not bother updating my Z3 now!!

Re: Equalizer problem after lollipop update

Sony has fixed it with the 2 latest walkman updates, one from whats new and one from play store. I was initially having this annoying issue..but after that 2 updates..it came back to normal awesome Sony music experience.. Thanx Sony..
