Re: Equalizer problem after lollipop update

I'm afraid i don't know for sure if this decision was made within Sony or by Google but as i understand it, the global Equalizer was removed in Nexus as well and i also found this: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/audiofx/Equalizer.html

"NOTE: attaching an Equalizer to the global audio output mix by use of session 0 is deprecated."

Re: Equalizer problem after lollipop update

Could you elaborate more? what do you mean by "only working with walkman app"? are you saying that other music players equalizers aren't working? if so, contact the app developers as they have to address that bug.

Re: Equalizer problem after lollipop update

the equalizer its only for the walkman app, other apps have different settings. Google music has its own equalizer.

@ville672 

 

got my hands on a Z3 running 4.4.4, I can't hear the equalizer working on youtube but it does on walkman, any suggestions on how to test this further?
