I love the Beats software on my phone, though I didn't get the phone because of that or the earbuds, which are very nice. I don't think it's fair to say that it doesn't do anything, because it does, but since I can't use it on anything beyond MP3's on the stock app, I got the EQ free app from the market and....well I like the Rock setting without bass boost BETTER! Gosh darn it all to heck (to keep it clean)........this doesn't mean Beats is useless, just that I might want to keep it off now just to use my EQ app, since it works on anything! I don't know why I never got an app like this for my OG Droid which is now retired, but it might be have been because I never used it in a car stereo that didn't suck, especially my own car, and my earbuds I used were skullcandy, which I think are ok, but not as nice as the beats one with my Rezound. Please, post your thoughts about this subject, love Beats, hate it, don't care either way? Do you think it's just to make Dr. Dre MORE money, or do you think it's just not enough and not adjustable, so it causes more frustration than improvement. How do I brag about beats to people who like that and are jealous of me when I can make better sound without it! HaHaHa....I do believe that turning OFF beats makes it MORE flat than normal sound so that it makes you want TO use it... After some experimentation, I can see why those Beats earbuds are so awesome, compared to my skullcandy ones, they friggin rock! So this isn't too serious, sorry if you wasted time reading.
