    What does everyone think is the best mp3 player out there in the market? Personally I like the one that came with the phone as it is very slick, although it doesnt have great audio set up features.

    Also, does anyone else find that some of the songs on yoir phone can sound excessively "bassy" at times? Like it has bass boost on to the pepsi max?

    I'll check out that one above too.

    Yeah it is sometimes full off bass and distorts the sound coming out of my ear phones. I listen to dance music and it seems to be constant distortion throughout some songs. however those songs are then fine on other media devices. Its odd. Could do with killing the bass a bit, surely i cam get a player to do that.

    3 is the best music player imo. The album artgrabber on 3 is superior to all the others and has found every album and song cover in my collection :),the layout is pretty slick and the dev is pretty quick to respond.
    I have downloaded most of the players and the next best one is mixzing.

    Must admit i didnt like mixzing. Also, I can't for the life of me find 3. I've searched various terms in the android market plus even browsed through the relevant section but to nothing. Do you have a link to 3?

    here is a link to a page about the 3 player (actually a superscript 3 which is why you cant search it in the market). There is a Tag link to the market further down the page which i used to download it. Cool app, but still no equaliser which I would really like, as I find music on this phone to sound a bit tinny.

    Sorted it. I really like it! However it is now making me want to go and get the album art for all my tracks, even if I dont have them because they are mixes.

    I've tried a few now but keep reverting to the stock player,it does what I need so I'm happy to stick with it.I hardly ever use the phone as an mp3 player though.

    Cubed seems great - I hated the ads in TuneWiki. Shame it doesn't fetch lyrics, but you can't have everything!

    I like the stock player its much more of an improvment over androids normal player, but I like to use double twist as the blue glow is nice. But in terms of really bassy are you coming from a ipod or something? it felt bassy to me when I moved from my ipod to my nokia n96

    Electronic music is all I listen to and find the Desire/Mixzing to be fine in terms of sounds quality when used with decent headphones (coming from an iPod). If i'm being really picky some of the lower bass notes aren't as clear though. The stock headphones are pants so if you're still using them get them in the bin and buy some better ones.

    I have been using MortPlayer on my Desire for some time now. What I like most about it are its great audiobook integration and the gesture recognition.
    However, it does not arrange music by tags but by its folder structure, which I have come to find annoying at times.

    Greetz!

    No I'm not coming from an ipod. I mean that the bass is heavily distorted on any headphone I use, including a pair of sonys at

    I too use it for listening to a lot of dance music mixes, but a question...

    Has anyone found an mp3 player app that doesn't have the small delay between songs? Listening to a mixed album becomes a bit annoying when there's a gap every five minutes...

    I don't like the interface of cubed, it's not intuitive and although looks good, it's just impractical. Although saying that I've supported the dev from the app he had before that!

    Still nothing beats mixzing. Also I have a way of using spotify for 2 months when only paying for one month, half price makes it more affordable :p (see my site for details)

    MixZing doesn't seem to behave with my album art (the stock player and Cubed do) and I can't find a way to force it to do a bulk download of art that it likes. It only seems to want to download art as each album is played which, if right, is not very user friendly for a large album collection.

    Just tried it - if anything the small gap between songs is even longer than the stock Android/HTC players.

    What is good about 3 Cubed is the downloading of album art which was simple and very good - even found my mixmag album covers with ease. Has a great-looking album art scroll, but practically speaking it didn't order my albums properly (though there may be something in preferences to order them by album title which is what I prefer), and when playing a song I couldn't find how to 'fast forward' within the song either. When selecting an album to play I liked it that it seemed to have a rolling playlist to add to so that you can choose albums to play on a list after each other, but this seemed to be the default which was problematic for me.

    I'd love to pay for a player that orders things in a simple lists, downloads album art easily, and hopefully plays tunes without gaps. I'm yet to find it though!

    Mixzing has a much smaller gap, probably the smallest gap I've heard so far which is great, but there's still a gap. The major problem with Mixzing though is that when you copy a mix-album to your phone, if they aren't copied to your phone in their own separate folder in your Desire it can't recognise songs with the same album information as part of the same album. As such, when you have a mix album, it invariably lists each song as a separate entity alongside other alnbums all by the same artist.

    An HTC stock player interface, combined with 3 cubed's album art downloader and cube viewer, merged with Mixzing's smallest gap between songs would be the best thus far... but I'll keep trying others!

    Meridian;

    Interface looks a bit a naff and blurry, no function to download album artwork, gap between songs for mixed albums is no better/worse than most others. Functionally though, it works quite well.

    Real Player;

    Non-starter as it orders the songs within an album automatically by alphabetically... I mean, simple things...
