    OK. After the 2.1 update the native music player seemed to have its loudness messed with as I have to have it above 50% on earphones and you can barely hear some music on the external speaker. Now, I wanted to stream my music so I installed Gmote which by the way is a really nice piece of software. Well, what I found was that the loudness was back plus the music just sounded better, the percussion was crystal clear and not muddy, almost like an equalizer had been turned on. The music is LOUD again on the external speaker.

    So, I tried some other players and played music off my SD card. They all sounded like the native player.

    Went back to Gmote, and again the sound quality was fantastic and loud. What is Gmote doing that the other players do not do?????:confused:

    If this keeps up, I won't be buying that 16GB card. I'll just stream at home on wifi.

    i'm thinking the update messed up the sound levels for the phone. i'd GUESS that the sound level used by gmote is different than that of playing directly off the sdcard... noticed that a few of the sound levels were lower than before - i had to go through QPST and turn up the levels and it sounds alright.

    OK. So, I have found other posts stating loudness has been affected on various phones after 1.5. I know that there is some "legal" issues about using QPST, so is there something else to try to increase loudness. A posted hack does not work on samsung phones
