    Hard to imagine that no one has come up with a workable EQ for the Droid yet. I've got alot of music on it and use it more now than I do my iPod, but I would love to have some type of workable EQ that doesn't cause probs elsewhere like the Milestone does. Just very surprised the market hasn't had one yet...doesn't make alot of sense for something that would be very useful.:(

    I thought I had read somewhere that the Devs. of the Mixzing music app was adding a EQ. Maybe someone on here can verify that. I think Mixzing is the best music app right now.

    Yeah I'm jonesing for an EQ in Pandora even more.

    Sound quality is tinny, even through decent car stereos.

    Still WAY better than the crap on the radio though.

    Look for astro player. idk if its in the market yet but i think you can find it on xda. i tried it and it works although it didnt have any preset options yet, just all the individual sliders

    Hah, I use Pandora for the exact same reason. I drive about 8 hours a week, on two different days, and love having Pandora for that. I do agree there is quite a bit of sound loss from bluetooth to stereo to speakers. I know what I have in my car is louder, but the sound just isnt there.

    Just got a head unit with an aux in the front.
    I have the car mount and charger - and I have a use for pandora now! Sounds decent but definitely needs an EQ. I love being able to bookmark from pandora on the fly so I can download songs when I get home.

    BTW - I recommend the aux port on a head unit if you can. Pandora or Shoutcast will pause and navigation instructions come through speakers, and if you set your phone OFF of bluetooth and speaker, your calls come through your speakers too and the person on the other end can hear clear with no echo.

    Astro Player is on the market right now (Beta). There is a free and paid version.
    The EQ needs to effect the entire phone though to be effective. This does nothing to Pandora.
    Nice little app though.

    In the forum dog house.
    Mixzing's dev said thay would be adding an EQ within 2 weeks. (That was last week or so...) They have a forum.
    The EQ on Astro doesn't seem to work very well for me. I think it's a bit to optimistic in that he has too many frequency levels. Maybe he should've started with only 6 sliders.

    Yea. Dl it and 16 bands is way too many but it does work. Don't care for the player itself, though. Was hoping for a system EQ that works with any app. There's got to be a way to get this done.

    That's good to hear because I really like Mixzing.



    But yeah I'm really surprised it has taken this long for someone to add one. I thought for a while the sdk didn't allow for it (or maybe that was the case until now?).

    Having the EQ in Mixzing works for that app only. When I switch to another app, or to the home-screen, the EQ stops working and the sound drops/goes flat.

    I think what we need is a "global" equalizer that affects all applications, not just a specific music player. I'd even be willing to pay a buck or two for that!
