Help galaxy s4 and aux car radio issue


I have just bought a galaxy s4 mini after being an iphone user for years. I have got an audiobook on google play and went to play it through my seat ibiza fr aux cable - it sounds dreadful! Tinny and whiney and totally "unlistenable" . I plugged in my iphone to make sure it wasn't the car or the cable, and it was perfect. So I know the phone is the issue here.

I am using the built in aux port and plugging it Into the headphones port. When I listen using headphones, there is no problem with the sound.

is there anything that can be done? as I am currently spending hours to convert my audiobooks from itunes.

I am impressed so far with this phone, but if I can't listen to music on it in my car then I will be so cross!!

Make sure the cable is going all the way in, especially if you have a case on the back of the phone (in fact, take off the case and try it that way).

Welcome to the forum drinkeroftea.

I've moved your post to the S4 Mini forum, for better visibility from folks who have the same phone.
However I can say I had a similar problem with my S4 and the fix that AllanLaw suggested was my fix also - the cable wasn't fully into the phone.
You might also check for a piece of lint in the phone jack.

Try the audio books in a different car (or at least through different external speakers). I'm wondering if there is a problem with the conversion process.
