    Hi all

    Im not really one for portable music, never been an MP3 player/ipod fan. Thought I would give it a test today though whilst taking the dog a walk. I was quite impressed with the music quality. I found the interface pretty basic though, no better than my older PAYG phones. Just wonderd if anyone can recommend anything that suits the desire better? it might sound petty as it does its job, i.e. it plays music.

    I have a lot of music apps on my phone and still trying to find out the best one to use for playing mp3s.

    Suggestions would be great.

    Mixzing, whilst far from perfect, the adjustable equalizer built in, if set correctly, great

    Meridian is my favourite - it's the only app I've paid for. You can also grab album art on an individual album basis withit too which is quite handy. It has a built-in file browser and video player. There are various-sized widgets too.

    Album Art Grabber is also a great free app for filling those gaps in a more automated fashion. The only thing it lacks is a graphic equaliser.

    Ok, currently trying Mixzing, great so far. Is there a better way of browsing albums than just the list though? And is there a widget for the home screen (I dont mean the lock screen widget available on the full version) like the one with the stock player

    I tried a few of the music apps but I have now rid of them all as I ended up mostly using Moodagent. I know this depends totaly upon your music listening habits but I am more than happy to get a random but mood styled playlist when using my phone to listen to music. If I want a particular album then the stock player serves me fine.

    Have tried a handful of MP3 Players through my Desire.

    Personally, I find "Zimly" to be the best. Free download, small size, very capable and very easy to create all your playlists, search for songs/artists/albums. Runs conveniently in the background, has only FC'd on me once in the 5 months I've had it.

    No EQ settings, but does a pretty good job of auto-balancing the sound, regardless of playing through the phones speaker, headphones, bluetooth stereo or out through an Aux-line.

    :D

    Think I've tried them all now :rolleyes:

    3 Player is the best looking...
    Music Mod is the best all round.... Very functional (gesture control, good A2DP comaptibility with Nav apps) and looks good.

    Mixing is pretty good but not a patch on Music Mod.

    I tried Mixzing but found it munched my battery like there was no tomorrow. Far more use than the stock player. I compared both over a couple of days as I've been going into town on the train. So Mixzing's been dumped.

    Mixzing if you listen via headphones and set the EQ up correctly.. no contest, however it isnt the most user friendly and pleasing to use. I go for sound quality, and mixzing is the only one i know of, with a EQ that actually works.

    I use my CX300s on everything they sound fine on the Desire but the Desire is not too loud with any earphones.
    supplied ones are good for what they are, nice controls etc but I like inear phones

    Strangely not many people seemed to have tried Music Mod. Those that have all seem to love it. :)

    (It even works properly over Bluetooth with Google Nav unlike the HTC player :cool:)

    My IE6s are great with the Desire.

    It sounds a LOT better than my old iPod, because of the superior sound card.

    Don't expect much out of the bundled pair, bundled earphones are never good(and if they are, it's actually a bad thing :p).

    Just testing music mod, nice but can't see much difference from stock. How do you set one as default? Every time I try to do something, i gives me the option of all 3 player

    Find the application and select it. One of the options (near the bottom - have to scroll down) will be "clear defaults". Select this, and it will go back to asking you which one you want to use.
