    I use Slacker and Pandora every day in my car on the ride to and from work, via bluetooth.
    Every Froyo rom I've tried (CM 6 alpha, the straight FRF57, FRF84, etc) sounds terrible.

    Its like the highs and lows are WAY overboosted and distorted.

    Because this has been common to every rom I've tried to date, and it is always fixed by reverting to my rooted 2.1, I usually do that.
    But I'm tired of missing out on flash and chrome-to-phone. Is there a sound fix?

    So is it just me, or do other people experience this also?

    I had that problem too.. It seems to have gone away though. Have you wiped when you installed the new ROM?

    Issue 9308 - android - eaac+ and aac+ decoding sound quality problems (Android 2.2) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    This appears to be related to extended AAC decoding. The bug reporter clearly has a grasp on the details that I do not have, but the bottom line is that the streams from pandora et al. arent being decoded well... We're lucky it works at all I suppose :)

    Yeah, I wipe properly (both with ROMS and in real life, lol).

    Thanks for the good info guys, I hadn't managed to find any threads about it, and I was wondering if it was just me.

    I saw one post in a thread on Chevy's SS 4.4 that said audio in pandora was fixed. He is using FRF91, I wonder if that fixes it?
    I may just have to give it a shot...

    But according to the official bug report, its still broken in FRF91
