I'm currently rocking my Radar until my 900 comes in tomorrow. But I've been hearing that the music playback quality is not that great to my dismay..:@ Has anyone found this true? On my HD7 and my Radar I set my Sound Enhancer to Bass Boost. None of the Lumia devices have a EQ setting but HTC and Samsung devices have some form of a graphic equalizer.
- Can you compare the sound quality?
- Is there a app for this?
- Is Nokia planning an update?
- Has anyone heard of a hack or ROM that has a EQ of sorts?

I did order the purity nokia/monster in-ear headphones, which arrived today. There is quite a bit of bass on those. In addition you can control the music and calls (with mic). Highly recommended.

You don't need more bass. It'll make it sound like crap. But on a more problematic note, most (all?) Android phones with LTE have had a pronounced hiss in the background due to the LTE radio. I assume it'll be the same on the Lumia, but I haven't heard one way or another.

i use my lumia with my cars built in bluetooth to stream zune and it sounds good i get nice base and everything blends well for me. i beats by dre solo hd headphones work great and sound good with the lumia i don't think you need eq to make it sound good and i have had the radar, and surround, and galaxy nexus and in my car none of them come close to this.

I hope so. I was able to survive with my Zune HD without an EQ so we will see how the Lumia works out tomorrow. I'm from Miami and I live in ATL now so I gotta have that boom! lol
But in the nokia forums many people complained about the 800's sound quality and Nokia put out an update to address the issue.

This is what I miss most from my HD7. The sound enhancer settings were great for bringing the best sound out of your music, games and movies.
How is it possible that this day in age that this is not a basic feature for all devices that play music or videos.
If HTC could implement it onto their phones then why can't Samsung or Nokia?

One thing i miss from my htc one x is the sound, it was definitely better. Having said that the 900 has decent sound, and with a good pair of headphones it's acceptable. (And I like electronica so heavy bass is often a must for me too!!).
