Mp3 players sucks in 6600!

I've installed MP3 players (ultra MP3, MP3 player, Mp3go) for 6600. It works fine with the inbult speakers of course with lo quality. when I heared the songs thru stereo headphones (HDD-1), it really suck.. the quality is very very poor. Is there a way to improve this. I know 6600 doesn't have stereo, at least in mono the effect should sound good right?

Can we expect something in near future? or it's going to be the same for my phone..!!! I brought this phone under intension that somebody can develop a good software that will make mp3 sound good.

Unlikely, the 6600 has very low quality sound chip (whoever thought of that one should be sent on his merry way), the best you could hope is a 6600 specific player that boosts the frequencies that the 6600 cant produce, also I fitted in-ear phones, the proper in ear phones that look like earplugs, they boost bass a lot and it sounds much better.

Encode your mp3 as 16bps 8hz mono.

It takes out 99% of the distortion and has the side effect of making the files smaller too.
Sounds just fine then - took me ages to figure that out and was too convinced mp3 was crap.

Untill some nice chap on here shwed my the light!

I now listen to mp3 on my bluetooth headset and they sound fine.

The key is to use dbpoweramp to convert - most converters will not go down that low but this software has a specific 'phone' template.

Just don't expect dedicated mp3 player quality and appreciate it's a phone formost


Best

I think you mean 8Khz mono. :p

If it was 8Hz, then you wouldn't hear anything at all

This is the one thing I dislike about my 6600, the poor MP3 quality threw headphones. This is the area FOR ME where the p900 whips the 6600's butt left right and centre. O well.

I use my Ipod for music and my phone for everything else. One of these days Apple will combine the two but until then I'll keep them seperate.

Having said that in days gone by my Siemens Sl45 had a great mp3 player on it. I never understood why other phone makers didn't catch on.

Why do you need apple to combine them,try the SE p800,p900,Siemens SX1,Nokia N-Gage.

True, P900 are incomparable. But the thing I dislike with nokia is they didnot put all the features in their phone, though they are the best. An FM radio in 6600 wouldn't have hurt nokia. I curse the project manager who decided not to include FM radio in 6600.
