Music on the N80 - distorted bass??

Don't know if this is normal. I tired loading mp3's on my N80 using PC suite. Once loaded,during playback the bass is somewhat distorted. I tried fiddling about with the equaliser but no difference.

I converted the mp3 to the correct format when prompted on pc suite in the hope that it would sound better but no joy. The bass is distorted through the phone speakers and headphones. This is very disappointing as I bought a 2G SD card just to load music in it to go on holiday??

Can anyone help??

Not tried converting the MP3 to AAC yet, dragged an MP3 folder over at it plays fine (Ultimate NRG) quality bass through headset.
Bin the converted files and send over the MP3's instead and report back to us.

Excellent..I just transfered the mp3 files rather than converting and now the sound quality is superb!

Many thanks guys!

Why bother converting if the quality of the sound is so poor!! stupid aac mp4 files!!!

The default AAC setting is set to 48 kbps. If you up it to at least 96 kbps then it should be fine.

Converting to AAC (using the default settings produces some fairly medium quality music, especially when transcoding from mp3). The advnatage is that you get smaller file sizes and thus more music per mb of space used.

You'll do better with higher bit rates as mentioned (change in the options of music manager).
