    The sound quality when connecting to an audio system is actually ridiculously horrible when playing music from device. Other wise phone is great. Terrible for personal audio though.

    It has more to do with the device. For some reason the music goes in and out when using Google play but only when connected to a head. Set or auxiliary cable. This is annoying. Anyone? Advice please.

    Yes I'm sure it is but that's a work around. I use whatever phone I have as my music player to not just at home.

    I thought I saw a review video that showed a fairly detailed configuration process for the audio. Something like guided eq settings?

    It has nothing to do with that. The phone keeps automatically lowering it's volume and not playing unless I unplug and plug back in to device. Something is up.

    I have just listened to a podcast for the last hour while driving. Played the sound through my car stereo and sounded fine. Only stopped to play a notification sound.

    Didn't notice any difference from my S2.

    I've played mine through headphones for awhile today and it sounds great. No issues with starting/stopping music or audio changing volume.

    Oh, I thought you were referring to to sound quality.

    Sounds to me like your device has an issue.

    Yes I just might. I'll keep testing. Basically I have my phone on its back with the screen shut off. Every two or three songs the volume is lowered but the device volume still says it's high. It seems like something that can be adjusted some how. Its very annoying. I'm using Google play app through auxiliary.

    Interesting, I am not having the issue via the 3.5mm jack or the built in speakers, but having the same issue using the phones USB to 3.5mm. Plays fine then gets muted, then fine, then muted, again and again. I was listening to a podcast and thought the speaker might be turning away from the mic, but then I played it from the 3.5 into the aux in on the car and no issues. The USB to 3.5mm was for my Note 2 so the pin outs might be different, waiting for one to be made specific to the Note 3

    I have absolutely no problem using bluetooth only the auxiliary. When I get my headphones I'll check those. Who knows maybe it was the cable.

    Well I did a restart and tested headphones and there was no problem. Now there is a slim chance it was the cable but it's doubtful considering it was very precise the way it was failing which was pretty much every two songs. I guess I'll have to see.

    OK after further testing it seems the phone works fine with headphones and bluetooth but has a problem with auxiliary cables and it only does it every 3 songs on the thirds song. This just seems very odd. I've never experienced anything like it. Any help would be appreciated.

    This doesn't seem like a hardware issue but I might have no other choice but to exchange it. It just seems like it must be a software related feature. It's too precise being every third song. Also considering I'm using different cables then originally so I know Its not the cables. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes I tried it in a receiver and another speaker setup. Both same issue with different auxiliary cables. This is very odd behavior. I'm just going to exchange. Let Samsung figure it out when they refurbish it. Clearly there's an issue.

    Well I figured it out. While listening to music, I had Wase running at even though I had sound off in Wase, every time it wants to provide navigational assistance (talk to me) it is dimming the sound from Google Music. Haven't figured out how to solve it (yet) but at least it's not the phone.

    I have not even opened the music player yet,, forgot i had one,, only use Google music. What many people don't know is yes your music is in the cloud but Google music provides you alot of space to save entire playlist to the phone so you don't have to stream it if you don't want to.

    I have this same issue! Every third or second song I play is lowered to a inaudible level. The system media volume doesn't change, just the output. All cables with a remote have this issue. Never the speaker. I really don't want to have to exchange my device. Any solutions? This is really annoying. I am tired of pressing pause then play all the time.

    Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the sound is also lower, than on my S3. I've always used double twist, and never had a problem otherwise.

    So is this an issue with Google Play Music then? if double twist works fine, then this must not be the device.

    I use my Note as a music player all the time. In the car connected via 3.5mm mini cable to my stereo. At home via OTG cable to my Headroom Total BitHead headphone amp for bit-perfect HD audio. I love it, no complaints whatsoever.

    Live long and prosper.
