    I've been using the Samsung stock music app. I have adapt sound on and to my ears, this sounds better and louder than other apps I've tried. I have used power amp and Google Music but I always go back to the Samsung app.

    so what do you guys use? and do you also notice better sound from the Samsung app. Also if you have a better music app, please let us know what's good.

    I have been reading other threads about different equalizers and stuff. Perhaps it's not just the app bet also the eq and headphones.

    Hm that is odd. I have heard about other S4s having similar issues but not sure on the fix.

    I can say it doesn't happen on my HTC One... The worst that happens is maybe every other day it will randomly crash upon song switch.. Just started this about a week ago but I just force close it and open it and won't have any issues the rest of the day.

    what settings do you use on power amp. I get overwhelmed whenever I try and mess with the eq in power amp.

    PowerAmp for sure!
    Listen to the same song with PowerAmp and the Stock player on good headphones or speakers....you will hear a big difference, PowerAmp is WAYYY better

    Stock player. Other apps usually add to much distortion to the quality of the music, not sound level distortion but changes the way the music sounds.

    I'm using Jet audio which is really nice, has many presets to choose from, 20 band EQ, preamp, x-bass to enhance bass, reverbs, you can give it wider stereo effect and has gain controls.
    I also really like Rocket Player, nice layout, good EQ.
    I liked Noozy plater but kept crashing every time tried to access my Brower or other apps.

    What app do you use for music?-1374210197604.jpg Well if you like your music bass heavy, and this goes for anyone looking for a bass heavy setting ; First go to the "Present" option and choose "rock", then make sure the "Limit" option is not lit up, turn the knobs that say "Bass" and "treble" in a similar position as they are in the picture. Then move the "Preamp" slider to a little above the half way point. To me, this is perfect for any songs. :thumbup:
    Edit: Like smooth said, make sure you have a decent pair of headphones that have good frequency response. I personally use some beats by dre wireless cans. Gotta say, yes they are overpriced but tweak those settings in poweramp and if your a bass head your music'll sound amazing. :thumbup:

    Music Folder Player. Plays direct from your file folders, includes an EQ, works seemless with Bluetooth. Love it.

    Used the stock player until I got my Google Play Music account. I liked the stock player, but since I am now gobbling up what google has to offer in their library, I am using that almost exclusively. The built-in Google Play Music app equalizer does everything i need it to do, just wish it was more readily accessible (buried in a settings menu).

    Spotify

    I got so sick and tired of trying to organize and synchronize my music over all of my computers and devices and trying to find good quality downloads. I started using Pandora and Slacker, but they only play songs "like" the ones that I wanted to listen to, and I would run into the caps in a couple of days. Plus streaming ate a bunch of data. With Spotify I can build playlist of just the songs that I want to hear. They also have an excellent selection. There hasn't been a single song that I haven't been able to find. I have a yearly subscription that I paid $99 for. I can also download my play lists to my devices so I don't have to kill my data.

    I was thinking of getting the paid version of Spotify as well. Do you download your playlist on your home/office wi-fi or do you use your data? Also, does downloading the songs to play offline take up space?

    Yes, I use Wi-Fi to download the playlists, that way I don't use mobile data. The songs use some space but not nearly as much as full size mp3s do.

    Google music also allows this function. Check which option is best for you! .

    I tried Spotify on my phone but it only worked exactly like Pandora, playing music like the music I was looking for buy not exactly what I was looking for. Is that how it's supposed to work on phones or do I need the paid version?
