    For me it was the only player that would not lump my ringtones in with my music.

    Another vote for Power Amp. As a former sound engineer, I can say the audio performance and built in EQ are pretty good.

    I use MortPlayer - they have an audiobook and a music app. Love them both. The music player is organized by folders, rather than tags, so you can easily select which folders you want to play, thereby bypassing ringtones.

    I've... never had a music player do that to me. Ever. Did you actually put them in the media/audio/ringtones folder of your SDCard?

    Audio Galaxy rocks. It syncs your music from your computer to your phone. That way you can have ALL of your music with you anywhere you go, as long as you leave your home pc/laptop running.

    Other than that Winamp is pretty good also.

    WinAmp is working out well for me. Mainly because it's free and I like the widget.

    Yes, I did. I know it does not make sense, it was very frustrating. I did make a Media folder on the SD card with ringtones, music, and photos. For whatever reason it would not work for me.

    Lithium music player has a lot of features. It even has its own lockscreen when it is playing and it is free.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Giving that a try. Signed up at audiogalaxy.com, downloaded and installed the Audio Galaxy helper and designated my music folder (on an external drive). With 148,000+ mp3's (1.6 terabytes organized in sub-folders by genre > artist > album), I have a strong suspicion that it will take a very long time to sync. In any event, I can't wait to give it a go once all is synced.

    ive used almost every music player for droids since last year. no doubt the best is poweramp. I use it on my Dinc and its amazing. stock player is okay but for $5 u cant beat poweramp. the shuffle is better than the stock, and it gives u the album art. I use tunee for my music, and sometimes the art isnt there or its quieter than other songs. the pre amp and album art grabber blows this away from any other music player. if you want me to be picky, you may have to rename either song, artist or album to get the correct album cover, besides that, its flawless

    just found out that limewire has been replaced with frostwire and when you download frostwire onto your pc you can get the frostwire app on your android that automatically links the two and music you download goes strait into your standard player. I have close to 400 songs on my phone with no lag and its all free i love it. hope this helps

    No problem. It has been laggy on occasion but I think that's to be expected when syncing like this.

    Soon... very soon... this will be a question no one should ask. Anyways, I have not a clue why everyone dislikes the stock Android player, I actually love it. However when I was using the Vibrant, I chose Doubletwist. Best syncing, best music management, and lock widget.

    I don't like it because the sound quality is not as good as some market apps like Power Amp. But since I used to be a sound engineer, so I notice a lot in music sound quality, which the stock player lacks.

    pretty sure a good sound engineer would realize that their all the same file types, and eq's on a cell phone are like using a small band aid to cover a bullet wound. it's a joke. you don't need eqs, you need good headphones. And even then, power amp, win amp, whatever the hell you use - they don't actually morph the quality of the track. doesn't change it to some magical power amp file extension where it's any less digitalized.

    Cubed is the best free option on the market. If you don't like the cube, you can change the view to morph mode as well simple mode. Very good player, very cool looking, only a little lacking in random areas, but all in all pretty good.

    I've only had my X for about a month, but I have been using Zimly. It has worked pretty well for me. It is free and offers a lot of features. I like the widget and the lock screen controls are nice. It is still in beta, so they release a lot of updates, which gets annoying sometimes. It also has a video player. The only thing it is lacking is an equalizer, but it sounds fine without it. I have found it to be the best free option for me.

    You can get Zimly v. 1.4.9 here: Zimly Media Player - Android app on AppBrain

    but according to their description, Zimly the Coolest Media Player will have all future updates, so I grabbed that one from here (v. 2.0.8 beta): Zimly the Coolest Media Player - Android app on AppBrain

    Edit:
    Here is a android market link:
