    Just as the title says I'd like to know what music app you guys thinks works well with this phone. I've been using Power Amp forever, but for some reason since my S8 I've been having issues with the sound not being loud enough. I used to could set the app to where I could turn the volume up on my Bluetooth head set and the phone separately, but since power Amp updated their app I can still set it up that way, but the volume seems lower. At one point I could set the phone volume to 50% and could turn my Bluetooth up and make it loud without blowing out my eardrum. The Samsung app has been working, but it screws up my album art. I had a really good volume booster on my S8 but the app doesnt work on my note 9 yet. So any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Honestly, I've bought poweramp ages ago when I was still on the OG Galaxy S, but since the S7Edge, the stock Samsung app has been fine for me. Plus the recent updates with Samsung starting to integrate Spotify into the Samsung Music app, I find it going in a good direction.

    I agree with what you said about album art and and Samsung Music. Though I'm still with it for other reasons. Prior to my Note 9 I used Dub Music Player and really liked it. It had great album art.

    Have you tried turning up the Preamp on the equalizer?

    The Samsung app does work great as far as the loudness and the big thing for me with the Samsung music is that there's an option to have all my songs play at the same level , but it messes up my album art. I know it's a small thing, but that really bugs me. Lol

    I'm going to try the two suggestions and if they don't do what I want then I'll stick with Samsung music. I'll just have to get over that album art situation. Lol

    Weird. I've dealt with distortion before, but not since my old Optimus G. I only have the Preamp turned up a little though, you may be dealing with another issue.

    I tried it how you have it set and I'm getting the same.

    I'm digging through the setting to see if anything jumps out but sadly, I just don't know enough, apart from equalizer stuff. At least you still have an option in Samsung music, sans album art.

    Maybe email the developer?

    Naw it's not that serious to email the developer. Like you said I have another option. I'll just probably have to suck it up and deal with it. Thanks for your help though.

    The only reason I thought about emailing the developer is because I haven't heard of this issue. Maybe something to do with the update?

    I use rocket player. Great devs, fast updates if there is a problem, easy to make playlists and has ratings/playlist backup. lots of customization, Chromecast support. allows integration with iTunes. and has a decent equalizer.
    the Samsung app is just ok. doesn't allow over 1,000 songs on a playlist and won't read my m3u files.

    I use Google Play mostly and only use the skins settings available on the phone and I am pleased with the results.
    In the past, one of my main reasons for rooting was to be able to install Dolby Atmos. The Note 9 has it built in. While it may not be as powerful as the DA apps I used to use, there is less distortion.

    if your an audiophile, try out 3D Surround player. this app is just amazing with the sound it produces. Power amp is another great one. I've tried numerous music apps but 3D Surround is simply amazing...

    I've been switching from mp3 to flac format for a lossless format.

    Would I have to play all music through this app or can I control since output from other apps, say Google Play Music?
    How would I get Google Play Music to play through this app?
    There is not even an explination on the Play Store's app page.

    It doesnt play through Google music. It is it's own player with its own controls.

    I think it has to do with their own update. They just recently made some changes and I was having this issue before pie.

    I've tried 5 different players and none of them are giving me what I want. There's either something wrong with my ears or my headsets. Lol I'll stick with Samsung player for now. My album art ocd will just have to deal. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking here? My source for music files are my Mp3's and flac files on my SDcard.

    3D surround isnt as user friendly as some of the other players like PowerAmp. It does not go out and find Album art like PowerAmp does but the sound is great. If I get any distortion on anything I usually decrease the preamp setting and that typically clears my issues up. Unless of course the sound file created was over driven.

    I usually get my audio files from megaboon.com or just purchase the CD from Amazon and convert it myself with EAC.
