    I am new to the mp3 world. I am trying to play the music app through my car stereo using the headphone jack and the cars Aux port. The issue I am having is the vocals are horrible. Can barely hear them and they sound like I am in a empty hall. When I am listening out of the phone speaker all sounds fine. Should I be connecting a different way? Or is there a setting I am missing somewhere? I tried playing with the built in eq but not much difference. Any help would be appreciated.

    I've always used Bluetooth but if your car is not equipped with it that's not an option

    I have carried a cable with me to try and do this for years in rental cars, and I can't remember one car where it worked as it should have. Not sure what the deal is, but what I did in my non-bluetooth car is add:
    Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit for Cars with Aux Input Jack
    Check out the reviews online (read AmA_oN). This is an inexpensive way to get fantastic music from your phone. I will say the phone portion lacks a bit, but the music playback is Great!!

    This is taking me back a few years but if my memory serve me correct you have 2 different sources of audio. One is Line input which is 1 volt peak to peak non amplified and the other is your phones head phone jack. That is amplified if i remember correctly. Some head units dont play well with amplified input. I have a receiver in my truck that does. I can plug my M8 or Note 3 to it and with volume all the way up on my handset it gives me about half the expected input. However its a clean enough signal to work well. Its weird that the headphone jack, even though is an amplified source of audio is still to low for a line input which is a higher source of audio.
    Basically Line In is different from Headphone in.
    I may be a bit off on some of it but thats the gist.
