While some users enjoy Beats Audio, many others enjoy having more control over their music. OEM music settings like Beats Audio and Sony XLoud have made many users happy, but others still believe that they should have more control over the equalizer.
Unfortunately, on devices such as the popular HTC One X, popular equalizer apps such as Volume+ don’t work as they should—until now, that is. XDA Senior Member Meltus has identified the problem as some coding issues with the One X’s audio_effects.conf. Meltus then created a modified audio_effects.conf that fixes the problems with Volume+ compatibility, and perhaps other equalizers as well. Says Meltus:
While messing with some system files (as you do) I noticed that on HTC devices with ‘Beats’ software, the ‘audio_effects.conf’ file (located in ‘system/etc’) is different from the standard ICS version and is missing a few values. I added the missing ones back in (whilst keeping all the beats stuff intact) and after a reboot, much more EQ control!
