*** How to Enable Stereo Sound on Your Nexus 5 ***

** Not my work!
** Just posting what i found via Drippler but didn't find in this forum!

Route audio through the front-facing earpiece on your Nexus 5 in addition to the existing bottom speaker to enjoy true stereo sound with all of your music and media.!

WORKS 100%

NOTE : Tried on Stock 5.0 only and found slight noise distortion while in full volume, from earpiece, on notifications!!!

No need to wipe before or after!

Note : haven't tried the revert zip!

nice, but it would be good if the video shows how is the sound before and after applying the mod.
and, as we are going to use the ear piece to play sounds, does it have any other effects as ear piece isn't designed to play sounds at higher volumes etc..,

It's actually one of the top mods in the Nexus 5 Themes & Apps forum.



They got it from XDA in the first place. Check out the OP to see who's mod it is and where it comes from.

There's also some newer versions in that thread that reduce distortion as well as enable true stereo (separate left & right channel audio).

I wonder if it's actually wise to crank up the volume on the earpiece. Nice thought, but I need my earpiece to work for phone calls. I can always use headphones or bluetooth speaker for music. (which will sound much better)

this is a foolproof mod i would say... when headset is connected, phone does what it is meant to do.! only when main speaker works, earpiece also work...
and during incall if you put loud speaker, sound doesn't get mixed! so all works perfectly and does what its meant to do!

like you said, earpiece isnt meant to handle such volumes, which is why during notification arrival, if the volume is set to high, you can hear a creaking sound... but this can be avoided if sound is kept below 60-70%...

It is the most interesting mod i have ever seen on android .
since i got my nexus i didn't like the sound quality at all , But making the earpiece to act as a speaker is a nice idea .

Now there is some balance in the sound direction .

Thank you for sharing
