Dear all,

I just got my Z1 2 day ago and found out that the equalizer and sound setting don't work with FLAC file. The mp3 file is working fine.

Did anyone notice this ?

P.S. The walkman is last updated version as well as the OS itself.

Best Regards,

Arm

FLAC are not well digested by the Walkman application I think.

Instead of massive consume of space with FLAC use MP3 in 320kbps, convert them and you are done.

I know, maybe they made some restrictions. This is something unexplainable.

Interesting, I have never had this problem playing my flac files, always been able to equalise the sound, maybe these is an issue with 4.3 that I have not yet experienced.

Yes, I have the same problem with .136, Update and Factory Reset can't help, I've tried everything, after Factory reset it works but only first time when u playing, after that only mp3. Rolled back to .290. There are numerous reports about this problem on different forums, i repeat, this problem only in the last .136 firmware

Thumbs down
This problem is ocurring when streaming music in Spotify as well. I'm guessing it affects all players.

EDIT: Apparently it does work in Walkman but not in any other apps...

I don't think it's such a big problem to roll back to .290 FW.

It would be sad because the last firmware improve so many thing.
