Default [Q] SRS WOW FX on the HTC One

Hello there!

I am a happy owner of the HTC one, and love it dearly. However, there's that little 'jem' called beats audio sitting on top of those amazing dual frontal BoomSound speakers. This, needs yo stop. I had SRS on my HTC Desire S and loved it, but beats, not so much.

I was looking round in the system/lib/soundfx folder when I came across a file called "" indicating to me that my phone did indeed have SRS libraries included in the firmware.

Could anyone tell me how to activate this and turn off beats by 'Dr.' Dre?

Many thanks,


PS: My device is non-rooted stock sense 5.5 running 4.3 Jellybean.
