Audio Wizard on Zenfone 8 - allow us to just turn it off
I'm sorry, but the AudioWizard is just bad on decent earphones. Maybe on cheaper earphones it makes sense.
I tried AudioWizard with the following settings: Music profile, flat Equalizer, no earphone profile. That supposedly does not mess with audio output. It still does.
So, I did the rational thing. I enabled the debugging mode on my phone and ripped AudioWizard from the OS with the help of my PC, adb, and a few lines of code in PowerShell. It should not be that hard. Users should be able to just turn the thing off.
Now the phone sounds great, as the great hardware should have sounded from day one. You and your (?) soft, Asus, I swear. I almost sent the phone back.
