DeLLiAnOfunfact, the Zenfone 9 is ar superior speakerwise.
1. Updated Android security patch to 2022-12
2. Optimized system stability
3. Optimized sound experience.
You can put mobile in full volume, no more cracks or something, but they leveld out the deep bass. So its like the 80's or 90's with in ear headphones.
Trying to blow some flat bass trough a 2 way speaker, so all Treble experience again.I noticed also reducing the max volume of speakers.
Edit:I also found couple of songs where the bass os normally good present, for these songs, the bass is putted way back in the background, sounding like its from behond a very thick wall. Or like there is far away a hugh event/party in your surroundings, and you can hear it far in distance.
Asus, in meanwhile you sold allot of these phones now, and some have badd sound, others dont. So its time to admit those phones should be fixed in repair points under garanty!
DeLLiAnObuy normal headphones with good frequency response
Cinema mode is slightly better then others.
I tried to use EQ from another music player, i can choose to use EQ from device or app. When choosing the music player app EQ, i can customize it, except the bass volume wheel. (Not supported comes on it.) Verry odd
Also i notice a break (left side) in the graphics of the music volume waves. Check photo. Its on all songs.
