You should be much more specific in your bug report. Suggesting closing if no details are provided.

I'm using mediaplayer2 and playing mp3:s and ogg:s without problems. I'm using mixer settings that are described in the wiki to balance low frequencies and have set the main volume from 100 to ca. 95. Audio quality is sufficient for my uses (in car via an adapter etc.).

well , i thought the issue is very clear to everyone thats why i didn't specified much detail .
if you believe that this issue is with mixer setting , simple question would be 'why mplayorking great' , its clearly is mediaplayer2 issue and i believe this bug report is necessary .

i did exactly followed the wiki as well , but still i hear lots of Noise and noisy echoes of music , i can hear more of them when using Headsets .

I have this problem as well.
Here are my findings:

The sound quality of mediaplayer2 was very poor.
This was caused by the volume of mediaplayer2.
After turning down the volume in mediaplayer2 to about 7%, the quality was very acceptable.
I tried to put the volume of mediaplayer2 to 50% and edit the alsa volumes using alsamixer.
This did not give any audio quality improvements.


mediaplayer2 volume: ~7% - good quality

I hope this helps.

I don't think we will keep maintaining mediaplayer2 so closed as community.
