    This is a great app. Sound is great on my S5. Made a hugely significant difference. I was very impressed with the developer's response to people's needs which helped to sell me on the app. I read through the Q&A section which answered all of my questions regarding any issues I had. Very pleased with my purchase!

    For an android music player this makes my GS4 a remarkable music device. All my audio sounds fantastic and I can fill my playlists sick full of flac files for great listening. I like the detailed ui.

    No exit button and plays every time you plug in your headphones with no way to stop this feature. It drove me nuts.
