Android OS is a groundbreaking Operating System that offers many features that iOS and Blackberry can only dream of. However everything in this world has some limitations and it includes the android OS. The music quality in android pales in comparison to that of an iOS. It is neither very loud nor very clear.

But a few months ago HTC launched two cell phones- HTC Senation XE and XL with beats audio technology. The beats Audio enhancement improves the audio quality and gives out better bass and treble.But it was available in only these two androids.The good news for rooted phones is that they can install the Beats Audio enhancement on their Android phones.This enhancement will not show a pop up of Beats Audio when you connect the headphones but it does improve the audio significantly.Once again, this will not make your headphones blow out but it will make the audio crisp and will give out thicker bass.
