    SRS WOW-HD Sound for the Q9C!

    I'm not sure if this has been posted yet as I could not find it in a search, but here goes.

    I found this on the XDA Forums. This is the same software that ships with the new HD Model Motorola S9 Stereo Bluetooth Headset.

    I installed in onto my "device"... NOT Storage Card and after asking me to soft reboot it works GREAT! My 1st Gen S9's sound REALLY good now.

    Try it out for yourself, i doubt you'll be disappointed.

    Problem: files show as _setup.xml, the rest as ***.001, ***'002, etc.
    I've seen this before, how do I install?

    Change the file name from .zip to .cab.

    Place the .cab file on your device and then run it from there.

    Once it's installed, it should be located in your start menu. I have STK-rc08 and it is in my start menu.

    Shouldn't be to heavily buried.

    I can't find it. It's not showing up in the start menu and I can't even find a program file folder.
    It's installing as "n1958 & QooQoo SRS_WOWHD_ARM".

    It's not in my start menu, either. I installed it to the device, not the storage card....

    Thank Version is working, Thanks.
    Sounds a bit better on the Q, "streaming" through the stereo during tonights workout will really tell the difference.

    BTW it seems the settings are tied into "audio enhancements".
    Changing those settings changes the WOW settings and changing WOW settings blanks the headsets "enhancements".

    Yup, the new link works. Still trying to figure out the program - can't really tell much difference in sound....

    I don't really think you'll notice too much difference if just using the phone's internal speaker. Get a high quality pair of wired headphones or a pair of the Motorola or Samsung wireless bluetooth ones and you'll find that it's really easy to tell the difference.

    I'm using the Motorola S9s and am now pretty impressed with the sound quality. Trust me, i'm an audiophile. If you don't believe me, check out my company's website and you can just guess at how extremely BaD-A**! my office sounds.

    Okay... I've been playing with this for a while now and here are my own personal "optimal" settings.

    I primarly listen to lots of different rock music. Alternative, punk, ska, "some" rap (Beastie Boys, Run DMC, 2-Pac, 50-Cent, etc), 90's grunge, etc.

    I'm sure that those "classical" music listeners or those that prefer a more direct genre of music will need to play with these settings more to refine their desired effect.

    The quality of your headphones count for a lot too. While I use my S9's most, the following settings sound even better when I use my Sony ear-buds.


    Audio Enhancement Settings:

    Surround Sound - 3: With SRS in play, this actually has an effect on the sound quality. It "opens" up the music. Gives it some space as if you're listening to live instruments.

    Bass - 5: This really evens out the bass tones.

    Clarity - 1: This enhances more of your higher tones like drum symbols, guitar solos, etc.

    Speaker Size - Small: This setting changes up mid-range tones. I have this set to small because it enhances the bass lines.

    SRS Wow-HD Settings:

    Extreme - 60%: This also enhances the "space" of the sound. If set too high it will cause a slight echo in treble depending on the song you're listening too. This is more noticeable with songs that contain a lot of high-pitched guitar.

    Focus - 15%: This setting lowers base and raises treble depending on how high you set it. I prefer base tones over loud "high-range" so I keep it low.

    TruBass - 100% - This is setting is self explanatory. Turn it up and ROCK! :2cool:

    If you don't think you hear a difference. Put on a song you REALLY like and listen to it closely as you toggle the WOW XT On and Off.
