As the subject says, the problem is, that if I reduce my volume below a certain level, my music starts to sound strange. What I mean by this is, that in the parts where the volume of the music itself drops below a certain level, the sound completely switches off.

How did I find out?
While I'm reading I like to listen to music with my headphones at a very low volume. I just want it to keep my mood up, but I don't want it as present that it distracts me from my lecture. While reading I somewhen noticed that my music was kind of skipping. First I thought that Apollo had a problem playing my MP3's (I suspected a caching issue). So is tried two other players (mort player / clean music) but the problem still occurred. So I switched off all DSP-Manager modifiers (they where not working on the other players anyway). But the problem was still there.

Does anyone know this problem? And furthermore, is there a fix for it (besides buying headphones with a volume control on its cable)?

Hopefully someone can help me.
I'm using the current Replicant 4.2 0003 on my Samsung Galaxy SII.


p.S. please excuse my bad English. I'm not a native speaker.

All services are down, but the forum post was archived:

It looks like this was fixed in CyanogenMod. I didn't try to find the patch, but I'd expect that the patch is included in Replicant 6.0 and thus, the bug shouldn't be present there. So I'm closing this as fixed.
Feel free to report back if this is not the case. Then I'll reopen this issue for Replicant 6.0.
