Boost Sound On Your Xperia Z1/Z2 With This Sound MOD

Sony Xperia Z2 and Z1 sport nice specifications, but Sony hasn’t shown any improvements work in the sound department. Xperia devices have a pretty low volume, and there’s nothing you can actually do about it without making a tweak to your device. There always has been a need for the users to cross the boundaries and do something  to boost the sound on the Xperia devices. For the Xperia Z 1 and Z2, XDA recognized contributor  olokos has done this job.

Olokos has developed a SoundMod that boosts up almost all sounds coming out of your Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z1, whether it is notification or ringtone sound, it is music player sound, it is in-call voice, or it is some other sound, the MOD adds stereo speakers effect everywhere. Both the speakers of your device will provide the sound after flashing this MOD. The MOD even boosts up the headphone sound as well. The best thing about this MOD is, it won’t result in any quality loss, your device’s sound quality will remain the same as it was before flashing this MOD, there will be a stereo speaker boost only. The SoundMod has been through a number of versions and has been getting better and better with time, in case you haven’t tried it yet, it may be the best time for you to experiment with the sound of your Sony Xperia smartphone and get the best out of it. Let’s go ahead and learn how to install this MOD in order to boost the call, notification, headset, and speaker sound of your Sony Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, Z1 Ultra and Xperia Z2.

    Will it work with Xperia z1 (C6902) with Android 5.1.1 (already updated) kindly reply

    • @disqus_Rupesh26:disqus Most likely it will work. Best of luck.

    • @@disqus_Rupesh26:disqus as reported by @disqus_cPigKDJGte:disqus, the mod for 5.1.1 is resulting in creating a very unusual sound so we won’t recommend you to flash that for now.

  • eerozeteen

    Will this mod work with last CM11 from fxp ?

    • @eerozeteen:disqus Not sure, you will have to give it a try on your own.
