LG Nexus 5X comes with only one speaker which makes the sound less audible. If you’re disliking the music experience on your LG Nexus 5X, you may be in a need of some method to enhance the sound staying on the same device rather then being disappointing and thinking of moving on to another device. Since we have a great community of developers working at XDA, a solution was expected for sure and it’s here now. XDA senior member sshafranko has posted a Surround Sound MOD for our beloved Nexus 5X. What this MOD does is, it activates your earphone speaker to work with your phone’s main speaker at the same time while the music is being played or you’re watching a video, movie or any other sound coming out of your device. It doesn’t beat the Sound experience of the Nexus 6’s dual front speakers, but its fairly good as compared to that of the lone-speaker on this phone. This MOD is named as Surround Sound because it gives you a Surround Sound-Like experience, but its not the real Surround Sound sound effect. There are two different forms of this MOD available. You can flash Surround Sound and also flash a MOD to increase the volume coming out of your handset speaker. Let’s go ahead now and have a look on the guide.
