Sony Ericsson Satio and Vivaz to get a music equalizer

As strange as it sounds, the Sony Ericsson Satio and Vivaz both didnít have a plain music equalizer with them. It has been included lately but rather strangely we must confess; as the equalizer controls have been released as a separate downloadable application from PlayNow! So it seems that the new Equalizer for Satio and Vivaz is a separate app and you can't access it from the Options menu in the music player as itís not integrated with it.

This means that each time you want to change the equalizer setting you need to switch to the app. The Equalizer enables you to pick from the following options Off, Classical, Jazz, Dance, Party, Pop, Rock, Spoken Word, Loudness, Mega Bass and Treble Boost. The most disappointing part however is that there's no option to create a custom equalizer setting.

One thing however is good about it, the setting will be retained even after you exit the app, or even after you restart the phone and it works at the same level for all installed players.

The Equalizer can be downloaded from PlayNow but it needs the latest firmware to work on the Sony Ericsson Satio; with the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, it will work with the release firmware.
