PowerAmp Music Player
The stock Android media player does a decent job, but it certainly could be better. I first downloaded PowerAmp after checking out CNET editor Josh Goldman's post on the best Android music-player apps and haven't looked back.
The app provides built-in 10-band graphical equalizers for all supported formats, as well as presets, custom presets, bass and treble controls, and more. The interface is attractive enough and other features include a tag editor, widgets, album art support, and visual themes.
It might be a bit much for the casual listener, but if you're passionate about music and sound quality, PowerAmp gives you plenty of customization options. You can give it a try for free using the 15-day complimentary trial before committing to buying it, but for me, the enhanced music experience was worth it.
Price: Free 15-day trial; $5.17
