My earphones took an unexpected trip through the wash today and now the right earbud is a little quiet. I used to own an iPhone and under the accessibility settings, one could change the Left-Right volume balance. I can't seem to find a setting like that. Is there an app I can use?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S II X (t989) with Cyanogenmod 10.1.

What I did -- and my problem is an ear that doesn't work properly rather than an earbud that's been washed too often -- was to shell out for Poweramp which has built in balance controls along with its rather elaborate tone controls and equaliser. Well worth the money for solving this problem.

Does Poweramp's equaliser work with other apps? I use Google Play Music and have all my music stored there. I'm not willing to change players. – John Mar 13 '13 at 23:46
I don't know. Haven't tried it. – Andrew Brown Mar 19 '13 at 20:11
