Although Sony Xperia Z2 was not much of an upgrade over the earlier Xperia Z1, it has two stereo speakers at the front that the Xperia Z1 lacks. Xperia Z1 has just a single mono-speaker depriving the users of the stereophonic sound effect.

Now Xperia Z1 owners can rejoice. Senior member dontbelieve of xda-developers has developed an amazing update that gives stereo effect to the sound. The new mod converts the earpiece of the Xperia Z1 into a secondary speaker so that the sound now comes from two speakers rather than the single mono-speaker.

As a result, users can get a stereo sound playback coming through the two speakers, the primary speaker at the bottom of the device and the secondary speaker which is the converted earpiece on the upper side of the handset through which you make calls.

If you want to get the update, it is available at the update thread by dontbelieve at the xda-developers website. The update has been modified to version v2.0 which is available at the dropbox link provided. For Cyanogenmod, you have to install another version, the link for which is provided there. Also, it is a good practice to first take a backup of your files so that if anything goes wrong, you won’t lose anything.

So what do you think? Are you going to get the update?
