Proline instructions

First try different headphones. If its still bad try the same MP3 files on another player, if its still bad its a problem with the way the files were recorded. If fine on other player, take batteries out of Proline for at least 3 minutes and try again. If still bad you can either replace it or get it repaired, its far cheaper to replace it. A used 2gb player is cheaper than a bus ticket.

First thing I'd do is compare the sound coming from your MP3 player to the sound of the same songs playing from your computer speakers, to eliminate any possiblility of the audio files being at fault (I realise you haven't altered them yourself but they could be faulty at source)

Then check the graphic equaliser in your player and see what the current setting is. Most audio devices these days come with a range of presets and these often include a karaoke setting so I'd check thats not been toggled by mistake.

Then have a play with your EQ settings to see if you can bring the vocals back up in the mix, vocals tend to lie in the 1-2kHz range of the audio spectrum so give it a boost in this region. You might also want to try cutting the bass end, too much bass energy in a mix can steal your headroom and lead to parts dropping out unpredictably like this. N.B. if your player only offers EQ presets rather than a proper hands on EQ then look for presets with names like Mid boost or Bass cut, even a general POP preset should be OK, just avoid things like Dance, Hiphop and the like.

I use Samsung C3010. when playing music player, I don't hear any voice. I only hear the instruments. I've tried many airphones but nothing. can it be solved?

How are you obtaining the music that you play on the Samsung C3010? If you're recording the songs yourself, it sounds like you are recording one channel out of phase with the other. This phasing "effect" is how vocal eliminators work. Try playing back music from another source and see if the vocals return.

Mach Speed Eclipse: No Vocals!!

This is caused by the grounding connection on the earphone socket becoming disconnected, either due to faulty earphones or poor soldering.

If changing the earphones does not work, then the only fix is to dismantle the player and re-solder the headphone socket connections.

Checked the EQ settings in the Settings part fo the menu, or do a factory reset in the Settings menu.

Can't hear vocals

If you have a equalizer setting then you need to access it and increasy the middle sliders. It could be you accidentally altered the equalizer setting/mode.

No vocals!

Maybe your headphones are pulled out halfway.
