Beats Audio available on any rooted Android running Gingerbread

Beats Audio enabled HTC phones have nothing to do with hardware; it’s all software – essentially it's just an advanced equalizer. Two modders over at XDA have ported Beats Audio into a mod that will work on any Gingerbread or Gingerbread-based ROM...

Can't you adjust an equalizer in Poweramp to get the same results, or is there more than just that?

So your telling me that the rezound is fat not because it has some kind of magic card to make music sound better, it's just fat cuz lazy htc couldn't make a thinner phone ?!

So it can also be added to iPhones ?!

Beats audio is bloatware. You want quality sound?
Use quality headphones- Not beats, Not bose, Audio Technica, Grado, Sennheiser are all dependable and affordable
Rip quality music- .FLAC or. ALAC so you can have archive-able hifi audio
Get a quality source- think outside the iPod, they're OK, but there's better to be had in terms of sound, for kess
If you're missing one link, you will not get the most out of the other components.
THEN, if you are not satisfied (or maybe just adventurous), tweak the equalizer to YOUR liking. Beats audio won't do a thing but overload your bass extension and make bass heavy songs sound like farts in your ears.

I have a Pair of Bose Q3's and I find them to be very good. Can't find any of the other brands you mention other then online. I like the pair I have because they are not big and bulky and it takes a hour to fully charge and last 20-24 hours of music play. I am looking into getting another set, I will deff keep some of the brands you named in mind.

I don't find Bose or Beats to be BAD headphones necessarily. My personal gripes with them stem from the fact that they invest more in marketing their products than actually developing them.The reason why you can't find the brands I mentioned in regular stores is because most people don't know about them- because they aren't heavily endorsed by celebrities in movies or music videos. The money goes into the product.
With Bose and Beats, you're mostly paying for the name. Though, I personally don't like the QC3s because, in my experience, the slight hiss from the noise cancellation is audible when listening to soft genres like jazz or ambient music.

And finally, use PowerAMP as the player of choice.
