    Does that make any sense? I can do Beat's over BT on my HTC One X+(Android) using my HTC A100 BT adapter plugged into my car OR my bluetooth Beat's headset, this Beats Wireless - Bluetooth Headphones from Beats by Dr. Dre

    but I can't do Beat's over BT on my 8X.. does this make any sense???

    I wonder if it has something to do with the implimentation of the hardware amplifier.

    Yes its a hardware amplifier you can't add power to the audio signal wirelessly!! the audio signal goes into an amp -> the amp boosts the power to the signal -> More power to your headphones but it can't boost the bluetooth signal!

    The same thing is true for my new Nokia 920. I get great Dolby massaged sound over the cable but my JayBirds don't benefit. I'm not complaining, though, it all sounds great.

    DJ, your info sounded pretty good until I read this,

    Hands-on with the HTC One X+ and Sense 4+ | Android Central

    "Although there are no Beats earphones included in the box, HTC has improved the rear speaker on the phone, adding a built-in amplifier similar to what’s found on the Windows Phone 8X."

    So either you're incorrect, or the HTC 1X+ disables the hardware amp so that Beat's goes over BT..

    The equalizer may work over BT as its only adjusting the signal like any EQ does but the hardware amp will NOT make a difference its impossible!!!! it cannot BOOST the bluetooth signal in terms of power! that's like wireless electric! BT can only transfer data!! The hardware amp may stay on but only the volume would be louder and your speakers 'would' be underpowered regarding deep bass etc with out that amp but I assume BT headphones would have a built in amp anyway as they aren't getting the power from the headphone socket! if that makes any sense... I've only just woken up.
