    Why doesn't it sound as good on phone speakers? Feedback on mix?

    Hello, I put out a track on youtube, however it sounds different on phone speakers, as if it's almost too bright. I spent a whole day trying to level the volumes as I wanted. I'm still a beginner, so I'll take any type of feedback as constructive. Here's the track:

    EQ for adding high sparkle ?

    Do you have a favourite EQ plugin for adding high end to your tracks ? (I know every EQ can do this, but every eq interacts a little bit different to the source material) I'm talking about the stuff above 10khz.

    SoundCloud Mastering Service

    I noticed this recently and although I currently prefer to do them myself, I wonder how many of you have tried this and is it similar to other online mastering technology (LANDR?) Moreover, it seems some people like to complain of the soundcloud compression being quite bad! If that is true then...

    How to get that fat JXL, 2WEI sound

    The question might sound simple to you but I'm sure a lot of people face the same or a similiar problem. My own mix sounds always much thinner than my reference tracks. There is usually to much harshness in the highs, a lack of stereo depth and "lowiness". When I compare them to other tracks...
