Thread: 3gs speaker

  1. #1
    Default 3gs speaker
    Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone else has this issue.... Most sounds, But mainly tri tone sms received sound, Sounds almost like the speaker is Blown or something. Its kind of hard to describe, and seems to get better if the volume is lowered, but on high sounds like crap. Anyone else have this issue? I don't want to take a trip to the apple store which is no where close if they all do it...

    Have you tried changing the Equaliser setting in settings-> ipod from whatever it is at the moment to either off or bass reducer?

    Eq is off, but I'm talking about system sounds, not iPod music

    I know but I have never really been sure if the equalizer just does the ipod Music or if it does all sounds, worth a try. Otherwise it most likely is a faulty speaker if it is distorting like that, worth the effort to get it replaced under Warranty considering what they charge for them.

    Seems like they boosted the volume a little too much. I would just reduce the volume to 75% or so and you'll be fine.

    I think they did great with the speaker, but WTF is up with speakerphone? It's still too low to hear, so it's still useless unless it's dead silent. Why?!
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    They have boosted the volume cause i used to have the ringer 4 notches down from the max and now i gotta put it 6-7 notches from the max. Everything sounds crisper and cleaner with the GS.

    Yes. It's definitely louder when playing any kind of sound other than someone's voice on the phone.

    My sounds are a little rough too. I appreciate louder speaker, but only if it actually sounds good..
