Xperia Z5 :: Unbalanced Speaker Volume (top Speaker Too Quiet)
Nov 1, 2015
I have had a white Z5 Compact for a week and have now noticed that the bottom speaker is much louder than the top, ruining the stereo effect. I am sure it did not come this way out of the box. I didn't notice until after the recent firmware update (32.0.A.6.152), but cannot know whether this is the cause of the problem. I went through the hassle of factory reset and the phone still has the problem. I haven't subjected the phone to any physical trauma at all and will be returning it.
My speaker seems very quiet compared to my wife's phone which is exactly the same. Iv done the YouTube tutorials but no luck there. Other than swapping it with her in doors, is there something I'm missing.
I recently bought a Nokia E63 and after around a week of having it, the speaker went really quiet so I can barely hear what people are saying during a call and I keep having to switch it to loudspeaker which is quite annoying. Also because the speaker's quiet I can't hear my ringtone when I receive a call :/
I'm thinking of sending it for repair so I picked up a freepost return form from the Carphone Warehouse and it says to keep the Sim and memory card only but on the Nokia site the form says to hold onto the battery and battery case too?? Can anyone help me with this?Also I take it I send it back in the box right? With a proof of purchase?
My phone needs the volume turned right up so I can make a normal call, if it isn't right up I can't hear anything, have tried cleaning it but that made no difference. Does anyone know if this is a known fault?
My 4S microphone is fine when making a normal call, ie holding it to my ear or using headphones, but when I take it away and use the speaker for a call or Facetime I literally have to scream at the phone from 1 inch to be heard!
I have the xperia ray, and I have it with android 4.0.4, and my problem is that when I put music in the speaker with maximum volume, the sound is excellent, but when a I make a call and I put the speaker at maximum level, the audio has poor volume
I would like to know the official comment from Sony on the low in call volume of the X10. There are load & loads of people on the web complaining about the issue, on my X10, I can only hear a phone call if I am indoors in an extremely quiet location.. if I am outside, near a road etc I cant hear, and it is even worse on speaker phone. I would estimate the volume needs to be boosted by 50 to 100%, seriously the lowest volume of any phone I have ever owned.. which is a shame, as the rest of the phone is great.
Is there an official fix / patch in the works for the volume issue? or is this not being recognised as a widespread issue.. or is the hardward simply not able to do it?
It seems if I use "Poweramp", as a music player, I can adjust the EQ and boost the volume of Mp3's etc to a fairly decent level (much louder than the phone volume), so I'm sure it could be done with software...
I am only after an official Sony response, not people's opinion's, there are lots of other Posts like that, but I cant find any response from Sony to the issue.
There was an article Posted in August 2010 on xperiax10.net.. but I have heard nothing since. [URL]
a while back my xperia mini started with this annoying (and weird ) habit to slowly decrease the volume on the left speaker when playing music. It starts out as normal balance but after a few songs the left is starting to go down to a very low level. Not muting it completely though. It doesn't replug the headphones or even restart the phone. When I give up and leave it for a while it returns to normal though...for a while. Do you think it's hardware or software based? Since it takes a while for the volume to go down I feel it can be difficult for a support to properly analyze it. I'm running stock android 2.1-update1. I've tried different music players but it stays the same.
My one month old xperia has a problem, sound volume of bottom speaker is much lower then speaker on the top. Actually i don't remember if it was like that always or happened during my usage. It's so quiet that I need to apply it close to the ear to hear it as much as top speaker.
My Z5 compact while receiving a call has very loud ringtone volume only for about 1 second, than it drops by around 60%... The same issue occurs while listening to music on speakers, it is loud for 1 second than volume drops... It is not caused by any setting I think.
Just noticed that the speaker volume on my 3GS is a fair bit lower than it should be. My daugher's 3GS is much louder. Actually hard to hear the ringer when outside. Volume is set to full. Could it be dirt in the speaker grill? Headphone volume is fine.
I have problems with speakers and headset. Even at highest level it's sometimes hard to hear. For example GPS indications in the car. But also with Headset, if people are talking nearby I can't even hear the music!Is there some kind of security switch?
I just bought my E72 a day ago and tried to listen to one of the default videos. Had the volume level on max, even then the sound/music is not /barely audible. Moreover the Talking display also is not actually loud enough to be able to hear from a hands distance.
I bought a Nokia Lumia 920 three weeks and I am not disappointed. So far, other than problems that will be corrected in the next update, I am experiencing a low volume, when talking with someone in the loud speaker. Even at 30/30, I have to become closer to the phone to ear what the other person is saying. The problem seems to be related to the calls in the using the loudspeaker only because when listening to music or videos the loudspeaker volume seems to be ok.
Just got a Lumia 950 about 4-5 days ago. I've updated to the latest version and have already loaded it up with music from my MicroSD.
I've noticed that when I play music at full blast (30/30 volume), the volume seems to drop a little, and then slowly picks back up. This repeats about 3-4 times per song. I tend to listen to music in the shower, and I have realized the drop in volume for two days now.
Experienced putting music aloud and noticing the drop in volume from the speaker, even though it is set to 30/30. Voltage issue maybe?
My wife and I have new 3gs iphones with AT&T and I've noticed over the past 2-3 days my speaker volume has decreased to a point it's very noticeable compared to hers. I've made sure all volume levels are set to max on both phones, called a recorded msg and we both can hear a big difference between the two phones whether on speaker on not. In fact it's getting hard for me to hear someone unless I have volume set to max where 3 days ago and back I had volume set to ~ 75% of max. I've read about cleaning speaker covers, etc. but not sure if I should do this. My iphone is appx. 6 weeks old and hers in less than 4 weeks.Not sure if there is some setting I may have 'messed' with or not.
I purchased this application and after installing it I found out that the voice of the speaker is very low. The speaker is with British Accent. The data of Saudi Arabia is outdated. I need to have a higher volume of the speaker American male and female speaker.Latest update of data for Middle East.
What should I do when my speaker (iphone 4s) emits no sound? When I play a song, the volume changer (+ & -) is not below. And when I click the + & - volume (on the left side of the phone), there is nothing happening.
I have a gsm galaxy s6 in the UK. To me the loudspeaker output volume is low, certainly lower than the first one i had and im wondering if its anything to do with a recent update.
To explain further, when the s6 was first released i had one of each (s6 and s6 edge) and the handset was on 5.0.1
I was not entirely convinced by the handset and decided to return them and go back to my iphone 6. One of the things i was really impressed with on the handset though was the speaker output. I remember this particularly as it really stood out and i can remember that when playing music or watching youtube that even on 1/2 volume it seemed as loud as any other phone i had used with plenty in the bank to go higher.
Anyway, after a couple of weeks i decided to leave the iphone and get another s6. This phone was purchased sim free and came to me fully updated to 5.0.2 (no further updates available)
I find now that with this phone the volume seems really low and find myself playing it often above the 3/4 mark and not far off full. I know that these type of things are quite subjective but i am certain the earlier ones i had were much louder.
Can the speaker volume on my nokia 1661 be turned up? And if so, how? It is so quiet that to hear someone that I am on the phone with I have to turn on speakerphone or be in a completely silent room and press the phone really strongly against my ear. This is very annoying, does anyone else have that problem?
Our 5300 has developed a slight problem in that the volume of the received call is very low, we have tried receiving calls from other peoples phones all are low volume.Is there any way to increase the call volume or is this a fault that has developed?
