    Hey all,

    new to this great forum.

    anyways i could not find a specific thread about my question so i thought i would start one.

    is anyone else having the issue on their speaker that it gets distorted when the volume is high. plus i think the sound is not even that loud when its high.

    is this how the sprint htc hero is or do i need to get a new one?

    thanks in advance.

    I have no distortion even at the highest volume. All my music is encoded at 256k or better. This is the best speaker I have ever had on a phone.

    Mine sounds awesome streaming Pandora. I've only turned it all the way up a few times cause I don't want to risk blowing the speaker, but when I did it sounded good. I usually have it 3/4 of the way up and it's plenty loud.

    You aren't crazy. My speaker sounds not even remotely as good as a cheap (but decent pair of headphones. ANY speaker can and will sound distorted if you are pushing it beyond it's limits (ex. Just because I have legs doesn't mean I can run a marathon).

    FWIW, I worked on/repair speakers on a daily basis as part of my job.

    Not really, but I've only left it at full volume for a few seconds.

    My speaker is terrible too. There is lots of distortion. My external speakers and headphones sound fine though. It isn't as loud as I like but then again I was born in the 60's and nothing but earblowing is loud enough for me.

    Hmm, I don't think the phone is very loud but at it's maximum volume it's still decent. I just wish the vibration was a bit stronger imo.

    Everyone complaining about how quiet the phone is try this. Put the phone on a flat hard surface face up. I noticed when I do this it sounds alot better. Like when I'm folding laundry I put it on my dresser top and it sounds great. Then I found if I set it on my alarm clock with the phone speaker pointed into the clock speaker it sounds even better. I don't know if it's the sound being bounced back or what, but it does improve the sound. If I'm holding it in my hand it still sounds decent though.

    I have had 3 different heros all because one or both speakers distort or rattle after a few months of use. Now my current one is doing the same thing and i was EXTREMELY careful due to previous experiance not to have the volume higher than 3/4 of the way turned up which imo should not be loud enough to blow the speakers. The speakers do sound good but for some reason mine dont last.
