My complaint is very simple to understand.

Out of the box the phone has low in call volumes . (Even on Max volume)

Which makes it quite hard to hear people.

Plus the back speaker quality is atrocious. (Tinny and horrible)

My previous experiences with HTC are nothing but horrible. I won't get another phone from them for a long time.

You need to try some of the custom kernels that have the Desire HD sound fix. Makes the speaker 10x better

It has to do with software. After flashing Cyanogenmod onto my Droid Incredible, volume is noticeably louder overall.

I have the Inpsire 4G which is pretty much the same phone.

There are some ROMs on XDA that fix all the sound issues....

also, my phone stock sounds just fine when calling people, but when I'll admit when you play media with the speakers it's kind of low...and I realized I needed to change the equalizer to "Dolby Mobile" lol.

Well let it be software or hardware it doesn't change the fact that you shouldn't have to use a ROM to fix the issues.

From where im standing to me its just a poor product from HTC.

I shouldn't have to use a ROM to fix the issue. And it may or may not fix the problem.

And the debate Iphone 4 vs the HTC Desire HD is all opinions.

You keep repeating yourself, and htc does not make the software that are installed on their phones. And if an update and/or new ROM solve the issue, then it is the makes of the software that screwed up, NOT htc. If you really feel that switching to an inferior phone will solve your issue, fine.
I understand not wanting/having to update your phone, but that does not make the hardware at fault.

The guys got a legit problem, he's here to find help not find idiots.


Good luck with the phone, sounds a bit strange as i bought my gf one and the volume seems great maybe it was a one off? Or maybe some diff software on a diff release date?

Sorry i can't be of more help, all i can find is root fixes and hacks, is there no way of exchanging it? cos the one i bought is very loud and i compared it to my mates iphone 4 too, good luck

Yes i bought HTC Desire the first one and the speaker was below average. It had no bass or low freq sound whatsoever. Compared to my iphone 4 it sucked.

Im thinking of gettin HTC pyramid. But im guessing HTC will fail on the speaker on that one too.
