Can any owner of new Lumia tell me about audio quality? Does it sounds better than Lumia 800? Nokia said that they've changed something in hardware in 900, and since I didn't found any review that covers audio I hope you will help me.

never heard the 800, the audio is okl, not better than my DVP. still need to check the headphone jack output. Its sad to know the quality, seeing that Nokia was known for its loud audio. Why remove something good that you were known for.

It's been fantastic. A little off topic, but my reception is much better as well. I've never had reception in my house or my office that was stable, now I'm rocking 2-4 bars. Nokia ftw.

Speaker sound is loud but it has that tin effect.

Lumia 800 had problems with sound quality before update.

Lumia 900 has so far gotten nothing else than praises for it's sound quality. Talking about sound through 3.5mm jack.

I made two test calls on both the 900 and the Titan 2. Both sounded loud and great (and without the background crackle of the Titan 1).

so the consensus seems the qudio quality is better/improved vs the 800? is there confirmation anywhere from nokia that hardware has indeed been modified/adjusted to improve things?

Speaker phone is loud and clear. Over earphones plenty loud and clear. I find the ear piece sounds a bit crap. More sound travels straight up than into your ear. A bit muffled as well. I'm thinking of swapping for another to be sure it's not my copy.
