Default One speaker louder than the other

Hey guys, today I noticed that on my Z2 the sound coming from the left speaker is noticeably clearer and louder. The right one sounds as if water hadn't completely dried out, despite the tablet not being exposed to any. Interestingly the difference isn't as huge if I flip the device 180, then it sounds rather fine.

Could this be a software issue or should I warranty this?

I fear there's nobody being able to answer this. It's something you need to hear yourself.

It MIGHT be a software issue as it wouldn't be the only one connected with audio output: Try changing the orientation of the Z2 while listening to an audio source - sound gets muted for a fracture of a second. Shouldn't happen.

I just checked the audio output of my Z2: Both quietspeakers (they just don't deserve being called LOUDspeakers) sound the same. So it's more likely to be a hardware issue at your side; sorry.

The left speaker seems to be a tad quieter than the right.
