Question [Q] Strange Audio Issue

So I've searched and not had any luck with a problem like what I'm experiencing. All kinds of low volume, or even tinny sound, but nothing like what I'm experiencing.

So when I've got music playing (from an app like Pandora) there is this popping sound that happens. It kind of sounds like it's clipping the highs or like the song was badly encoded. I thought at first it was just the song I had on, but I listened closely and it's on almost every song. Now I haven't tried loading some mp3's of my own on the phone yet to see what will happen, but I suspect the same results.


Did I get a bad phone? Is this a common issue? I'm still well within my 30 day grace period so if there is a problem I will take the phone back and get it replaced.

For some more info, the phone is rooted and running Cyanogen Mod 7 (I installed it this evening hoping that might fix the issue). Any help or a pointer in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Try some of your own mp3s to make sure it isn't the phone. If it still happens try clearing Pandoras data.

Also check into the encoding/streaming settings for pandora.

I might also try clearing the dalvik to help prevent any issues as a start.

This happens on one of my songs using poweramp. I am also on cm7. Try messing with the dsp manager.

Happens with me all the time! Any song, any ringtone... even the stock HTC ones produce a bad sound

The phones says Dolby surround and does not even produce normal quality sound!

I have the same issue (I think)

My ear piece volume is very loud and the sound is great but when it comes to exterior sounds the Inspire makes, it is really horrible!

My ringtone, email and text sound notifications are so low in volume (With the volume set at the highest level for all) that I don't even notice it has gone off.

I just bought it 3 days ago and coming from the HTC HD2 I am really disappointed. I missed 6 calls and dozens of texts and emails just today because I can't hear it when it's in my leather holster, same holster I used with the HD2.

I'm not sure what to do to fix it and I would really appreciate any suggestions to improve the sound levels. Otherwise I'm gonna return it before my 30 day trial period expires. A phones is useless if you can't hear it.

Sounds like they changed something when they built this phone for ATT. Why is it that phones for ATT always seem to have some quirk to them?
