Speaker problems?

When on a call the other person sounds very metallic, but when playing music through the back speaker it sounds fine. Also when on a call the speaker phone sounds fine. Is my speaker detective or is the quality just bad for the ear speaker?

HTC phones always have crappy speakers in them. I doubt you have a bad one, it's just that HTC is cheap and won't put in better speakers.

I disagree. Quality isn't bad, volume is the issue.

I'm not having issues with my earpiece speaker but I am with the back speaker.. I can get a call and it is SUPER loud, so much so that the speaker actually distorts. I've tried turning it down but I have "pocket mode" on, so it boosts the volume, weird thing is, it's in a case, not my pocket. Could the case be screwing with the phone's ability to "sense" whether it's in a pocket or not? And why in the heck would the speaker even be distorting?! It does not do this when I play music thru it at max volume, by the way..
