Default Speaker issue

I actually noticed this as soon as I got my sgr. I just wanna know if this is something that is only happening to me and if it is a hardware or software issue. And if there is a fix.

You know when you listen to a song with ear phones how part of the music comes out one earphone and the other part comes out the other?
Well this is what's happening with the speaker on the back of the phone. Only one speaker sound is being heard as if there should be 2 speakers back there and 1 is missing.

Can others please confirm this so I don't feel special.

Thanks.

I can't understand clearly what you mean to say...

If you mean to say that the stereo phonic effect is not there when hearing from the speaker then its completely normal as there's only one speaker in Galaxy R as with the Galaxy S2.

As it has one speaker the sound you hear is in Mono mode because of which you won't hear the stereo phonic effect.

If not then tell me what you meant to say.

Hope this helps.

You got me a lil bit. The speaker is in mono, yes, but that's not the problem. It's in mono as if the other speaker sound doesn't exist.

I might have made it worse for you, so I'll try and explain it in a somewhat easier way.

Consider a song with say singing and guitar.
With your earphones, lets say the singing comes out of the right earpiece and the guitar part comes out the left.
The problem with the SGR speaker is that ONLY ONE of these things is coming out. Lets say the speaker represents the left earpiece. Then you can only hear the guitar and you cannot hear vocals.

Please tell me you understood now

What ROM are you on? Are you using DSP manager or anything similar?
Also what music application are you using?

Out of the box ROM. (I'm not flashing anything until we get Cyanogen :P)
I'm not using DSP manager.
Out of the box music player.

I used the youtube app to play that song and it played properly through the speaker.
I have never witnessed this issue of a single channel through the inbuilt speaker ever on any device.
It seems like a software issue.
Try using PowerAMP and tweaking the settings.

Nevermind nevermind nevermind.
I used the YouTube app and it worked just fine. It must be the crappy music player.

Thanks

What you actually meant to say is that you could hear sound from only one channel i.e. either left or right from the speaker. :P

Anyways now that's you have found the culprit stop using it. You can try the MIUI music player to replace the stock.
