The above title did not appear in the search section so I am starting this thread.


Do you use music much on this phone? Do you like it?

I notice it has xLoud, Clear Phase, Clear Bass, Clear Stereo, Surround Sound and Clear Audio. I understand that sometimes these things can be gimmicks / marketing junk but sometimes they can be useful. This is a good feature set for music lovers.

I notice that on GSM Arena tests that they rate the audio quality highly. I follow their guides often but not always. Audio quality is also subjective and occasionally I disagree with their conclusions. (e.g. X10 Mini). They rate the audio quality here if you wish to view it: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_l-review-934p7.php

Obviously the sound quality is fantastic. It is one of the best on a phone I have ever heard.

It doesn't beat my friends Stereo Beats Audio Speakers in HTC One but I'm satisfied with it them. I can agree with above that it is the best on a phone I have ever heared.

That is really impressive. Maybe the audio is underrated on this phone. And hello fellow Paddy!

Sound quality is quite good with both speaker an earphones thanks to settings included by Sony. The sound is incredibly loud with integrated speaker and does not show any sign of weakness. The sound is so loud that I don't need XLoud.

But the speaker is quite focused on high tones. That's the only "bad" thing.

I enabled xLOUD and I find my speaker too loud even on lowest setting when using Vine i. e.

But sound quality in Walkman and Poweramp I just superb. Even with my uber crappy earbuds :P

Wytapane z Xperii L.

I am not satisfied. My old w880i was far fuller than this. The earpiece is so lousy. The bonus headphone that came with the phone wasn't helpful either. A 10 year old megabass earpiece sounded so much better. Eventually, I just had to ditch it in favor of the much better xperia C.

I'm only talking about the audio quality. There are other reasons why I dumped the L (lousy cam as well). But I can say with certainty that the audio on the C is better. Perhaps it's in the headsets. I wouldn't have dumped the L if I weren't happy with it. Because it's a sony, the walkman app is a big draw for me, so if i'm not happy with it, i'm most likely going to either try another model, or buy another brand altogether. But i'm now VERY happy with the C, despite having less features and not having a loud xloud speaker.
