Yeah, sound is said to be really good on N4, but really low too.
I hope Sony techies will amplify the sound. I'd really love to use good IEMs on this device.

My local three store had a xperia z today (was very surprised at this actually) had over and hours play with it love everything about it and the audio is very good, it is more than loud enough. I also played with the nexus 4 again and the Z is louder not that the nexus 4 is low in volume.

@dibdin There's already an interesting screen topic in Q&A. Let's keep it about the sound here.

@RWSAMHTC Thanks for your input ! Which kind of headphones did you try it with ? Do you know their impedance ?

I tried it with my urbeats in ear headsets. I tried 15 different types of songs from bashment, reggae, rnb etc. I mostly like bass and loudness and the xperia z did very well I am very please with it. Loudness in headphones was always my main issue, now I dont need to worry about that. I also tried the loudspeaker it was loud enough not the loudest of speakers but loud enough. couldnt try any phone calls though. Also test camera and video and video audio quality which on my one x and sgs3/gn2 wasnt the greatest atall. Very impressed with the z really. Atm the only think i think it needs is a blocking mode for calls and texts.

OK great to hear [no pun intended] that the sound is 'LOUD'..Other aspects like the bass and all can be tweaked..i was hoping that i wont have to carry an amplifier.

Default Odp: [Q] Xperia Z's Audio DAC ?

So the loudness of a speaker is comparable due to Xperia T?

Loud speaker seems louder than the T, the Ts loudspeaker was just poor imo.
