When I first got my XZP, the notification sounds did have a bit static to it, like it was too loud or something. I remember reading before that the speaker has to be calibrated before use (play music for 30 minutes straight) and the speakers should calibrate. If you notice in the service test menu, there's a new test called "Speaker Calibration". Upon checking it after the 30 minutes thing, it said "Calibrated". Notification sounds played as normal from the on. Maybe you just had to calibrate the speakers or something?

So does the right speaker still sound like utter trash? Mine sure does. I believe all xperias have this design flaw. Sony please fix it ASAP!

Mine are both nearly equal.

Youtube however is far louder than netflix.

LOL got my phone delivered back to me today without even knowing they had sent it back. What a nice surprise. They fixed the top speaker and now they both sound almost indistinguishable.
They replaced the top one and no more crackling sound. Everything sounds way better than when I even got the phone

I can't find "Speaker Calibration" in the service test menu. Also I can't put a screenshot here with my phone to show you(don't know why)

After reading this thread, I tested both Speakers. They have exactly the same level. Just telling this to point the fact that it's not a common issue.

Also consider that some songs have an imbalanced Stereo spreading. Test your songs on other devices to be sure that's it's a speaker problem. And if the problem still persists, it may be a faulty device.

Bottom speaker
My bottom speaker start to crackling today. Seems like a hardware issue. No falls, no water. Good dammit, Sony. I'll stop to love you

You people obviously dont understand what stereo means.
First of all there is a mono option where both speakers act as one. You can use that if you want identical loudness and clearity but that will eliminate the stereo effect.
Because stereo works this way:
One of the speakers focuses on highs (the "ssss" sounds like the hats and high pitch tones) and the other speaker focuses more on lows and middles (which is more of people's voice, bass, etc). Thats why to get full stereo effect these aspects should exist. Thats why one speaker sounds old and crispy and voice is just way too high and the other seems to be clearer on human voices and some melodies.
But that must exist so you can notice the stereo effect.
Glad i can help

I don't think that's how Stereo works, tho (I'm actually sure that's not how it works).
On my headphones (and on any other device ever used), the left and right channel have the same sound and clarity, just play different audio sources to get the stereo effect.
That's how it should be on the phone as well, but that's not the fact.
I'm pretty sure that's because different speaker assemblies are used for top/bottom, and thus can be considered bad design.
