Let's continue the discussion in this thread since it's the newest one mentioning speaker quality.
I just compared two devices, one that's on 2106.86 firmware and one that was on the firmware we launched on, several iterations before 2104.57 firmware. They sounded identical to me.
I also checked with the sound team and they confirmed that the speaker changes introduced with 2104.57 was reverted with 2106.86 and that .86 should be identical to the .56 version.
I'm not saying that you don't hear a difference, but have you put two devices side by side and compared? As I said, sound quality was identical for me.
Unfortunately I don't have 2 Rog 5's. I can only compare with Rog 3 & by other users feedback. The bass definitely isn't as good as it was. The bass originally was as good as the Rog 3 or better. Regarding loudness, I'm certain that a significant amount of users reported that the sound has been slightly decreased in terms of maximum volume output
You mentioned that the change with .57 updated was reverted with .86 update, can you definitely confirm if the revert is exactly the same as .47 & older firmwares ?
Both bass levels and overall loudness sounded identical to me.
Yes, the changes introduced with .57 are simply not there in .86 so that version should be the same as .56 and before.
I will have to find someone else with the Rog 5 with lower software to confirm.
Thank you, that was helpful.
the stereo effect was also not changed? I specially listen to the same song on 56/86 and remember all the nuances. Yes, the bass is the same, but there is no feeling of a deep enveloping sound at 86. The middle and high frequencies sound a little louder at 86
@pesterevyasha To the best of my knowledge no, it was not changed.
