  • This is happening with my unit also Prasanth I suggest them to work on this and fix it as it can be fixed by updating audio drivers and control the bottom firing speaker to prevent the distortion. I believe they should they should fix this as flagship phones are expected to have a good sound experience not this utterly bad distortion.
  • It can get a bit better if you make some corrections in EQ. Works as temporary solution. If we're talking about sound, please change volume steps in headphone/bluetooth mode. 50% is way too high on the volume slider.

    I admit that the earpiece speaker needs improvement but this test of yours with the bottom speaker is very weird. You are not supposed to put your ear next to it. It is not designed to sound good this way and I dare to say that any phone will sound bad when you listen to it like this. Our bottom speaker is actually quite good and there are several reviews that can back this claim.

    Agreed. Credit where credit is due, the speakers are great

    I don't think that he's talking about quality but relatively high noise levels in volume level lower than 30%. Sometimes it sounds like it's raining. If it's hard to fix then alright, I can live with it.

    I can confirm with what is being said in this thread. There is massive distortion when the speaker volume is low. No matter if its youtube, amazon prime music or any game. As soon as i reduce the volume, the bottom speakers distorts like there is no end.
    I also don't agree that its not meant to be heard this way. The user decides how to use it. The user decides the volume on which he intends to hear it. I was using low volume while playing Clash royale today with low volume to not disturb the people around me and thats when i noticed the problem...In that particular situation i was sitting in my car show room waiting room, high volume was out of the question and low volume sounded distorted and shit.

    If you don't see this as a practical usage scenario problem, theni committed a big mistake switching to asus. The frequent sound from the camera module was enough to bug me off but this is entirely on another level.

    Thanks atleast some people understand what i was talking about.....also not only us many users pointed it out so probably there would be a fix
  • I too am facing the speaker distortion in minimum volume levels. The distortion goes away when the volume is approximately above 50%
  • Hi,
    We are going to fix this issue in next FOTA.

    When is the next fota coming?? Asus has been really slow in pushing updates.

    But atleast they are acknowledging the issues on the forum. That is nice.
  • It's coming soon and we have released about 2 updates every month since its release so I wouldn't say we are slow.

    2 every month?  Then i take back my words..sorry.. i was being guided by the pace of updates on asus 5z.
