Re: sony xperia z low call volume

hello I am glad that I have found this forum. I have the same problem with my xperia z which I received 2days ago as a swap from my 1st Xperia Z due to the same problem... when during a call and it is ringing another number , the sound on the earphone is distorted, I have also played about with the settings on call settings and sound settings, with these settings changed I thought I had solved the problem, but then a while later I decided to test the sound and I still had the same problem.... i was then thinking it must be a hardware failure I am guessing it is a hardware failure. I called up sony about the problem before, they said it could be Something to do with the sim. they said to change out a sim with another sim and try it out, but I still had the same problem... any ideas?? This is my second Xperia z with this problem.... And I waited from the 1st Xperia z
3 months for a swap phone.... I am very disappointed with Sony I'm normally a fond guy when it comes down to Sony tech... and even when I received 2nd phone, it had a dent on the bottom of it!!! Come on Sony lets see some customer goodwill....

Re: sony xperia z low call volume

The sound quality is very low on the Sony Xperia because of the waterproofing. They built a small internal speaker and layered it in a fine plastic to waterproof the speaker opening. Unfortunately adjusting any setting will not benefit the sound.

I did find this audio booster and it did help.

Re: sony xperia z low call volume

Hi,

 

I had sudden drop of callvolume too.

 

**SOLUTION**

I did something similar as Gizmoguru. I cleaned the earspeaker with soap and water and than with compressed air and it boosted the volume back to normal levels.

 

Blocked earspeakerfilter seems to be the problem.
