Anyone else like iPhone's default sound settings?

I was looking towards customizing my ringtones/sounds on my iPhone, only to realize that I actually like all of the standard sounds that Apple phones/tablets come with on iOS. This includes:

Ringtone (Marimba)
Texts (Tri-tone)
New voicemail (Tri-tone)
New incoming email (wong)
Sent email (Swoosh)
Calender alerts (beep beep)
Lock sounds
Keyboard clicks


How about you guys? Content with default sounds or do you use your own? Feel free to share which ringtones and text tones you use, etc.

I edit my own from songs in my iTunes. Finally customized my text tone as well. Didn't mind the stock ones for a while, but when around a bunch of friends with iPhones, and one goes off, everyone checks. Now at least for those two events, I know when mine is going off. Plus after 4 years of the same sounds, I grew tired of them and I thought the new additions sucked personally.

I added back in a few classic MacOS sounds and I'm pretty happy the originals and these additions.

Particularly the good ol' Wild Eep, Duck, and Droplet.

Not really, I use Marimba as my alarm because it's annoying and gets me up, but then stresses me out when I hear people's phone ring...good times.

I like a lot of the default stuff, especially on Mac's. On my iPhone 5 all of the default sounds are set except for my ringtone which is Heat of the Moment by Asia. On my MacBook Pro, I even leave the desktop background as the one that comes default with whatever version of OS X I'm using.

I agree. Thought I was just being lazy not trying to change them but stock is just fine. I noticed several other iPhone users feel the same when an iPhone rings in a public place.

^This 100%

I've changed my ringtone, and found a sonar ping sound I use for messages.

I turn keyboard clicks and lock sounds off and changed my ringtone (The Vergecast theme), text tone (XBox 360 Achievement sound), and alerts sound (XBox 360 Tray sound).

I don't know why, but I dislike hearing the marimba and tri-tones now.

First thing I did: My own ringtone, alarm.

There are too many other iPhones around me day-in, day-out, if I don't use a custom ring, I wouldn't know which phone is ringing around me!

Just for the love of God, do not use a rotary dial ring sound, it's so flicking irritating and if you don't happen to be 60+ and drive a Chevy '55 why do you have this annoying tone?

I have a whole set of 400+ rings and tones from rcptones and I love the professional ones

Really wish the Tri-tone could be changed per-App

I am very much comfortable with the default tones. seems good. Me being a bit lazy , may also be a factor.

there is nothing more entertaining than standing in a Starbucks, firing off the tri-tone ringtone and watching 10 people jump at their phones at the same time.

I'd hate to hear someone else's phone in public and think it was mine. The stock sounds are fine but I just can't use them.

I have a bunch of custom cuts here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1589713/ZIPs/ringtones.zip

Many of them are snippits of movie themes like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future, or Enchanted. I love my ringtones.

I like them all, but I personally change the Ringtone (Marimba) because EVERYONE has that ringtone, and I also change the Text Tone (Tri-tone) because many apps have the Tri-tone sound for their notification. I personally like Calypso.
