Are you using iPad Pro's internal speakers more now that it has four?

    i have found out that I am using my iPad Pro's internal speakers a bit more now (and I think they sound considerably better) with the 9.7 Pro when I am too lazy to pick up either headphones or my Bluetooth speaker.
    For example, I want to listen to just one song in one specific moment and I have my iPad with me and as they sound good I just listen to it through the iPad's speakers, while before I just got up and reached for a BT speaker or headphones.

    I have had my 12.9 iPad Pro for about one year and two months and the only time I plug the headphones into it was if I went into a room where someone is watching TV other than that music movies all sound amazing on the 4 speakers With previous iPads I would listen with headphones or Bluetooth speaker if synchronization was not needed but I have thoroughly enjoyed my iPad Pro 4 speaker system

    Yes the speakers on my 12.9 iPP are louder and clearer than I've ever needed. Can't say the same for my iPad mini 3. Hope the quad speakers make it to the iPad mini soon. Like in a month.

    I actually sold my Air 2 specifically because it sounded horrible on high volume. Lots of vibration, rattling, and distortion. So I'm very satisfied and happy with my Pro 9.7.

    To me, the quad speakers was one of the best hardware features Apple did well with the Pro line. Primarily being the iPad is a media device for movies and music. And to enhance that experience, quality sound immerses the viewer more into the experience.

    Yes. When watching TV/movies with my previous iPad Air, I would always plug in headphones for better sound. With the iPad Pro 12.9, I only plug them in when I want privacy or to avoid interfering with other things in the room. I definitely prefer to use the built-in speakers.

    It may be the only reason I am looking for a nice dock or stand for my newly arriving 9.7 to charge and dock in my bedroom to utilize for music in the morning.

    The new speakers sound fantastic.

    100% Actually I had a old Samsung tablet and a Creative Roar 2 Bluetooth speaker by the bed to watch Netflix. I sold that old tablet for $50 and returned the Bluetooth speaker that a total savings of $200 bucks

    Listening to Netflix now or on my Desk I don't need anything else.

    I've been listening to music a bit more on my Pro then I normally would on my iPad Mini 2. I have a BT speaker that I keep around for my iPhone but really, I don't need that much anymore.

    I just bought a Logitech smart connector stand/charger for my nightstand. It's beautiful and I love the ease of slapping it on there almost like wireless charging.

    I also use the speakers in the morning in my room when getting ready and enjoy what it has to offer for a clean, simplistic look on my nightstand.

    Haven't used another iPad in some years, but let's just say I am getting a lot of use out of these speakers. Very full sound. Routinely will put my 12.9 in a stand and have music play through the speakers while I do chores.

    It's become my chosen device for listening to new music as well.

    For sure! I'm not a man of silence, so often there is a fan on or some loud background noise. Previously headphones were needed to overcome these sounds, but now the max volume of the iPad overpowers the background noise. Good choice Apple.

    I have the 12.9 and love how the speakers sound. Plus it's just easier than bluetooth, docks, wires, headphones and all that nonsense. Simplicity is great.

    It's good to read above that the 9.7 is delivering the same.

    The 9.7" speakers are amazing. I still use my Soundlink because I have it, but when it's not the sound is great. A very much needed upgrade from previous generations.

    Well, I am enjoying watching movies/music videos and listening to music much more. My gf still uses an iPad Air 1 and she was amazed how awesome the Pro sounds when she watched some series episodes the other day. That and the brilliant screen make it an awesome device.

    It's good because I usually keep my iPads longer than my iPhones.
