    Can you guys do me a favor and turn your system sound all the way up (notifications, typing, alarm, etc.) and then send a text message and listen to see if the stock "text sent" and "text received" tone is distorted or crackles badly at the end, in a text/imessage thread. thanks guys! mine sounds like a blown speaker. everywhere else it sounds fine.

    I think mine was okay on the first few days(got it on the 25th) and then today I notice there's a little craking sound whenever you receive a text or notifications with vibration, I'm not sure if its cause I updated to IOS9.02 thats causing it. Is my case the same as what you're experiencing?

    Yeahs it happens when I receive or send a text. I wonder if a restore would do anything.

    Or maybe we can just wait till they release the next version of IOS and then see if it still there, yea it made me really anxious too cause it all worked well since I got it and then I updated it thats when It started to making those funny sound

    Yes, I've had this issue since day 1. It's clearly a hardware problem. Like you, there's a crackle sound at the end of the text sent and received sound effect.

    I have a 6s 64 gb.

    It doesn't bother me too much.

    Glad to see I'm not alone. I believe I had it on one of my 6's

    my speaker/sound issue is when two tones happen at the same time, it's a very ugly cracking sound.

    Try putting someone on speaker on any VOIP app. I am having the same problem on my 6s plus. I have an appointment with Apple on Friday. Let's see what do they say about it.

    Mine is rose gold 64gb I doubt that they will have a replacement for that. Moreover I put a $40 screen protector on my phone as well :/

    Skype have patched their app and the distortion issue has been resolved, that would suggest it's a software issue, over hardware. Just seen Hangouts and FB Messenger to do the same.

    Yes it looks like a software issue. If you play Opening ringtone on the phone you have to focus on the high notes and you can hear the same blown speaker sound.

    I'm starting to lean toward software too. I bought another 6s and it does the same. The weird thing is they don't do it on initial boot if you do a power off and then power on.

    Same problem here: I went to the Apple store and exchanged it, and the replacement has the same issue. My wife has the same phone (128gb) in a different color and the problem does not exist with hers. Her max volume is a lot lower than mine. At this point, I'm just making sure not to max out my volume, and hope that Apple releases a software fix. The tones sound normal if you set the volume around 50%.

    Yep, there is a volume issue, with full volume there is a slight distortion on the send/receive message sound. one step lower and the distortion is gone.
    No issue with music or ringtone.

    if you put Opening ringtone you can feel the high notes blown.

    I think I noticed this a couple of times as well, but there doesn't seem to be a direct correlation between volume and distortion. In other words, I've noticed some things with a higher volume that don't distort, while the couple of times I heard it, it wasn't abnormally loud at all. I can't remember which app(s) I was in when I heard it, but it admittedly sounded like a blown speaker. However, the speaker is working fine otherwise, so yeah, it seems to be software related.

    yesterday, when I was calling around to see what iPhones were left at Apple stores around SoCal, they were mostly all the rose gold colours.

    even online, they're backed up to at least two weeks out.

    plus, you've got that screen protector. kind of the reason I'm a bit too timid to let mine go with the tempered glass and body skin I have on it.
