Air puffed out my X speaker tonight with every word spoken by person on the line.

I happened to have the phone speaker and mic close to and pointed directly at my face.

checked several times during call to be sure wasn’t AC or my own breath bouncing off the phone.

Air actually being puffed out or air being displaced by the vibration of the speaker (by the sound)?

Yup, pretty impressive sound on the X. You can put your finger over it and feel the air.

Sound requires air to move. In the case of the stereo speakers, that's not uncommon depending on where you had the volume set as well. The stereo speakers will allow you to feel some air movement depending how close you are holding the phone.

So long as it’s not toxic gas I don’t see your issue anyway. Just means the speakers have got some power to them.

not an “issue”. just an observation and feedback much appreciated.

I noticed this years ago with phones. Nothing new with the X

really? interesting, I hadn’t experienced b4.

Did you smell what the person on the line ate for lunch too?

:p that’s funny!
