    Is the volume on the iPhone lower than the volume on the iPod Touch ?

    In regards to the speakers, the original iPhone's speakers are absurdly weak. I would say they are weaker than those of the iPod touch. The iPhone 3G has the loudest speaker of the 3.

    Are you sure that isn't an issue with how the music was recorded? Try the exact same song on both.

    Are you comparing the ear buds on the touch to the ear buds on the iPhone or the external speaker?

    My iphone 2g has the worst volume. I thought I got a defected one, but i had a problem and got it replaced. It is even worse. The speaker phone is pathetic, I can hear better playing through the headphones(a few feet away).


    With they upgraded the speaker. Some phones have way louder speakers. Make that all other phones.

    Yes I am comparing the ear buds on the touch to the ear buds on the iPhone. I have compared the same song which was purchased on iTunes and it was one that was one of the new unprotected done in 256 kbps, and my ipod touch is definitely alot louder. Same earbuds were used on both.

    That isnt saying much. I didnt think there was much difference in the 3G and first gen speaker. Maybe a slight difference but thats it.

    Are your settings the same on both devices? Like do you have "sound check" turned on one of them and not the other?

    I disagree. The sound on the external speaker of my 3G is leaps and bounds past that of my 1st gen.

    along this same idea, when i plug my headphones into my Macbook and play a song on itunes it gets much louder than if I were to play if off of my ipod. I was always under the impression that its not the device which allows the speakers to reach its peak but rather the headphones themselves. So if I understand this correct, switching devices allows for the same headphones to reach different maximums?

    Ever since I jabbed a pin in the speaker holes on my 2G it sounds on par with a 3G iPhone. :eek:
