    When I'm playing a song off the iPod app through the speakers, the sound seems kinda lower than my 3GS. Maybe it's because I have a bumper?

    Mine is much louder and deeper than my 3G.

    Maybe deeper, but it is not very distorted though so that's a plus

    Mine is much louder, although I did notice that if I put a finger over the speaker it pretty much kills 99% of the volume. This wasn't the case on the earlier models, so I assume it's from the denser manufacturing, and the stainless steel edging. I mention this because I think that might be the case with your bumper.

    Could you test it by taking it off? I'm interested in the Apple Bumper but would like to know if I'm going to sacrifice audio. Thanks.

    Mine seems lower than my 3GS. Kinda sucks. Speakerphone seems ok though. Yeah, it's really easy to cover the speaker while texting in landscape mode.
