    when playing sound of any kind (music, garageband,youtube etc) it sounds very distorted like a broken speaker. it also plays distorted through the headphones. and it is set on low but seems to be sounding quite loud.
    i am not sure but it may have started after i downloaded an app hangman rss pro which i like to play. i was playing the free version and decided to upgrade. anyway, i dont see how that could affect the sound throughout the ipad but just thought i would throw it out there.

    are there any settings i might try to fix this? its almost like its on "overdrive" or something

    Since the sound is distorted on your speakers AND when you plug in headphones, this leads me to think that no internal parts are damaged. I have never heard of any application being able to produce more sound than the operating system allows. I cannot offer a solution but hopefully someone else can.
