A number of owners have complained of audio playback issues, with bad quality and overdrive issues for the speakers, as well demonstrated in the video above.

It appears the problem starts when the volume is increased above 15, and affects not only music playback but even ring tones and call quality.

All 3 owners involved had hardware version 5001, but it is not known if the issue is confined to those handsets only. To find out which version of hardware you have it is necessary to install Nokia Care Suite, the instructions for which can be found at here.
