    just a curious question here

    but could anyone who was qualified enough open the 2nd gen touch and somehow swap the standard speaker with a more high quality one? perhaps take the speaker from the iphone? any insight if this could ever be attempted? or could the ipod touch's amplifier that powers this sh*t speaker power anything of better quality so you could somehow get a stronger and cleaner/clearer sound?

    something to think about

    OMG, i think you're the only one who ever think about that.

    i don't think it's possible.

    if you're talking about hardwares.

    it's very sensitive.

    has anyone out there been able to open these things up with out damaging them?

    they look completely unserviceable to me. no screws. i'm assuming that it's glued together?

    Did you think about where the sound goes out actualy (casewise) ? You won't get high quality sound of that little thing ....

    huh

    I use my $79 Sony ear buds on and the audio is not lacking. I don't understand the need or desire for the iPhone speaker.
    Maybe the Touch will mount up one of the expensive external speakers, like Bose.

    You'd probably get better sound if you were to drill a number of tiny holes where the speaker is. Of course you'd need to disassemble it first and if you ever needed it to get fixed by Apple you'd be out of luck.

    This is by far the most dumbest idea ive ever heard of
    WHY WOULD U SWAP FOR IPHONE SPEAKER?
    why oh why would you?!?!?!?!
    the iphone speaker is horrible, it overpowers itself with bass and becomes VERY unclear. trust me ive had both.
    the ipod touch speaker has zero bass and therefore can go louder than the iphone speaker by not overpowering itself like the iphone one does. Its much clearer aswell. Only dumb thing on apple's part is surrounding the speaker by the metal back and a bunch of other crap inside the ipod, instead of making it close to an edge with tiny holes or somethin, it would be MAD louder that way. If anyone has heard the loudness that comes out of the blackberry curve, it would be a tiny bit quieter than that, but still thats LOUD. apple made a screw up and im guessing if there is ever a 3rd gen ipod touch then the speaker will be as i say, and hopefully they will include a camera aswell- this would be godly.
