    Everytime I play a song and when it reaches its high-note or loud sound, the iPod touch 2g speaker squeaks. It's like its forcing itself.

    Is this normal or do I have a defective iPod?
    Are the iPod Touch Speakers 2G really like that/crappy?

    It's normal. The speakers are worse than the iPhone's.

    Check out bgizzle's speaker comparison. He compares the 2nd-gen iPod touch and iPhone speakers.

    I think mine kinda sounds more squeaky than that or is it the video? When it's at max volume, it's super squeaky.

    You should upload a video so that I know what it exactly sounds like.

    It was to be expected. The sound quality is very tinny and can get distorted

    Considering there's no speaker holes, not bad.

    The dock connector is where most of the sound is projected through.

    It's normal, the higher the volume is the worse it sounds, try putting it halfway or less.
