    I saw some people saying that ipod touch 4g has louder speaker, and some people, the other hand, say 4g isn't loud at all

    Has anyone compared 3G (not 2G) with 4G? Despite people think 2g and 3g have same speaker, I think 3g is way louder than 2g.

    Because when I compare my 3G ipod and 4G ipod, 4G ipod is way more clearer but, much more quiet too.

    Can someone who has both 4g and 3g test this ? I just wanna know whether mine is defected or not.

    So when both are uncovered, 3rd generation is louder right?

    Cause in my case, the loudness difference is pretty significant, 3g is way louder at max volume (but with a lot of noise)

    For me the 4.rth Gen is much louder compared to the 3.rd Gen, you can actually hear the iPod when you're waiting at a bus stop and there's alot of noise because of the cars.

    4G have a speaker at the bottom so it's a liitle bit louder then 3G

    That's weird, I just saw another ipod 4g, and 3g is still way louder than that.
    After some search, I think what's happening is that somehow all 3rd generation Ipod got quiet after upgrading from iOS3 to iOS4, and my 3g is still on iOS3.

    Is your 3g at iOS4? or iOS3?

    My 3G is on iOS3 and my 4g is much loader. Can play same movie on both and there is a big difference.
    Strange how other people are getting it the other way round - could it be down to individual machines?

    my 3G on 3.1.2 is HELLA loud...
    the 4G sux, prob. around 1/2 the output...
    and as for the sound quality... not much different, imo...

    Really? I compared my 4G with my 3G and the 4G was much louder and didn't get distorted at the highest volume.

    yea, i think something is wrong with my device...

    the 3G is STUPID loud; i don't think it was always like that... not sure what happened...

    and my 4G, it's just not loud enough... as in, i can put the speaker right next to my ear @ max volume without too much distress...

    EDIT: i have recently enabled "sound check", but i doubt that has much relevance since i'm pretty sure it was this low since day1...
