So I've been playing Resident Evil, Ridge Racer and Pilotwings for a little bit today and I've noticedthat the right hand speaker has gotten... well, quieter whereas the left hand speaker seems to be a lot louder, I've mucked around with the sound settings skipping between Surround, Stereo and Mono and yet the right speaker is still quiet.

You can hear it ofcourse, but compared to the left hand speaker it feels really quiet... anyone else getting speaker problems?

No...not me....yet. I must say that the 3DS is a very fragile little machine, comparing to DS. :)

"very fragile" doesn't even cover it... but these little problems are becoming way too common. Next thing will be the cameras probably.

I've heard of this same problem before, try using headphones and if it works fine than your speakers are messed up.

You know what the real problem is, the weak low volume when using Headphones....It's even quiter than the DS Lite's.
I can't believe NIntendo let this crap slide....It makes the experience feel less grand, immersive and doesn't exactly packa punch.

@Retro_Gamer Headphones work perfectly fine. But if its my speakers... good god, there's something seriously wrong with the 3DS if it's getting all these problems so early on. Already have a faulty Home button, crap battery and now the right speaker is kinda bust.

Nintendo's quality has obviously slided over these past few years.

I think there's something wrong with my 3DS's headphone input jack....Whenever I have my home theatre headphones plugged in, and if i accidently or just flat out wiggle the end headphone jack that's already plugged into the 3DS, the sound will skip, or clip off and on. I just tested my headphones out with my DS Lite and none of that happened at all....Maybe it's because the 3DS's headphone jack isn't as sturdy?

Or maybe I messed it up some how.....With my headphones, I also have to use an adapter dongle jack at the end since the main jack is ment for a receiver/amp, but it's strange....does this happen to you guys? It's annoying because the end of the jack usually rubs against my shirt while playing and it clips, yet in the beginning i'm pretty sure i never noticed this at all....because maybe the problem wasn't there to begin with. :p Eek! I hope i didn't screw it up! If so, that's some shotty input design right there.

And Nintendo please do a firmware update if it's even possible to increause the volime, it's too damn low when using headphones.

I might send mine in and get a new one, only problem is... since I won mine, I didn't get a receipt so I have no proof of purchase. :/

@WaveBoy What format are you using? Because my sound quality is amazing, even with headphones. Can't even hear traffic when walking past it...

I also get a problem if I wiggle the jack, it might stop playing thinking I took out the headphones forcing me to open the 3DS, replug 'em in and continue.

Hopefully they make a sturdier version at some point.

To be honest it could be a problem when the 3ds was being manufactured. Because mine is perfectly fine and I know others whose 3ds's are also fine. I am not saying the 3ds is amazing hardware but it might be a different reason to why some of your guys 3ds's are messing up.

@Demon: Nintendo should provide support whether you bought yours or won it — plenty of people get consoles and games as gifts. If you think the problems you're having bear repairing, give it a shot :3
