No problem with my TA-1043. Great sound quality.
pretty good. but, a bit down on the loudness front but, the sound is well balanced. not too much bass and bit towards the high end of the spectrum. sound is detailed well throughout the spectrum but, however, people who are looking for bass will not like it at all. The phone survived a scrape with the side of a lorry with only minor cosmetic damages yesterday.
When I first bought the phone in May, the sound from the headphone jack was fine. In the last month or two, it has become terrible, regardless of the app I'm listening to. I would describe it as tinny or a low-end static. The sound is fine using bluetooth speakers/earbuds. Have not tried if I can get sound through the USB C port.
I have the TA-1045 on the August patch. Would love to hear if there is a workaround or fix coming.
