    My replacement phone has been great, apart from the small dent in the metal I couldn't be happier. I can only presume mine was a refurb. Still going strong though.

    I've been having this problem very recently. Had my first HTC One since late October. Two days before New Years my top speaker "blew" for no apparent reason. Just a loud crackle sounds coming out of the phone speaker during calls or playing any type of sounds (Music, gps directions, etc.) Turning off Beats made the sounds worse (so likely hardware?). I sent my phone to Verizon for an exchange for a referb. Got the replacement phone this Monday, and this evening (2 days later) I'm presented with the exact same problem!

    I'm rather clueless what would be causing this. I work in a rather dust-less environment and speakers are mostly used for GPS / speakerphone on occasion. I've never had to replace a phone due to a defect for the past 10 years. Having 2 defects in under a month is quite frustrating and doesn't give me much confidence in HTC if this has been a known problem.

    I really want to love this phone, but the past posts on this thread is giving me more reason to jump ship to the Galaxy S4 while I still can. Would that be over-reacting and should I give HTC referb another chance? (3 times the charm?)

    I work at a VZW store and only had 1 customer ever have this issue since launch. He also listened to hair band rock n roll on full blast including ringtones and notifications. I love my HTC One.

    Thought I'd give an update about my phone. In my last post, I said that customer service told me to wait for a software update that they said was suppose to fix a speaker issue. I didn't believe that this would work for my problem, since it's seemed clear that I had a blown speaker, and decided to just send it in to HTC for repair. I got the phone back a couple weeks ago and so far it's working good. Hopefully I won't have to send it back anymore. This was my second time for repair. The first time they fixed the micro usb, because it wasn't charging right, and it would over heat. It's a really great phone when everything is working good on it. I've debated on selling it before something else goes wrong, but not sure yet. Right now I'm loving it again so I'm kind of torn.

    I was desperately looking for other people experiencing the same "blown speakers" issue on their One (M7) and now I've found this one so I took the time to register....

    I have this problem for a long while now on my One (M7) and it started after using it for several months....
    Resetting the device, updates, beats audio on/off, nothing helped....

    The reason why I'm concerned now: I can extend my contract within 2 days with Vodafone (living in the Netherlands) so I can choose a new phone, I do like the new HTC One (M8) and besides the speaker problem, I do like the rest of my old HTC One so I would like to get the M8, but now I'm scared as hell ...
    I don't want to have the same problems again with this newer model because I want it to be 100% functional till my contract ends again....
    Are the speakers physically different on the M8 (besides the new amplifier) ?

    So my heart tells me to get the new M8, experience tells me to get the iphone 5s (I've owned a 4s and it had never let me down) and my brains tell me to get the Sony Z2...
    I'm lost

    A luxury problem, I know...

    A short clip of my third HTC One, all have developed this same problem and this one has been repaired by HTC themselves, only to fail again within 4 months.
    This phone has been well looked after and never dropped (just like the other three) I asked HTC for a refund as I believed I had given them a fair chance but they flatly refused, saying they would 'expect' to repair this kind of fault three or four times!!

    Unhappy Re: HTC One - What's happening about the "speaker blown" problem?

    My bottom row of speakers blew out the other day. I woke up today, and my camera doesn't work now either.

    I've got an m8 and the bottom speaker is blown. It definately sounds like a physical problem and not software. Sometimes in a semi-noisey environment I would miss calls because I couldn't hear the ringer.

    Fairly similar scenario that I have had on O2 in the UK. Always look after my phones - this is the first phone that I have had that has been faulty.

    1st handset started to develop crackly top speaker after 5 months and eventually both speakers completely failed after 7 months. I didnt want to send the phone off straight away for repair as I thought the bottom will follow which it did. I was sent a new/refurb handset within 3 days which looked brand new, not a blemish in sight, which is great service. But again 5 months later the top speaker started to crackle and now has completely gone, lower speaker has started to crackle now so exactly the same issue. Provider O2 will not let me change to equivalent phone from another brand.

    I listened to a bit of music with the 1st handset but never at full volume. I didn't even listed to music on the 2nd handset as never got round to loading all music back on and didn't want the same thing to happen but it did anyway. Its so much hassle to reload all music, images, apps etc some of which do not load all data automatically.

    This is my 3rd HTC and never had a single problem with them until the One M7. I'm afraid to say it but I wont be getting another HTC when I re-new my contract. I wonder how many One m7's I will get through after 24 months, im on target for 4 at the moment...... I'm off elsewhere which is a shame as nothing else floats my boat.
