    Just because it's call boom sound doesn't mean you turn it up to it booms. Those speakers are not ment to be turned up full blast.

    Yes, they are. They build these so that they can handle max volume. The OP is angry, understandably. But, I've had mine cranked and have no issues whatsoever. Nor have I heard of this happening to anyone else. Rare for a small speaker like that to give out. They typically have crossovers to keep them safe. Wonder if something else contributed to it.

    Any small speaker isn't really designed for full blast use. Even eat buds can go out at full blast (and your ear drums)

    Agreed, but the max volume that the user can turn it up to isn't going to be close to the max volume the speakers are capable of. They do this so as not to blow the speakers.

    Op, HTC has a one year warranty against manufacture defects. I would venture to guess this issue falls under that warranty. Call or email and see what they can do, get pushy with them if they try to tell you it's your fault. Hopefully you can get it fixed or replaced

    That sucks. I use my mine at full volume out of necessity most of the time. I'm gonna have to be more careful.

    You'll be fine, op probably had a defective unit or something else happened. I listen to music at full volume for hours on end and have never had a problem. I did the same thing on my m7 and it's speakers still sound fine

    This definitely is a rare occasion. Things can happen... Have HTC replace it!

    My old htc had a blown top speaker too. No big deal, was covered under warranty.

    I mix concerts for a living. Any speaker can be blown. Different program material may be at different levels and or eq's, or if there's clipping or distortion already in the media it can clip the amp and send a square wave to the speakers, which may damage them. A little caution and common sense will go a long ways...

    My top speaker is also blown.... What sucks is I dropped it a few weeks later so now I wonder if I tried to have it covered if they would blame it on being dropped due to a few scuff marks now

    Had a M7 that blew top speaker; well, it buzzed. Got a M8 and blew top speaker within 3 days and I don't use the speakers for anything but tones. M8 was replaced under 14 day exchange.

    Common sense. Ex. If you have a booming stereo system and you constantly play it at full blast what do you think is gonna happen to the speakers?
