    Well dang it, I think it's just me. I just rotated the phone the other way and it sounded more even. That settles it, I'm crazy.

    In other news, I rooted today and downloaded Bean's ROM, but haven't installed it. I'm slipping.

    Idk. I feel like mine still sounded slightly louder on the right when I flipped it, but closer to even. Like I said, I almost wonder if part of it isn't just being so used to a device like this pushing the sound out one side.

    Good thing I shut my office door for this experiment though. I had my eyes shut & rotated it back & forth a bunch of times.

    I'm sure that didn't look weird at all.

    When was the last time you updated sync? They play and show on my 2012 and 2013 fords without issues. I don't have mytouch, just normal sync.

    No Sync here. Escape is a 2005. My stereo is aftermarket Sony XAV602BT.

    Track info shows in iDrive screen in my 2014 335i though.

    Just did another test. I'm playing Trials Frontier & I changed the angle of the phone, left to right & noticed more sound on the right side before starting a race. When I did it multiple times, back and forth, the sound kinda alternated between left & right ears hearing it better.

    So there is a slight difference in volume between the two speakers.
