    I just bought my surface Rt yesterday and I am playing music on it right now but I think the right speaker is blown or something its super distorted and scratchy its really annoying like beyond useable anyone else having this problem or should I exchange it? This is even at really low volumes.

    My main quibble with the speakers is that they could do with being a bit louder.

    Hmmm I restarted and I'm still having problems I'm thinking maybe I should exchange it... That speaker on the right is just awful. On a side note I had to reply from my ipad because on my surface on this site when I hit reply the on screen keyboard pops up and goes right away not sure what the deal with that is.

    Have tweaked the sound settings in control panel yet?

    Boost Speaker Volume
    Surface's volume is quite low. Go to Control Panel, then Sound, then click on Speakers, then Properties, then Enhancements and check Loudness Equalisation and Virtual Surround too if you wish. Apply changes.

    I had a quite right speaker. I returned it for an exchange and the new one is equally loud on both sides.
