    This is great. Good idea to increase the db, I wouldn't have thought of that!

    First off, thanks to cencom14, we do need louder ring tones.
    Unfortunately, turning the gain up on these files creates digital clipping/distortion.

    I've maximized these files with the proper tools, so they are now just as loud as cencom14's, but without the ugly digital distortion.

    Yea, this might sound like I'm a little OCD, but Audio Engineering is my business, and I thought I'd try to respect the ring tone composer, Roger Bourland's work.

    Here is the link to the files:

    Thank you! Any word on whether we're going to get our ears blown out when using a headset? Do the ringtones ever play over the headset?

    Attach to the computer in USB drive mode and put the ringtones in the directory /ringtones, found on the phone. Be sure to safely remove or eject the USB drive before detaching the phone from the computer.

    Thanks... However, I noticed that the original ringtones had a bitrate of 320 kbps.

    Yeah, I'm picky too, unfortunately the few utilities that I have want to clip everything.

    And we need the ability to select our own sounds for SMS, email, voicemail, unknown caller ring, etc. The fact that you can't customize system sounds is silly

    I just downloaded the PreCentral Louder set... I don't have a Pre yet, but I have to say, WOW! That's the oddest (I'm being very nice by using that word) set of ringtones I've ever heard! I think I lost about 20% of my testosterone by the 5th tone!

    The Guitar is about the only one I could handle, but as mentioned above, it's been pushed too far and is now distorted.

    I got the louder tones from main page and it works great..

    Thanks, I'm trying it but I was concerned about the 'clipping'.

    I even tried to say in options: don't clip but it looked like it did anyway.

I used a program called MP3 Gain to analyze the db volume level of each file. The files all pretty much had very low db volume levels around 92db. This explains the low ringtone volumes! I used the program to boost the volume levels of each file to 100db. Viola! All the files are now markedly louder and there is no distortion. The MP3 Gain program can be found here: mp3gain.sourceforge.net/download.php . I hope this helps people hear their Pre better!
    Thanks a lot! What I wanna know is where were all you people who are thanking this dude when I had my Ringer Volume Sucks thread going?

    Completely wrong thread sorry it's late.

    I copied my own MP3's into the folder and they were more than loud enough, but this is a great help and thanks to JT for the detailed instructions so we can get right through this.
