    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:

    They do play back, and you do! Anyone figured out a workaround?

    My workaround was to create a ringtone with a ramping volume, which give me a few seconds to silence the phone.

I discovered that all the built in ringers on the Pre are in the /ringtones folder when looking at the Pre as a USB drive. They are all mp3 files. 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!
    Audacity does the same thing

    "My workaround was to create a ringtone with a ramping volume, which give me a few seconds to silence the phone."

    how did you do the 'ramping' volume?

    Thanks for the link to the undistorted ringtones, but I'd advise finding a different site to share them from. zshare.net tried to open several popup windows, and my antivirus software detected a worm and a trojan during the download process. If you've already downloaded the file from zshare and didn't get any warnings, do a full virus scan to be safe.

    Thanks for the louder ringtones. I just downloaded the MP3 Gain program, but I can't figure out how to save my own ringtones as MP3 files once they are made louder by the progarm that my phone will play like you did with the orginal pre ringtones. Can you help??

    Excellent post! Thanks "Arm_Pre" for cleaning up the files. Can you give us any hints on how to do this ourselves with our own ring tones? What are the steps you used to clean up the distortion created by increasing the gain? Thank you!

    If anyone has any steps on how to increase the volume of ring tones using Audacity that would be most helpful. Thanks.

    Got a problem. I downloaded and then moved over the ringtones that arm_pre fixed to the ringtone file. Now when I select one of the new ones it won't stay there and goes back to the original one with the lower volume. What is the problem here? Any help would be great.
