I jinxed myself. I wondered if my refurb would be up to snuff, everyone said theirs had no problems, and now that I got mine:

When connected to headphones, the audio seems quieter, and it distorts really easily.

Has anyone noticed discrepancies? I would hate to have to go through the hastle again of dealing with sprint.. 2 or 3 trips +/- an annoying call is not what I need to keep the blood pressure down...

I'm also afraid that I'll have a hard time explaining to the hard-asses at the store that the audio is "of lesser quality"

It also seems that the soundrec audio that I record is more distorted, and the speakerphone is (slightly) more distorted.

On lower level recordings, the sound sounds "less robust" when listening on headphones...

Anybody with similiar experiences?
