Interesting. If you go to Menu > Sound Settings > Earpiece Volume, what level is checked?

Interesting. My handset is actually loud on the earpiece, not so loud on the speaker phone, but once turned up is fine. Caller states I sound loud and clear. It might even be a bit better than my ooma hub.

Sounds like perhaps they need to change the level between steps then. The default setting is "2", which is comfortable for me, but people have different needs.

We are cranking up the volume of the max level in the next release.

Yep, I just checked mine and it is set to 2. Can't imagine wanting it any louder.

Well I have excellent hearing and even with it at max it still sounds muffled. I cranked up the speaker phone setting so tomorrow I will give that shot and see if it sounds any better for loudness. I compared this handset with my current Panasonic 6.0 DECT and hands down the Panasonic settings are only half way up and are plenty loud. I hope the volume settings and few other issues get corrected soon. I would really like this product to work for me, but overall am disappointed in its performance. I would loving nothing more than to dump Time & Warner and use this product.

If you have a good high-speed Internet connection, you can also experiment with a higher bandwidth codec which may sound sound better for you. Try dialing *98 before a call. If you like that, you can set it permanently inside My Ooma under System Preferences.
