I've always read about them being bad, but I never thought they'd be THIS bad. the original 3DS' speakers were nothing great themselves, but they were serviceable. But the XL has some of the worst sound I've ever heard in a handheld.

It's because they're "surround sound" or something like that. Just use earbuds.

Ehh, not really. I take it you've never listened to a PSP before... or various older handhelds for that matter.

Pretty much, also TC why would you post a topic about the xl speakers? Knowing the regular 3ds speakers weren't all that good and knowing before hand that the XL speakers were terrible but yet you need to post a topic about it? That's redundant

You can turn off surround and set it to stereo which helps a little.

The 3dsxl's speakers are the suckiest of any console, far worse than a psp.

Fact.

No speakers and bluetooth would have been ok with me. I always use headphones and wireless headphones would have been nice (like I do on Vita).

Psp is Louder than 3ds xl, granted psp speakers were quiet as well.

I've probably played more handhelds than years you've been alive...

Because I can. There are plenty more "redundant" topics on this board than mine.

This is true but it doesn't do much.
