Comment(by greenfeld):

 The new kernel (f80b9e7) still distorts audio badly towards the high end,
 although not as badly.

 A XO-1.75 with os30 does not distort anywhere nearly as much when playing
 the "Victory" music sample in Browse at full volume.

 Complicating the issue is that we have two types of speakers to support:
 Those in touch units and those in older/non-touch units.

 Alternatively this could just be a speaker mounting issue, but I would
 have no idea how such an issue would sound compared to generic overdriven
