For your collective interest, the speakers can reproduce DTMF tones
reliably provided the levels are set down from maximum.

At lunch today on a B2 with build-debian, the dtmfdial package was used
to transmit tones over a ham radio for making an IRLP request.  The DTMF
tones include 697 Hz for the top row.

In listening to podcasts, certainly headphones sound better.
