    Just got a 3DS XL for Christmas. headphones seems fine but the volume from the systems speakers seems pathetic. I am wondering if my console is defective or if the sound level is just really poor.

    My DSi XL is probably 2 or 3 times as loud on max volume.

    Yeah unfortunately the speaker AND headphone output of both 3DS models are poor. I've heard that some people have 3DS systems with perfectly fine volume output. I have a headphone booster device. What's strange is on the main menu, some games have clearly louder volume than usually allowed.

    ok thanks. I tried a few different software and some of it is a bit louder. Super mario 3d land especially is very low volume it seems. but it's definitely much quieter than the dsixl

    Yeah lowspeaker volume is UNIVERSAL on all 3dsxl models. It is NOT A DEFECT so don't return it. It's the price you pay for a larger top screen. Plus the fact that they are rectangular instead of circular like most speakers allude to the poorness in performance.

    Don't trust me? Think i'm talking bull? Here's the skinny:
