Ear speaker low sound when making calls

I have a customer that brought his iPhone 6 saying his ear speaker volume was very low and he could barely hear what the other person was saying even in a quiet room. I did some tests and when I use the recorder to record my voice and listen to it through the ear speaker the sound is crisp and clear, I hear very well.

When I try to make a phone call, the sound is very low, even with the volume at maximum. I tried switching SIM card and even replacing the ear speaker and flex cable.

What could be causing this problem ?

This may sound a little awkward and problaby a bit unhygienic but ive had serveral phones with low/rattling earpice sound.

This universal quickfix have worked everytime for me.

No need for tools at all and you dont risk to destroy you phone due to opening it.

Use the tip of your tongue and lick the net.

Then suck the net and after that clean the net with something small.

Repeat 3 Times.

The earspeaker sound will be as new.

Most times when I come across this it is a buildup of dirt and oils in the mesh covering the ear speaker on the front panel.

Start by

removing the earspeaker.

Once you have it exposed use a q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to moisten the buildup in the mesh.

Then use a can of compressed air and the sharp tip of the spudging tool to scrape and blow away any buildup. You can hold the panel up to the light to see your progress. It may take a few soakings and shots of compressed air to free all of the buildup.

If there was dirt in the mesh or speaker the sound would be muffled in every circumstance. Like I said, the sound is OK when listening at a recording. When I make phone calls this is where I get the problem.

Thanks Joseph - your tip worked for me. I took off the earpiece assembly and cleaned it until I could see through the mesh, Awesome!

A possible fix is to go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Hearing Aids and toggle Hearing Aid Mode to On.

poke the mesh with something small like the sim tray ejector.. poke its in the left Conner of the mesh... but use this temporary because you want to make sure you put new mesh and make sure you don't have a hole during raining days.

Is the mesh on the actual screen plugged with dirt or dust? That’s usually the most common issue I come across. Either replace the screen, or if you have old screens laying around replace the mesh that is inside. Obviously option 2 is cheaper.

I went to the Apple Store. They ran a diagnostic to confirm something was wrong. The tech took out a small brush and cleaned the tiny earpiece. Now it works fine.
