I've heard of phone users using their volume up and down settings, but
I've never heard of setting _three_ volume sliders in some particular
config which does not produce clipping, does not inhibit noise
reduction, while keeping enough gain to be loud enough for the other

And furthermore, by evidence of numerous threads on this mailing list
and conflicting and incomplete information in the wiki, one particular
statefile will _not_ work for all users. And I'm not talking about very
subjective things either: clipping, noise, rustling, echo, etc. which
makes conversations extremely difficult while using statefiles which are
just about perfect for some users.

The fact that Freerunners differ in audio quality and settings has been
stated on this list and on support. And going by the last paragraph,
this is true.

So, _why_ are Freerunners different?
