Yes, in the FreeRunner.  The 1973 has stereo speakers AND the handset
speaker, the FreeRunner has a Mono speaker AND the handset speaker. When
you play an audio file on the FreeRunner without a headset, the sound comes
out of the bottom of the FR, NOT out of the earpiece - that's the
loudspeaker, located near the bottom of the screen.
