If the only thing you think is crap about the sound is the lack of bass then 
it is a hardware issue that's been on the list since before the Freerunner 
was on sale. It would have saved some time if you said that that was the 
issue in the first place. It can be mitigated to some extent using the bass 
boost in the Wolfson audio chip which you can manipulate using alsamixer, or 
by directly editing the state files in /usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/ but 
there is plenty of info on the details of this already available. In the 
hardware list there's a thread discussing mods to the headset output stage.
