Hi Joerg,

I certainly don't mean to downplay the research you did - I was just trying
to explain the experiences I've had.   When I set control.5 to about 85 I no
longer heard a buzz when I called myself on a phone - A few people
complained that I sounded a bit muffled, so I reset it to the 101 (same as
gsmhandset-a7.state), and since then it seems pretty good - my wife has
complained once about some intermittent minor buzz, but I've had a number of
phone conversations where people said I sounded fine.

I've still seen varying opinions on these mailing lists ranging from 'only
5% of people need the buzz fix' to 'everyone with an A5 or A6 needs the buzz

Is the official line that everyone with an A5 or A6 would benefit from the
buzz fix?
