My x20 distorts sound and med frequencies are almost gone.
I noticed one morning that my x20 suddenly distorts sound BUT only through the earphones... the built-in speakers give proper sound, and i don't know what's wrong with it. I'm saying it was sudden because i used it the night before, shut it off normally, went to sleep, woke up and it was acting like i said. I'd take it to the service since i have 1 year warranty but i already could not restrain myself from opening it up myself. however there were no "warranty void" labels or anything in sight so legally i should be given benefit of doubt :p Still i'm afraid they'll say it's a physical problem although i did not touch any pieces inside, just merely looked for suspicious dangling wires or such.

Almost all mp3 players are sensitive to headphones turning in the jack - this is an inherent limitation and cannot be fixed. If it playing out of one ear only, however, that is a problem and can be fixed by replacing the player.

You will not get more distortion, in fact possibly a little less because the newer speakers have a higher power rating and can thus handle more power without cone breakup. However - you indicate the the higher powered speakers have an inferior frequency response with the high end reduced from 20kHz to 16kHz - which is very surprising. This will mean that while not being any more distorted, the system will sound just a little less crisp and sharp at the high frequency end of the spectrum. Mind you, most adults over 25 - 30 years or so have impaired hearing above about 15 kHz, so chances are the difference in sound will be completely inaudible to many listeners :o)
I assume that your sound is turned on and the volume is turned up. Try earphones. If they work the speaker is possibly damaged or the jack plug connections are bad. If they don't, the amp section is possibly damaged.
could simply just be the earphones... sometimes it just means ur heaphones are stuffed.
if its not the headphones either the player is stuffed or the audio format is something the X20 can't read
if its the player i'll be frank, you have no hope, there are no specialised stores that can fix it besides iriver international (they'll only take it if its still in warranty). you cant fix it yourself unless you have thorough knowledge of the circuit.
If its the sound format try changing it to mp3 or wma...
hope this helps!
to all three it may be that your earphones aren't working! try it on another audio product you know... if it doesn't work get new earphones!
if not it may be the audio format... try changing it to a format the X20 can read! (mp3 and wma should work)
if its neither you're out of luck. the socket is probably the problem. if its in warranty you might get lucky and they send it to be repaired. if not really bad luck there are few specialised stores with the knowledge to repair an iriver...
u have a problem either on the speaker or on the sound amplifying circuit. signal coming from the earphone jack is not amplified. check the speaker first. if its ok then check the audio output ic(integrated circuit). good luck!
