Blackberry Curve 8330 ? fixes for poor audio quality?


I have a BlackBerry Curve 8330.

When I use it to play music (mp3s with a good high bit rate) the sound quality is excellent using the ?official? headphones that came with the phone (3.5mm plug) and when I play music using the phone?s speakerphone.

But I run into problems when connecting the phone to 1) External computer speakers (good ones) and my car?s auxiliary input (2007 Camry) to play music off my Curve on the car speakers/system. In both these instances I am connecting the BlackBerry with a male-male 3.5mm connector wire (I understand that the Curve has a 3.5 mm headset/audio output, unlike most phones which are 2.5 mm outputs?).

I have tried several 3.5 mm male-male connector wires but get the following problems when playing music on both the external computer speakers and my Camry:

-- Low volume and muffled sound
-- A loud one-second burst of static/click when the music player goes to next song

Can you help me figure this out?
