Acer Liquid Metal - problem with mic? [Acer Liquid Metal Gingerbread Android 2.3 - 205663]

Since I started using my Lq Mt, most people I have called complain that I sound very low on the phone, like I am not holding the phone close enough to my mouth.

 I'm contemplating returning the phone for examination, but before doing so, is there a setting on the phone which could cause this? Some forums report Lq Mt users complaining that the "Noise Cancellation" function on the phone can cause problems similar to these.  There appears to be no physical obstructions in or around the mic at the bottom of the phone that could contribute to this. 

 Can anyone else offer me advice before I send this phone off to be checked?
