ringtones that don't annoy, 2012 edition

I'm searching for a lowkey unobtrusive but interesting ringtone that won't draw looks of ire from those around me. I know this has been covered on ask.mefi before (in 2006), and, indeed, I ended up with one of those ringtones on a long ago now dead phone. But six years later, most of those links are dead, and we've moved from RAZRs to iPhones and Androids. So what's the latest and greatest in non-annoying ringy-dingys for our phones? [more inside]

Siri listens too fast, Siri is impatient, and Siri doesn't know who my best friend is.

Ok, got my new iPhone 4s. Siri is great and all, but I want to use it to dictate notes, and I find that it assumes I'm done speaking waay too quickly. Within a second, it's processing my request! But when I have something to record, I'd like to occasionally wait a few seconds between words. Is there any way to adjust how quickly it thinks I'm done speaking? [more inside]

My cellphones are all bass and no treble, and this lack of treble troubles me terribly.

The internal speaker quality on most cellphones I've tried seems abysmal, yet no one else I've talked to seems to notice/care -- even those whose cell phones I've tried and which are terrible in exactly the same way. So: (i) Have I just had a string of bad luck with cell phones? (ii) Does anyone else notice this? and (iii) Is there a cellphone review site that actually rates speaker quality on cellphones? Or, better yet: (iv) Are there cellphones that have an equalizer I could use to adjust the speaker to my heart's content? [more inside]

What is proper cell phone etiquette?

When I'm out with my friend and his cell phone rings which he doesn't want to answer, he sits there (with the phone within easy reach) and lets it ring until the caller gets voice mail (8 or 9 times, distracting and annoying to me), rather than mute the ring. Isn't proper "cell phone etiquette" when you're not going to answer your phone to at least mute the ring so not everybody around has to hear your phone ring a bunch of times?
