 I'm curious, do you notice any difference between the buzz fixed one and
  the other? I read that only a few phones are affected by the buzz problem
  but nearly all (including the buzz fixed ones) have major problems with
  audio quality (noise, echo).

I own a rev. A5 freerunner and was seriously affected by the buzz problem. 
After applying the hardware fix the audio quality improved a lot. Before the 
fix there was no chance to use the FR as a phone.

However, the audio quality was never as good as on a friends rev A7 FR 
(without buzz-fix).  I did a lot of experimenting and tweaking with all 
possible audio parameters but the volume has always been either too low or 
distorted. He just uses the default audio configs and has nearly no problems 
with sound quality.

 
 So I wonder whether it's worth to get such a fix.
 

It is definetly worth it if you, or better said your call partner expierences 
a rather loud buzz. The fix will remove that buzz but won't fix other issues 
like rustling, echo or low volume. Those issues can mostly be addressed with 
software.

Hope that helps,
Michael

The same happened to me, but i didn't find a viable software cnfiguration to
use the fr as a phone. What about you? I'm really looking forward to replace
my nokia N70 with fr for calls...

I agree.

Me too i have especially the low volume problem (i'm with QtMoko). I
tried everything via mixer software, but without any success: phone
calls are always with tiny volume, in an open space or also in a car,
it's really difficult to ear the call. My phone it's a V6 release and
without any buzzfix.

Any suggestion?
