    unfortunately you cannot increase the auduio quality of a file like an mp3 once it is compressed. you may be able to tweak it a little bit. use dBPowerAMP and decode it to a WAV file, then try a free audio editor like Krystal or Audacity, where you can use an equalizer to boost or decrease certain frequencies to improve the speech quality. But the bottom line is once the audio file is encoded at a low bitrate, there's no real way of restoring it to high quality.

    edit 4 damn typo (too much vodka)
