My opinion about the icon:
It is nice and I like the orange, but:

I have used and packaged a few times this icon, and I believe it is a 
bit too complex. When displayed is small format, it is hardly 
recognizable. There are too much small lines, and too much details.
  I believe the graphics should be much more simple, though 
distinctive. Some kind of simple symbol or simple shape.

When using the first icon, the first thing I did was a lot of Ctrl-L 
in inkscape, and removing 70% of the nodes in the central waveform.
