Can somebody fix low headphone volume please ?

Oh thank God, I thought I was the only one having this problem, I'm using the Samsung stock headphones, and have the same issues of rising volume when calling someone. Could someone look into that?

What this basically means is that it may well be the case that you are going to get a mixed response to your question. Some people (like me) will have no problem, because the resistance is low and hence if I turn the volume on my phone up to max it hurts my ears. Some people on the other hand may think the phone is quiet as their headphones have a higher resistance/are harder to drive, so they will think the phone is quiet.
In general I have found that something like an ipod for example, which is a dedicated music player, will be much better at driving headphones whereas phones tend to lack in drive a bit. The only solution to your problem is that a dev can somehow increase the output power of the device, or use a portable headphone amplifier (which will improve the sound by providing more power anyway). Although most people think the latter is a bit crazy, which I can understand.
Hope that helped a bit.

Fair enough. Maybe there are other players from the market that might give it a boost. I know lots of people swear by poweramp (although I have never used it). Maybe give that a go??

What you can DO is choose your headphones/earphones better. The lower the ohm value on headphones, less resistance it has and therefore more volume. Choosing solid (dont invest too much) headphones/earphones with 16ohm resistance yields more loudness then some epic hi-end headphone with with 64ohm resistance. Lower ohm on headphone/earphone means more volume IF the speakers in the said headset can handle the volume without distorting the sound. Don't go lower then 16ohm thou, you could fry the input jack.
for instance I cant turn the volume way up on g300 with them, too loud. 16ohm.
on my other Zen pair http://onearheadphon...nheiser-hd-435/
Maxing out the volume isn't enough on g300. 32ohm. It's like twice less volume then on 16ohm ones. But I use them for home applications so it's not an issue. I am just giving an example.

Haven't you read the thread? It's a hardware limitation of the phone, how much power the internal amp can output and here's nothing a dev can do to bend the rules of physics, The solution is threefold: low impedance earphones, use eq or volume boost app, buy a miniature headphone amplifier.

Haven't you read the thread ? When you call someone while listening to music volume increases 100% for about a sec and it stays clear and crisp, so its not a hardware issue.

I'm also not convinced this is a hardware issue as when using the headset, calls appear to be a lot louder than when using a music app (Poweramp in my case).
