since the volume levels are all at maximum ... try moving it around on your ear ... I wear hearing aids and have noticed that the Maxx is very particular about placement. If moving it around doesn't help then have someone else try it (like a dealer) and see if it is defective.
I have had the same volume issue with my maxx. phone packing date 8/23/13.
Volume was great the first day on phone calls and speakerphone. Then, yesterday the headset volume (at max) was insanely low on calls. It put it on speakerphone (max volume) but could still only make out parts of my call. I rebooted once. I ripped off the otterbox commuter mid-conversation thinking it was covering part of the earpiece speaker. No change. I toggled airplane mode, no change. I DID notice that exactly where I held my ear made a difference--if I didn't hold my ear just over the one thin speaker hole, I would have zero volume.
Then I power cycled a second time. Instantly, symptoms went away. I had to lower earpiece volume quite a bit, and when set loudest it sounds like the person is shouting at me. I put the call on speakerphone and everyone in the car complained it was so loud. When the issue was occurring, the speakerphone call was barely noticeable. In fact, I had to hold the phone an inch or two away from my ear to make out any part of the call .
This is a real problem. Fortunately there is a work-around that for some has worked quite well. When you put the phone against your ear and realize you can't hear the other person, turn the volume DOWN one notch. That's right... turn it down. The volume will jump up to a much higher level. Rebooting only helps for a call or two, this seems to work well without rebooting the phone. I hope they get this fixed soon.
