Media volume too loud on RAZR maxx HD


Hey everyone, this is my first post on the forum, so if this is the wrong section, sorry.

Anyway, when earphones are plugged in, my phone is way too loud, even at the lowest setting. The speakers are very loud too, but that isn't much of a problem. I've tried with 2 different earphones and compared it to my old iPod, and it is much louder. Is this a general Android problem, a Motorola problem, a RAZR problem, or a defect? I can't find any threads related to this anywhere, but I did find an app called fine volume control, which works decently. I still find it annoying that I need to use 1% volume to get acceptable hearing levels. Is there a way to get a general lower volume on the phone?


I've moved this to the maxx HD forum to help get more people with this device to see it.

Generally, volume on android itself is broken up into 4 categories: ringer, notification, call and media. If you lower the volume, it lowers each one based on what's going on. In call while on a call, ringer when on the desktop, media while playing something, etc. If it is the media being turned all the way down, and it is still loud, then it is probably the headphones themselves. They might have their own volume control as well, or might be a loud headset in general.

Mine really depends on the headphones. With my old skullcandy ones, even totally maxed out I can barely hear media from the phone. With my newer sony ones, even at one bar, it's really clear. Amazing difference.
