    I tried 100% but the distortion wasn't much . You can increase the volume as per your requirement and the whole point is that it does fix the issue :)

    In my settings I have the 'EU Volume Limit' switched off and the Max volume slider at 100%

    When listening to music with my SoundMagic headphones plugged in the volume slider goes up to yellow, pauses briefly then carries on in to the red and sounds just fine.

    However when I watch YouTube the volume will only go as far as the first yellow marker, refuses to go higher and is way, way too quiet.

     

    Why, Apple? Why??

    Sweet it worked I only did it 50% and I can hear a little distortion but its only minor so thanks for that

     

    Not that we should have to do that though, pull your finger out Apple!!!!

    I don't understand why this is checked as a problem solved! I don't want to use Apple headphones. I want to use my high quality ones.

    same here iphone 5 32 gb with about 20% lower music volume in earpods rather than the iphone 4 and 4s and my ipad 4

    any suggestions rather than jailbreak(and changing the regional volume limits)?????

     

    and apple support: u have to "respond" even in negative to our issues !

    I dont know if i have posted on this thread before but here is my deal...

     

    Got a brand new iphone 5, restored from the backup of my 4, low volume.

     

    Set it up as new, increased volume limit to max, no EU volume limit settings there, still low volume.

     

    MOST IMPORTANTLY: i experience different maximum volumes in different apps!!!! Either the chip is badly designed, which i dont believe could be the case with a company that makes ipods, so... Or, ios 6 is not handling volume correctly on the iphone 5.

    I have been having low volume problems listening to music with the iPhone 5. The earphones I've been using are from my old iPhone 3GS or an iPod. I just assumed it shouldn't be a problem. Apple as apple right?

     

    Now I went back to the Apple iPhone 5 EarPods and the problem is no longer there. When I switch back and forth there is a big difference in output. WIth the old earphones I use full volume but feel I am missing 25%. With the iPhone 5 EarPods I have to adjust the volume down a bit or it's too loud.

    Im in hong kong and i visited the apple store... The volume limits are much higher so its def an applied limit as opposed to a hardware one...

    "Settings->Music->Volume limit-> set it the max so you will see that volume limits is off"

     

    This worked for my slightly deaf mother on an iPad with Bose headphones. Before: Max volume was way too quiet. Now: Acceptable volume is less than Max. Note that this also turns off the volume limit on Podcasts, and other applications (which is what she wanted).

     

    Thanks!

    Ipad has no problem from the beginning,but the problem that we are all suffering here is in the iphone 5

    And we all tried what u suggested but it didn't work

    The problem is iphone 5 music sound on the max on any headphones is about 20% lower than any other idevice.

    Not sure why this is still being discussed. It was solved on page 7! You just need to change the volume of the songs on in your iTunes and re synch them back to your iPhone 5!

    This is not sollution.

      First, we listen music from others sources, especially from Youtube

    Second, we dont want use another device like PC to edit songs, we want simply download music from ItunesApp and listen.

    boosted volume using itunes on mac, resynced the entire library. marginal increase. still not as good as the playback on my ipod nano 6g/ ipad 2 with the original track without boosted volume. i think that makes everything clear.

     

    as i explained earlier.... its a conintually degrading experience with apple...
