I agree, audio quality seems less important to apple now..I was using iCloud but now i need to adjust the volume i cant.
Maybe time to move on, the HTC one AQ is pretty impressive even with beats off.t

Iris, I dont mean to be harsh but do you really think that in a topic of 121 replies no-one would have thought of that????
This is an issue with the design of the phone (most likely a hard coded volume limit) which cannot be solved by any of the settings, believe me they have all been tried.
This is APPLEs problem and they need to resolve it or risk losing vast numbers of their loyal supporters (of which I am one)

Sorry, but this solved my problem. The ear bud worked just fine when I got the phone in Dec 2012.
It stopped working well after the first software update.
When I put the volume control off yesterday, the ear bud are back working just fine with ehough volume to damage my ears.
I posted this soultion just in case it would help others, obviously, it does not work for you.

Ok well i think you are talking about an issue related to that setting and I am glad you have resolved it. The issue that we are experiencing is that with all limiters switched off, the volume level is significantly lower than that of the 4s or 4 - which is obviously a problem in a phone that is considered an upgrade

I am having the same problem, I brought Iphone 4s 10 momth before and it had a battrey problem so Apple store guys chaged the phone but with new phone the volume through head phone is so less. I use my phone to connect through headphone jack as aux, with my previous Iphone 4s i use to put music at 24 on car sterio but with new iphone4s i have to put it at 31-34 to get the same effect. I tried it with Ipod touch 4th generation and it was workgin fine, at volume 24 i was getting the same effect as my old iphone 4s. I went to the apple store the guy replaced the phone again but the problem is still the same. Just to do an experiment i took my freind Iphone4s who had been using it for more than an year and to my surprize the volume in my car sterio was excellent at level 24. No I am confused how to explain this to Apple guys.

I'd like to believe rhat this is either a design flaw or its is there by design, but I dont see why Apple would degreade the experience. I think this is some kind of a software glitch.
Or it could also be some kind of government regulation of sound levels which no one has officially spoken about.

The same problem here (bought in Czech Republic, December 2012), IP5 is my first iphone so I cant compare to 4 or 4S but the volume level is extremely low. In silent room, when on cca 55%, its like 25% on my previous HTC phone. When listenting outside or in louder environment even 100% does not produce strong sound enough to be worth listening. What a shame Apple. Whats most striking that they just keep ignoring the problem.

Try this, sounds mad I know but worked for me this evening.
If your playing any music pause it. Go into settings and make sure Sound Check is off, EQ off, volume limit OFF and make sure max volume slider is right up.
Give that a go, for me it was turning off EQ which made a massive
Difference. When trying all the EQ presets they all reduced the volume !!!

Re: iPhone 5 headphone volume too low

I have found a temporary fix for this problem.
1) Connect Iphone to Itunes
2) Press CTRL + A to select all audio files
3) Press CTRL + I to open file information window
4) Go to options tab
5) Increase the volume to +100%
6) Select equalizer as CUSTOM

Thats ok if you like poor quality music.. Whilst phones are not audiophile quality i believe most on the forum appreciate audio quality. Work arounds like this are not acceptable.
Ive recently moved to singapore where i tried the local versions against the uk. The singapore version is just like the 4s. Not just volume but quality too... Interestingly the HK version shared the volume but not the quality...
