Media volume extremely low on wired headphones -- no fixes work, unusable

Re: Media volume extremely low on wired headphones -- no fixes work, unusable

have you tried those headphones with another phone? perhaps the DAC in phones isn't able to drive them properly. I'm using Sennheiser HD471g and they get uncomfortably loud in a quiet environment. I don't have a BT headset so I can't comment on volume there.

Re: Media volume extremely low on wired headphones -- no fixes work, unusable

Solved.  Bought a pair of wireless headphones.  I was relieved that they were way louder. Now the wired headphones also have good volume! I didn't change settings at all. Just restarted a couple times.  I doubt it was interfering apps as volume was low on wired headphone even in safe mode and after a repair install.  So hooking up the wireless headphones changed something.  Got me.  Sorry for wasting the band width and the time of responders on this forum.
