Default 4.4.1 audio

After receiving the 4.4.1 update my device subjectively seems like it's a bit louder than it was before. Is there any way to check if the audio was boosted at all?

When playing audio in Play Music with volume less than 50%, does it still sound really hollowish/reverbish?

Sound from the speaker sounds better imo... bbm notifications sound is a lot cleaner

Edit... actually I'm not too sure now, still buzzes

Line audio is unchanged. Just tested.

It appears they compressed the ever living crap out of the speaker output.
Dynamic range has gone down significantly. Which means, the loudest sounds are still loud, but the quiet sounds are much louder. Which makes it appear louder than it was before.
