I bought this phone coming from an HTC Rezound. First thing I noticed, when using the aux headphone output to any device, car stereo, home theater, mini radio etc. The volume seems way quieter and I have to turn the volume of my stereo way high to compensate. Is this something anyone else has noticed? Perhaps the output voltage is cut back for battery life?

did u see a "volume limiter" message pop up when u try increasing volume while plugged in?

another thing that affects the sound is default settings for EQ (Wired stereo tab),
make sure it's at Effects: Custom, Surround: Off, Eq: Off (or whatever u like).

Compared to my older phones, its volume output is normal.

Yeah, I'm rooted so I've turned off that notice, volume all the way up. I keep my eq off altogether. Maybe the volume is normal, maybe there was something to the beats audio in the Rezound after all.

If you're rooted and have system write protection off, you can edit the file /system/etc/snd_soc_msm/snd_soc_msm_2x to suit your needs. There's various options for different speakers and line output volumes/levels.
