Default [Q] S4 i9505 Low sound volume on headphones

Hello guys, I just want to ask if it is normal for i9505 s4 to have low volume sound on using headphones even on full volume?

I tried the same headphones on an itouch and it is much louder on full volume and when i tried it on s4, the volume is just half as the itouch volume even on full.

Thanks.

I too have an iPod Touch and at full volume it can be slightly louder than the S4 but I don't listen to my music at full volume so it doesn't bother me. If you're still running the stock ROM, you can try using Adapt Sound. Works only with the stock music player though.

With my IEMs I find it loud enough. As mentioned if you use the stock music player run adapt sound it increases the volume.

Otherwise you can install a kernel like Faux kernel and he has implemented sound control you can increase the gain and boost volume even louder if you wish.

Or you can install Viper4Android and boost volume on that too.

Thanks for the reply guys. I just got my s4 and I'm currently afraid of flashing stuff and etc..

Will flashing a new kernel/rom trigger my knox status? it currently have 0x0.
