But I've done multiple factory resets and this is actually a replacement handset and the same thing happens after I upgraded to 4.3.

Maybe your super loud is my normal
. But yes basically it's the same issue. While on Google Play Music, we both get a low volume until a notification tone comes in then the volume goes up. I was thinking about rooting my phone and installing a kernel that supports Voodoo sound (I had this on my Epic 4G). I've never felt the need to root and run non-stock ROMs since the Note 2 has always been good enough for me in stock form.
I've managed to "trick" my phone by sending an email to myself which triggers the notification tone. But that's kind of nuts to do this on a regular basis. I've been listening to Soundcloud more often now since this issue in Google Play Music is kind of annoying.
