Sony does in purpose LIMIT the output volume in their music devices. Hardware of these devices is really capable of louder but...
I heard they do that even in their WALKMAN players.
Eg. I have my Xperia Miro (I know pretty outdated) which played really low and bad on Sony ROM. But when I installed Cyanogenmod 10 headset volume was insanely LOUDER and better. Speakers were lower though! THEY CAP AUDIO TO SOME LIMIT ON PURPOSE!
They protect your hearing I guess...
If you can stand low volume and you're an audiophile I suggest you install Cyanogenmod 12 (soon when it comes). But you will lose other things such as screen quality (yeah screen quality), camera software - quality and such things...
