Default Anyone else experiencing extremely low volume from google now responses

This is only on headset. the volume is so low the audible responses from google now inquiries is near impossible to make out.

say you are listening to pandora at a comfortable non ear splitting volume of 6 out of 10 max volume. you pause and ask google now how is the weather and its audio is 2 out of 10. this is with me pushing volume up while google now is responding and still only having max volume of 2 out of 10.

its not rom dependent. its been like this on stock 4.4, 4.4.1 4.4.2
