Anyone know how to get the earphone volume increased on the galaxy S2.

I have read some posts which have samsung service codes, but when running them it says "invalid code".

Anyone know what code I need to turn the earphone volume up ?
Lots of posts but no one seems to have nailed it for GS2.

I concur. Volume level is too low even at max volume. Using my car's AUX jack, I only need VOL 30 with my iPhone 4 at max volume. I have to turn up to VOL 40 to get the same volume with the SGS2 at max volume. (2008 Mazdaspeed 3).

The code is a nice start, but not sure where to go from there.

this problem is not only a headset problem, its a over all volume issue (most importantly handset) I have that problem too, here is three possible solutions that worked for me, and "MIGHT" work for you.

Give these a try and be sure to give a feedback whether it works for you or not:

A) Enter service mode by typing below code on your dialer :
click the following:
Choose Handset, headset, Speaker (which ever you want higher volume)
[1] SRC Speech RX Volume
Change default values and higher the values any number of your choosing, here is an example:
[0]0_lvl : 68
[1]1_lvl : 72
[2]2_lvl : 76
[3]3_lvl : 80
[4]4_lvl : 84
[5]5_lvl : 88 Higher these values to until hear volume improvement.

Can also edit the values from:
[2]DST I2S1 TX Volume
[3]SRC I2S1 RX Volume: 100
[4]DST Speech TX Volume: 94

This is Samsung volume setting, worked for several people but sadly only worked 2 times for me and values keep resetting for me (doesn't mean for you, so give it a try) Also this is based on STOCK firmware.

B) the second thing you might to try is app called Volume+:
This app guarantees it higher the volume without the need of touching its default settings, BUT huge drawback it highers everything: Headset, speaker and Bluetooth EXCEPT HANDSET which is the most important :(
(I also downloaded many volume increase apps, but Volume+ was the only one got the job done for everything but handset)

C) Lastly get GOOGLE VOICE app (create a GV account if you don't have one)
just by installing Google and logging on, every time you make a call, your calls get forwarded through Google voice and volume levels become acceptable in ALL HANDSET, HEADSET, SPEAKER, BLUETOOTH (just like phone should of have been) (this what i personally use fix my volume issues)

Hope one of these work for you.
