The poster I was responding to made it sound like playing music through a jack will sound better than using BT, which isn't true. I wasn't talking about the OP. I didn't want anyone reading this thread to walk away from it thinking that a hard-wired jack has better sound quality than BT.
You are correct that if the OP has an option between using a jack or the mono phone profile the jack will sound better. I gave him a better option (the Sound Fly) which will let him use the better-sounding BT.

For starters make sure the Android Media volume is set to high, also make sure the app you are using to stream or play podcasts has its own volume set to high (some apps let you link the two, which I recommend). Then you can try adding something like Music Volume EQ by K&K Design to boost the volume (especially bass) even more.
If you stream Sirius do NOT use the SiriusXM app to do it. It will not give you the full 128 kbps sound quality you can get from the desktop app, even though it claims it will adjust dynamically to current network conditions. My solution is to use moble.musicdock.com along with the XiiaLive Lite streaming app.
