    Default Volume too low on HTC Desire

    Is this a known issue? I have spoken with MANY people on many different forums and have found that the speaker volume and the headphone volume is far too low. I use sennheiser cx500 noise canceling eardbuds and i can't actually get the volume loud enough to even put them to use.

    Is this a known problem? is there a work around? are there any plans to resolve this? A tiny bit of searching has found that i'm surely not the only one affected.

    All of these threads have many people very dissatisfied with the volume. With the way it is now, I wouldn't refer this phone to anyone. Watching movies, listening to podcasts, and much of my music is EXTREMELY disappointing.

    PLEASE resolve this!

    Just came here to post the same thing! I love my HTC Desire, but as a an mp3 player, or for listening to the FM radio, which i often do, the volume is so low. Really badly low and much worse than any of my previous phones. The volume from the speaker is also too low making it at times hard to hear my ringtone, but it is the headphones volume which may lead to me changing my handset again.

    Yep, same issue here. Media volume is shockingly bad and the actual device speaker is even worse in quality, but its the headphone volume that is the most frustrating.

    The same problem here as well. The media volume is SHOCKINGLY low. I can still live with the loudspeaker volume, but the ones on headphones/earphones is absolutely pathetic. I have tried 2 pairs of earphones, and it is just bad.
    Please see how this can be fixed at the earliest.

    Same here. My HTC Desire is with Vodafone UK. Volume is way too low when playing back media and I often miss calls because i don't hear the ringer. Everything is wound up too 100% too.

    Can we have a fix please.

    Just adding my 2p here. I have the exact same problem!

    I have to turn down the volume when trying to use the speakerphone as anything over 50% badly distorts the sound. However this was in my house where it's nice and quiet, if I were to go into an ordinary street outside I wouldn't be able to hear it at all!

    I've tried the supplied headphones on max volume and to be honest it's not the fault of the headphones here, it just doesn't go high enough.

    And worst of all is trying to listen to a video on a news website etc, in an ordinary outside environment, the speaker is too tinny and quiet, all I can see is their lips moving!

    I'm hoping HTC see 'Sense' and allow the current batch of Desires to be repaired/upgraded at no cost. It's a brilliant phone but what's the point if I can't hear it even ringing?

    Default Volume Probs Too

    Smashing bit of kit this Desire..
    I am very unhappy about the general sound levels. Both for ringing and built in speaker and when using headphones. I have Sennhieser CX300 and have been using them for at least 3 years. The volume is not good enough. I was happily able to hear all when using my older Nok device and others including dare I mention the I -drone. HTC please can you sort this out with a fix of sometype.. I dont want to have to root my phone for this. I cant listen to music on the tube in london as the background noise drowns the music out...

    And yes I have checked the media volume etc... all is set to as high as possible.

    Sort it out and you will rewarded with a million thanks!!

    The thing is, I'm not sure it can be fixed with software - the speaker distorts when pushed over half so making it any louder won't help. It needs replacing entirely.

    I find the only thing that helps is to make an 'ok' sign with your left hand and cup that under the phone's speaker - the volume increases noticeably but it's still too quiet and not in any way a fix for the problem!

    HTC, are you listening?

    Have to agree - lovely phone but useless as a music player. I've got a decent pair of headphones and found the volume to be OK on my G1 but way too quiet on the Desire.

    Default Eris Media Volume unexceptable

    I just purchased an HTC Droid Eris and have placed my music on device. I using a pair of Sony stereo headphones to listen to my music but I am very diappointed with the level of volume that can be achieved on this device. I have the Media volume to the maximum position and though I can hear the music, it is not at all loud enough. In a sterile room it is...ok, but this is not acceptable at all in the gym or even walking outdoors.

    I see there are many post from people having the same problem. Is there not a fix for this yet? This problem is a major component of the device and HTC should take care of this immediately.

    Please email me with any solutions. Thank you. Pete
