    I just got a droid for christmas and the sound makes it almost unusable for media I'm not playing with the intention of having others listen. Coming from an iphone the difference is considerable. I heard that the phone was supposed to be to quiet as well? Hmmm. Anyway can I decrease the volume to below the minimum of 1/15? I want this to apply to the phone in general so it applies to sound in every application eg pandora.

    Im not sure I understand your question ... you do know you can turn the volume up and down? You can turn the volume down to nothing if you want.

    I'm sure I just don’t understand your question.

    Try Volume Master in the Market. In addition to Media Volume which you are controlling, there is System Volume that you can get at with that app.

    Good luck, but I think you're crazy, this phone isn't too loud.

    if anything, the phone tends to be too damned quiet.

    "I tried calling you, but you ignored me."
    You didn't call, wait I'll show you......Wut? Ok, so you did call me but I didn't hear it.
    "Yeah, sure. What were YOU doing?"
    Huh? Wait...No. Damn.

    I use AudioGuru for all my separate volume settings. Might be worth looking into.

    The OP is the first I've heard say the DX is too loud. I can hardly hear an incoming call . . .

    :)

    Well I've tried downloading several audio programs but all they do is provide a nice gui for the default volume setting. In other words, the options to set the volume is within 0-15. I agree that the phone really isn't too loud during in call or alerts, I use my phone in bed and it's loud enough to wake up in nearby rooms. Anyways, the only volume setting that really applies to me is the media setting. I really need to find a way to make it like .5 out of 15. If anybody knows an app or a hack to make it do this, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm on 2.2 by the way.

    Have you tried taking it into a VZ store? I honestly think that there's something wrong with it if the media volume it too loud at level 1. You really should be barely able to hear it on level 1 and that's if it's right at your face. I would take it back to where it was bought and get it replaced.

    It really is a great phone, I just think you got a lemon.

    +1 to both of you.

    I have noticed that if the back of my phone is against something (like sitting next to me on the arm rest) I can't hear it at all. It's not the greatest location for the speaker, but I guess there really isn't a better place to put it. Oh well, vibration for everything is nice too.

    If you think your X is too loud, you should have been around in the 2.1 days when I could barely hear it right next to my face.

    If the volume is too loud and people near you can hear your media, have you thought about headphones? Mine come in very handy.

    Look [everyone]...this is a real problem. I am a stroke survivor and certain types of sounds are perceived so loud they hurt...even when others barely notice. Instead of [making light of the issue, please try to] answer the question intelligently (deleted). I am looking for a free app that will turn volume up or down in very tiny increments.
