One thing to check is that all the volume sliders are 'up' in alsmixer. Often the speaker/headhone or PCM channels are set lower.Other users prefer pulseaudio/veromix which I understand can add more gain.

Hello,since a few weeks my sound volume on Arch is very low but for me it became conscious now. The audio volume is at least half of standard ALSA, possible only a third. When I remove pulseaudio and pulseaudio-alsa and restart the system the volume is right. I use KDE SC 4.8.3 and PulseAudio 2.0 on Linux 3.3.6-1 but I can't say to you when the problem has occurred.
Hi,I have strange behaviour of Pulseaudio after any updates. Every time when I login to KDE I have Built in audio 100% volume, also when play any system notification sound then change to 100% volume.After uninstall Pulseaudio with ALSA only is OK.Any idea please?
I have the same device on my desktop and audio levels are the same in Linux and winxp/win7. Using snd_hda_intel also in the kernel. lspci | grep -i Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)I am using Pulse-Audio with alsa libs. My speaker system is a Logitech X51 5.1 sound or something..
playing around with my new Nexus 5 I recognized a problem to control the volume of my external bluetooth loudspeaker.
First, the speaker connected normally as it used to with my GNex (JB 4.3). But with the Nexus 5 the volume seems to stay at maximum only. Pushing the volume buttons +/- of the phone shows up the volume control and I can see the volume going up and down.
I just got an old Trust surround USB Headset to work on Ubuntu 11.10.
However, the volume controls are bugged. Touching a slider in the taskbar or banshee in any way (even sliding it to the lower end) would set the volume to about 5000%. This usually causes me to jank the headset right off my head.
