    Same dealeo. With small little earbuds it's not as bad, but when I listen through my cans it is much less loud. I think just the aux output isn't as strong as some phones.

    I only did it to test it out and the Nexus 4 at max isn't that loud to begin with. I also never use headphones anyway. I prefer a receiver/speakers over headphones.

    That makes sense because I noticed a bigger difference with the max volume in my car than testing it out with headphones. I'm going to try the same volume test tomorrow in my car when I get a chance and see how far off the volumes are in both phones.

    i just used headphones because i wanted to see how audio output would compare with a different device. what the actual audio output is (speakers, headphones, etc) shouldn't really vary. also, i didn't want to go to my car because its cold outside lol

    Yeah when I test it in my car tomorrow, I'm expecting it to be the same result. About 2 or 3 volume level difference between my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4, but since it's with speakers, the gap between 12/15 to its max 15/15 on my Galaxy Nexus will sound bigger than on headphones.

    Hoping for a software fix/mod for this. I struggle with listening to music in the car because the output is so low. I pretty much have to crank my car stereo all the way up and it's still not crazy loud. Seems about half as loud as my old iPhone used to output.

    Same here... I hope this issue gets addressed by Google. It seems like every phone has this too, so I can't just send it back to Google and get a proper one.

    I love everything about my N4 except this glaring issue with the aux volume. I live in NYC and listen to various content through headphones anytime I am on the subway, and my N4 puts out way lower volume compared to my old Droid X. Does Google have a way for us to give feedback about what we'd like to see in future updates to hardware and software? I didn't see anything on the N4 support page...

    I saw that, but I don't want to have to root and install a custom recovery on my phone to fix the issue. Even though that's easy to do, I want to leave my phone completely stock.

    People in the thread are saying it works with stock, so really all you need do is root (which I already am). I think I'll try this soon.

    This is one of the few gripes I have about the phone. however, I just had a JVC stereo installed in my older accord, and I use the N4 with it over Bluetooth and the volume is just fine on that device. Where I do get a little frustrated is around the home where I've got some older computer style speaker set ups, with a 3.5mm plug, in different rooms. On those speakers, the volume--even on max--isnt high enough, and is actually rather low when compared to how loud they used to be with my iPhone. Hope its addressed in an update if possible.

    What have you learned in trying this? I'd like to know if this is a legitimate fix.

    I meant to include your quote. Have you tried this fix? What do you think of the end results?

    I just was using spotify in my car today with my n4. It was fine. With my old phone I have volume 2 clicks away from the max, and the car stereo's volume setting at like 20. With the nexus I put the phone volume at the max and the car stereo volume around 18-20, and it was the same as the previous phone. This leads me to conclude one of the following possibilities:
    1. My nexus is not affected by this issue
    2. My previous phone (galaxy s) also had a low volume output
    3. I listen to lower volume levels than you guys

    Tried it today in my car and it is much lower than my SGS2. But it was still loud enough with room to spare.
