    Default Bluetooth Headset Not Loud Enough

    I turn the volume all the way up but it just seems way too quiet. I used the same headset on my LG Versa and it was fine. Now, I can barely here the other person. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, but like I said, I used the same headset on my prior phone and there was no problem at all. It was almost too loud -- not too quiet. Any other ideas?

    Same problem here. Used same headset with my Dinc and it was almost too loud, but now I can barely hear it on the TB.

    I agree, I tested mine out last night and it was definitely quieter than my Storm2. Also I was very surprised that the volume of the speaker phone was way too quiet! With the speaker bar on the back I assumed that wouldn't have been an issue at all.

    My Motorola Bluetooth is much lower on this phone than it is on my iPhone 4 and BB Curve.

    +1 way too quiet - I have to turn the volume pretty much all the way up on the Handsfree in my Acura and then back down quickly after the call before my XM/CD etc cuts back in! My Inc was fine. Loving the TB other than that.

    My volume is lower while connected through my trucks bluetooth than my Fascinate was. It's to low for my liking.

    I'm using Jabra CLIPPED ear buds, and thought the volume was plenty loud.

    Did you raise the volume with both the headset controls and the ThunderBolt's volume button?
    The two volume controls are not linked, so make sure to try turning them both up to get the highest volume.

    My handset is turned up all the way as is the call volume in my truck. 2007 Dodge Nitro with UConnect. Never an issue with any other phone I have used. BB Storm1, Incredible, Facinate.

    +1 for low bluetooth volume. My Nissan Maxima is so low I have to have all the windows rolled up and the volume cranked to the max on both the phone and car. My Storm would blast me out. Also the speaker phone volume is so low it is useless as a speaker phone.

    +1 for low Bluetooth volume in my vehicle. Both the TBolt and handsfree volume at full and I still find it difficult to hear the other party on the call. I will try my old Jawbone, but would prefer to use hands free in the car.

    I have the jawbone prime, and this older jabra headset. The jabra seems to be plenty loud, but the jawbone isn't that loud though. Odd that it's on a headset by headset basis. Wonder if this is something with HTC software or the physical phone itself.

    Funny thing, i just checked my jawbone again, and it was fairly loud as usual. It's odd that other times before it's been fairly quiet.

    +1 for the low volume in car. I have Ford Sync and I have to crank it compared to my DX. I did figure this out tho and it may he'll you as well.

    Just simply hitting the volume rocker up on the phone does nothing. It says its adjusting the Bluetooth volume but it does not. If you have another app to adjust volumes like "audio manager" and adjust the IN CALL VOLUME it does get louder. Unfortunately there is no way to adjust in call volume while connected to Bluetooth devices.

    I guess you could make a call to vmail, raise your in call volume, hang up then connect to your Bluetooth device.

    Sounds like a firmware bug to me. They liked the volume to the wrong area IMO.

    Same issue here. Call volume using my Bluetooth Device is WAY too low. Even with the "raise your call volume before connecting to the device" idea above, it starts at medium volume and then fades slowly to almost nothing over the next 15 seconds. Pretty much inaudible while driving. However, on things like Navigation, etc. it is plenty loud and stays loud. Weird. Never had this issue with any other phone.

    Adjusting the volume rocker on both my phone AND the bluetooth device says its adjusting the Bluetooth Volume but the audio level of the phone call doesn't actually change.

    You're not alone at all. I have several headsets here and I've tried 2 of them that I could actually wear if they solved the volume problem and neither one gives me enough volume.

    I wonder if this is something that could be fixed with a version update or if it's all a hardware issue that can't be changed? Does anyone know?

    Same here. Sync'd through the Bluetooth in my car stereo and the audio is extremely low. I was testing out the Amazon Cloud Player and I had to crank the volume on the stereo to hear it. The phone is already maxxed.

    I was on a speakerphone call the other day, I heard the caller fine, but he said he had trouble hearing me. At the time I wrote it off to the usual speakerphone problems, but now I wonder...

    I should mention that my prior phone was the Droid and I had no volume problems with it.

    Dunno if this is just me, or the fact that my headset is 2+ years old. But once I started a call with the bluetooth connected, I pushed the volume up rocker and it said something like bluetooth volume and I haven't been able to find that setting anywhere else. My headset is now louder during a call than with my last phone (an Ozone), but when it's not during a call it still sounds quiet.
