    Previously, when headphones were plugged in, media players would display an 'unsafe volume' alert if you turned the volume above 40%

    Since upgrading to Marshmallow, all of my apps are unable to override the 40% volume limit. Any attempt to raise the volume, even with the volume button, and it just resets to 40% again.

    This is very frustrating, considering I can't hear media on the train commute – which is the primary use for my Android device.

    I've never noticed a percentage reading but I had two Bluetooth earphones. One gave me an adequate volume--I'm quite deaf--and the other didn't. So, I gave the low volume earphones to a nephew in the hopes he won't go deaf, too. Perhaps your problem is the earphone.

    It's not the earphones.

    This is a screenshot from the VLC media player, which is also how I read the 40% volume level. You can see the slider just won't go above that level no matter what I try. It's the same for other media players.

    I've had the exact problem with my Nexus 7 (2013) after upgrading to Marshmallow. Any solution for this?
