    Just got my phone at lunch, so I obviously haven't made a ton of calls BUT I'm having difficulty hraring the caller with volume at 100%. Bluetooth in my car works fine. Software is fully updated. Anyone else think this is a low volume phone - or is it just me?

    Try disabling Audio Effects from the sound settings. That worked for me.

    It's noticably lower than the 2014 moto x. Audio effects handles speaker and wired effects, not regular calls.

    Not sure I agree with that. It noticeably dampens the volume in call. Had the the same problem with my Droid RAZR M.

    I will say that both the new Moto X (which I returned) and Droid Turbo have some downward directionally firing sound in call so I have to hold both phones just right to hear a caller clearly in a loud room.

    Well don't make the mistake of buying a life proof case. If you think it sounds bad now you ain't heard nothing. I had to take it out.

    I've tried turning off the audio affects to see if it changes the ear piece volume whether better or not. I did not notice a change in ear piece volume or quality. However, I did notice head phone and speaker quality and volume. I believe it only changes speaker and headphone jack like it states. Wonder if we could get an answer from Motorola on this.

    Another thing you can try is turning off 'Voice Privacy' in the Call Settings. It's the last option on the bottom.

    Doesn't make a difference either.

    With other phones I could use max volume to listen to hold music and such without even turning on speaker phone. Seems like this earpiece requires being pressed right to your ear.

    Luckily I use a bt headset most of the day for work stuff.

    It was worth the shot. The volume is fine for me so I'm not bothered by it.

    It's in the phone dialer, bottom right (three dots).

    Mine is still low despite the pair of changes above. With my Moto X, the volume was fine at the mid-range, which left room for improvement when I needed to increase the volume for whatever reason. I'm just curious if those of you not having this issue are at least finding that the volume needs to be all the way up for the volume to be acceptable.

    And while we are on the subject of speakers, some of my audible alarms (text, email, etc) sound like 'sour' notes as compared to what I'm used to hearing from my Moto X. Not sure if that is an issue either.

    I too find the earpiece volume quite low. Haven't found anything that improves it yet.

    Agreed, still low for my liking. This is probably my only real complaint about this amazing phone and I'm sure Moto and Verizon will patch it if we all complain.

    I'm also having issues with the volume in calls. Ideally, we should only have the volume at 70% most of the time. Instead I have to crank it up to 100% and even then I need to have the ear piece positioned just right. Very annoying.

    I agree. Earpiece volume is terrible.
    My other gripes are screen brightness in direct sun is not very good and I wish it had LED notifications.

    Another thread also mentioned that the in call speaker is not centered so you kinda have to put your ear to the right of the front camera to hear it directly.

    My 13 & 14 X were so loud I hardly ever had them above 50% volume. This phone is always on max volume and I'm still almost pushing it inside my ear trying to hear people. I think speakerphone is too low as well. I wish they would fix this fast.

    I didn't find the default volume levels to be a problem, but I like having the option to go louder if necessary. This definitely did the trick.

    I also have issues with the in call volume... dispite of the recommendations in this thread! That is an issue for me since I work on a noisy enviroment. Seems like the Moto X (14) doesn't have that issue...

    I have the same problem. The volume in the earpiece is extremely low on some calls so bad I can't hear the caller except if I turn on the speaker. Other calls I can hear, but not very well. I have the volume at 100 percent. What else can I do?
