    Just came across this thread and hope it might help those of us who aren't happy with the maximum volume during a call.

    Voice privacy? - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Basically there is a setting in the phone app called Voice Privacy which supposedly decreases the max volume during calls. Try turning this setting off from within the phone app and see if it helps.

    I am pretty sure that voice privacy is not meant to decrease volume but it encrypts calls end to end so that they cannot be eavesdropped. That said, calls are already encrypted, so I doubt that it will cause much concern if it is turned off.

    From home, settings / sound. Should be the second option listed after volumes.

    Didn't seem to help. I had to experiment with the placement of the very top of the phone to be directly on top of my ear canal to really get loud enough sound. I'm on bluetooth enough though that hopefully it doesn't impact my needs.

    Man! I do not have that option on my droid turbo. There is no sound effects choice.

    My choices under sound is:
    volumes
    phone ringtone
    phone vibration pattern
    vibrate when ringing
    default notification sound
    dial pad touch tones
    etc

    It's the second option, just below volume. It's called audio effects.

    Shoot. I must have a different software version or something. There is no sound effects on this phone. Thanks for trying.

    Audio effects is on my old razr maxx in the exact spot everyone is telling me. But not my droid turbo. I did do the update. Maybe that is why it is not there. Maybe there will be a fix.

    I don't have the Turbo, but on my RMHD there is an alternative way to get into Audio Effects. Open up the Google Play Music app, open up the menu (top left corner). Go into Settings and select Equalizer. See if this works.

    I found today that since the ear piece is so high up, I have to hold the phone lower than I'm used to in order to have my ear canal in the direct path if the ear piece. Might be a stupid suggestion but it helped for me...

    Danny, I noticed just a while ago that by doing that it helped. It just felt a little awkward, but this may be the only option right now. Thanks buddy.

    I tried that and turning off voice privacy made no difference in the call volume.

    Would turning up the voice and treble on the EQ raise the overall volume?

    Worth a shot. I changed to Vocalizer and will try a couple of calls and report back.

    Is it likely the low ear piece volume is a low wattage issue rather than a software issue? Can't be fixed by a software update because there's just not enough power going to that driver?
