    Check the preamp setting in the equalizer.

    I tried everything, I almost have to max the volume to hear music at half way. Then I switch to play music player at same volume level and it's extremely loud! I've been having a lot of audio problems with this phone since Friday when I got it.

    That setting did nothing for me. Are you using it on the edge?

    I agree with @SIOP, had to change the same setting, but works fine now. And yes, I have the Edge.

    Tried it again... Volume at halfway, I can't hear nothing on poweramp.... I use any other music player with the volume the same, I hear it the way it supposed to be..... Between this and the Aux static issue in my car, looks like I'm taking this back and going G5... Most likely... This is ridiculous....

    if this only happens with Poweramp.. it's the devs for poweramp that need to address compatibility ... haven't read your aux issue... but from a poweramp perspective it's the App ... they need to ensure it works on all types of hardware..

    So basically, poweramp does not work on my S7.... Low volume, and static.... I grabbed blackplayer and it works just fine.... Not as good as poweramp, but will do until they fix it....

    This has been discussed on other forums (XDA) it seems to only happen on Snapdragon versions of the S7 Edge.
    You are not alone.

    Try this, when not playing music change this setting:

    Settings > Audio Engine > Advanced Tweaks > Direct Volume Control DESELECTED

    PowerAmp 3 Alpha 704 has really improved things on my S7 (non edge exinos), it now is back to S4 volume behavior, and the new UI is nice too.

    Edit: Direct Volume Control tweak helped a little , using the alpha is a must.

    You are a genius. I have seen those two settings for direct volume control and Bluetooth direct volume control, but I have never realized that could be the fix for the low volume problem. I did exactly what you said and it fixed the problem immediately.
    I am using a "ZTE Grand X Max 2" telephone with OS version marshmallow 6.0.1 . My Poweramp version is 2.0.10-build-588-play with no plugins installed.

    Just so everyone knows, having these two options enabled can also cause the "Replay Gain" (RG) features not to work.

    Also, if you have these two features enabled you will notice that the bass level decreases as you turn the volume up and the sound will become distorted when you turn the volume up to maximum. So it is best just to disable these two features all together.

    Thanks again to the person that posted the answer which is shown above, you have solved multiple problems with this fix.

    On another note, there is a separate issue that I think people here should know about. Whether you have DVC enabled or not the following issue will occur in version 2.0.10 or later. When using The Equalizer in Poweramp, if you try to increase the level of bands 2K, 4K, 8K, or 16k it will cause the treble knob to stop working. It seems that this is some sort of a glitch. The current Poweramp version that is available as of this comment is version V3 build 703 Alpha. In this latest version the issue is still not fixed. A workaround is to turn the "tone" button off and strictly use the equalizer to change the bass and treble.
