    Which volume are you trying to boost? Ringer? Media?

    If it's media, you can try Noozxoide from the play store.

    I've been using this one. It's not free, but worth every penny. It takes the place of the native music player. It contains a parabolic equalizer to contour the sound quality and has volume boost.

    There is a free version if you just want to try it out before buying too.

    Remember, the audio amplifier chip in the phone - the thing that produces the audio signal that's fed to the speaker - has a maximum output (It just can't produce more) and it's being run close to maximum as the phone comes stock (close to, because the maximum allowable varies with temperature, and if they designed it to run at max in Fairbanks, AK in the winter, it would blow the amplifier in Houston, TX in the summer - which would require a motherboard replacement.

    There are apps that shape the audio (equalizers) to make it sound louder to your ears (everyone hears "loudness" differently) and some apps that drive the amplifier harder, but that also drives up the distortion. (Considering what I've heard some teens listening to, as long as the song is barely recognizable, it doesn't matter how distorted it is.)

    But you're not going to get 10 Watts of audio out of a Note 3 without an external amp and speaker. (And considering these 250 Watt per channel car setups, you should realize that 10 Watts isn't that loud.) Even if you could, that little speaker in the phone would probably blow out at the first click.

    I just hate getting the warning about the volume being too high for human ears when I'm using the aux cord into the headphone jack. Every single time the phone turns the volume way down. Then I have to turn it up to get the warning, dismiss the warning, then turn up more. Asinine

    Well ... there's no way for the phone to know if what's on the other end of that wire is a pair of very sensitive headphones or a dummy load. Maybe they should give us an audio aux output on the microUSB connector. (And while I'm dreaming, maybe they can settle on a more sturdy connector for the industry - microUSB is about as bad as it gets, but at least it's a standard.)
