Have they tweaked the speaker volume down?

The sound quality is great, but I kept hearing reviews about the sound being incredibly loud as well. Almost scary loud. But I am not finding this to be the case. Maybe my ears are just getting old (OK, they ARE getting old!), but the speakers volume doesn't seem out of the ordinary (louder than my Galaxy Nexus, but no louder than my new Nexus 7). Has something changed?

Which Nexus 7? It's definitely louder than the 2013 Nexus 7.

Having the two side by side made me wish HTC would come out with a new tablet.

See, that is what I am worried about with my unit, it is not any louder than my 2013 Nexus 7. Sounds a LOT better, but not any louder.

The beats audio adds more clarity and quality with the volume being lower. Turn off beats audio and see the difference.

I absolutely believe that is true, the sound quality is great. But there are times when the volume of a podcast or video is not loud enough when in the car, or when there is any significant ambient noise. I was just expecting to be blasted, I guess! :0)

Sprint lowered the volume due to people blowing speakers. The original software is definitely louder.
