Ok, is there any way to increase the sound on an iPod ?, past the maximum setting i mean. Other than getting some sort of in-line booster hardware.

I think iPods in the EU are limited, to reduce the risk of damaging hearing.

In theory, you could always boost the volume level in iTunes. (select all-> edit info-> crank up the jams)

I'm not sure what this would do to sound quality though.

The other option would be investing in some higher powered (or better insulated) headphones. Make sure to look into the "efficiency" of the speakers in your headphones. This measures how well the speakers turn electricity into decibels.

Volumebooster rules.

I run it every few weeks to make sure all my tracks go all the way up to 11
