    i just got a 5th gen touch and the volume is nowhere near as loud as the 4th gen (i still have the 4th gen too) its not the earphones i am using because they sound perfect on the 4th gen (very loud) but quieter on the 5th gen

    like when i am walking outside i can hear the traffic above the music i have playing :/

    i know there is some EU volume cap (i am in the UK) but i have that option disabled in settings so i don't know why it is so quiet? is there any way to make the volume louder through earphones? maybe if i jailbreak it or something idk

    The thing with iOS sound is there're seperate controls for sound sound
    and system [ringtones, alerts, etc.] sound. I get the volume levels on 'em
    mixed-up all the time! lol Maybe one of 'em is lowered substantially than the other?

    If it's not that, maybe you have a clunker and can exchange it for free for a new one. Hope I have been of some help.

    i jailbroke (idk what the past tense for jailbreak is erm) the ipod and paid $2 for some volume amplifier tweek

    it is supposed to increase the volume by up to 200% but i honestly can't hear a difference :/

    this is really annoying

    I suggest AppleChat. They've been superhelpful with problems I've had
    before and 9 times out of 10 solve it right then & there on the spot!: AppleChat

    Just tap CHAT/SIGN IN so they have your iPod Touch info specifically,
    then talk with the person in realtime to get it fixed. Good luck!
