    recently I've noticed my iPad Pro sounds great when maxed out, but when I turn it down just 2-3 notches it goes quite a bit lower, (when it's at 30-45% it is a bit quiet. Do all the iPP do this, where above 60% the volume is good but lower it is turned down it gets way low. I notice this especially while watching Netflix (daredevil) that is when I first noticed it. Is there a way to test my speaker output? or is anyone else noticing a lower volume with Netflix too?
    Thanks for any help or input.

    Yes I've noticed that too. On my iPP the volume is lower than usual in Netflix.

    Yeah that was one of the first things i noticed about sound on the ipp. The volume is fantastic and can get quite loud, but it doesnt seem to work in a linear scale. From max volume and working your way down, each click of the volume button is a big dropoff in sound. Once the volume is about 50%, each reduction is less significant and sounds much more natural.

    When playing movies purchased through iTunes I get loud sounding audio. When playing movies purchased through Google Play I get sub-par sounding audio at the same level.

    That sucks, but thanks for the info everyone, i'm glad that I don't need to contact Apple about it.

    See I don't get why the newer iPads do this, the volume at 80-93% is essentially the same, then 60-80% is essentially the same too, then anything lower than 50% becomes practically silent. Why isn't the volume similar to the MacBook where each notch actually has less or more sound as you move it up or down? *I scoff at Apple. *Scoff! ;)

    I noticed this when watching daredevil this morning. Just got done watching my purchases iron man movie on iTunes and it was super loud. Then switched to Netflix and the volume on dd was pretty low. Not sure what's going on

    Yeah I tested it out again myself, Netflix was low but Man Of Steel from iTunes was amazing. I hope Netflix realizes this issue and sends a proper update.
