    Hi, the headphone volume is a bit high even at the lowest 1 or 1/4 level.
    Just wondering is there any way to lower the whole system volume by software without any addition hardware such as headphone amp or simple variable resistance?

    You can use the app Boom which is basically a system-wide audio amplifier/equalizer. Just lower every band in the EQ and it should do the trick. The app is $6.99 with a free trial.

    Alternatively, use higher impedance headphones.
