    I've seen some similar reports on the internet but, anyone else having this problem as well?

    Updated the S3 (international version) to Jellybean a little while ago and everything seems fine.

    One thing I noticed is that the volume through the earphones are very very low. I've had to crank the volume all the way up and it's still not as loud as it was before I updated to Jellybean. It makes the music extremely quiet and it actually sounds worse bass/clarity wise.

    Not only is the volume low but the bass/clarity quality seem to be worse.

    I've posted this on xda and other forums but, besides the custom rom approach, there doesn't appear to be any other answer.

    Anyone else running into this problem after the JellyBean update?

    Boot into recovery (hold home and volume down while powering on) and reset cache.
