Re: problems changing volume & sound horrible
Your player is flipped. It thinks that it's connected to an external device, and acts as if it in line out output. When outputing to line out, you really don't have volume control, and you hear it right with the headphones, you would be missing some amplification.
Try to reverse the actions that choose line output:
Press and hold BACK. The Home menu appears.
Press the arrows to select the settings icon(looks like a suitcase), and then press play/pause.
Press the up/down buttons to select Audio Output and press play/pause.
Now you should see "line out" selected. move the arrows to another setting - headphones if available, and press play/pause.
Now unless something is really wrong with your player it should work.
If it doesn't, use your warranty if valid, send for repair.

To switch between speakers and headphones on Firefox, make sure your headphones are plugged in first, Right click on volume on the bottom right corner of your screen, Then select Volume Mixer, then double click on System sounds, Click on the playback tab, then you could switch between speakers or headphones, just select one and click "set default" and OK only sounds in firefox will play in the headphones, and windows media player will play on the speakers
You could leave your windows media player to play on the speakers while you listen to firefox videos in the headphones
If you want the media music player to play in your headphones also; You have to change it in the media player program, go to options on the media player, then look for playback devices, there should be 2 options speakers and headphones, just pick one
I usually set the firefox audio to my headphones, and a media player to the speakers
<p>He the volume of the iPod Touch can be affected in some way,
the definition of musical sound check the volume limit set in the settings
device preferences. The tool of sound check, which can also be found on iTunes,

grow beyond a set point, which helps the potential adverse effects of hearing
loss caused by loud music. <br />

<p>4. Adjust the volume to your headphones. Press the
"+" button on your Apple headphones, the volume of a music or video
playback to increase. If a song or video does not play, the volume control
adjusts the volume on the iTouch. <br />
As J8 can vary in usage from circuit board to circuit board, it would be somewhat difficult to solve your issue without knowing the manufacturer, model, & revision # of the product in question. However, chances are that the default settings already allow for front audio input use of headphones & microphone. Also, you should investigate your sound settings within the operating system, primarily, (& the sound settings of whichever software program in question, secondarily). Make sure that you UNMUTE the volume for the front speakers. The microphone should only be taken off of mute in the settings for recording volumes--otherwise the output (speakers/headphones) could loop back through the input (microphone), yielding a reverb effect at lower volumes & a horrible sqelch at higher volumes. A communication programs such as Skype® can help with setting the proper level of volume (gain) for the microphone for optimizing your microphone/headphone experience.
Make sure your Volume is not in mute. Check if your speakers are connected to your PC and switched on. Then you can try to change the Sound Settings(check Audio>>Sound Playback>>Default Device) in Control Panel. Try to check with a different set of speakers or headphones. You can also try to reinstall sound drivers If none of the above seems to solve your problem, there could be a h/w fault. You could try contacting your PC manufacturer for support.
1 Please check the headphones on any other device to make sure that there is nothing wrong with them and they are functioning normally.
2 Switch on the Nano and press MENU
3 Go to settings and go to clicker. It will show 'speakers'
4 Press the center and it will change to headphones.
5 Set it there.
6 Similarly you can adjust the volume.
The thing you need to realize is, the headphones are not defective. Headphones cannot choose to individually make voices/game noises/music louder or quieter. Either they play audio or they dont. What your issue is, is configuration with the xbox (the soucre FEEDING the headphones) Only there can you choose the amount of voice/game noises/music and their respective levels. Below is a link that headphone company has on their site for the settings you need to change in your xbox. http://www.skullcandy.com/manuals-and-drivers.html (see the second section, second option doesn "xbox settings for lowriders") Any further settings will need to be assisted by an xbox support person.
