I got the Music Essentials kit with headphones. My issue is that the only volume adjustment I can find that works is the buttons on the side of the phone, and they only adjust in about five large, crude steps. This works OK when I'm playing through the phone's speakers, but with the headphones on, I find that the lowest setting (next to mute) is still too loud. I have tried master volume and that doesn't affect MP3 playback. Any suggestions? These headphones have a button to answer calls, so I don't think a different set of headphones would be the answer, would it?
Had to get a set of ear phones that had volume control for my enVy. Verizon sells for $25...search for "VZWDROPSHS envy" and select the one you have. Saved my ears! (If you turn doen the master volume to a bearable level for earphones, then you can't hear the ringer, etc.)

<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,
check your iTouch music and video library for the stabilization of the
equalizer song for a constant level, the volume limit reduces the volume to
grow beyond a set point, which helps the potential adverse effects of hearing
loss caused by loud music. <br />
<p>1. Press the button to the left of the iPod Touch. The
volume switch top left of the iPod Touch increases the sound volume, and gives
a volume icon on the screen as it grows. Accident on the volume button for the
iTouch, it seemed sound problems. Touch the "Music" icon to start
playing the song, press the volume for music to grow. <br />
<p>2. Adjust the volume control settings. Tap Settings on the
iPod screen Touch, Touch "Music" and tap "volume limit."
Slide the tab to the right of way to reduce the volume bar to change the limit
of the maximum. Press the Home button to save and Settings. <br />
<p>3. Sound Check off. Tap "Music" in the Settings
window and slide the guide Sound Check to the left to the sound check feature
off. A Sound check song keeps playing very hard at the same level. While the
function prevents sudden jumps in volume, can also lead to a series of songs to
play very soft, depending on the quality of the 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 />
<p>While the Tritton AX720 headset is designed to communicate
with other users play games on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game consoles, can
also be used to play music from your iPod to surround improving the sound. The
kit comes with AX720 Controller in a row to adjust the volume of the headset to
adjust, and in combination with an audio cable to connect the controller online
for the iPod Touch. Unfortunately, since the iPod Touch is connected to the
controller in-line, you cannot communicate with other users if you play a game
simultaneously. <br />
<p>1. Connect one end of the stereo audio cable to the door on
the right side of the controller online. <br />
<p>2. Connect the other end of the audio cable stereo headphone
port at the bottom of the iPod Touch. <br />
<p>3. Connect the headset cable into the headset jack is
located on the back of Tritton AX720 amplifier. <br />
<p>4. Connect the power cord from the power amplifier of the
port, and plug the adapter into an outlet. Press the power amplifier, which is
found on the front of the unit. <br />
<p>5. Press the "Play" button on the iPod Touch to
play the music to start. Slide the wheel on the right side of the in-line
volume controller to adapt the music to hear. <br />
If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music.
You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.
the button on the side of your phone for changing volume is a multi choice button if you are in phone mode it turns ringer up/down in ipod mode it is music volume up/down etc.. other thing to check for is weather the mute button at the top on the side above the volume button has not been turned to mute
Ok, here we go. I spent about 3 hours on this issue and sacrificed some functionality on my headphones to solve the low volume music problem.
Clearly some people have had success with less drastic measures so I would suggest trying the following steps in order before dismantling the unit.
Attempt to dry out the headphones in case moisture is the culprit.
Call Motorola. If you are still covered under their 1 year warranty, make it their problem. You get a new set and all is gravy (at least until the new ones poop out). Repeat as necessary.
Attempt a reset of the headset. This was mention in solution 8 and could well work for you.
Try to override the volume up (explained in solution 6)
If none of this works, try the steps outlined in solution 10. In my experience, there was gluey goop everywhere! This might be affecting the connections and causing the low volume.
If none of this works (as was my case), proceed to disassemble the headset in the following manner...
I found that after disassembling, and creating a manual connection between the contacts for the volume + button, the volume would still remain at minimum. Therefore, I believe that instead of the moisture killing the volume + switch, the volume - contacts have corroded in the closed position. This solution will remove the ability to use the volume - button. But, you will still maintain you ability to make and answer calls with the phone button if it is currently operational.
Slowly peel back the red silicone covering over the back of the headset near the power switch. Note: the flap covering the mini USB plug will release once the casing has been opened.
Reveal the four #0 phillips screws on the inside surface of the headset body. Remove them and set aside.
Using your nail, or a flat blunt object (like a butter knife), pry open the casing starting near the mini USB port.
Once it all is opened up into two casing pieces and exposing the circuit board, find the 6 pin JST connector for the left side of the headset. The colors are coded as follows: black for ground, orange for volume -, red for phone button, yellow (almost gold) for volume +, and the last two (I believe they were green and blue) are for the speaker.
Cut the orange wire (if black is pin 1, orange would be pin 2). This will prevent minimum volume problems in the future.
Power on the device without touching any open contacts on the circuit board.
Connect the S9 to your phone or whatever you play music through.
While the music is playing, use a strand of electrical wire or similar conductive material to briefly make contact between the black and yellow terminals on the back of the JST connector. This will replicate the volume + button allowing you to adjust the volume up. I set my volume to about 80-90%. If you set it too high, you will have to make brief contact between the black and orange wire to adjust the volume down.
Close the headset casing and replace the screws.
Glue the red silicone padding down.

Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).
Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?
Use the side buttons to lower the master volume, when your in media mode listening to your music, you have to use the side buttons or flip it open and use the side buttons by squeezing your finger between the big screen and the keyboard, they diodnt think that part out to well.
The ear Piece volume control your talking about only pertains to when your actually on a call.
