    Well, maybe not very quiet, but has anyone else found that the top sound on the touch when playing music is really not that loud? Especially in a crowded place. I'm using the headphones that came with it, but would buying expensive headphones actually make the music louder??
    Thanks!

    Two things to check:

    In 'Settings, Music' do you have the Sound Limiter turned on?

    Do you have 'Sound Check' turned on? This will also quieten your tracks.

    If I turn mine all the way to the top, it is very loud, gets distorted. I have to keep it at around 3/4.

    Mike, I use the headphones that came with it. You might want to look at returning it if it is really that quiet. Is it quiet for all your songs and videos? Like I said, I can't even turn mine all the way up. (on some videos I can, but it is still very loud)

    You might look into Griffin's Ear Jams. These are inexpensive and provide a boost.
