With the announcement of the new iPod range, I went an picked up a new Nano yesterday, specifically for use at the gym as it's small and light, and I don't want to have my iPhone in my pocket when running due to the size.

However, as pleased as I am with the Nano, even at the highest volume setting the music is not loud enough. I've compared the same song on the Nano vs my iPhone and the phone is MUCH louder at full volume.

Is there anything I need to do with the Nano to maybe 'enable' a louder volume? The Volume Limit option within Settings is set to max.

Would appreciate any advice.

Cheers.

Wouldn't that mean its limiting the volume to its maximum ability and, therefore, making the Nano as quiet as possible?

What happens when the volume limit is off or set to its minimum?

The Volume Limit option is to protect ears, I think it's Apple's legal safety blanket in case of people suing for damaged ears caused by excessive sound.

Essentially if I set the Volume Limit to say, 50%, then the max I can turn up the main volume is half of what it is capable of, so if I set it to 100% that's the max I'll get volume wise...

I getcha, but it seems counter intuitive to my feeble mind. To me, if you set a limit higher, whatever's being limited should be more prohibited.
