I have a pc that I plug my headphones into. The sound is awesome. I just want to increase the volume as it is not that loud. All my volume settings in Windows media player are on full and the system volume is on max too. Does anyone know any free software or cheap hardware that will increase the volume?

Post away if you can!

Suggest you order your hearing aid now

that's really helpful - has anyone else got any other suggestions?

If you are using low impedance headphones, it is possible they will not be load enough. You probably need high impedance.

I may also be the other way round, as an impedance mismatch can alter the volume.

Try a different set.

What about Volume in System Tray, double click the sound icon

Just buy a small amplifier and plug the headphones into that

On your sound device have you selected the type of speakers you are using Ie stereo 5-1 etc
If you can listen with cans with everything showing full volume then even with a serious impedance mismatch something very wrong somewhere

I've just noticed the volume wasn't quite on full. I remember you being a genius from when I used to post a lot of threads a couple of years ago!

Is there any software/hardware that would increase it slightly further.

The kind of music I like sounds better louder!

Cheers mate

what do you mean by sound device eedcam, do you mean windows media player?

No software you need to put it through a HiFi, from line out on Sound card to input in HiFi
