If you have the screen on it'll give a disclaimer about volume. If you don't have the screen on and accept the warning it'll never go higher than 75% I think it was.  All Samsung phones do this for some reason.

I really surprised you need it louder. I usually can only stand my volume with earbuds set on one notch above mute and sometimes that is too loud.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

You don't have to spend a lot for good earbuds. I use el-cheapo JVC earbuds & they have more than enough volume no matter what I connect them to. And they sound utterly fantastic when connected to a dedicated mP3 player. Sounds WAY better than any smartphone.

Check the sensitivity ratings when purchasing earbuds & you should be good to go. The higher the number, the better.

for my 800 dollar phone i want more bang for my buck/unless you own the s7 edge/ you might not understand the sound deviation as i do lately/mine at one notch is barely a whisper. ask any with same device. if it were sony or htc, i would be in heaven

I have used HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Asus (Nexus), Nokia, Apple devices and SanDisk MP3 players with the same brand (and sometimes the same set) of headphones and all of them have been set a the low end of the volume scale and most of the time at one notch above mute to enjoy my music and not have my eardrums hurt afterwards.

Personally I would never willingly purchase an $800 phone especially not a Samsung.

I don't have that problem you are experiencing. All that annoys me is the 75% warning. It should only have to tell me once. This is a new thing Samsung does.
