    I wonder if setting Loudness Equalization would help? I don't have an RT (yet), but I do have Win8 on a Samsung Slate. I have to set the Loudness Equalization to make the volume loud enough to hear.

    Can anyone with a Surface RT try this to see if it helps?

    I went into the speaker configuration, in desktop mode, and set the speakers as full range. It seems louder to me but it could be my imagination.

    Ditto. I did basically the same thing I have always done on my laptop in both Windows 7 and Windows 8 and it helped.

    I just plugged in my beats for the first time... the speakers may be soft but DANG can it push some big sound to headphones! Thing gets louder than my laptop and sounds good too!

    Extremely soft to the point where I am thinking this must be a software bug as there is no way people working on this could have thought that max volume being so low was acceptable.

    I had issues with certain file types playing sound too soft. I think it was mostly x264 videos.
