    I have owned many mp3 players and usually when I reduce the volume the music slowly fades away until it is mute. (we all know that :D)

    But with windows phones it is a different story. The lowest volume setting (which is 1) is still quite loud. And there is a huge difference in volume between 1 and 0. ( 0 is mute)

    Which means there is absolutely no way that you can reduce the volume any lower than 1. There are no software controls built-in to any WP music players (zune, spotify) and the only way to reduce the volume is by using headphones that have volume control wheels built in to the wire.

    EDIT: I am strictly speaking of volume through headphones when listening to music.

    I will assume you're using an Omnia 7, it's a known issue for that phone. There's kind of a way to get around it by going through diagnose tool ##634#

    Just curious.. in what situation are you guys in where Volume level 1 is too loud? Also, speaker or headset?
    Samsung Focus → Samsung Focus S → HTC Titan → Nokia Lumia 920 :)

    Yeah I agree. Seems to me like 1-3 are about the same volume on my titan when using the speaker.

    On speaker, I've noticed the Focus S has a lower volume floor than my Focus or Titan. Headset, I'm still liking the Focus better PURELY for audio quality reasons, so whatever I say on that is going to be baised, lol.

    Well my only issue here is that I cannot reduce the volume any lower and the lowest setting available (which is 1) is MUCH louder than one would expect it to be.

    Sane issue on Trophy. 1 is so loud I can't play Fruit Ninja without everyone in the house hearing it, but too low to gear ringers and alerts.
