    Im new to windows phone . love it so far but the headphone volume is the worst ever.

    is there a way to boost it ??

    coming from android i could edit the headphone profile xml on all my previous devices , can it be done on here ??

    also is root possible on this device

    As far as I know that kind of tweaking is impossible on WP. Rooting is definitely impossible.
    I'm surprised at your complaint though, I don't very often listen to music, but when I do I never feel the need to set the volume higher than 12/30 on my 830 (the quiet start of some pieces of classical music excepted). Same for videos, in fact, I find 30/30 to be downright deafening.

    30/30 on my device is awful for headphones. even changing the eq settings makes no difference .

    It entirely depends on the resistance of the headphones attached. Comparing numbers without this info is meaningless. OP, the output from these phones is fine for normal usage. If you have a high ohm set, you should be using an in-line amp.

    Same here. I usually listen to 15-20 max on my headphones.

    Did you update your phone since you got it? Try doing a soft reset.
    And try disabling audio leveling.

    I stay within the 20-25 range, no need to go higher, I use Samsung galaxy in ear headphones.

    Ear buds typically use less power than over the ear headphones. And the more efficient the less power needed to drive the devices. The beats are probably just not that efficient. If it is an issue and you like the phone youre only option would be to get a headphone pre-amp

    I think the problem is when you plug into external speakers, like the aux in your car or desktop speakers, I find using a set of decent headphones 🎧 the volume is more than adequate, but plugging into the aux in the car 🚗 it's much less volume output than my iPhone 5s or android htc one, perhaps the Nokia reads the type of connection and adjusts the level accordingly.

    Using a pair of Beats Headphones I also noticed a drop in volume on my 930.

    But unfortunately I only have the HTC 8X to compare with, and this had Beats built-in.

    In the settings go to audio. There you can use the equalizer and adjust it to your needs. It only works when you have a headset plugged in.

    I don't think that your phone has the problem, but the headset you use. This advice I gave you will definitely help you.
