Are iPod’s too quiet? Read on…

This little gem i learnt about a few months ago via Q magazine. As some of you iPod users may know in the last-but-one iPod software update they added a new maximum volume control to the firmware, allowing parents and careless people to set the maximum volume level lower than the default. But even before this was introduced, iPod’s from the EU had a reduced maximum volume level compared to the US (I originally bought an iPod Shuffle from NYC, then upgraded to an iPod Mini in the UK, and then a iPod 5G. I could definitely notice the volume level slowly decrease, and i compared it to my sisters 4G to confirm my suspicions). This is due to the respective laws on safety in different countries. Because of the USA’s lack of/inadequate law, Apple released the maximum volume control to try and side-step a lawsuit or three.

Anywho, this piece of kit will replaces a few bytes in the firmware allowing the iPod to be used at MAXIMUM possible volume. Instructions are simple and come with the download. You can get it from their website, here.
