No more High setting in music volume?

I just updated my Clip+ firmware to the newest version (01.02.09) and noticed that the volume level is way too low for my Sennheiser’s to produce efficient sound. I also noticed this in the release notes:

“Max volume level is lowered in Normal volume setting to comply with new European Union requirement”

I can’t find the volume setting in anywhere! In my 2Gt Clip it is located in -> settings -> volume -> high, but in my Clip+ there is no such option anywhere! Is this a bug or a feature?

It's a legal thing.

 

Use the 'reset factory settings' option in system settings.  For region choose something that isn't Europe.

Thanks for that. What an utterly ridiculous situation.

It's really just the EU trying to protect your hearing.  Personally, I'm fine with doing that myself.  Perhaps it's good for younger kids.

Indeed. But, what about us older people (who are already slighly deaf because the EU wasn't their to protect us before!)? I was a bit stumped by the sudden drop of volume following a frimware upgrade. You shouldn't confuse old people like that. Bad EU.:smileywink:

 

PS Other than the voulme, what's the actual difference between the regions? Thanks.

Re: No more High setting in music volume?

Actually, that's a very good point, as to those with hearing deficits--the EU pushes the burden of a workaround on them, rather than having a simple switch.

 

The region setting also may affect the fm radio, although that separately can be handled under the Radio Options menu.  I'm not aware that anything else is impacted.
