I find the minimum volume of my Clip Jam way too loud when I’m in silence. As a work-around I’m using the SW MP3Gain to reduce the “normal” volume of my podcasts to 75 dB. Then the minimum volume is much lower and more appropriate for quite environments.
However, as far as I know, there is no work-around for the radio. The custom equalizer helps a little bit to reduce the volume but that’s not enough.
Surfing the forums it seems the loud volume had already been a problem in previous models:
Is the loud volume an issue for you too? Has anyone found out a fix?
