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?
Solved! Go to Solution.

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

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.
