While using the Rhaspody app and my iPhone earbuds, I need to turn the volume all the way up to 28 or 29 to hear the music. What am I doing wrong? Is it the App, the earbuds, or the phone?
If it's the earbuds, can someone recommend a good quality semi-inexpensive pair?

Whats weird is that playing music through these apps (datpiff, youtube pro) on the speaker, it sounds basically the same as music through zune player. Maybe a little lower...but plug in headphones and the drop is ridicoulous.
Hoping there is a fix.

Actually I might be on to something there. My Sennheisers are 16 Ohm and my Klipsche are 32 Ohm, but my rocketfish are 16 ohm... now the rocketfish are AHJ, so maybe they get a different headphone profile? Does the hardware adjust output based on impedance? My research on SPL and impedance doesn't seem to relate to the behavior I'm seeing from the phone.

Since I posted I tried two other brands that were lying around my house collecting dust and they worked just as well at the iPhone earbuds: pretty darn lousy.
Anyone know if this sound issue can be corrected via a firmware update or is this a hardware issue?
