I have a VirginMobile Motorola Triumph, stock but rooted.
I listen to music with both Pandora and Google's Play Music app.
When listening to music, the volume has two modes, 'soft', in which all the way down is too quiet and all the way up is too loud, exactly as it should be. The other setting is loud - just loud. The first click of 'loud' is enough to hurt my ears.
I can change the volume from 'loud' to 'soft' by playing with the Ring or Alarm volumes (not Media). They don't have to change, but they have to be altered briefly to 'reset' it back to 'soft'. Furthurmore, if I receive a notification, text, call, or any other sort of message, the volume becomes 'soft' again.
While listening on 'soft', if the song finishes and naturally continues to the next, the volume will jump to 'loud'. There are other occasions where it does this as well, but I haven't figured out exactly what they are.
I have a stock rooted Motorola Triumph (which does not have MotoBlur) with Pandora installed. Media volume is pretty loud, so I keep it on the first click, always (I also have Audio Manager installed, but this problem was happening prior to installation).
However, when Pandora goes to the next song (either because I skipped, down-thumbed, or just finished the song), the volume gets really loud. It doubles in volume, if not more!
The weirdest part though is that none of the volume sliders (anywhere!) have changed. Not one. Furthermore, altering the Media volume (still on 1st click), has no effect other than to make it even louder. However, if I alter (or even touch) the Ringer or Notification volumes, the song volume drops to where it was.
I'm tired of changing my volume between every song. I'm willing to talk to whomever (Motorola, Pandora, Google, etc) in pursuit of a fix. How can I address this?
