If you are rooted, you can try one of the following 1.NoSafeVolumeWarning in Xposed Framework 2 .Media Tweak Settings in Gravity Box
The problem with understanding any physical buttons on an Android, is that they are extremely hardware dependent. Usually they're connected to some GPIO port on either the application processor (AP) or cellular processor (CP/modem), and on some devices (MTK,Qualcomm) these are combined in a SoC. In other devices, there is a separate touch screen MCU, that ...
Once you are rooted, goto settings/sounds/volumes. Unchecked the safe headphone volume box and agree to warning about potential damage to your ears. That's what I did on my Nexus 7 w/4.4.4 ROM.
Some versions of CyanogenMod have the “Volume rocker” option in Settings → Display; if this option is selected, volume buttons will wake up the phone. There are also other ways to get this behavior (e.g., the GravityBox module for Xposed has the “Volume rocker wake” option in the “Navigation keys actions” screen).
The only way I'm aware of to set media volume outside of an app is to go into the Settings. Specifically, Settings → Sound & notification should give you separate sliders for each of the available volume channels. You'll want to turn down the top one ("Media volume"). On some custom ROMs it may be possible to do this slightly differently. Older versions ...
On many devices there is a setting that can control this. It is also included in many custom ROMs. In Settings > Sounds there should be an option for Increasing ring volume If you turn this off, the ringtone will start at the volume you have set, rather than starting at a lower volume and increasing over the duration of the ringtone.
A root tweak is one option but if you don't want to do this, SoundHUD (avaliable here) will bring more traditional volume controls back to Lollipop. The app has lots of configuration options too.
The problem was caused by an app that I installed for allowing the company I work for to page me. This proprietary app had a bug that caused it to drop the in-call volume during a call; Updating the app fixed the problem.
An option for you might be the Silent Mode Widget. It puts a widget on your homescreen to silence / restore your volume settings with a single tap. (I have not tried this app. There also appear to be several other similar apps that you might try instead.)
There are several ways to get your volume levels back. Personally I like to use the IFTTT app to set my ringer volume to maximum when I connect to my home WiFi. (recipe) If you want to fix your volume at a specific time, say, you can create a new recipe using the Date & Time Channel.
I know this is a really old thread, but I just bought a bluetooth speaker - a CANZ speaker. It sounds great, capturing all wavelength for pure beats, vocal and instrument separation but it is LOUD - on 1. I went into the standard media player and found the settings and tapped advanced. I was able to lower the whole EQ band by band and found a great volume. ...
