Does anyone have any ways to make earphones louder?

    Just push them in your ears more. But seriously, I'm sure there's an app for that.

    An active preamp is not something an app will ever be able to achieve. This is an example of a quality active preamp:

    DarkVoice 336SE Headphone Tube Amplifier

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...N=B00CF9JON8&linkCode=shr&tag=shopfaster0c-20

    Here's a cheaper one for the audiophile on a budget:

    Bravo Audio V2 Class A 12AU7 Tube Multi-Hybrid Headphone Amplifier

    http://www.amazon.com/Bravo-Audio-V...m_sbs_e_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0FZVTR8R2ESHJE8KJYKP

    These will boost your dB and add warmth to the mix.

    What music player do you use on your OPO? If it's not the stock player, some have built in EQ/preamp and volume control settings.

    Yes, there are two files in there, for Gingerbread and 4.x and above, choose the 4.x

    The impedance of your earphones are not matched to your opo's output.You will never be able to have a nice clean signal.If you put some kind of booster software, it will be louder but distorted.
    You can use a external preamp like the FIOO E06 .You will get a loud and clean signal.

    I use Power Amp. It has a few settings that work differently on different phones. Not sure about the built in app. Maybe it's that AudioFX thing on OPO? Do you have it enabled?

    Longshot maybe, but try rebooting after enabling/disabling audioFX. Mine messed up a couple times and would get stuck on or off and only a reboot would fix it.

    No need to use this bogus apps, there's a xml file. Can't remember the name now, you can change the actual values in there if you're rooted. And I've experienced this too with some headphones, some just seem to require extra power.

    Preamps are hardware not software.
