I've looked through the archives and found similar questions but not exactly the same as my problem. I have the 3G and the volume on phone calls, the ringer, reminders, etc. seems fine. But the volume on my iPod is super low. I have the volume in settings all the way up and then the volume on my iPod all the way up also, and it's still hard for me to hear if it's not completely quiet outside. I work in the city and normal city traffic basically drowns out my volume at full blast. Anyone else having this problem? I'm still using the Apple headphones that came with it, could that be the problem? I know noise canceling headphones would help, but was just wondering if there's anything else I could do.
