As you listen to different types of music on your iPod, you may notice that the volume changes significantly from song to song. If the default volume level on your iPod is too low or too loud for you, there are several ways to adjust the volume, as well as a volume limit you can set to prevent temporary hearing damage due to high sound levels. Once set, the volume limit will not let songs go higher than your settings until you adjust the settings.
