" ...  I think it's a great speaker. ... Great sound, just enough volume for me, and well built. ... I set the volume at 100% on my phone and the speakers (you can set each speaker to whatever volume you want using the speakers volume control), and just used the volume control on the FiiO A3. ... 3-4 is a nice low volume with rich sound with the bass boost turned on on the amp (you can still hear someone talking normal). ... 6.5-7.5 they are very loud, but they still sound excellent. ... Just remember where you place the speaker in your room can make a huge difference on how it sounds.  ...  "
