if you're talking about playing back music, then
  • some media players allow you to take the levels higher or have an equaliser with a 'pre-amp' or similar - a great example is winamp

  • ...or you could get better/louder speakers.

  • ...or the music file may have been recorded at a low level to begin with.

All sound in general would be good, but audio will suffice if it's all I can get >_<!

You could try VLC player for playing the audio files. This player has settings in the options to increase the volume level over and above 100%. But you should be careful in increasing the volume too much as this may damage the speakers.

One of the best method would be to have hi-powered speakers with built-in volume control.

Go to the Windows Speaker Properties and enable Loudness Equalization.
You can also access it from the VIA or Realtek software, if you installed the one for your board.

I registered to this site just to say THANK YOU to you!!!

This has been bugging me for months, whenever I watched MLB.TV or listen to XM Online, sound was WAY too low in my earbuds. Now it's okay thanks to this tip!!!

Sometimes even with the volume in the highest level, it still sounds very slight. In this case, I usually increase the sound volume by Faasoft Volume Booster. With it, you can adjust audio or video volume as your desire.
