I have a newer model of an Asus Eee Pc Netbook which I have maxed out as far as internal hardware goes. I have 2.1 Surround sound logitech speakers with a sub, which when on full blast can shake my room at the very least, but when I plug headphones into the auxilery jack for the speakers, or even into the laptop's audio port at that, I can't get very loud sound, it's a little louder than normal voice and it's quite annoying and pathetic. I've read a little bit about this problem and have found that that's just the way it goes, especially with netbooks; but i'm curious is there any other sollution other than external sound cards to this problem? I'm guessing I need to get higher quality headphones with a built in volume dongle so I'm not limmited to software side volume controls. Am I right, or is there some kind of obvious trick I'm ignoring?

Tyvm for all replies!

higher quality headphones with a built in volume dongle

It will only go as high as the signal being sent is telling it to
It's just a volume control in the headset, not an amplifier

Tyvm! That's what I was kind of thinking, I'll just go get some decent headphones.
