My pixel buds series A are really quiet! I've reset Bluetooth, forgot the device, factory reset buds several times. I can still hear the music, but I'm disappointed by how quiet they are  I doubt I'll be able to hear through them in loud environments. They are only usable at maximum volume, and just barely

Have you turned on Adaptive Sound?

I have tried the earbuds with adaptive sound on and off. It has no effect on the maximum volume output and it doesn't make it any louder, but I'm usually in quieter environments

Hi Paul,
 
What phone are you using? Can you test your Pixel Buds with another device to see if that makes a difference?
 
For whatever it's worth, my Pixel Buds A-series get plenty loud for me - raising my Pixel 5's media volume above about 60% has me wincing. They definitely shouldn't be difficult to hear.
 
Cheers,
John

Hi Leo,
 
I'm glad you got it sorted! 
 
Interestingly, that description of Dual Audio / Media Volume Sync sounds like it does the same thing as the "Disable Absolute Volume" developer options - separates the phone and accessory volumes so they can be adjusted independently. Of course that doesn't work with the A-series Buds since they don't have any built-in volume controls, so you get stuck with an artificially-limited maximum volume level.
 
Thanks for letting us know where to adjust that. I'll try to remember that if anyone else runs into a similar issue on a Samsung phone.
 
Cheers,
John
