    When I listen to music on my 6s (using Apple Music) different songs play at different volumes... Sometimes they're super low and I have to crank up the volume, but then the next song will be blaring and I'll have to turn it down a lot. Is there any setting that would level out the difference between sound levels in songs?

    I notice this all the time and I believe the music setting shown in the included screenshot is supposed to remedy the problem but it still seems like I notice it even with sound check enabled

    Yes! That's what I originally thought that setting was for... But even after enabling it, the problem still continues.

    It's called replay gain (volume leveling), and iOS does a very poor job of this. We run all of our mp3's through Foobar (free software) and set the replay gain with that first before using them with media streaming software like Sonos (also, no replay gain), or in this case using them on the iPhone.

    Sounds very confusing! Guessing there's no simple fix for this problem then?

    Not unless Apple steps up and adds a better option for replay gain.
