How can I lower the volume even further on my iPod Touch?

I know you’ll think I’m crazy or stupid as many people turn their iPods all the way up, but my ears are very sensitive. So I got these beautiful new headphones and plugged them into my iPod Touch. But I found that it boosts the volume too much. I’ve tried lowering the volume on my iPod all the way down, but it’s still too loud. My ears start hurting after about 30 seconds of listening. Anybody have a solution?

    A. Try using an equalizer that decreases the volume...

    (setting a customized equalizer from itune for a song doesnt work, still u can try)

    B. Decrease the volume of tracks in I tune or any other software.

    for i tune :

    music>get info > volume adjustment

    -Open itune and Make sure you are in the music tab. There are a few tabs, music, video, shows etc.

    -Click on the song you need to change the volume. It should be highlighted in a blue color.
    -For all songs click on one song then click "CTRL + A"!

    Now a little menu pops up. Click on "Get Info". Now click on the "options" tab.

    You will see where it says "Volume Adjustment". Slide the slider up to increase the volume, or down to lower the volume.

    You can also use softwares like windows movie maker total video converter etc to decrease the volume.

    Let the ipod be loud, keep the tracks calm :D

    You should had mentioned that your ipod was jailbroken

    but you could see if raising the maximum volume (in SystemSoundMaximumVolume.plist) combined with lowering the volumeMultiplier (in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.celestial.plist) would do the trick

    2). Copy the com.apple.celestial.plist file to /var/root/Library/Preferences (Delete the two files FIRST don’t just copy them onto the phone and select the option of overwrite.)
    3). Copy the SystemSoundMaximumVolume.plist file to /System/Library/Frameworks/Celestial.framework/
    4). Goto Settings > iPod > (switch off: Sound Check)
    5). Reboot your ipod.

    If you do not notice a difference try:

    1). Download

    put it into: private/var/preferences

    2.) Reboot

      ha14's answer wasn't helpful. I've already tried limiting the volume and turning the iPod Touch volume all the way down didn't work either, it was still too loud. Is there a way by editing a plist on my iPod (it's jailbroken) or would I have to get a little volume button that you plug into your iPod?

    This may depend on the headphones you attach to the iPod. If your headphones are not-standard headphones and you want to keep them, you could buy a volume attenuator for a few buck.
