Set headphone specific volume level

Jul 12, 2007 - 1 Comment

I don’t know about anyone else, but I always have a very different volume level for my headphones than for my speakers, and if you’re anything like me than this tip is great news. You can actually set headphone-specific volume levels on your Mac, so you won’t have to be constantly toying with the volume levels. No more embarrassing moments where your headphones accidentally get pulled from your Mac in a quiet library, and you proceed to blast music for all to hear. Check out the link below for a video on how to set this up, it’s very easy to follow and implement:
