iOS audio volume low

I’m developing an app with Ionic 2 RC0. Overall it’s working really well but I have one issue that I cannot seem to fix.

I’ve created an audio player component (pure HTML5) and this plays mp3/oggs correctly on all platforms that I’ve tested (Chrome, Android, iOS), but on iOS the volume of the audio is really low, while the system volume is at 100%.

This happens on iPhone 4, 5 and 6. I also tried playing videos (both local and embedded from youtube), which both work but there the volume is also very low, so it seems iOS is somehow limiting the overall audio volume of the app. Is there any way I can circumvent this?


I’m seeing the same issue. Did you ever figure it out?
