If you want it louder, then you must have badly damaged ears.
Loudness =/= clarity. Loudness is volume. Volume should be more than extreme on the A40s if you adjust your settings properly. Now if you're just unhappy with the A40's sound quality, that's more understandable than the A40 not getting loud enough.
I have adjusted the chat/game volume many times. I have tried all the way, half and so on and still no positive outcome. I believe I will just end up being happy if I look into other options.
I do have damaged ears from the service however my wife even states it doesn't get that loud. I know one issue is the fact that the playstation volume in the setting does not allow you to store it to 100 percent it drops to 50 as soon as you leave.
On a side note I have owned many speakers such as definitive technology, bowers, Kef, with other high end supporting equipment in my time however I do not consider myself an audiophile.
I appreciate the help however after researching further I am just going to get a sound card if I do not keep the mix amp and get a pair like the hd650 or maybe the older dt990 possibly. I will have to decide soon what to do with 500?hmmm
