Welcome to ABi

The volume limit in the NWZ-E474 is supposed to be warning, not a cap on the volume according to the manual http://docs.esupport.sony.com/portab.../01/01/01.html. One member from the UK has said they don't even get a warning. With a warning that can be easily dismissed I haven't seen anyone interested in entering the service menu.

The thought has been that Sony was losing sales due to implementing a cap is a way that no one else did. Every other maker made it possible to get around the cap during a firmware update. The default if you picked the EU as your region on a player like a Cowon or a sandisk capped the volume. Since it's possible to pick another region and still use the language you prefer that's what people do to not have their volume capped.
