All the above solutions are great, but I feel that mine is probably the best
of all. I simply connected another amplifier to the speaker socket of my
Sound Blaster card ensuring that the volume control (mechanical) was within
quick easy reach.

IPhone tends to be quiet, but the .WAV sounds from Windows will blow the wax
out of the other ear, unless you can fix the sound level QUICKLY!

Just my 2 1/2 cents worth!
