    If these are external speakers do they have their own volume control?

    I know of no way to boost the default maximum but purchasing eternal speakers is a option.

    I'm in an environment where external speakers don't work, but headsets do. I'm actually using a headset right now and at the highest volume setting it has incremental improvement over the internal speakers, but still not at the level I'd like. I'm hoping there's a software solution that can boost the volume further.

    VLC lets you raise the volume big time over windows, just click on it`s window when it`s open and use your mouse wheel
