I recently got a Lenovo IdeaPad G505S-01320 and i was surprised by how loud the sound is, especially when I'm using headphones. I generally keep my volume around 12 when I'm using the built-in speakers and 2 or 4 when I'm using headphones, because it turns uncomfortable otherwise. I thought this was really strange, but i looked around for a bit and didn't encounter anyone with the same issue. I'm assuming that means there is something wrong with my sound. This is what playback devices looks like:
I'd really like to lower the maximum volume because I'm very afraid of accidentally turning it up now.

Use the volume mixer to set the volume limit of each program to whatever % of the master volume you want. For example, at max master volume, set the program to 10% volume. As you increase or decrease the master volume, the volume increase when wearing headphones will be far smoother and you won't blow your ears out even if you max the master's volume since the volume is only 10% of max

Well, the best way is to buy a USB sound card then use that for your headphones since they're usually less powerful than on-board audio so the volume levels become acceptable.
