You know, sometimes my mp3 files can be recorded at a high gain that causes
clipping. There are a number of utilities to normalize mp3 files.

Good point. If you have a volume control on the headphones (I don't like
this "feature" at all on phones, personally) you should set the volume all
the way up and then adjust the source to the loudest you will be playing it.
Then adjust your headphone volume as you wish and you will never hear this

Those of us with different headphones than Joaquim might not be able to get
full volume if something in rockbox were changed, and we would all come and
TP Joaquim's house. :) (kidding, really)
