It's only partially relevant what level you have your volume at. It depends on the db of the source material. Some MP3s could be 80db, and another 100db ... when your volume is at 30 on your system one source can sound really loud and another barely a whisper.
I use Mp3 in the example above, but you can interchange that with FM radio, MP3, aux audio jack, etc.
