A reader has posted information and a how-to for removing the volume cap on iPods sold in Europe. EU iPods have a volume cap due to health regulations, therefore having significantly lower decibels than U.S. versions. It’s been a sore spot for many EU iPod owners and has been discussed at length in our forums.

The thing I don’t understand is that this is NOT EU law, it’s French law. Why does the rest of Europe have to get ######-up volume limits on iPods because of the French? That’s clearly Apple’s problem and not the EU’s…
