Hey there,
The issue has already been reported. I'll suggest you to wait for the next update with patience, it may get a fix there.
Regards

Are you confident that this will be fixed? This phone was released in July on June update I think and so and has had 3 monthly updates so far but still has the issue.

Disappointed as headphones volume issue not fixed in October update on Mi A3....

Sucks but as I expected. I can't see this getting a fix so I stuck with my old Mi A2 Lite as that will get 10 and security updates for a good while longer.

Xiaomi phones not advertised with an additional physical audio enhancement will have weak amplifier. In ear (IEM) microphone recommendations as of my testing (Pocophone F1 as an example) is around 16 to 28 ohm. Over ear Headphones have bigger diaphragm compared to IEMs so they will have weaker volume at the same volume setting. So you might need a headphones lower than 15 ohms (if there exist) for proper volume.

Low volume means that you have an audio accessory, in your case a headphone with higher impedance (measured in ohms) than what the phone amplifier can drive. You can test it by trying some earphones or IEM with impedances within an approximate 16 to 28 ohms. This is based on my own test, for reference, here are my earphones and headphone used for my own testing:

Hmmmm. My Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite has perfectly decent headphone volume output. I can't recall them marketing it or the Redmi 6 Pro as having a specific amplifier or audio components. The Mi A3 is just a camera centric budget device (CC9e) that skimps on the quality of audio over the headphone output is all.

This is from the GSM Arena review:-
'Then things got worse as we plugged in our standard headphones. Volume plummeted to way below average, frequency response got shaky, while stereo crosstalk rose an average amount. We also recorded some intermodulation distortion adding up to a performance to forget.'

In Mi A-series, it's the A1 having the best Audio via the headphone jack. Not all earphones/headphones are the same, you might just have a lower impedance headphones for your A2 lite.

Tested with same headphones so....
