Raise the Max Volume higher in xp?

Last Modified: 2013-12-07
For every computer I use, I find the maximum volume isn't loud enough for my headphones.  How can I make it louder than it normally would be at max?

Note that the master volume is all the way up,
the wav volume is all the way up,
I've plugged the headphones both directly into the back of the computer, as well as through a headphone jack on speakers,
I've tried a number of different headphones (they're all too quiet)
And I've tried changing the sound-setup to different things like "stereo speakers" or "surround sound".
Also, this is on a desktop running xp media center edition, this computer is a 6 month old 1000$ comp from Ibuypower.

I'm hoping for something like a registry edit, or a program which can boost my volume.
