A device is described that determines when an audio system has been connected via an audio output port of the device, and in response automatically determines a volume level to use for outputting requested audio based on context of the device, such as context that indicates a type of audio system having been connected. For example, the type of audio system may be headphones or an external speaker or other playback system. The device adjusts its volume level settings to the determined level so as to output the audio in accordance with the context.
