Headphones have low volume on Pixel 3 phone compared to computer?
I'm using a headphone jack adapter to use my new ATH-M50x heaphones on my Pixel 3
The volume is really low. When I play it on my computer, which of course doesn't need a headphone jack adapter, it sounds great.
I'm using an Apple headphone jack adapter which was pretty cheap. Is the headphone jack adapter the issue here?
If I get a different adapter, can I listen to music on my Pixel with my new headphones with the same high volume and quality that I get when I use the headphones on my computer? Or is the Pixel not capable of that because it doesn't have a headphone jack?

I think so. I also have a pixel phone and the adapter I use plays even louder than when the ear buds I use are plugged into the computer...Get an adapter that advertises as being comparable with your Pixel phone also get one that advertised as Hi-Res with an above average DAC resolution...The brand I bought was Syihlon....

Your computer has its own amplifier. It takes line level signals and amplifies it to play through its speakers. Your Pixel phone has a built-in amplifier too, but it is designed to provide just enough power to drive ear buds, not a regular pair of headphones. You can either connect your pixel 3 to a receiver or amplifier in your home stereo and then your headphone to the receiver or amplifier, ro you can connect a pair of ear buds to the Pixel 3.

If you're not loud enough then your phone isn't providing enough power to drive the speakers for those headphones. You would need a headphone amp in between your phone and the headphones to provide that needed boost. Something like this would be small and portable enough to take with you: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C7FQZRW
The other options would be to get a pair of headphones with less impedance or that are wireless and therefore would have their own power source.
