Volume limit prevents app from getting louder

Got the PRO app, because this is exactly what I was looking for. A music alarm that starts a playlist (random play) in the morning slowly increasing the volume from 0% to 100%.

9/10 times this works flawlessly as expected, but sometimes the volume will not get pass 60% or so. When I change the volume one up, I can see the next step is a red one, so I got the suspicion Apple enforces a volume limit here, since I'm using the headphone jack and it believes me to wear in-ears.

I came across the setting "Settings" > "Music" > "Volume Limit" and it's off! So this cannot be it. What else could cause this issue? It seems to happen only sometimes, so that's why it might be hard to reproduce.

I have an iPhone 6S Plus and this issue caused me to wake up too early two times since I'm using the app, so far.

For now my solution will be to increase the speaker volume and configure the app to go only to 60% max, but this is cumbersome for me, because I need to be aware to change the speaker volume every evening or I will not wake up on the next morning.

Best regards,
