Baofeng UV-3R, 3R+
Audio Level Modification
Modification requires a Steady Hand
but well worth the effort.
One common concern is the loud audio level of the UV-3R(+)

Modification is best shown with this YouTube video by VE2CUY

Although the video shows a 47k resistor, I personally used a 33k to cut the volume back just a bit more.  

This shows the location of the 47k / 33k resistor
and the antenna connection.
Note1: When taking out the 4 screws holding the main unit to the case, the bottom 2 screws are very small Torx, not Phillips.

Note 2: Have some Solder Wick braid on hand to clear out the hole on the PC board for the antenna connection.
