How would you respond if we were to ask you how important volume is for your Android device? You’d probably respond in a matter of seconds because a device’s volume is absolutely important to many. If you’re not happy with your current volume and don’t have a high-end speaker, how would you improve your device’s sound quality to its full potential? Here’s what you can do to achieve the best sound quality on your phone.
1. Clean the Dust from Your External Speakers
If you want to improve the sound quality of your Android device, you should first clean the external speakers. If you’ve noticed a gradual decrease in volume over the past few weeks, it’s likely that the external speakers on your smartphone have become clogged with dust. A light cleaning would be beneficial in removing dust. You can clean the external speakers by blowing some air into them, but a better option would be to use a brush that is both clean and light.
2. Modify the Sound Effects and Other Settings
Many Android smartphones include settings that allow the user to improve the sound quality of the device. Again, the sound settings differ from device to device. In this post, we’ll explain different ways to improve a Samsung phone’s audio quality.
1. Navigate to Settings.
2. Select Sounds and Vibration.
3. Scroll down and press Advanced sound settings.
4. Select Sound quality and effects from the menu.
You can now adjust the settings in accordance with your individual preferences. You may, for instance, make adjustments to the equalizer, raise or lower the volume of the bass or treble, and even improve the sound quality.
3. Audio or Media Player Apps on Your Device
It is quite possible that you are using an application for playing audio or music on your Android device rather than the built-in player that comes with the operating system. These apps may change the volume of your Android device not only when they’re running in the foreground but also when they’re running in the background. Try disabling or uninstalling one or all of these apps and see if the sound quality improves.
4. Purchase a Portable DAC
You may have a fine set of corded headphones from the good old days, but when you plug them into your phone, the sound reduces. That’s why you should invest in a portable DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter).
A compromise in volume and quality is unavoidable when considering factors like portability, energy efficiency, and the need to output multiple different types of sound. There are many different kinds of external DACs, but they all do the same thing: they improve the quality of the sound coming from your phone so that it sounds more like what the artists have intended. This is especially noticeable with high-impedance headphones.
5. Install a New Music Player or Sound Booster App
Still trying to figure out how to improve the quality of the sound on Android. Enhance the experience with a sound booster or a music player application. This is an extension of the previous point mentioned a few paragraphs above. Even though it is a high-end device, the volume on your Android smartphone might not be able to live up to the standards you have set for it. There are numerous excellent music players and sound booster apps available. With these, you get more control over audio, an ocean of presets, the ability to boost bass according to your taste, and the power to force your external speakers to output sound beyond their capabilities.
6. Purchase a Better Pair of Headphones
Although it may come to you as a shock, the earbuds that come with your smartphone are terrible. Even the most reputable manufacturers of smartphones will look for ways to reduce costs wherever they can, and one of the simplest ways to accomplish this is by including audio equipment that is not in line with industry standards.
Replacing those low-quality earphones is one of the easiest ways to improve the sound quality of your smartphone. Whether it’s a simple replacement set of in-ear buds or something a little more complicated, you won’t have to pay much attention to notice the difference.
There are many ways to improve the sound quality of your Android phone. You could buy a high-quality portable speaker or make sure your phone case isn’t blocking your speaker. However, the preceding methods and means are more countered on how you can get the most out of your Android device’s volume using the device itself; and how you can improve your volume by changing the settings.
