The sound is one of the most important features of any Smartphone or tablet, so it is vital that the sound is loud enough and of high quality. In this article, we will talk about how to adjust the volume on your Android device, and also improve the quality of the sound.
Of course we are not going to talk about a professional sound setting, however, we will try to address the necessary foundations.
The sound quality can be divided into several basic parameters:
We will discuss each of these parameters in more detail. Let’s start with the latter.
A number of noises on Android directly depends on the hardware of your device, or more precisely on the audio chip and sound output system, whether it’s speaker, headphones or external speaker. The devices of the upper price segment usually have high-quality audio chips with excellent sound, and when the cost of the device flows, the quality of audio chip is normally also low, with rare exceptions. It is fair to say the same about the external dynamic, therefore, it is practically impossible to lower a number of noises on a properly configured device.
And that means we should pay more attention to the other two sound parameters on Android.
The second indicator could be the most subjective, so most likely you will need to configure the sound. Very often, firmware for Android has already installed equalizers, which helps you configure the sound on your Android device. But we will consider the universal way – a special application Viper4android that has already perfectly recommended itself among thousands of users. Its only shortcoming is the requirement to have Root rights that allow modifying system files.
Let’s analyze this program in detail and learn how to configure the sound quality on your Android device. First of all, you should download Viper4android and install it on your Android device. Next, you should do the following steps:
Viper4android allows you to achieve incredibly juicy and quality sound, even at a low initial potential of your Android device.
We will consider the best configuration options available for this multifunctional application.
In the program, press the Menu button, then “Interface”, and choose “Expert”. Now the whole audio settings functionality in the application is available to you.
In addition, the program provides you the opportunity to install the ready driver settings from such well-known enhancers as Beats Audio, iPod, Sony Ericsson and others. To do this, scroll down to Convolver, turn it on and select “Impulse”, initially there will be nothing, of course, but you can download the appropriate configuration file (.irs) from this link and install it in the folder ViPER4Android/Kernel in the memory of your Android device. After that, you will be able to select the installed enhancer in “Impulse”. Next, configure all other settings to your liking to the best level.
If after all your numerous efforts, you still don’t think that the sound quality is improved, it may be a sign that, perhaps, there is a conflict with another program. Try to disable any other sound enhancers in your firmware, and also try to switch on the compatibility with other players in the program settings.
Finally, let’s move on to the most important question: How to increase and adjust the volume on your Android device? First of all, you need to understand, exactly which volume you would like to increase. You may want to increase the external speaker volume, in order to better hear the call or listen to music, the volume of the headphones or headset, the volume of conversational dynamics of your Android device in order to hear better when you are talking on the phone, or, maybe, the microphone volume of your Android device.
First of all, make sure that you have maximally increased the volume in the settings of your Android device. To do this, go to “Settings” ➨ “Sound” ➨ “Volume”. This menu allows you to set the volume of calls and SMS notifications, the alarm volume, as well as the volume of music and video.
It is very nice to listen to the music through a loud speaker, especially when it’s built into your smartphone or tablet, but in most cases, manufacturers of Android devices do not set the volume at the maximum level, therefore, you have various opportunities to increase the volume of your Android device. One of the ways to do this is through the Engineering mode. However, if you are afraid to click a wrong button, it is better to use a more secure method.
Unfortunately, not all smartphones can access the Engineering mode, therefore, this method is suitable for the devices based on the MediaTek processor, as well as some others. In order to enter the Engineering mode, you will need to enter the code through the Dialer, you can learn the codes in the table below.
If you have MTK chipset and Ruth rights installed on your device, you can download MobileUncle Tools application in the Play Market, which will greatly facilitate the process of setting up.
After entering the Engineering menu, you must find the Audio section, where everything is hidden:
Choose Normal Mode as the desired mode for configuration, the next step is to find the type of the device you wish to configure:
Most likely, you need the maximum level, which is 6. Change the value to the desired one, maximum, 255, however, I do not advise you to set the maximum level – it is possible that the sound quality will worsen and decrease service life of the dynamics will decrease, therefore, the optimal value is 220-240.
This way is more universal, you just need to download a special program to increase the volume of Android – Volume+ in the Play Market – and run it. Next, select the desired mode, as in the Engineering mode. Speaker is an external speaker, Headset – a headset, and Bluetooth is a wireless headset or speaker.
That’s all, just in a few minutes, you have increased the volume of your Android device to the desired level. If you still have any questions or you were not able to adjust the volume on your Android device, feel free to ask in the comments below!
