A Comprehensive Guide to Making Spotify Louder

Welcome to our in-depth guide designed to enhance your auditory experience on Spotify! There's no denying the role that Spotify plays in our daily lives - from setting the tone for our morning routines, to soundtracking our commutes, to fostering the ambiance for our late-night study sessions.

However, we've all had moments where we wished the volume could go just a notch higher, to fully immerse ourselves in the rhythm and beats of our favorite tunes.

Now, let's dive into the world of sound and discover how to make your Spotify sound louder!

Please note that it's essential to protect your hearing when increasing the volume. Always listen at a safe level to prevent hearing damage.

1.Adjust the volume on your device

Start by making sure your device's volume is at the maximum level. This includes both the media volume and the system volume.

2.Adjust the volume in the Spotify app

Make sure that the volume slider within the Spotify app is also at the maximum. You'll usually find this at the bottom of the screen while playing a song.

3.Equalizer settings

Many smartphones and other devices have built-in equalizer settings that can affect the volume and sound quality.

You can often increase the volume or the perception of volume by adjusting these settings.

  • On Android: Go to Settings > Sound & Vibration > Advanced sound settings > Sound quality and effects.
  • On iOS: Go to Settings > Music > EQ.

Experiment with different presets to see if any of them increase the volume. Some EQ settings can boost certain frequencies, giving the perception of increased volume.

4.Use Spotify's built-in equalizer

Spotify also has an equalizer that you can adjust.

    • Go to Your Library on the Spotify app.
    • Tap on the cogwheel or gear icon in the upper right corner to access Settings.
    • Scroll down and tap on Equalizer under the Music Quality section.

Try adjusting the various frequency bands. You can raise the sliders to boost certain frequencies, which might make the music seem louder.

5.Change the Spotify sound quality

Spotify offers different sound qualities for streaming, and higher quality can sometimes seem louder because of increased audio detail.

    • Tap on the cogwheel or gear icon to access Settings.
    • Under Music Quality, adjust the streaming quality to the highest available option.

6.Disable normalization

Spotify uses volume normalization to ensure all songs play back at approximately the same volume. However, this could sometimes make songs sound quieter than they could be.

    • In Spotify, go to Your Library.
    • Tap on the cogwheel or gear icon to access Settings.
    • Scroll down to the Playback section.

Find the "Normalize volume" setting and toggle it off.

7.Adjust Playback Volume Level on Spotify:

Spotify offers an option to adjust the volume level of playback. This feature, known as volume leveling, is designed to provide a consistent volume across all songs, but it can affect the overall loudness.

Here is how you can adjust it:

  1. In the Spotify app, go to "Your Library."
  2. Tap on the gear icon in the upper-right corner to access the "Settings."
  3. Scroll down and tap on "Playback."
  4. Look for the "Volume Level" option.
    • This setting can usually be found towards the end of the list, below the "Gapless Playback" option.
  5. You'll find four options: "Quiet," "Normal," "Loud," and "Off."
    • "Quiet" helps preserve dynamics but can result in quieter music.
    • "Normal" is the default option that provides a balance between preserving dynamics and loudness.
    • "Loud" optimizes for loudness and can make the music sound louder, but it may reduce dynamics.
    • "Off" disables volume leveling. With this option, some songs may sound louder than others.
  6. Try changing this setting to "Loud" or "Off" to see if the music sounds louder.

Please note that the "Loud" setting can sometimes lead to distortion in the music, especially with cheaper earphones or speakers. Always listen at a safe level to avoid damaging your hearing.

8.Clean Your Speakers

One often overlooked aspect that could affect the volume of your audio is the cleanliness of your speakers.

Over time, dust and dirt can accumulate in your speaker grilles, reducing the volume and quality of sound. Here's how you can clean them:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Use a soft, dry toothbrush or canned air to gently clean the speaker grilles of your device. This can dislodge dust and other small particles that could be muffling the sound.
  2. Dealing with Stubborn Dirt: If the dust is caked on and can't be removed by brushing, you might need a more thorough cleaning method. However, this can be risky, so it's generally recommended to take your device to a professional.
  3. Water in the Speakers: If you accidentally get water inside your phone speakers, do not try to clean it with a cloth or tissue as it might push the water further inside. Instead, you can use our free web app at Cleanspeakers.com.
    • Visit the website and click on the 'Start Cleaning' button.
    • The app will generate a specific sound that can help to dislodge the water from your speakers.

Always remember to be gentle while cleaning your device, and if in doubt, it's better to consult with a professional rather than risk causing damage.

By maintaining your device and its speakers, you can help ensure the best possible volume and sound quality from your Spotify streams.
