Top 5 Ways To Boost Your Earphones Sound
1. Check the Volume of Your Earphones
Most budget earphones offer low loudness levels. If a device’s volume is increased to the maximum possible level, and you’re still facing problems listening to it. The first thing to do is, verify the functionality of the volume button on the earphones and ensure that it is set to the highest level. With the volume control buttons, you can easily adjust the audio output.
2. Use Higher Quality Music Streaming Service
Music streaming services such as Gaana, Saavn, and Spotify are the best destinations to listen to loud and crisp music. Your earphones are not responsible for low loudness levels if the audio source itself isn’t loud enough. Therefore, set the quality to the maximum possible level so that you can get the best output from your earphones.
In case you prefer to listen to downloaded music, make sure that the audio file is downloaded from a reliable source and is of high bit-rate so that there is no compromise over the audio experience.
3. Using Developer options
This technique is very effective while using a Bluetooth headset. Below is a guide about how to make your headsets sound louder while they are paired with an Android phone.
Step 1: Go to your device’s system settings and click on “About Phone”
Step 2: Now, follow the given steps to enable Developer Options Settings > System > About Phone > Build Number.
Step 3: Tap on the “Build Number” a number of times until you are notified that the “Developer Options” have been enabled.
Step 4: Open the Settings app again on your smartphone, and search for Developer options. Scroll down the list that occurs and head towards the developer’s options.
Use the toggle to turn off “Disable Absolute Volume“. This will differentiate the volume of your earphones from the volume of your system. You can now boost both the volumes separately for the required media.

4. Using 3rd Party Applications to Boost Loudness
With Android phones, trying to make our headsets louder might prove to be a little hard. If every other method fails, you can try using volume or equalizer applications. These apps can efficiently bypass the watchful restriction that smartphone manufacturers put in a bid to restrict your mobile device’s audio level.
App 1: Volume Booster GOODEV
Volume Booster GOODEV is an easy to use application, which uses its unique algorithms to boost the loudness of your earphones. Here’s how you can use it:
Step 1: Download the application from Google Play Store, or simply click here.
Step 2: After installation, open the app and click on ‘Ok’ when a warning pops up.
Step 3: Slide the bar to up to 60%, so that the volume gets boosted to the maximum possible level.
Step 4: You can also access the additional features of the app through the settings option available in the corner.
App 2: Volume Plus
Volume Plus is very similar to the previous application but has a different UI and features. Here’s how you can use it:
Step 1: Search for Volume Plus on Google Play Store, and download the app or simply click here.
Step 2: Launch the Settings and modify the settings on the application to make your headsets louder.
Step 3: Move volume and loudness sliders to the right side to increase the volume. Sliders allow you to customize the alert system, buzzer, voice call, and media intensity individually.
Although volume apps operate excellently to make your headsets louder, they can potentially damage the earphones in some cases. Thus, it is advisable not to attempt using the highest sound level.
5. Clean Your Earphones
Earphones, especially the ones with silicon tips, tend to gather dust particles around the buds area and on the earphones mesh on the inside. This might seem like a minor issue, but it can prove to be very helpful to increase the quality as well as loudness of the earphones.
You don’t need to perform any complicated tasks to clean them. Rather, earphones can be cleaned by simply blowing some air through the sound vents, or by using earbuds. Also, if you are using wired earphones, ensure that the 3.5mm metal end of the wire is clean and isn’t wet, failing which, it can even cause damage to your smartphone.

6. Use DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter)
This method is a little expensive to execute but provides an excellent end output that improves the quality of audio by leaps and bounds. A DAC simply converts a digital signal into an analog one so that your earphones can then create sound.
Much like headphone amplifiers, DACs came about as a response to poor audio quality, and have now become quite popular among the masses who consume a lot of audio-based content on the internet. Brands such as FiiO are pioneers in creating DAC for smartphones and are available on Amazon.
7. Use High-Quality Earphones
Purchasing a pair of expensive earphones might seem to be a waste of money, but it can be worth it if you are an audiophile. In-ear earphones and over-the ear headphones are available at prices as low as Rs. 200,and go all the way up to Rs. 180,000 for premium products such as the Sennheiser HD 820.
Brands such as Sennheiser and JBL have brought revolutionary advancements in their audio products, which provide excellent quality and accuracy in their audio output. If your budget doesn’t allow you to buy expensive headsets, prefer buying a pair of wired earphones that provide more flexibility and comfort than what cheap TWS offer.

In most instances, the reality is that people appear to use their earphones louder than they otherwise should be. It’s essential to realize that listening to extremely loud music can cause major harm to one’s hearing. The advisable sensory hearing range lies around 85 dB for a maximum of 8 hours everyday. Though it is outside the spectrum of most headsets, the reality is even with lower dB levels; you may experience hearing disabilities if you listen to loud music for long periods of time.
