Sound Media volume too low

    Hi guys

    After having the OnePlus 1 and OnePlus 5, I bought the OnePlus 6.
    I noticed the media sound is 20-30% lower, especially when connecting an AUX cable or headphones (on speaker as well, but I almost never use it).

    When I listen to Spotify, Youtube, VLC player, ... it's not quite enough on 100% with my headphones anymore, especially in a plane or when I'm biking (I'm flying basically every week, so it's quite annoying).

    However in for example Waze, it's fine. So when I have Spotify and Waze on together in my car (with AUX cable), I have to disable the sound in Waze because it's way too loud when I put my speakers to maximum (which is needed to have sufficient volume in Spotify). It's now on 30, while with the Oneplus 1 or 5, it was already good on +-18 (so it's quite a big difference).

    I already tried in 5.1.7 and 5.1.8 but issue still persists. I tried playing with the headphone EQ and some other settings like the volume normalizer in Spotify but it doesn't help a lot. I don't want to root my phone since some payment apps and flight entertainment apps don't work anymore then. I tried with a different OnePlus 6 and it was the same. Any idea's ?

    Philips SHX20, same as with OnePlus 1 and 5. But it's not only with earphones, also with other speakers and in my car.

    Currently I am using rock zircon and asus bundled earphones and I am not facing these issues.Try other earphones are see if it solves your issue.

    Hi NaughtyTouch

    Thanks, but I can't see pages 3 until 6, I get a 403 Forbidden error.

    Would you mind sharing the post please ?

    Thanks a lot.



    I'm using 'Precise Volume' app now which boosts the volume a little bit without needing root access.

    It's not as loud as I would like it, but it's acceptable already.

    Again I have not tried this myself. Someone mentioned that the changed values will reset to after reboot.

    Thanks, but I guess there's no way to do this without rooting your device right ?

    Unfortunately all of my online banking apps are developed to stop working on a rooted device

    I highly recommend not tinkering with root files if you have no idea what you're doing. No one will save you if you manage to brick your phone. There's an APK inside Magisk Manager you can download to get the same thing called "ViPER4Android FX".

    After playing around in ViPER4Android FX in the headset tab I was able to solve my problem.

    Thanks again Kytharsis! :)

    Hi, I'm having the same volume issues with my Nord that I have for 2 days. Really annoying. I now have ordered an original OnePlus USB-C/jack plug, which could solve the problem perhaps, but I doubt it. When not I will send my phone (which is very nice etc) back to the store. I'm not the technical guy who's going to reboot etc, so if anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.
