Nowadays, we are surrounded by music. Whether at the gym, at your office, or even while traveling, there is no escaping music. Wherever you go, you hear a familiar tune playing. Everyone loves music and prefers listening to a few tracks on their iPhone whenever they get the time. However, sometimes you cannot even hear the music being played.
While the speakers of your iPhone are quite loud, they are not built for music output. There are a few ways to make the music louder on your iPhone. For starters, you can use the volume buttons on the side of your device. To use advanced settings, you can also go to Settings > Sounds & Haptics and drag the slider under Ringers & Alerts or under Sound Effects.
If you want to make music louder on your iPhone without using the volume buttons, there are a few different ways to do it. This article will explain a few steps.
You can change your default music player by going to Settings > Music and selecting your preferred app. The new app should offer more control over audio levels.
You can also install an app that lets you tweak your phone’s audio settings. Some popular options are Equalizer Fx, Music Volume EQ, and Equalizer+, but many others are available in the App Store. Simply type “equalizer” into the search bar and browse through the results until you find one that suits your needs.
Alter The EQ Settings On Your iPhone
One way to make music louder on your iPhone is to change the equalizer settings. The equalizer allows you to adjust the volume of different frequencies, which can change the overall loudness of a song.
To turn on the equalizer:
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll down and tap Music.
- Tap EQ under ‘Playback.’
- Tap a preset or Custom EQ, then adjust the slider for each frequency range until it sounds best for you.
Don’t Reduce Loud Sounds
In your iPhone settings under music, there is an option to turn on “Sound Check” and “Volume Limit.”
You should turn both of these off. Sound check will lower all your songs to the same volume, which may make some of them quieter than you’d like. The volume limit will limit how loud the music can be. Turning these off will allow you to listen to music at its loudest without damaging your hearing.
Boost The Volume In Spotify
To boost the volume in Spotify:
- Click the “settings” icon on your iPhone or iPad and choose your device from the menu that pops up.
- Select “Music” and scroll down until you see “Volume Boost” under General Settings.
- Select the extra volume you would like applied every time you play something new in Spotify (1% is recommended for most people).
- If you don’t have this option enabled already, tap it once to turn it on.
Place The iPhone In A Bowl Or Glass
The iPhone’s speakers are located at the bottom of the phone. If you put it in a bowl or glass, the speakers will be amplified, and the sound of your music will be louder.
That’s because the concave shape of the bowl or glass creates a sort of “megaphone” effect that helps your music be heard more clearly. The effect is most powerful when the phone is resting on a surface that amplifies the sound – such as a wooden table.
But How Does It Work?
It’s all about physics. The curved shape of the object reflects the sound waves coming from your iPhone, redirecting them and increasing their volume as they move away from the phone. In essence, it creates an artificial version of what happens when you cup your hands around your mouth to make yourself heard across greater distances.
The sound from a speaker comes out in waves that spread out from their source, rather than traveling in a straight line. When these waves hit a solid object, they bounce off like billiard balls, hitting another ball on a pool table. So, if they hit something curved, they reflect at an angle.
Don’t Cover The Speakers
Have you ever wondered why it’s not a good idea to put your fingers over the speakers of your iPhone, even though that makes your music sound louder? It turns out that doing this can damage the speakers!
It’s not just an issue of loudness or volume – it’s an issue of volume and pressure. If you’ve ever put your finger over a hose and noticed how the water comes out much more powerfully, you’ve seen the principle in action. By blocking off part of the exit route for the air coming out of your iPhone’s speakers, you cause it to come out more forcefully.
That kind of force isn’t good for any piece of machinery, but especially not for the delicate mechanism in your phone that produces sound. The extra strain can wear down its parts faster, leaving you without working speakers.
The next time you’re tempted to cover up your speakers to increase the volume on music or a video, resist! Keep them uncovered and save yourself money on repairs by keeping those delicate speakers safe.
Are iPhones Known For Music Quality?
The iPhone is not known for having exceptional audio quality. It’s not that the phone itself is bad, but there are some serious limitations on its audio components, which affect the quality of music output.
For example, the iPhone has an amplifier that works similarly to headphones, pumping out different frequencies at different levels. Unfortunately, this often leads to sound distortion – especially in the bass range – and can make it hard to hear certain frequencies. The iPhone also doesn’t have an equalizer built into it or its operating system, so users have to download a third-party equalizer app to make adjustments.
The iPhone speaker can sometimes be drowned out when indoors, especially in a crowded setting or just in a room with other loud sounds. Thankfully, there are several ways to amplify your music without being too intrusive. We hope this article gave you a few ideas the next time you want to blast “We Are The Champions.”
