Spotify volume too low

Music Fan

Hello guys, I really like Spotify but the volume is lower than deezer and the others music streaming services.
In cellphone it doesn't really annoy me, but in the Windows app, it is really annoying, do you guys have a solution?

It varies from song to song as to how 'loud' it is. That said, you can actually double your max volume for Spotify by opening up your Volume Mixer (Windows) and move the slider for Spotify. Be careful though and don't do it while a song is playing through your headphones (if you use them)... it gets really loud real fast.

Hi, and welcome to the community!

 

The volume seems to be loud enough for me.

What version of windows and Spotify version is this?

Have you made sure the slider and the volume in the windows mixer is as high as it can be if you need it that high?

What sound system are you using? Are you using an inline DSP? If not, what sound card does your computer run it through?

 

Is this volume being too quiet for every track or just for certain tracks? If it's only some tracks, go to Edit>Preferences>Show advanced settings, and enable set the same volume level for all tracks.

Funnily enough I just switched from the old 0.8.5 version of Spotify to the latest 1.05 just to see what's happening (it's mostly still crap) and noticed that the volume is much lower in the new client! Switched back to the old one, and voila, much better.

What gives? Actually, it also seems the actual sound quality is worse these days, as the sound becomes a bit muddy and almost distorted at times.

It is not the mixer, cause it is not just in windows app, i use deezer in my cellphone too, and spotify volume is much lower than deezer (but when I am using headphone it is actually nice, because I don't need to set the volume all the time).
When I am using the windows app and then I use some of my mp3, the difference is huge, try yourselves.

I'm on mac, and use the keyboard hotkeys to change volume. On the same setting the volume on the new client was a lot lower.

Maybe it has something to do with the new client indeed. But regarding your phone, have you tried turning off the spotify equaliser (audio effects)?

And just to be sure, for your PC, have you tried the following?

1. In your taskbar, rightclick the speaker icon.

2. Select "Playback Devices".

3. Go to the "Communications" tab.

4. Make sure you've got "Do nothing" selected.

5. Apply and OK.
