Playstation 4 audio quality issue


Playstation 4 audio quality issue







Playstation 4 Pro

Operating System

PS4 Pro version 6.02 (lastest at October, 2018)


My Question or Issue

Hello, I've been using Spotify on my Xbox One S for a while and now I got a Playstation 4 Pro and I started to use on it too, but, the audio quality is awful on PS4, sounds like a radio station using my TV (Philips) or my headphones (Hyper X Cloud Stinger and JBL). This happens only in Spotify/Sony app, in other apps like YouTube or Netflix the audio is Lossless.

Already tried to change the audio setting from PCM to Dolby and DTS but at system settings but still the same awful audio quality.


I hope that is something "fixable", if not, I expect an app update or an independent app from Spotify, like YouTube have their own.(In Playstation, Spotify app is one with Playstation Music App).
