    Enhancing the sound output

    You can enhance the sound of your device by manually enabling individual sound settings such as Equaliser and Surround sound. You can enable the Dynamic normaliser to minimise volume differences between songs or videos.

    To upgrade the quality of compressed music files

    1. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Audio settings.
    2. Enable the DSEE HX function by tapping the switch.

    Note

    Wired headphones that support High-Resolution Audio are needed to play back sound in a quality equivalent to High-Resolution Audio.

    To enhance the sound output automatically

    1. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Audio settings.
    2. Enable the ClearAudio+ function by tapping the switch.

    To adjust the sound settings manually using the Equaliser

    1. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Audio settings.
    2. If the ClearAudio+ function or the DSEE HX function is enabled, tap the switch to disable it.
    3. Tap Sound effects > Equaliser.
    4. To adjust the sound manually, drag the frequency band buttons. To choose a preset arrangement, tap (More options icon), select an arrangement, then tap OK to confirm.

    Hint

    The manual adjustment of sound output settings has no effect on voice communication applications. For example, there is no change in the voice call sound quality.

    To turn on the Surround sound feature

    1. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Audio settings > Sound effects > Surround sound (VPT).
    2. Swipe left or right to display the desired setting, then tap (Back button). The displayed setting is applied.

    To minimise volume differences using the Dynamic normaliser
