I have some hearing loss in one ear, and so want to change the left/right balance of audio output.
Normally this can be done in the
Settings > Accessibility > Hearing
but the option there to balance the audio is missing.
Anyone knows a solution?
Some music players provide this, but only for local music files (not for streaming for ex.)
I don’t see the setting either on my FP2 on Lineage 16.
Could be in sound/ sound effects on some phones, but not on my FP2 either.
Maybe someone will now more about that.
3 ideas in the meantime:
- If you choose mono in Settings > Accessibility > Hearing, at least you won’t miss anything from the other canal, but it’s not a very good method if you want mostly to push up the volume to the left and down to the right.
- There are some apps in the Play Store (I haven’t found any open source ones in F-Droid) with “equalizer” in the name. One of them could do the trick.
- Install xposed and then this module
Well I have this option on LineageOS 17.1, but it is
perhaps not available on older Android versions.
Thank you all for your consideration.
Putting sound on mono takes away a lot from the music, and I still hear less on one side (the sound not being balanced in the center of my head).
I think some Samsung phones have the setting. Hopefully a future FP3 update will introduce the feature.
I have no root and for the moment do not want to root my phone, because of all the work after the reset (had a lot of fun with Xposed and Magisk on FP2, but FP3 doesn’t need most tweaks I had).
So, following your suggestion I searched again and found “Equalizer Pie” on the play store.
It works! I can start it, adjust L/R and then start Spotify. Even with my Bluetooth headphones I now enjoy a perfect balance.
Thanks again @chrisse!
For completeness sake: as of Android 10 (official FP3 update), the audio balance setting is available! You can find it under Settings > Accessibility.
