Hi, @MistressSian. 👋

Thanks so much for your feedback around this.

We don't alter music equalization on Pandora from how it appears on the original releases unlike terrestrial radio, which may equalize or compress the entire broadcast. This can result in some volume differences between songs. While we don't currently provide a built-in equalizer for the Pandora application, the best way to get ideas like this heard is by posting / upvoting on this existing feature suggestion: Adjustable / Visual Equalizer

Hope to see you around the community space more often. 🎧

Hi there, @bobbyprather195. 👋

This is not currently a feature of Pandora at this time. Unfortunately, there aren't any compatible apps that I could recommend. In the meantime, we do have this existing feature suggestion that you may be interested in upvoting: Adjustable / Visual Equalizer

There definitely needs and should be an in app equaliser. Pandora is too well established for there not to be one already!

Equalisers do not always have yo do with the song, but the quality of the device that is delivering the sound. Those devices are not always delivering the sound the artists have hoped for since technology has changed drastically over the decades. Most phones Equalisers are subpar at best and therefore Pandora being a media giant they are and wanting to offer the best experience would want to make sure we have the best sound. However, from that response it seems us terrestrial beings will find better ways to tweek the sound. Honestly I expect more. I guess that's why so many more people go to Spotify.

I'm on a galaxy S20 5G phone, OS version 12, recently upgraded from 11, which I also had this issue on.

I am using the PowerAmp Equalizer app, which takes control of the device audio and applies an eq preset. I should not that EVERY OTHER APP on my phone that produces audio works just fine, pandora is the only one with issues. This issue is also present on Bluetooth headphones, and when running wired headphones via USB (no headphone jack). 

When the eq app is active, Pandora does a weird thing: roughly 50% of the time, when a song starts playing, it plays at a lower volume, at about half, or 3dB lower than it should be. If I pause, then play again, the volume returns the correct volume for the duration of the song. It does not matter how the sog starts playing, whether I choose it directly, in a playlist, or it comes up in a station, roughly 50% of songs that play start at this low volume, and it will continue at that low volume until the song is complete, and the next song will have that same 50% chance of playing at low volume.

I believe this is a bug with the pandora app for android, as again, no other app presents this problem.

Eqfy is a global equalizer that works with Pandora it's like 5 bucks and if you change the gain settings in the apps settings to high you get distortion so just watch out for that but I have yet to find a app it won't work for yet so.... Only other thing is when you connect to apps it only really works on music you've downloaded and YouTube music for everything else it says unknown media but still works if you tweak the eq a bit it works good
