Hey there, @Wizard1. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the volume.

Something to note:

  • We don't alter music equalization on Pandora from how it appears on the original releases, unlike terrestrial radio, which compresses the entire broadcast.
  • As a result, some songs sound louder than others. However, we do use the Replay Gain technique that encodes a fixed volume adjustment into the mp3/mp4 header so that the actual player (web browser, phone or device) can adjust volume just as the track begins playing.
  • If there are vast differences, it could also be due to different instrumentation or arrangements causing different apparent levels of volume where the actual decibel levels are the same.

++

Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening?

  • Does this occur with all songs? Or, just certain ones?
  • Are you using headphones, connected a speaker, or any Bluetooth devices when you experience this?

In the meantime, I would recommend trying out the basic / advanced steps to see if it helps.

Let me know how it goes. 🎧

I think it's my Motorola 6gs ? I guess what I'm looking for is there a way you can offer me on your end to get the volume up, or otherwise solve this for a non technical kinda guy ?
