Hey there, @Cricketziggy. 👋

Thanks so much for posting about this.

Unfortunately, we do not offer a separate volume booster for Pandora. The volume is controlled by using the volume buttons on the side of your iOS device.

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 (or lower) 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.

If you'd like to see a volume booster on Pandora, I would recommend creating a feature request here.

If you do use hearing aids with bluetooth capabilities, you may be able to connect your phone to them. Feel free to let me know and I can help with that.

I hope this information is helpful.
