Hey there, @Randy70. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space.

When using your iOS device, you can increase the volume by using the volume buttons on the side of your phone. Something to note, 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.

Are you having trouble with the volume being too low?

If so, are you connected to another device (like a speaker / headphones) when this happens?

Hope this helps. 🎧

Why does the volume for songs play so low on pandora but every other app is so loud?!!! I’ve never had this issue until recently. Someone please help because this is annoying.

Hi @LisaLisa_B!

I moved your message over to a thread that was similar: iOS: How to Increase the Volume

I would review the accepted solution above to see if this is a similar experience to yours. If not, can you tell us a little more about your experience?

For example, is this happening on a particular station, album, or track, and if so, what's the name? When listening are you connected to another device such as a Bluetooth speaker?

Additionally, can you let me know the make and model of your device, along with the OS version and Pandora version. If you need help finding that information, let me know.

Thanks for the help!
