Hi, i have recently bought a Philips mp3 player and the volume of the mp3s it plays seem to vary quite a lot.
Actual mp3s i have downloaded are almost loud enough (i work in a factory) but the recordings i have made using Audacity are not loud enough to hear.
I have the volume turned up to full on the mp3 player but wondered if there is any software that can increase the volume on mp3s?
I would say not, also if you play these through earphones the Player will have a "built in Volume limiter To cover them," so it does not damage your ears. You could however play it through a Speaker Amp that is made for these things like Ipod Doc etc
Yes, this is a question I would appreciate an answer to as well.
I appreciate the need not to have loud music via earphones and I'm not wanting the volume loud enough to do damage. I am a bit deaf in one ear; little/no useful hearing in t'other (had surgery) so I do struggle to hear via the one earphone (obviously record in mono now! ;) ).
I tend to listen to Classical music and similar, not the 'head banging' stuff and am not expecting the volume to compete with a noisy environment.
I find that both the CD's that I rip, or music/songs recorded via Audacity are certainly of lower volume (uniformly), in spite of input being at maximum. I have to say, I only have the necessary volume to hear, not to blast myself! My hearing is precious to me!
So, is there a way to increase the recording volume? It would be useful if there was a solution. I do enjoy music and am not too happy that I am getting to the situation that I can't use my MP3 much longer. I have Sony Walkman.
Alternatively, does anyone know if there is a method of listening to MP3 player via hearing aid, instead of earphone? Now, that would be brilliant :)
Fortunately, there's a simple remedy: MP3Gain, an oldie-but-goodie utility that equalises MP3 volume levels. It does so by modifying the appropriate metadata of each file so that music software and portable players know what the volume should be. Fortunately, it makes no changes to the actual music contained within each MP3, so there's no loss of sound quality.
