If u go into settings and then sounds and down the bottom select adapt sound.

Run that using your headphones and it will adapt the sound to your hearing through a number if beep tests.

I've done it myself and the quality of the sound for me is better as it's more suited to my hearing.

I'm not sure where all of these complaints are coming from. After having used Voodoo Louder for the majority of the time I had the S2, I was very happy when listening on the S4 that it wouldn't be needed. For me, it is much louder than the S2.

In my case the problem is more subtle. My car has an auxiliary input and requires more output from the headphones to make it usable. I'm also looking how the levels can be boosted for this purpose.

Thanks for the thread reference. Unfortunately my 9505 does not support this.

Oh sorry. Keep forgetting I have to pay attention to which S4. I hate when they come up with so many different variants.
