In the same screen you can also find an option named sound balance which will allow you to adjust the sound balance to get the best balance between the left and right audio. This of course will expand your experience while using this phone to listen to the music or other sounds.

How to customize sound balance?
Below are the steps you need to do:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Accessibility.
  3. Scroll down to the Hearing section, then tap Sound Balance.
  4. To adjust balance between left and right audio, slide the bar to the left or to the right.
  5. Tap OK button to save the changes.

By knowing the steps to adjust balance while you're in the stereo audio, now you can customize it according to your hearing, preferences and the sound sources. So, hope this helps :)


  1. Hi, I had previously adjusted the volume to be louder in one ear, but after the new software update, the sound balance option is no longer there. What can I do to balance the sound again?

    1. Hi BoredCanadianGirl,
      Thanks for coming.
      Can you please tell me what's carrier are you using now? In Android 4.3, the Sound balance option can be found in the Settings> tap My device tab> scroll down to find Accessibility, then tap it> scroll down to find Sound balance, then tap it. From here you should be able to adjust balance between left and right audio.
      Hope this helps :)
