Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Enable Adapt Sound in Android 4.4 Kitkat

If you like listening to the music using headphones, then you'd better to enable the adapt sound feature owned by the Samsung Galaxy SIV. This feature will help you to hear the music sound better by adjusting the volume and also balancing between the left and right audio based on your hearing, the headphone you're using, the sound source and your preferences. When you activate this feature, you'll be presented with a series of beeps and you have to confirm whether you can hear that beeps or not. The result will be used by your phone to fine-tune the headphones output so that you can get the optimal sound experience during call and while playing music.



How to enable the adapt sound feature?
Before doing this personalization process, please make sure that you're in a quiet room and wearing your headphones properly. Well, here are the steps:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap My device tab.
  3. Tap Sound.
  4. Scroll to the very bottom to find the Adapt Sound, and then tap it.
  5. Tap Start button.
  6. You'll hear a series of beeps in low and high frequency. Tap Yes button when you hear the beep or tap No button when you don't. The phone will play the beeps through either the left or the right channel because the adapt sound process will adjust each channel separately. You don't need to worry if you can't hear all of them, because it's not only based on your hearing but also the headphones that are being used. Also, please note that during this process, the volume is set at specific level, and the user's current volume will be restored once this process is completed. FYI, this is my result (1010 1100 0110 0110 0010 1011 0110 1010 0000), 1 is yes and 0 is no.
  7. If you've heard all of the beeps, you'll be presented with a graph shows your hearing capabilities(left and right) with and without the adapt sound. The x-axis shows the frequency while the y-axis shows your hearing ability.
  8. Tap Preview Adapt Sound button to preview the original and personalized sound in the left/right/both channel.
  9. Under the Adapt Sound settings section, you'll be given with the following options:
    • Call sound: check the box next to this option to enable and use the adapt sound during call. Enabling this option will also enable the adapt sound in the Settings> My device> Call> Personalise call sound.
    • Music sound: check the box next to this option to enable and use the adapt sound while listening to the music in the Music player app. Enabling this option will also enable the adapt sound in the Music player app> Settings> Adapt sound.
    • Frequently used side: tap this option to select which side you use the most(Left or Right).
  10. Tap Done button.
  11. Your personalised sound settings will be applied to the selected options.

As a note, the result of this personalization process is a user-specific therefore each user may get the different result. Also, due to this process depends on what headphone you're using, then to get the best result, you have to re-setup the adapt sound process when you switch your headphone to the new one.
