For certain reason, you may want to adjust call audio for incoming call so that you can get a better call audio according to your need and situation. You can do so by personalizing the call audio to make it softer, clearer or even optimized for your right or left ear.

  4. Scroll down to find Personalise call sound, and then tap it.

To see your current adapt sound settings, tap Check Adapt Sound again button and if necessary you can re-setup your adapt sound by tapping the Retry button and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the adapt sound personalization. The headphones should be inserted while you're personalizing the adapt sound.
