Enlarge Android headphones or speaker volume

Enlarge Android headphones or speaker volume; require root.
Hello friends; Today we will see how it expands to Android speaker or headphones without having to install any application.
To edit the "mixer_paths.xml" file in the system / etc, we need root and a root browser. I recommend root browser.
Handset manufacturers, most often adjusts volume very low, not to have problems with their headphones or the stock sold as an accessory afterwards.
Quality headphones can accept more volume without distortion.
I'm testing a pair of headphones JVC very good. These headphones can go well with a volume of 90, and those OnePlus have adjusted the volume to 82. The difference is huge, especially in the ears.
If you have headphones best possible to raise the volume even more; but now it depends on the quality of telephone DAC.
Enlarge Android headphones or speaker volume!
1. Enter the system / etc with root browser and open the file "mixer_paths.xml"
2. Search for “Output Paths” and enter the desired value on “speaker” and “headphones”.
3. Save and reboot your phone or tablet.
Before editing the file, you should make a backup of the original.

      I have a Samsung S4, android 5.01 Lolipop and I know very little about IT, but I need more volume to wake up in the morning with the phone, which sometimes I don't hear. I used adaptive sound, I cut the song Zorba Greek, to select the part with more decibels, but in vain…. (I am hypoacusic and I would need more volume)

    • Liviu - YO3FYO said

      Perhaps each producer writes their command lines according to what the DAC (Ddigital Analog Converter) is using in the device schema and probably depending on the sound card used in the installation. So there are problems with the tutorial from one model to another. I have a S6 and it's nothing like the tutorial.

  52. for android 6.0 ,, You need to edit / system / etc / snd_soc_msm / snd_soc_msm_2x file. See SectionDevice Name “Speaker” and increase value for RX4 Digital Volume (from 68 to 76 as i done) for increasing loud for Speaker. For Headphone see SectionDevice Name “Headphones” and edit RX1 and RX2 Digital Volumes. I didn’t try to do it. Reboot your device. Excuse me for bad english ,,

  65. Hello,
    Mr. Cristian, please make a tutorial for increasing the volume with the MTK Engineering Mode application. I have a Myria Grand 4G, with Mediatek. Thanks to him, I have been with him for almost a year. It bothers me, the sound volume, including the speaker. If I use WhatsApp or Duo I have to keep my phone on my ear. This gives video call! I'm kidding, of course. Make me sorry. I have tried other applications, not doing much.
