However, there are some tips that can be followed to improve the sound quality of headphones, regardless of their type, and to get a better audio experience, and we will mention the following:
1- Use appropriate earplugs:
Earbuds may have high sound quality, but if you don’t choose the right size eartips, you won’t get the highest quality earphones have to offer.
Mostly wireless earphones and regular wired earphones come with earplugs of several sizes. Try on each size to check for a fit, the right fit should be comfortable and isolate ambient noise.
2- Adjust the EQ settings:
Headphones contain different types of (sound signatures), a term that refers to how certain frequencies are amplified or reduced in the headphones, so that the way the music you listen to changes and makes it different.
For example, high-end earphones usually adjust the sound signatures to be more balanced, meaning that each type of music will sound the same without amplification. Whereas cheap earphones add more bass to all sounds, which is something that many people prefer.
If you don’t like the default sound signature of the earphones you’re using, adjust the EQ to your liking, you can lower or raise the frequencies to suit your preferences.
3- Use an external DAC:
Smartphones, tablets, and laptops all come with a built-in DAC, which is a digital-to-analog converter that converts digital signals into audio signals, allowing you to hear music. If the sound quality isn’t good with the headphones you’re using, adding an external DAC can help improve the sound quality a bit.
4- Clean the headphone jack:
If you are using wired earphones, make sure the headphone jack is clean, as a dirty and dusty jack can block the signal and cause buzzing and noise. Depending on the type of headphone jack you use; Dirt can cause one of the speakers to stop working.
5- Activate the noise cancellation feature in the wireless earbuds:
If the wireless earphones you are using have noise canceling (ANC), turn it on to isolate the noise around you and improve the sound quality, so you can hear the audio clips clearly.
6- Sit in a quiet room.
If you’re in a place with a lot of ambient noise, such as a bus stop, train station, or park, it’s normal for the sounds around you to interfere with the music or audio you’re listening to.
And if you are not using headphones that support noise cancellation, moving to a quiet room will help increase the clarity of the sound, and you will not have to raise the volume either, and this is important when using low-quality headphones in which the sounds become distorted when you raise the volume levels.
On the other hand, if you use headphones that support noise cancellation, you may not want to activate it because it reduces the battery life of the speaker, while deactivating this feature and moving to a quiet room allows you to listen to audio clips clearly and for longer periods because you will preserve battery life.
