Disabling this option in Spotify can help your music be heard better
[Image: 1366_2000.jpg]

If you use the Spotify application on Windows, macOS, Linux, or even Android or iOS, there is a setting that is active by default that seems completely harmless but is far from being so in some cases.

It's about volume normalization, a Spotify feature they claim to enable "a more consistent listening experience." What this does is adjust the volume of all songs to the same level, but it's actually a bit more than that.

For years the Spotify community has talked about how this small option can damage the listening experience for users, especially if you are Premium and have very high streaming quality active.

Because although it sounds like it is just a volume detail, the process can limit the dynamic range of the music and reduce its quality, not to mention that there are songs that simply need to be heard louder. In fact, Spotify itself recommends disabling this option to listen to the songs at the level that they were originally recorded.

Doing so is very simple, if you are on the desktop you just have to go to Spotify Preferences. To do this, click on the menu button at the top, then on Edit and finally on Preferences. Or press CTRL + P if you are on Windows.

From the new window with options, navigate to the section where Music Quality appears and uncheck the Normalize volume - equalize volume of all songs box.

This setting is individual for each application, so if you have another computer or operating system, or you also use Spotify on your mobile, you should go to the settings of each one and look for the option.

On iOS and Android it is in the playback settings and can be found as Enable audio normalization. You just have to take the test and see the difference with your own ears. In addition, it is a function only for Premium users, so it affects precisely those who can increase the listening quality to the maximum.
