How to Normalize the Volume on an iPod Playlist

by Adam Brown

If you have a large collection of music on your iPod, chances are many of your songs have been recorded at varying volume levels. A very loud track that begins to play after your ears have adjusted to a lower volume can come as quite a surprise and cause temporary discomfort. However, your iPod has a sound check setting that normalizes all songs to an even volume so you can listen to your playlist peacefully.

Step 1

Tap the Settings icon.

Step 2

Select "Music" from the Settings menu.

Move the slider corresponding to Sound Check from OFF to ON.
