Despite the rant of users who despise Samsung for adding tons of bloatware to their TouchWiz UI, it can sometimes be a good thing. One such blessing in disguise is the ability to improve sound quality on Galaxy devices, which comes built into Samsung devices in the form of Adapt Sound.
While the feature is relatively unknown to most users, it can be the ultimate one for audiophiles. If you are among those who aren’t satisfied with the sound experience of their Samsung Galaxy device, check out the tutorial below and fine-tune it with Adapt Sound.

Note: The Adapt Sound feature is available only on Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later.
Step 1: Navigating to the Adapt Sound Settings
There is no great trick about how to fine tune the sound settings of your Galaxy device. However, finding the Adapt Sound feature can be practically impossible if you don’t know where to look. So the get started head over to the Settings App and open “Sounds and vibration”.
Now look for the “Sound quality and effects” tab option, which can be found at the bottom of the menu. Finally, you will be able to find the “Adapt Sound” menu on this screen, so tap on it and then select “Personalize sound” to begin tweaking.
Step 2: Take the Hearing Test to Improve Sound Quality on Galaxy
The Adapt Sound menu will ask you to plug or pair your earphones with the device and find a quiet place. Once you’re ready, press the “Start” button and the system will begin playing a series of faint sounds with different frequencies.
After each frequency, the system will ask you whether you can hear the beep, so answer as you continue through the hearing test. The phone will continue to create a sound profile which is personalized to your ears as it continues the test for a couple of minutes.
Step 3: Enjoy your Personalized Sound Profile
Once the personalized profile is ready, Adapt Sound will end the hearing test by asking you which ear you prefer for phone calls. The new sound profile which has been set with your feedback will be applied system-wide to help you get a truly personal audio experience.
