Several people have reported that the sound level on the Mac is too low. Furthermore, users have reported that the speakers (built-in or external) or headphones they are using are not loud enough, even when the volume limit is set to the highest output level. This article outlines a step-by-step procedure for repairing and increasing the sound loudness. This page applies to MacBooks and Mac desktop computers.
This article is for you if you are having problems hearing any noises on your Mac when playing sound via speakers (built-in or external) or headphones. Please attempt these actions in the sequence listed. After completing each step, check the Mac volume to verify whether the issue has been resolved:
If Your MacBook Volume is Low. Try These:
- Simply restart your computer. You may restart your Mac by selecting Apple > Restart.
- Update your Mac to the most recent macOS version. Go to System Preferences > Software Update to do so.
- To check whether it makes a difference, close all applications. You may close all applications at once.
- If you’re utilizing Bluetooth equipment (such as speakers or headphones), ensure Bluetooth is turned on on your Mac.
- If you have external speakers, try cleaning them.
Second, Check Your Settings
- The first step is to go over these fundamentals. For instance, there might be a setting that has to be altered.
- If you’re having this issue when using a certain program, ensure the volume isn’t turned down or muted since some applications have their own audio and/or video volume settings.
- If you’re having this issue with external speakers, ensure they’re switched on and properly connected. Check that the speaker wire is firmly inserted into your Mac’s “audio out port.” If it’s a USB device, be sure you plug it into a USB port. Check that the volume is cranked up or appropriately adjusted if they have a volume control knob or control.
- Go to System Preferences, then Sound, and finally Output on your Mac. Then make certain that:
- Mute is not enabled.
- The output volume is enough. You may wish to set the slider to 50-75% of its maximum range.
- Ascertain that the proper sound device is chosen. Select a suitable device, such as iMac Speakers, Internal Speakers, your external speakers, Display Audio, or USB speakers, depending on how you wish to listen.
