I'm looking for a way to boost the headphone output of my Moto X (2013). I have rooted it and installed Alsa Mixer so I should be able to run shell scripts and modify it.

The thing is.. I can't find any good guides for this.

What I'm trying to do: - Boost the volume using a compressor (like radio stations tend to do) - Maybe apply a limiter after that just to be sure I don't blow up my headphones.

Can somebody help me plz?

My suggestion is to install Viper4Android. You can increase output by (as I recall) 8dB, and besides that, you will get a lot of options to adapt the sound to get the best output. Using it for a couple of years and still haven't found a better alternative.

  • Thanks I stumbled upon this myself yesterday but wanted to try it for a littke before answering my own question. It's a bit of a hassle to get it working (softbricked my phone because I forgot to restore build.prop file permissions) but once it works it really works!

    In settings, set the UI mode to Expert, you will get all the options available. If you stay in default mode much of the options (including the output dB strength) are hidden.
