How to Normalize the Volume on an iPod Playlist

The iPod has revolutionised how millions of users listen to their favourite music, be it at work, at the gym or almost anywhere they go. Its rich features and ease of use make the iPod one of the world's most popular consumer electronic devices. However, one of the odd features of the iPod is it plays songs at their recorded volume, making some songs play much louder or much softer than the user wishes. The solution to this annoyance is equalising or normalising the volume across all the songs on an iPod playlist.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn on your iPod by pressing and holding down the "ON/OFF" button and select the "Settings" icon after the iPod has booted up.

  2. 2

    Select the "Music" option on the "Settings" menu.

  3. 3

    Switch the "Sound Check" option from "OFF" to "ON." All of your songs will now play at a uniform volume, regardless of their recording volume.
