The 5 Best Speaker Booster Apps of 2023

Want louder music? Better call volume? Improved headphone volume? Try these apps

Your phone can be much louder than you think. It just needs the right app to turn your favorite songs all the way up. If you want to get the most out of your phone speakers, want more bass, or want to improve the sound quality of your phone calls, there's a speaker booster app for you.

Regardless of which speaker app you decide to use, there's a risk of damaging the phone speakers, headphones, or your hearing if the volume is too high for too long. If you hear distortions in the audio, the volume is too high. Use these speaker booster apps carefully.
