You should check by inserting your left ear speaker into the right ear and vice versa, just to verify that the problem is with the headphones and not your ears. Now that we have confirmed the issue is with your earphones, let’s go ahead with adjusting the voice quality in the left and right earbuds.
One Earphone Louder than the Other Android
Follow the steps below on your devices with Android 4.4 KitKat and newer operating systems to balance the audio coming to your headphone speakers.
Step 1: Open the Settings in your Android phone.
Step 2: Scroll through the settings and click on Accessibility.
Step 3: Scroll down to the Audio and On-Screen Text settings in the Accessibility screen.
Step 4: Check for the position of the slider in the Audio balance.

This will balance the noise coming out of your earphones so that you are able to listen to a decent volume from both the speakers.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy S4 or later, you must try an app called Adapt Sound which promises to give you even more control over the audio output you receive from the headphones. The Adapt Sound is not supported by all music apps but surely works with a Samsung built-in music app or even with Google Play Music.
You can set up the Adapt Sound settings in your Samsung device in two simple steps. Firstly, you need to put on your headphones and find the Adapt Sound in your Sound settings. This will play a series of tones and beeps at various frequencies. For the second step, you are supposed to answer whether you were able to hear these sounds properly. The app will then adjust the tones and frequencies of certain audios that you may be troubled with and deliver a perfect tonal quality to your ears. With this additional feature in your pocket, you are sure to enjoy your music more as it gives you a personalized music experience.
