Sound Effects Tuning: You can change the sound effects between Bass Boost+, Balanced, and Bright as per your preference. We personally liked Bright for its broader range. You can also enable customized audio tuning by listening to some sounds and setting the tuning as you like.

Volume Enhancer: One more thing you can do for sound effects is you can enable the volume enhancer which will slightly increase the volume of the buds.
