Issue with built in audio - USB + Spotify


Mar 30, 2020
From what I've tested from USB and Spotify (built in version), I've noticed the volume fluctuate almost randomly both when it's hitting highs and lows.
It almost sounds like my ear is getting pressurized and then pops right after. I noticed this when playing music from USB drive and the Spotify app itself. It almost seems like it's auto-adjusting by speed.
But this does NOT happen to me with my bluetooth playback. The same songs sound normal and the volume does not adjust randomly.
I looked for settings possibly related to the speed and audio, but there's only one small settings portion for music.
Has anyone noticed this as well? Does anyone have and fixes for this?

I don't have much experience with spotify, but USB audio doesn't do what you're describing in my car. What kind of files are you using? What are your audio settings?
