Hello,
I'm just trying to see if other people had experienced the same thing, or noticed it, i use 4 Pairs of bluetooth earphones / headphones, Soundcore libert y 2 Pro, 1more ANC, 1more stylish, Sony 1000xm4, and in all of them, i noticed a big drop in audio volume on browsers specifically, streams from twitch or videos from youtube are having a huge drop in volume, using music apps like AIMP don't have any volume loss, spotify does, which is a stream based app.

Today, i tried something, i always use a loudness equalizer to avoid any volume burst and hurt my hearing, but the app isn't compatible with Windows 11, windows has a built in equalizer, you can find those options by going to Windows settings, sound, more sounds settings, in playback list look for your headphones, and open their properties, under enhancement tab check loudness equalization, and now any audio source has the same volume and no need to change the volume depending on the app you chose, you should do this for each individual device if you have multiple.
hope this helps someone using TWH

Most online videos are digitized without adjusting the audio level. The default level is usually too low. In my mobile I use a global equalizer that increases the loudness (audio gain) so I can hear the dialogues of some series. You can also install a similar application in Windows. Also you can try to enable the "Loudness normalization" in Settings, Devices, Sound, enhancements.

Another workaround is to try opening YouTube videos with VLC or Media Player Classic and make sure you enable audio normalization. For Media Player Classic to open Youtube videos you must download YouTube-dl and copy it in the application's folder.
