Sound Clips Volume

When playing sentence sound clips, I can barely hear the woman speaking even at max volume. The other Duolingo languages are nice and loud. Am I the only one with this problem?

I'm having the same problem. If I have headphones on, it's barely manageable, but if I don't and anything else is happening around me, forget it.


As for me Ukrainian woman voice is a little quieter than English for example. But I study Ukrainian in headphones, so it is not a problem in my case.


I hear them easily, but they are way quieter than Duolingo sound effects:

recording: (says something softly)

me: (typing)

Duolingo: DING DING!!!

Also, their volume varies a lot. Some are even more quiet.


Huh, I wonder why I don't get sound effects. I can only imagine how annoying it is to have dramatically different volume levels when practicing; it's a pain even just remembering to reset my volume after a practice session.
