      I actually thought that you exaggerated a little. But that's just my opinion.

      Also, they mix the movie about 30 times quiter than Video Games, so you turn the audio up to watch the movie, then once you're done you exit to the PlayStation menu and it makes you go deaf immediately.

                      That's why I leave my TV on night mode in the audio settings.

                      The "dialogue" or "news" settings usually sound decent too.

                      Hope this actually helps someone, my gf showed me that and it made a world of difference.

                          I'm in a film class where I'm fairly sure the professor has bad hearing, so she always turns the volume up all the way.
                          The film class is about women in action films.
                          I sit in the last row... right next to the speakers.

                          I haven't heard a single thing from the first day of class.

                                        100000000000% find myself turning up and down the volume on Netflix every time i watch a movie or tv show on there...

                                          I swear there are some movies in On Demand or Netflix or DVD where I have to clench my remote to turn up the volume for dialogue and turn it down for music and sound effects. I might as well be playing a video game with all the button pressing

                                                Obviously anyone who agrees with this video clearly watch their movies with shitty tv speakers. The audio for home media is specifically mixed for a proper home theater system in mind with dynamics intacted. Granted they should release like a 2.0 mix for tv playback it self but this is clearly not an issue for anybody with the proper setup. I refuse to let them mess up great mixes for people that only watch with their tv speakers or crap speakers in general. Get better equipments!

                                                      So when they actually mix the audio, is the dialogue lowered and music raised intentionally? or they just don't know what they're doing?

                                                                                          • Neknerp

                                                                                            TVs/dvd players/netflix usually default to compressing the 5.1 to come out of TV speakers, which makes the dialogue relatively quiet.

                                                                                            If you switch to the standard "stereo" audio option, then the volumes will be much more balanced on tv speakers.
