TV Problem with Volume

My problem is that when I watch any channel the background noise is blaring. For example, when watching a football game the band, music, drums, fans cheering is blaring and you cannot hear a word the announcers are saying. Same thing with commercials.

Hope someone has had this problem and has the solution.
Grateful for your help!

Welcome to reality TV! Ugh About the best you can do is turn your center channel up and surround channels down for games.

Sounds like you may have the problem I have and that is poor hearing. If there is any background noise at all I have a problem understanding the dialogue. I have these TV Ears 2.3MHz 10341 WIRELESS HEADPHONES HEADSET SYSTEM on eBay! on the tv in my house and motorhome and can adjust the volume so I can hear what is being said and the wife uses the normal volume. Now sometimes she ask me "what did they say" instead of the other way around. Don't mess with any of the other variations of TV Ears and stick to the cheaper 2.3 MHz. I have tried them all and the 2.3 MHz works the best.

Most coaches have TV sound into the surround sound and you can adjust the base mid and treble untill you reduce background and improve the voce range. I have tv sound speakers turned off and external only on so it has to use the larger speakers that are not inside the cabinet and muffled so bad I only get garble. I can also adjust front to rear to it is not loud in bedroom. Bad side I have another darn remote to use. This year I am going to have grandson help me get a new 4 device remote working for Tv, Direct, Surround, and DVD. Hope he can push right buttons and I will record what we do on iphone and save the movie so I can redo it if or when it gets messed up.

What brand and model TV do you have? Do you have the problem when listening through a surround-sound system?

I've been using headphones for 5-6 years. It helps a lot.

Well, there are rules limiting the "loudness" of commercials (Loudness and volume are not the same thing).. but stations sometimes bend those rules a bit.

here is how you increase loudness without messing with volume.

Volume, as defined is the LOUDEST sound you hear

LOUDNESS, is the average volume.

So you use something like an OPTIMOD and keep the volume within say 2db of maximum, that makes it very loud (Since normal voice is more like 20% average)

However, as for background sounds on sports announcers drowning out their inane patter.. Since Ernie Harwell was forced into retirement.. No loss there.

If you are listening in Surround Sound, it sounds like your center channel is not working. The center channel is where almost all of the dialog comes through.
