Smartphone manufacturers nowadays tend to offer some kind of digital audio optimization to enhance the performance of the speakers built into their devices. OnePlus, for example, collaborated with Dirac Research till the release of the OnePlus 6T, but switched to Dolby Atmos audio tuning since the OnePlus 7 series.

Most of these technologies and solutions are deeply baked inside the firmware, thus modifying the existing presets usually requires root access. However, XDA Senior Member Rayekk has now discovered a simple trick (that doesn’t require root access) to replace the barebones Dolby Atmos Settings on the OnePlus 7 Pro with a more feature-filled equalizer. We have tested the method on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro without any issue, and this trick should also be possible with the regular OnePlus 7 as well as the OnePlus 7T series of phones.

Veteran OxygenOS users should be aware that OnePlus only offers three “scenario-based enhancements” – namely “Dynamic”, “Movie”, and “Music” – as the Dolby Atmos equalizer presets in these phones. The built-in presets come from the com.oneplus.sound.tuner package, which is itself a system-app. All you need to do is uninstall the package for the current user and then install a compatible controller app to unlock the full potential of your phone. The steps are listed below:
  1. Download "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" to your computer.
  2. Enable USB debugging on your phone, then connect the phone to the computer.
  3. Run the file "cmd-here", which you will find in the folder with ADB and Fastboot.
  4. Execute the following ADB command: adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.oneplus.sound.tuner
  5. If all went well, then you should see the message "Success" in the console, now you need to restart the phone, when it reboots, you will not find the "Dolby Atmos" in the phone's settings and thats okay.
  6. If you don't do it then the Dolby settings will reset once in a while, e.g. after a system reboot, that's why you had to do step 1 and 2 first before downloading the application.
  7. Download and install the Dolby Atmos control app on your OnePlus: APKMirror.
  8. And you're done! From now, Dolby Atmos control takes place only in this downloaded app, this is not any typical equalier you will find on Google Play, it is a Dolby system controller which means that it will work all the time, it will not be turned off when you close the app, this app replaces the Dolby system settings you just turned off.

Unlike typical third-party audio mods, the new equalizer seamlessly integrates with the OxygenOS firmware. While you can also restore the old presets using this ADB command:

adb shell cmd package install-existing com.oneplus.sound.tuner

we have summarized this tutorial from xda and tried it on OnePlus 8, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 7 series smartphones.
