Improve LG V30 Audio & Enable DTS 3D Surround Sound

You can now improve the sound quality of your LG V30 even more thanks to DTS:X. This feature was released via a software update for this particular phone but looks like LG did not do a good job at implementing it. DTS:X is a new audio codex for LG devices and is very similar to Dolby Atmos. It has a few software tricks to improve the listening experience. It tags the sound sources with a location in a 3D environment, and it gives a surround sound effect.

According to the forum users, LG included DTS in the update of November 2018. Apparently, this feature does not appear as a separate feature and cannot be turned off or on. Luckily, you can enable it on your LG V30 by modifying a system file.

How To Enable Surround Sound on LG V30

Note: This is a simple guide that includes a change of line of a file. However, please note that editing or deleting other files might damage your phone, so please be careful. Also, make sure your phone is rooted and has root access.


  • Your phone needs to have the November software update or newer. The November update was the first time that LG included DTS.
