Listening to a Stereo Feed

Although stereo feeds can be beneficial, we do recognize that there is one obvious downside - listening with a single speaker can be difficult. You can find information here to help improve your listening experience.


Listen using stereo speakers or headphones

This is the easiest way to deal with the problem, but typically only practical on a computer.


Use the balance control

Some players offer a balance control that allows you to fade towards one side of the feed. This control is not always turned on by default.

Enabling balance control on Scanner Radio
  • From the main screen, tap the menu icon in the upper-right corner
  • Select Settings
  • Select Player Settings
  • Check "Display balance control"
  • While listening, slide the balance control full left to hear only Police or full right to hear only Fire/EMS. You can also position the slider anywhere in between to hear one side at full volume and the other at a lower volume.
