Quiet Dialogue Loud Music Issue - NETFLIX

I have a A7300 Hisense TV. I've noticed that on Netflix the music/sound fx are so much louder than the dialogue which I can hardly hear. I'm hoping the TV is on the wrong setting. I currently have it set to standard and the surround sound off. Any tips?

I think your best bet would be to add an soundbar,to your setup,should help a lot with S/Q.

I've actually just played the same TV show on Netflix but from my Amazon Fire Stick. Sounds perfect. Are the sound settings different on the fire stick? By that I mean if I adjust my sound EQ settings on the TV will that not matter because the FireStick has it's down default settings?

Sorry not sure,not used an Amazon Fire Stick,but the S/Q will adjust to the quality of the program feed.

I have a B7500 and when I watch any of the streaming catch up services or Netflix the sound is lower than broadcast TV or anything through the HDMI port and I have to turn the sound up around double what I normally do in order to comfortably hear it. Just need to remember to turn it back down before I exit or broadcast TV volume would deafen you!

This suggests the TV is not making a particularly good job of downmixing and processing the Netflix stream. I don't think this is related to the quality of the feed, but is down to the way that the TV has been designed or programmed.

I would second that a sound bar is probably the simplest fix. Did this for my mother's TV, as although the audio was not bad, it was not adjustable in any way and just sounded a bit flat. The soundbar added some life and the different modes have made for a more pleasurable listening experience.
