Guess it's not an option in Handbrake, but it does adjust the "dynamic range":
-MattDynamic Range Compression ¶
The dynamic range of an audio track is the difference between the softest and loudest sounds.
Dynamic range compression reduces the gap between those extremes.
Note, this is not the same as a gain or volume boost control. HandBrake does not currently support this.
- 1.0-2.5 are good values to use.
- 0, the default, turns it off completely.
- 1.0 uses the compression hints embedded in the AC3 track.
- Values greater than 1.0 compress the range further by boosting the volume of soft sound samples while leaving loud samples as they are. This squeezes down the range between the softest and loudest parts, but should make the softer ones easier to hear in noisy listening environments.
