Yet another app that looks interesting but I have not tried. Now before I cut and paste the email, a quick explanation of why you may want an equalizer your iphone/ipad. First off, the sound on the iPad is not exactly Audiophile quality and odds are the files you are downloading are not exactly high quality either. There is a reason most mp3, acc files are so small, lots of information is lost in the sake of compression. Now lets add to the mix that their is a VERY large range of headset devices out there much less connecting your iphone ipad to external speakers. As such, having the ability to adjust the sound to best adjust for weakness in the sounds aplifier and sounds quality is useful. However, the best use case is for adjusting for whatever headset you are using. Have cheap little earbuds? You may want to reduce the bass a bit to clean the sound up. Perhaps boost the mid/high a bit to get what fidelity you can. Have a really nice enclosed headset (cans)? Then perhaps just the reverse. Let some of the bass flow and flatten the bandwidth for a nicer more balanced sound. Riding the bus or biking or other some other load environment? May want to crank the mids a bit so that you can hear the music without having the blast it.
Anyway, a few tips from a recovered audiophile. Again, I have not downloaded this app, but given that the creator is trying to address the biggest reason I do not use a eq to date, battery life. An equalizer can really suck up power as well as warm your phone a bit. Perhaps we have a fix here.
