How to use the audio equalizer on your iPhone, iPad, Mac with Evermusic and Flacbox

Most audio players include different variations of equalizers, starting with some primitive ones concluding with too elaborate and confusing ones. Our audio apps Evermusic and Flacbox are full-featured audio players that have a professional 10-band equalizer with many popular presets like Electronic, Jazz, Pop, Hip Hop, Rock, Bass Booster, Bass Reducer. Furthermore, the app features all the other stuff you would like to see in a music app: easy playlist control, shuffle, repeat, audio bookmarks, favorites, sleep timer, playback speed control.

Why do we need an equalizer?

In an ideal listening environment, with perfect music files and perfect headphones, you wouldn't need to boost bass or tweak treble—so you wouldn’t need an equalizer for your music on your iOS device.

But most of us spend time listening on the train, at the gym, or while walking along city streets—situations that from an aural perspective fall far shy of perfection—and with less-than-perfect headphones. That’s where EQ can make a big difference.

Adjust the frequency components of music material to desired balance – not all recordings are of the same frequency balance, and they can’t be so because music is creativity. Sometimes we may want to adjust frequency balance for a better listening experience.

Compensate for imperfect loudspeakers/headphones frequency response – earbuds always lack low frequencies but have abundant high-mid. In-car audio systems vary significantly in the low/bass output while computer speakers need more EQ than serious hi-end loudspeaker systems

Compensate for changing acoustical background noise (in the subway, in a car, in crowded places) to avoid the need to increase the total volume.

If you listen at a low volume, you might want to raise low and high frequencies. When you are listening to it loud, you will probably benefit from reducing the hi-mid region as most sensitive. You can use the equalizer as a creative tool in a party/DJ.
