With EQu, shape your sound to match a particular style, your mood and your acoustic environment. Subtly adjust the spectral balance to get the most out of your speakers and headphones, at any playback volume.

EQu's linear phase design also preserves all of your music's fidelity and introduces no spatial distortion.

I’ve used this app for a few years now. Not only for my headphones but also my car stereo... it’s AMAZING... I like my bass boosted (not massively), and it’s ideal...
I now have Bluetooth earbuds for my iPhone 7, and the tweaks you can make are perfect... I love this app :)

Does the trick.


I've used EQu on my iPhone 4 for two years. It's easily the most useful app on my iPhone to date. The purpose of this application is to provide a parametric equalizer for your music. It uses it's own interface for selecting music, but has no less functionality than your in-house Music app. This application is also very good if you use relatively cheap earphones that might need a bit more power in the low or high end of your tracks to give them more oomph!

I had been looking for years before to find an app that allowed me to customize the EQ on my iPod touch, and still to this day Apple does not allow this properly via the settings, the presets they offer are abysmal and dumbed down. This application however allows you to tweak the EQ in a variety of ways and even supports gestures to move around your EQ curves.

With no noticable drain on my iPhone 4, I doubt there will be any noticable impact on newer devices in terms of battery usage. This is just a beautifully customizable, easy to use music app - with more features. It is well worth the money.

Very good but could do with a few tweaks...


This app is great for those who wish to improve the sound of their older music collection. I listen to a lot of stuff from the 70s, which can have a sound that's quite lifeless at times and dull, but this adds some brilliant brightness to it and a lot of punchy bass. I particularly like the function of increasing the headroom to boost the level of an otherwise low level MP3.

My few criticisms are:

When I select an artist it shows every song in every album as a long list, it would be better if it showed the albums from the chosen artist as another sub menu, that way you could choose an album without sifting through the long list of tracks.

It's quite difficult to adjust the 'Q' of a band because you need to fiddle with two spots either side of the desired 'Q' setting. It would be better to create a system that allows you to adjust the 'Q' using a slider. In fact, it would be better if you could adjust the frequency, dB and 'Q' as an interchangeable slider instead of using your finger, as this current method is quite tricky on a small iPhone screen.

None of the above issues take anything away from the app, it's just a bit time consuming sometimes.

On the whole I love this app and I can't wait for future updates :-)
