If you regularly listen to music on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you will have noticed that this is of excellent quality. Especially in combination with AirPods or good headphones. However, this quality can be improved by adjusting two simple options in the settings menu.
The options relate to the volume difference that is noticeable between different tracks and the equalizer. By changing the settings of these options, you will notice that the music experience sounds richer and less fluctuations in the volume level will occur.
How to Use Equalizer on iPhone or iPad
- Open ‘Settings’
- Navigate to the ‘Music’ option
- Activate the option ‘Sound control’
- Then open ‘Equalizer’
Via the Equalizer (EQ) you can easily change the frequencies of the outgoing audio. This enriches the music experience and makes optimal use of the bass, frequencies, highs, and lows. It is advisable to see what kind of music you have most often in your music library and to set the Equalizer accordingly.
Examples include pop, rock, hip-hop, and so on. Do you often listen to music through the speaker of your iPhone? Then switch on the ‘small speakers’. If you want to save your hearing, it is best to switch on ‘Late in the evening’. Experiment to find your ideal EQ experience.
Enable sound control for music
You can enable the ‘Sound control’ option via Settings ▸ Music. Your iPhone or iPad will then automatically match the volume of the songs so that the volume difference between the songs becomes less noticeable.
Streaming in high quality
Do you use Apple Music and often listen to music on the go? Then you can also enable high-quality streaming via Settings ▸ Music ▸ Mobile data. Then you can also listen in high quality via the mobile network. Do you stream via WiFi or have you downloaded the music? Then it will always be played in the highest quality.
