I have a Google Pixel 2 running Android 8.1.0 and Spotify Premium.
When activating and using the Equalizer function - every time a new song starts, it starts very loud for a brief moment, (like less than a half of a second) then the volume instantly drops quite a bit. Turn off the EQ, problem goes away. It seems like Spotify applies the EQ setting a brief moment after the song starts?
I like running the EQ, but that effect is annoying. Anyone else experience this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm afraid I haven't had to try third party equalisers as I haven't had this issue myself but many of them are either free or have a free trial so give them a go and let us know if you find one which works for you.
Some background information:
Most android equalisers don't boost the frequency band you increase but attenuate the other bands instead so the net result is that music plays quieter. You compensate by turning up the volume but, if there's a delay before the equaliser kicks in, the music plays too loud for a moment then the volume reduces once the equaliser catches up.
