There should be an Equalizer for the Desktop version of Spotify.
Since Spotify's mobile apps now have an EQ setting, this should be implemented on the desktop version, too! The EQ should come with various presets but also the ability to save your own custom settings.
Thanks to everyone for their contribution to this thread. We really appreciate it. In the interest of full disclosure, we’d like to share with you the status of this request.
After serious consideration, we’ve decided not to introduce an equalizer for the Desktop app at this time. As a result, we’ve marked this idea as Case Closed.
Although we appreciate many of you here would like to see an equalizer on the Desktop app, they are in fact used by a very small subset of listeners overall. We’ve therefore decided to focus our immediate attention and resources on features that have higher engagement at this time.
We may reassess this decision in the future. But, for now, we just wanted to keep everyone in the loop. Rest assured we’re constantly working to implement feature requests you make via the Ideas Exchange.
Thanks for understanding, and please keep those ideas and requests coming! Together we can make Spotify the best it can be.
you are using windows correct? if so go down to the speaker icon at the bottom on your taskbar. click on it then press mixer. fom there click on the icon for the speaker you are using then a new window should open that says speaker properties and should have 4 tabs(general,levels,enchancements and advanced) click the enchancements tab. put a checkmark on equalizer. go down where it says settings and you can pick from the default (pop, rock, bass boost, vocal, etc.)or tou can create your own setting with the (...) button. hope this helped.
