Add Equalizer in Spotify

For ipod touch there is a huge need for eq because Spotify bypasses the regular Apple Sound Settings.

I use high end headphones but need to be able to fintune the settings so I can enjoy my music and tech equally.

So please, please make an EQ for the spotify app

Updated: 2015-09-17

Spotify now lets you enjoy music audio the way you want to hear it with the launch of our in-app equalizer on the iPhone and iPad.

Simply update the latest version of the Spotify iOS app and go to Settings > Playback > Equalizer to access the new feature.

If you're one of our Android friends, we already have a native equalizer which you can access inside the app under Audio Effects in the Settings. 

If you'd like to see an equalizer on desktop you can give kudos to this "Equalizer for the Desktop Version" idea. Thanks!

Bumpity bump! I totally agree with everyone in this thread. I use the EQ in iTunes very genttly because I have a flat set of speakers and in-ears. It's the only thing I miss in Spotify!

Honestly, the youtube link worked!  There is a EQ hidden in spotify.  And I will now resubsubscribe. 

 

It works pretty good, 10 band eq.

Hey! It is an inbuilt EQ to Spotify. Just start a song, so you get up the album cover, (this need some attempts) quickly draw the small letter "e" on the album. It will sometimes change song, but it'll work.

All this talk about "get better headphones"..... I have top of the line audiophile headphones(Not bass hog Beats mind you) and I still like to tweak the EQ to optimize the sound quality I'm hearing. PLEASE try and make this happen soon!

I recently discovered the hidden EQ as well and it definitely made the sound much better out of my iPhone.  Unfortunately I have updated it and have lost it!!!  Not very happy and agree if anyone finds a way to get it back post here please!!

I am really disappointed that the equalizer has been removed from the latest iOS update.

 

I suffer from industrial hearing loss with poor hearing in the mid-range band.   I desperately need equalization to compensate for this.  I am sure there are other people with hearing disabilities as well, so this is an important issue.

 

This implies that a more sophisticated equalizer is required rather than the old hidden basic one, because people like me need to be able to adjust for specific frequency ranges.

Hi Spotify, it was great to see that you are working on an equalizer. Even if it's not ready yet.

I have five sets of headphones and also use a wireless speeaker - all of them sound different! So I am eager to see this implemented.

 

It would be great if users can save their own equalizer profiles as part of this change.

 

Really enjoying the service so far

I think it's unacceptable to have come this far in product development without implementing an EQ, given both the facts that 1) there is high demand from your customer base, and 2) it would be a key differentiator from other streaming service. In fact, to "vote with my dollars" -- I'm going to cancel my Spotify premium subscription and switch to a different service (MOG, Rdio) -- I'll consider switching back to Spotify once there's an equalizer. Get your act together.

Hello I totally agree with the idea of adding built in equalizer for Spotify (all versions - Win, Mac, Mobile). It should be like a regular equalizer - regulation of the gain for the main octaves should be enough, also there must me an option to save your settings on the equalizer and also it would be nice to have some presets.

It's been months since people started requesting an EQ on the IOS platform. i don't understand why Android users have an EQ on their version of spotify yet Iphone users don't. I'm a premium user, and I have been paying monthly for spotify. I have sent in numerous requests and voted up on this issue already and yet, it seems you all show a lack of concern for your customer satisfaction.

 

Multiple people have threated to stop subscribing to spotify because of the lack of an EQ. 

It seems evident to me that the adminstrators of Spotify are showing complete disregard for their customers.

I am tired of waiting. If an EQ is not included in the next update, I am officially reverting back to free spotify and my Itunes. 

AS A FELLOW USER, you can help PUSH THIS ISSUE by actually stopping your subscription as well (upon the next update, so we actually still give them a chance even though we've given them MANY), until they chose to ACTUALLY do something about it instead of always putting it off for "other more important tasks"

I am a customer, and i am not satisified.
