    "Finally! After tyring many equalizers i found this app!! With this I can boost my bass without losing the quality of the song. NGL though i expected that i would be facing issues after downloading this but i didn't have any so far. *fingers crossed*"

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

An equalizer is a device or a program that allows the balance between soundwave frequencies to be adjusted. It adjusts the loudness of specific frequencies of sound, “cutting” and “boosting” them to get the best possible acoustic experience. Equalizers are used to customize how audio will sound like in specific places with specific configurations. For example, for a room that doesn’t respond well to bass frequencies, the equalizer can be used to boost the loudness of the bass frequencies to “equalize” the sound. Equalizer settings are also fixed for different genres and songs. Early equalizers were huge machines inside recording studios, but nowadays it can fit into smartphones, as there are dozens of equalizer apps online.

DID YOU KNOW?

A Twitter user by the name Hisagi claims to have found the perfect equalizer settings for iTunes. Nicknamed “Perfect,” the values on the equalizer must be set, from left to right, as +3, +6, +9, +7, +6, +5, +7, +9, +11, and +8. They claim that this custom setting improves the sound quality of any song, regardless of the song genre and the speakers used. Reviews for Perfect rave about how it does make the sound quality better for every song, but professional audio engineers state that there really isn’t a catch-all equalizer setting. It still very much depends on the speakers and the song itself. Intrigued but don't have iTunes because you're not an iPhone user? Here's a tip: You still can see whether "Perfect" really can live up to the billing with the hundreds of Android equalizers in the Google Play store!

    "Equalizer Music Player, what can I say? I desperately wanted it to be fantastic and it fell horribly short. The full page ads are killer and come one after another, the shake function is entirely too sensitive, and my phone screen has to be on for the app to keep playing music. Not a keeper."

I use wireless speakers to listen to my music and are pretty happy with my sound quality so I can't see why I would need to use this app. If it does effect the sound quality it is minimal in improvement and not worth me keeping taking up storage space.
