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!
Neutralizer is an app that focuses more on an individuals hearing ability and range, then, makes adjustments to the sound accordingly. In this way, the app ensures that the sound is unique to the listener. This alone makes it a good and unique Android equalizer app to try out.Apps
