Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad - Page 6

post #76 of 450

 

Excellent to hear, I`m just surprised to not see more head-fiers on these EQu/equalizer threads.

I know there is a fair amount of people who either don`t like apple, dislike ipods or favor another technology, but as far

as the ipod goes this is a revolutionary step.

 

I don`t even need to use my ibassoT3 amp that used to give my 5Gipod a well needed boost and rounding out , but I do

out of habit it seems and so I can get a line out. 

 

To beat a dead horse, these EQu and equalizer apps are awesome.

How would the 4G itouch with EQu compare with lets say the cowon s9/j3 ??

 

Thats the big selling point, a good built in sound :) because in all honesty an external amp is a ballache for most people.

-Also changed my sig too:)

For me, the SQ is easily the best I've heard. I like it's volume as well - allows me to drive my headphones with AUTHORITY!!! Of all my players ATM, I luv this the most - I find the sound to be clean & clear, the EQ responds immediately when you make adjustments,...you can hear as you tailor the sound.


 

@mathyhew:Just two posts above yours....................he has CowonD2 and other players as well.

Yes i saw that but it was hard to tell from his sig whether is was using LOD or the headphone jack as the DAC in the ipod is what is at question here :D

 

Because a LOD on the ipod means u can charge at the same time among other reasons. :)

I have a battery case on my iPhone 4, I'm using the HP out (I will not do an amp, that's not a "portable" solution for me), and the SQ is (IMO, YMMV) the best sounding thing I own. I favor it over all my other players SQ.

So as far as your concerned a Ipod4g with EQu has better SQ than a Cowon D2.

 

Wow. :)

Just found this thread. I have RE-ZEROs which I like, except that I wish they had more bass. The bass booster is fine BUT I've always wanted more adjustment, so EQu looks perfect.

Good to see you found this thread currawong.

 

I am a recent convert to EQu and its friend equalizer app also.

I wish a customisable EQ existed for the iPod classic...

post #85 of 450

Finally getting around to updating my 3GS phone to 4.2.1

 

Going to get this as as soon at it finishes, my PX-100ii need a slight treble boost

After my initial amazement has passed, I've realized that the Cowon D2 has a "slight" edge on the EQu app in 1 particular area,...and that's VOLUME!!! The EQ settings are both great, and I personally prefer the low end of the EQu'd iPhone, but it's still slightly low w/my HP's. Even when the "Headroom" is switched to "Loud", the D2 is still the king of driving larger, more power hungry headphones.

 

Either way you look at it, SQ wise, Rockbox, Cowon, and EQu are all pretty even when it comes to SQ nowadays. The only difference between them is the Cowon driving power. The iPod touch & iPhone all have the little (major actually) extras.

We're all waiting (im)patiently,...RB on the classic would be a file hoarders dream come true - like ME!!!

Yeah, I always find ipods volume to lack beef.

So I use an ibasso T3 and LOD with mine. very nice. Very light and portable.

 

Also to conserve power (iphones and Touch) from the usual battery hogs:,

airplane mode ON(when not using wifi).

all Spotlight functions unchecked!,

notifications off,

turn off apps I am not using.

Me, I personally REFUSE to ever carry a portable amp. Either it works on it's own, or it doesn't. The extra gear (>amp>) defeats the meaning of "portable".
