iPhone / iPod equalizer app for best music listening experience - Page 8

post #106 of 120

An app that really effects sound stage is Rondo, it also has a motion sensor that tracks movement and changes the direction sound is coming from. Its a cool effect but I think it lowers the sound quality unfortunately. Its free so I use it sometime, not much though.

Soundfocus by Symphonic Audio Technologies is an interesting equalizer app that not only works on the itune library but also works with Spotify and it's free

Another great thread!  I'm about to buy the Hifiman RE-400 and heard of it's low bass.  So I thought I'd add an EQ app to pick it up a bit.  It appears the Accudio app recommended here has a preset which seems great.  And it was free to download.  I wonder though, some people mention paying for the app - what more would I get if I paid (although I don't even see an option for an in-app purchase).

 

Also, is anyone familiar with this app?  I pre-selected the Hifiman and my model - but everything appears set to 0 or flat.  Are all presets like this?  Or do you need to play around with the settings to your personal liking?

Have not used Accudio in ages since it was pretty flakey when I did.  It should not be all flat if you have a preselected HP.  You may wish to go to an Accudio thread and see if you are missing something.  good luck.

 

edit:  As I recall (maybe) you may not be able to see what the setting are for pre-selected headphones, they may keep that hidden.

I used to use accudio all the time (still do with the earpods) but I didn't like the sound with that app with the sennheiser momentum. Now I mostly use canopener, it has a better UI, volume adjustment by the db, and a good crossfeed function

Ah, your edit makes sense.  I suppose once I get the new IEMs, I can try it with the Hifiman pre-setting and then with another IEM pre-setting and see if I can hear the difference.  That may be a way to verify if they keep the settings hidden (or if I'm supposed to do an in app purchase to get the setting).

Great player, but EQ is only 4 bands

I'm very disappointed with Audyssey mp3 player on iPhone. I paid the full price to get the full version with all the supported headphone functions and now with the new update I have to pay an In App Purchase to buy something I already bought. This was such a great sounding app but now the developers are hell bent in robbing their customers. Not impressed.

I'm using Sidus equalizer that can save distinct preset for every song so I can tweak Rock & Trance tracks separately.

why is it so hard to make a parametric eq with unlimited bands/filters? isn't each parametric filter curve just in series with the next all using the same algorithm to do it?

Thanks, I just tried it. There is a free version now, and it includes the EQ. Unfortunately neither of my headphones were included in the database so I used the custom EQ. Would be wonderful to try one of their EQ curves some day too.

 

The interface is pretty poor, there are misspellings and even some Korean words mixed in, but my iPhone is finally listenable with these cheap portables I use and I can finally play FLAC too!

Yes, but more bands require more processing power. Sooner or later the processor won't be able to keep up with the track.
