iPhone / iPod equalizer app for best music listening experience - Page 2

Accudio is an vampier, it sucks 1% every two mins of just audio.

 

Other issue is....not everyone will know how HD650 or K701 will sound like, only an audiophile would know it. This app make sense only to Head-if'ers

 

all these said, I do accept Accudio is great EQ app

I've been using Denon Audio, may not have as many features as the stock iOS player like "shuffle" but the EQ is pretty nice. 

And the app is free :D

I've downloaded the Accudio and of course paid for $5.99 somehow when I use the Westone W4 profile while using my current Westone W4, the sound is even worst :-|

 

why is this so ?

Can you please share your sound settings screen here ?

 

I cannot hear good SQ using my Westone W4 and the westone 4 profile in Accudio.

In what do you say the sound is worst ? Have you tried increasing or decreasing sub-bass, treble etc............the soft flatter as much as possible the frequency response then up to your taste you adjust the rest...for example i LOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEEEE sub-bass so i increase it etc........

SQ is also about personnal taste.......

@musicinmymind that's interesting you say that because if you do a direct comparison between Accudio and the Denon app, there is absolutely no comparison as far as battery life drainage. Use the Denon app for about an hour and you'll see a massive difference in battery life. I can play Accudio for a good portion of the day at work (3~5 hrs) and I'll still have battery left for the evening, whereas the Denon app simply just demolishes my battery.

 

@Johnsantana it's possible it'll sound worse, but that's why there are settings for you to adjust them. The Denon app only allows you graphically EQ the settings whereas the Accudio app lets you have presets OR apply a custom setting which among graphic EQ they have sliders and other adjustments to really fine tune what you're looking for.

It was a mistake, I had lot of other application running in background that drained the battery. I take back my words... Accudio is fine on battery and great app, with it S4i is no longer hollow

has anyone here tried Audio Xciter? i'm owning many EQs mentioned above but right now my top list is Xciter and Accudio. I wonder if there is any experts that can examine Xciter because it doesn't seem like a normal EQ to me.

Also recommed BBE, it's preset IE setting is really good

Does anyone know if Accudio has a track limitation or file restriction? I have a Paul Van Dyk CD that's 40 tracks, but I can only get the app to recognize 2 tracks tops. I've tried them as mp3's and AAC formats and it still couldn't detect the rest of the tracks, does anyone have these issues with music using Accudio?

It could be because of DRM

Mmmmm...it could be, but I can see all 40 tracks listed in the stock music player in iOS6...? If it were the case with DRM, would it not show up either in the default music player in iOS6?
