Sorry, I don't know of a phone version of the equalizer.

Thanks for the reply. There are any number of EQ apps but I think they eat battery.

Doh! I didnt realise that EQapps dont work in Spotify. But...I've discovered that there is a hidden EQ in Spotify!!! Primitive but works. Accessed by doing an anti clockwise circular swipe in the center of the screen. Seems hit and miss knack to getting the motion right. There are YouTube vids. I thought they were a wind up but it works. This seems totally bizarre !

You can change the quality on spotify, but only if you go premium. With premium, you can get 320 kbps, which is quite good.

I've only ever managed to bring the eq up once on the iTouch ...!

If you want an equalizer on Spotify, try equalify. It's pretty good!

(Most of them in 24bit/96kHz) Today I did a comparison of audio quality. I switched between Spotifys highest setting, 320 Kbps Mp3 and 24/96 FLAC on the same album. I listened to Hello Troll by Helge Lien Trio. Spotify link: http://open.spotify.com/album/7uj2x11XMDZ0IkmooASH7M (That is a award winning album for great sound.) What shocked me was that I wasn't able to hear any difference at all. At least in the beginning. When I began listening to the faintest details - like in the echo of the percussion and the delivate sounds of base strings, I could make out some small differences. But it might just be my imagiantion.

My conclusion is that I'v wasted a lot og money on high-res files. At least on those albums that are available on Spotify.

Hi Eide

I have Spotify premium, and just wanted to say thank you for recommending the Helge Lien Trio!! 

Enjoying the music very much. Wow.

I totally agree the sentiment of becoming an 'explorer'. I guess I'm a case in point
