This is a paraphrase of my full EQu review at TouchMyApps
I can only state that I am 100% satisfied by this 3$ application. Two weeks ago, I wasn't as I could only navigate songs in alphabetical order out of my entire collection and I couldn't listen to songs back to back whilst using other apps.
EQu in its current form doesn't distort, (mostly) preserves dynamic range, is 100% user-editable, and simply outclasses everything stock that comes with most players. Rub your finger up or down to adjust overall gain, add hundreds of frequency plots, and altogether, rock your iDevice. Regarding dynamic range, I think anyone who enjoys the sound of Sony's EQ will be happy: it is slightly compressed, but for people who think that Sony do a good job with EQ, it is of higher quality, though results in a similar, nice-sounding soft EQ when heavily tweaked.
Why this has rocked my socks off is that my old EQ monsters: iPod nano 1G Rockboxed, hisses too much for sensitive earphones and I simply hate the Sansa Fuze, rockboxed or not. This allows me to keep my iPod touch 4G, a unit that is unequalled in clean signal, blaring music out exactly as I like.
I am not a huge EQ user, but when I find the right setting, addiction sets in.
Again, this is a paraphrase of my full EQu review at TouchMyApps
