2 Android Apps to Get System Wide Music Equalizer

Ashish Mundhra

A couple of years back, the very first app that I purchased from the Play Store was Poweramp Pro. The only reason for me to go pro was the 10 band equalizer and control over the bass booster I got over my music.

Buying the app made my purchase of Monsters DNA of around US$ 200 worthwhile. But all that lasted while music was saved as an MP3 files on the SD card.

The world has moved on and we have apps like Spotify, Wynk and a lot more of them, which gives us access to a plethora of music anytime and anywhere. But all these music tracks are DRM protected and can only be played from the app itself.

Same is the case with the videos downloaded using the YouTube app.

Most of these apps don’t have the option of advanced control over music and, therefore, you cannot change the base or increase the treble and that really spoils the mood. So just so that you can make the most out of your expensive headphones, here are two Android apps that give you a system-wide control over the music that’s played on your Android.

Let’s have a look.

1. Equalizer & Bass Booster

Equalizer & Bass Booster is a global equalizer and modulates the sounds of anything that’s playing on your phone. When you launch the app, tapping on the play button will ask you to set your default player. Once the music is playing on your phone, you can return to the app to make adjustments.

At the very forefront, you will see a visualizer along with a volume button. You can play with them for a while, but the real juice of the app lies in the button that’s located on the top-left corner. Tapping on it will give you access to 5 band equalizer and along with that, you have several presets to choose from.

If you wish to, you can even create and save your own preset to use it later. The app has some ads, but one can go for the pro version to get additional features and an ad-free experience. The app is good for most of the users who love to have basic control over the music.

But if you are looking for a 10 band equalizer for complete control, we have yet another app for you.

2. Equalizer Pro (Free)

If you wish to get a 10 band equalizer, you can give Equalizer Pro (Free) a shot. The app has ads and doesn’t give any option to buy the pro version and at the same time, the name of the app is having both the keywords in it.

Anyways, here too, you can choose from presets and save a custom one.

You can also control bass booster and virtualization in the app. The app looks less polished and also doesn’t have any support for widgets when compared to the former.

Cool Tip: Controlling 10 band equalizer works best in landscape mode.

Conclusion

So those were the two apps using which you can get the global music equalizer on your Android. If you are good with the 5 band equalizer, I would prefer the first one. It has a better user interface and provides an on-screen widget to easily toggle the app on or off.

So go ahead and make the most out of your expensive pair of headphones.
