Equalizer for Spotify Android [No root]

The EQ option in Spotify is hidden for many Android phones, mainly because the app itself doesn’t come with an equalizer and resorts to the system’s EQ.

Those Android phones that come with built-in with an equalizer are safe but, those that don’t have it are in for trouble, but fear not, you’re just a 3rd-party app away from EQing your tracks on Spotify.

There is a number of Equalizer apps in the Google Play Store that does the trick, but most of them don’t work, let’s show you the best spotify equalizer app we’ve tried so far:

Precise Volume (+ EQ/Booster) (Free+, Google Play) →

Once you’ve installed Precise Volume let’s tick some boxes to make it compatible with Spotify. Firstly you need to enable the equalizer, afterward tap on the gear icon and tick the ‘Compatibility mode’ box, and that’s it, you have an equalizer for Spotify.

Equalize Spotify to your liking

If you have never set up your equalizer because you have not found it necessary or perhaps you didn’t want to mess your music app, then you probably haven’t experienced Spotify to the fullest.

To equalize the music on Spotify you just have to do the following:

  • Open the application settings by tapping the top right gear.
  • Slide down and locate the ‘Music Quality’ group.

Three touches to open the equalizer.

Most equalizers are simple and bring 5-band (such as the application of catches above), while others opt for 6, 7 or 10, depending on what the developers have included in the application (Viper4droid FX has 10, for example). The more bands the equalizer has, the better.

You can turn up the bass that is with fewer Hz, enhance the trebles with a greater number of Hz or just try the default settings that are optimized for different types of music.
