    "I don't know why this is only second on this list. But for me, I honestly think that this is the best equalizer app that we can all get in our Android phones. I think that on this list of this music enhancing apps, this is the only one that has 12 default presets. "

    "Equalizer FX is a simple but effective equalizer for Android apps that don't necessarily have this function. It also has helpful presets that accentuate desirable musical aspects of different genres of music. I'd recommend it for people who want to calibrate different aspects of their music in order to make it sound better on small devices that inherently kind of distort audio, a little, because of their difficulty producing a lot of bass."

    "I recently switched from iPhone to Android and my old equalizer doesn't run on Android. So I downloaded this because it's free and it's pretty easy to use and has all the features I want."

    "Aside from being one of the best equalizers for Android, I think this app does excel in almost all aspect of music hearing experience that we can all get. It also has a built-in bass bosster and a volume booster. This all you cannot simply get in a free app. "

    "Although this app does not work on all platforms, such as Soundcloud, and has spam like advertisement that can be annoying. This does make the bass on any song extremely powerful and makes a difference in sound quality with both speakers and headphones. The visualization of the music is a cool, extra feature as well. Thumps up!"

    "What a great equalizer for Android phones! What I like is the VU meter, aside from the equalizer itself. It accurately tells whether the sound comes from left or right."

    "Music Volume EQ + Bass Booster allows me to setup my own custom mix for listening to music, watching movies or even playing games. When I need to boost certain aspects like the treble or bass it is just a quick slide of a button away. I was really surprised by how many options there were for customization."

    "If you have an Android phone and want to be able to control how your music sounds, it would be worth checking out Music Volume EQ + Bass Booster. It allows you to tweak the audio setting to get the sound just right on your smartphone."

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

An equalizer is a device or a program that allows the balance between soundwave frequencies to be adjusted. It adjusts the loudness of specific frequencies of sound, “cutting” and “boosting” them to get the best possible acoustic experience. Equalizers are used to customize how audio will sound like in specific places with specific configurations. For example, for a room that doesn’t respond well to bass frequencies, the equalizer can be used to boost the loudness of the bass frequencies to “equalize” the sound. Equalizer settings are also fixed for different genres and songs. Early equalizers were huge machines inside recording studios, but nowadays it can fit into smartphones, as there are dozens of equalizer apps online.

DID YOU KNOW?

A Twitter user by the name Hisagi claims to have found the perfect equalizer settings for iTunes. Nicknamed “Perfect,” the values on the equalizer must be set, from left to right, as +3, +6, +9, +7, +6, +5, +7, +9, +11, and +8. They claim that this custom setting improves the sound quality of any song, regardless of the song genre and the speakers used. Reviews for Perfect rave about how it does make the sound quality better for every song, but professional audio engineers state that there really isn’t a catch-all equalizer setting. It still very much depends on the speakers and the song itself. Intrigued but don't have iTunes because you're not an iPhone user? Here's a tip: You still can see whether "Perfect" really can live up to the billing with the hundreds of Android equalizers in the Google Play store!

    "There are better ones out there, but you have to pay for them. This will do the job but it runs constantly in the background and in your notification tray taking up space while also draining your battery. Hopefully that gets fixed soon. Also ads of course because it's free."

    "10 Band Equalizer is a pretty popular app for Androids, so I decided to give it a try. It's not the most user-friendly app out there. For one, it's tiny so if you have fat fingers, you'll struggle to use some of the controls. Other than that it's fine."

I use wireless speakers to listen to my music and are pretty happy with my sound quality so I can't see why I would need to use this app. If it does effect the sound quality it is minimal in improvement and not worth me keeping taking up storage space.
