Almost every single mobile device, whether an iOS or an Android one, always lack this elusive audio juiciness, which makes the basses pumping, the drums banging and the tunes you love super-groovy.
And when you try to solve that problem you face a dilemma: either you go and buy fancy headphones like Beats Studio for almost $300 or… install an equalizing app. One of those – Equalizer – Music Bass Booster – has been prepared for you today by Music Hero.
An equalizer allows you to increase/decrease certain audio frequencies thus maintaining a balance between them and making the sound quality more pleasurable and clear.
This app provides you with a five-band equalizer with low-, mid-, high-frequency faders, ranging from 60 Hz to 14 kHz – not that bad for a mobile application I must say. My mark is 8.5/10.
Applying this equalizer you can:
Apart from the convenient equalizer you get:
The app is visually stylized as old-school, analog hardware which is alluring (at least to me personally). The name of the app is written in neat italics right on top of the virtual equalizer which is somewhat reminiscent of the music-hardware brand Marshall famous for its legendary guitar amplifiers.
As you go through your music feast, devouring one tasty jam after another, the sound spectrum continues to do its flashy, nifty dance perfectly synchronized to the tempo of the song. However, staring at it becomes tedious after one and a half/two minutes and I don’t know why authors of the app thought it’d be smart to pass the sound spectrum off as a super-cool advantage.
The interface is both pretty intuitive and just cute, and the faders and knobs are smooth and easy to tweak. Moreover, the changes that you make by pushing the faders reflect on the quality of the phonogram in real time allowing you to find the perfect sound you seek in a matter of minutes.
One thing you need to remember is that to exit the app for good you need to tap on the close button otherwise it’ll continue playing in the background. The score of the interface is 9/10.
You can get the app for free however you best be prepared for a tsunami of ads burying you alive. And the situation gets even worse when you realize there’s no upgrade to the pro-version. Alas.
Needless to say, you should be careful with this application since an overdosage of the aggressive low frequencies is hazardous and may lead to your eardrums getting damaged.
I should admit the app does a decent job on improving the sound on your gadget but do not expect much from it if the only way of music listening for you is through the cheap earbuds. You’ll need at least headphones to hear the difference. The score of the performance is 8/10.
The app is compatible with both platforms: Android 4.3 and iOS 9.0, compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. 10/10
Equalizer – Music Bass Booster does what it promises the best it can yet you’ll need to obtain at least some headphones to enjoy its acoustic wizardry.
