How To Improve Spotify Sound

Most Spotify users, whether in the Premium or free version, listen to music through a cell phone. Although they have improved over time, mobile phones usually don't have the best sound devices. However, it is possible to improve the sound quality of your smartphone in a very simple and effective way.

The Spotify application itself allows you to equalize the sound output on the phone, which gives you more control over sound quality.

How To Activate the Sound Equalizer On The Phone?

You can find the equalizer directly in Spotify from the Settings menu of your cell phone. Many of the recent smartphones include an equalizer option in the Sound menu. First, we recommend that you check if that is available on your device.

If not, you must download an equalizer app. Although there are many, here are the recommended few that are compatible with Spotify.

App To Equalize Sound

More equalizer apps will soon be available that are compatible for Spotify, but for now we can recommend two that are for free on Google Play.

Equalizer FX.Pro

This app is focused on sound customization. Its equalizer is very complete and intuitive for you to learn what type of sound you like most by trying various settings. You can download it here:

Precise Volume (+ EQ / Booster)

This app has a simple interface with an equalizer that includes all the necessary variables to adjust the sound to your liking. It also offers other volume control functions. You can download it here:

Configure the App With Spotify

Once the equalizer application is downloaded, you must make a small configuration adjustment to tune it to Spotify. Simply activate the Compatibility Mode option in the Sound App settings menu.

Adjust the Equalizer in Spotify

Once you have downloaded, installed, and synchronized your equalizer app, you must open your Spotify home page. Click on Settings (top right button with the gear) > Music Quality:

If you already have an equalizer app installed, an option called Equalizer will appear. Clicking on it will open the sound control panel where you can configure it to your taste. If you've never modified an equalizer before, we recommend that you try until you find the exact point you like best. Here are some small tips to get started.

The bars on the left correspond to the bass, and the bars on the right control the treble. If you want to give more strength to these high-pitched sounds, we recommend you upload these markers.
