How to Set the EQ on the iPad for Better Sound

  • MORE

The iPad’s audio quality isn’t amazing, but you can improve it by changing the EQ settings.

  1. Play a favorite track in the iPod app to use as a baseline.
  2. Press the Home button, then tap the Settings app (the music will continue to play).
  3. Tap iPod in the left column, then EQ on the right side options screen.
  4. Tap one of the 22 options—such as Bass Booster, Hip Hop, R&B, and more—to change the quality of the audio.
  5. The change will happen right away, though it might not be as evident with some choices.

    I agree, I want a generic across the board eq for my iPad, I stream music from my pc and want to eq it

    This is NOT setting an EQ for the ipad. This setting the EQ for the iPod/Music app on the iPad. There is a big difference if you are using a different app for music, streaming, video, pandora, etc no adjustment is made.
