EqualizeEverywhere Featured

EqualizerEverywhere is a recently released jailbreak tweak that makes it possible to create and activate custom equalizer presets on the fly. If you’re someone who listens to a variety of different audio types on the iPhone, and you’re looking for a way to customize sound based on the type of audio, this is a tweak that you should definitely investigate.

We’ve taken EqualizerEverywhere for a spin, and we were pretty impressed by what we found. Have a look at our video walkthrough after the jump.

After installing the tweak, you’ll find a new preference panel in the stock Settings app dedicated to EqualizerEverywhere. The preferences contain your standard kill-switch toggle, a toggle for displaying the equalizer in Control Center, a group of presets, and the equalizer itself.

EqualizeEverywhere Preferences

Users can choose to adjust the equalizer settings within the tweak’s preferences, but you’d be better off doing so from Control Center. While music is playing, swipe from right to left on the audio controls to reveal the same equalizer that’s found in the preferences. You can swipe once more to access the same list of presets as well.

EqualizeEverywhere Control Center

The tweak’s presets contain a nice helping of pre-built equalizer settings available for certain music playback situations. You’ll find settings such as Earbuds for when listening via headphones, or Techno, appropriate for when you’re listening to EDM genre of music. There are well over half a dozen different presets to choose from, and each can be deleted entirely if you deem them unnecessary.

Users have the option of adjusting the equalizer settings and then creating custom presets based off of the current adjustments. You can give your custom preset its own name, and quickly access it on the fly from the tweak’s preferences or from Control Center.

EqualizeEverywhere Presets

Although the tweak worked fairly well from my testing, I must say that I did run into an issue when streaming audio via HTML5 audio tags in a browser [This has been fixed, see update below]. HTML5 audio simply would not play with EqualizerEverywhere installed. I never encountered a problem elsewhere in my testing, but this is something that you should be aware of, especially if you often enjoy listening to HTML5 audio streams via the browser.

If you’re an audiophile, or even if you just want to have more fine-grained control over your listening experience, then EqualizerEverywhere is a tweak that’s worth your time.  It’s a little pricey at $3.00, so if the idea of having an equalizer that you can adjust on the fly is never something that occurred to you, chances are you probably wouldn’t use it enough or be interested in it enough to justify the investment.

Update: The HTML 5 audio issue has been fixed, and was fixed days after this review went live.

    When I got this a few days ago, it quickly became my favorite jailbreak tweak!

  • Alexander Gennadievich

    Is it safe to assume that it will not work in Auxo switcher interface? (I would assume so, settings are good enough) Overall it’s a great tweak, Apple should steal it as fast as possible. Why does Apple limit its equalizer only to its Music app?

    • White Michael Jackson

      it does work. just slide to the left and you will see new settings. slide once more and you will see the presets

      • Eddie Jhay

        Do you know if Auxo Legacy Edition is working with iOS 8.4 Jailbreak? Thank you!

    • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

      works flawlessly 🙂

  • highNiggaPie

    This is pretty intense

  • i Molen

    don’t buying this Tweak unless they fix the bug, Ringtone sound when received a call is terrible, even you Disable on the setting!! removed the tweak problem gone

    • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

      lol its cause you have the equalizer changed .. get it back to normal 😛 slide till u see flaten press it then check and see if your ringtone is normal

      • I think his point was this shouldn’t need to be done. The Equalizer shouldn’t even work on Ringtones and Alarms, etc. I know it’s called EqualizerEverywhere but really the only thing it should work on is music. It’s just pointless using it on any other types of media…

      • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

        true, it will have an option for that soon with that html 5 fix

  • Raul M

    Any specific equalizer for use with beats pill any audiophile out there? Or for beats headphones(Sudios 2.0) I really need a good one and I suck wit editing to sound perfect lol

    • You should take a look at CanOpener, the excellent ONKYO HF Player and
      also there was TuneShell which is not available anymore on the AppStore
      but was great!

  • White Michael Jackson

    I have been waiting for the something like this for ios devices since i bought my first ipod touch in 2007. I have soooo many knockoff equalizers in my itunes history that I gave up on.

    • TheShade247

      Same, but i have been using Equ for years now and its still the best app in my iPhone

      • BoardDWorld

        2nd that, it’s unbeatable in quality and control. The system wide aspect of EqualizerEverywhere could be useful at times though.

      • White Michael Jackson

        I have that app too. But 3 years ago I started exclusively only listening to streaming apps as I didn’t want my music taking up space on my phone anymore.

  • TheShade247

    Apple need to acquire this and put this as a feature in iOS 8

  • Francis Agbada

    Thank God for Jailbreak! Been dying to have this kind of tweak.. cheers.

  • Matt Taylor

    What’s the deal with that presets popup… Ugly is an understatement! Would love to buy this tweak but my OCD can’t deal with that popup lol

  • A long time dream came true today. Thanks a lot for the great video Jeff 😉

  • Ram4ever

    An excellent tweak But doesn’t play well with Canopener. When this equalizer is enabled Canopener doesn’t produce any difference if I change the inbuilt equalizer (pencil EQ/EQ/crossfeed)

    • rweichler

      Fixed in 1.1

      • Ram4ever

        Thanks for the quick update 🙂 Never expected a dev to reply back in IDB …

  • livingfree

    Is it just me or does it seem like the sound quality suffers when using this?

    • skirmich

      What happens is that the PRE-Amo lowers as you move the Bars so the volume goes down, if you don’t de-Select the “Auto Pre Amp” adjustment… Otherwise nope sound can only get better if you know how to EQ,

  • Is there anyway to get this app without Cydia? I have an iOS 10.3.2, and there is no Cydia for our version rt now
