iPhone’s built-in EQ can do only so much. If you’re audio freak, you want total control over the Equalizer or at least more presets so you can experience better sounds. Fortunately, this is one of the areas Apple decided to keep open for developers.
So we have a bunch of amazing Equalizer apps for the iPhone (and iPad). We picked five of the best with a combination of free and paid apps.
Denon Audio is actually a companion to the Music Maniac(TM) headphones. Also, it’s not actually an EQ app but it does come with a powerful EQ to help you control your music. Denon connects to the Music collection on your iPhone well and has quite a lot of controls that will keep you busy, tweaking.
Price: Free, $2.99 (In-App; you need this to use the EQ features)

Probably the closest competitor to Equ, this app is quite popular amongst audiophiles. There’s just too much in the app to list out but the key thing is that the EQ is powerful, you can import presets via email (or send them) and a terrific interface to control everything right from the app.
For about a dollar less, you get this audio player with EQ and FX built in. It’s not much if you compare it with Equalizer or EQu but it’s solid with some really clean EQ controls. The best thing about EQ 10 is that it has a very simple interface unlike most other EQ apps which are usually cumbersome.

It’s blasphemy to put EQu somewhere at the bottom of the list but consider this as balancing out the bias that EQu garners for itself. It’s undeniably the best EQ app out there. Oh wait, it’s comparable to Equalizer but then, if you’re a stickler for neat interfaces and cool features, EQu is the app you’re looking for.
On the other hand, if you’re not yet willing to shell out money for an EQ app, this should be it. But beware: you get what you pay for but EQ Player is a good start for some decent EQ-ing.
