How to Adjust Music Playback on Your iPhone

How to Adjust Music Playback on Your iPhone

Within Settings, music playback can be adjusted to get the most out of your headphones and provide the best sound regardless of your surrounding environment. This means changing the EQ which adjusts the frequencies of sound as you perceive them. For instance, if you have a hard time hearing bass, you would increase the lower frequencies with bass booster. Or, if you’re listening to rock music, there’s an EQ option for rock.

To adjust music playback, open Settings. Select Music.


Scroll down to the Playback section and tap EQ.

Here you have many options, from acoustic to classical.


If you’re not sure which option to select, pick a song you like and select varying options to see how it affects the sound; choose the one you like best.
