Equalizer, also known as EQ, is a circuit or equipment used to achieve sound equalization by adjusting the amplitude of audio signals at particular frequencies. It's largely used by most online music services in order to meet different music tastes for all users.

As one of the earliest and largest streaming music services in the world, Spotify introduced its own equalizer feature back in 2014 for iOS and Android devices, letting you customize the music sound in the way you like. But as Spotify equalizer is a hidden feature, you may feel difficult to find it. Here we'll show you how to easily locate the equalizer settings in Spotify and how to use it to adjust the sound quality when playing Spotify music on iPhone, Android or Windows.
