android best equalizer settings for good sound

In you haven’t checked the first part yet, please read it. I’ve explained what DSP Manager can do and how to install the awesome application in that post. If you have DSP Manager working and read the first part of Android equalizer tutorial, then you should continue reading this post for the best equalizer settings for Android in order to get a crisp sound along with mega bass.

In this part I will focus only on the settings to get the best sound on your Android device. Starting with Dynamic range compression, this should be turned off. All new songs are compressed well and you don’t need to enable it. Enabling this even to a slight level will result in distortion. However, if you listen to music from the 70s and 80s, then this can be enabled to a moderate level. This will enhance the sound and you will notice a significant increase in the sound. Bass Boost depends upon how much bass you need and how much bass your headphones can handle. If you want beefy bass with your high quality headphones, then a moderate or an extreme bass level is perfect. However, if you have average quality headphones, then you should go for the slight option as a heavy bass would result in extreme distortion due to the low quality of the headphones.

For the equalizer settings, you can take a look at this picture and the equalizer should look something like this:

Lastly, you can choose the Virtual room effect to your liking. Some people prefer a studio sound while others prefer a live stage sound.

Another incredible app for the Android is PowerAmp which you can get from the Google Play store. Poweramp is an incredible application and if you don’t want to use DSP manager, then this is the perfect alternative. The perfect settings in PowerAmp will you give you an incredible bass along with decent treble. Here are the settings which you need to use if you want the best sound from PowerAmp.


You can increase the PreAmp but increasing it will give you a bit more treble while slightly lowering the Bass. The settings are perfect if you want to enjoy the highs and treble along with beefy bass. Basically, when the bass hits, the sound slightly reduces and then goes up again for treble.

These are amazing equalizer settings which you can play around with in order to get your own specific settings. Please share your views in comments below.
