With EQu, shape your sound to match a particular style, your mood and your acoustic environment. Subtly adjust the spectral balance to get the most out of your speakers and headphones, at any playback volume.

Whereas conventional equalizers allow you to amplify or attenuate predefined bands, with EQu you can design an extremely precise and smooth frequency response by directly manipulating more than 1000 discrete bands. EQu's linear phase design also preserves all of your music's fidelity and introduces no spatial distortion.

30-point eq curve capability, iPad preset save broken

-1 star: EQu cannot play iCloud (doesn’t show up) or DRM Music (says it’s unsupported), so Apple Music subscribers should look elsewhere. I’ll restore a star if this is fixed.

I appreciate the flexibility of this app; you can create more eq points than most other eq apps. Numeric parameter entry and sharing would be appreciated. I can’t even share with myself, so I have to set up the curves individually on all of my devices.
Also, dynamic gain would be helpful.

Update: iPad Pro crash on launch no longer happening as of iOS 11.2.5. Though the current curve is preserved between sessions (for any number of points up to 30), the app fails to save more than two custom presets. There is a workaround; you can make room for more custom presets if you delete some of the pre-built ones.

Great under the hood

This has been my go-to for years... helps less-than-perfect headphones sound like ten times their price! Not to mention overcoming mastering issues.
It’s five stars when using locally-stored tracks. But then I bought into Apple Music, and some design flaws were exposed:
It really doesn’t make sense to show me artists/albums/tracks in the app that it can’t access.
More importantly, I would be willing to re-purchase a new version that supports Apple Music. This app is THAT good.

App Stops Playing after locking or going to home screen

This app has been perfect but ever since iOS 11 and the update of this app, audio stops playing as soon as you press the home button or put the phone to sleep. Please fix this it is very annoying when you start something and it just stops after the phone sleeps. Also when you press play from the lock screen it starts to play the next song it skips forward it does not start where it left off. One other major feature is missing the ability to fast forward from the control center and lock screen controls;
