    I have a JBL speaker that I use mostly to listen to podcast, but I would like to get a more "clear voice" sound out of it because I use it specifically to listen to podcasts.

    Currently it sounds like a movie theater, I think it has a lot of "bass". Is it possible to fix this? I stream from my iPhone.

    Is this like a JBL portable bluetooth speaker? If not, what is it?

    There are EQ presets built into the iPhone that can be found in the music settings. I'm pretty sure they filter all audio signal, not just music... but as I'm typing this, now I'm questioning myself. Try it and report back. :D

    I'd probably try bass reducer first, maybe vocal booster. It's probably muddy in the 90-150Hz area (if it's a portable speaker) and either of those reduce that range.

    it is JBL Flip 4. There is Vocal Booster and Spoken Word.
    Is this system wide or Apple Music specific? I use a 3rd party podcast app.

    Yeah, I was trying to say I didn't know if it was global or not. However, I just tried it with the Apple Podcast app, and it didn't sound like it was filtering the audio.


    So, as far as I know, there is no way to do a global eq of system audio on an iOS device without jailbreaking it.
