    Hi everyone.

    I moved to the 6S from Oneplus One.

    One thing I am missing dearly: the ability to set equalizer to my liking. Sound on the Oneplus One was amazingly good! For me, running with my music is essential.

    I know there's the sound settings under Settings->Music. But this does not seem to be helping (not sure it can even be called an equalizer since it won't allow for custom settings).

    Is there any other way to set system-level sound customization? I mostly listen to Apple Music and SoundCloud, so using a dedicated music app with equalizer won't do the trick.

    Thanks so much!

    BOOM for iOS - Global Delight - is what you should try!

    Wow, I had no idea an app like this existed. I can rarely find my way around the App Store.

    Lol sorry where are my manners, thanks!

    VOX is also an app allowing you to set up your own equalizer. But some of those apps require you to store your music inside app, rather than using iTunes library directly.

    SonicMax Pro is my favourite -it uses Cowon's BBE settings.

    Personally, I've found that every option/setting other than "Default" makes music sound worse.

    This one is fantastic. It's not just stupid EQ... it also makes your headphones sound more open and less claustropobic: http://canopenerapp.com

    It's by a pro audio company that makes audio plugins (https://goodhertz.co). Their CanOpener studio plugin for Mac/PC is used by many professional musicians. This is the iOS version of that technology.

    Edit: Uhm... Their iOS app is now free, they stopped selling it for money since that one wasn't worth their time.

    I have the canopener app, too, and like it very much.

    Unfortunately, the developer states that it is "No longer supported - made available for legacy devices, only." It is also a 32 bit app, so it won't work with iOS 11.

    @jetsam That is so sad. And I didn't know that iOS 11 will block 32-bit apps. That's gonna be doom for a lot of the dead, old apps I have.
