Is it me or is the iPhone's default EQ REALLY....

    ...*****. I was just listening to some tunes on my iMac and decided to sync them to the iPhone and when i put the iMac to sleep and started listening to the song on my iPhone it sounded....NOT as good to put it mildly.

    Curious is it possible to preset an EQ into a song and then sync it to the iPhone with the iPhone playing the song's preset EQ accordingly or does it just ignore it and use the the default EQ regardless?

    I have the same question about the EQ.

    My suggestion to improve your listening experience is use better earphones, the original ones don't offer you the best experience.
    Be sure that the quality of the song you're listening to is good.

    Since the default EQ on the iPhone is flat ...

    it must be you. :D

    In other words if the iPhone is not changing the music at all, logically it's the way you have the equalisation set up on your home computer that must be at fault.

    Im using the V-Moda Vibe Duos those should be/sound better than the default earbuds

    Is it simply that the iPhone ignores my EQ and still plays the song in Flat i.e. can the iPhone support custom EQ tags on songs?

    I just got those same headphones. The bass is too strong. I set the EQ to "spoken word" and they sound great now. It's an odd setting to choose, but I find that it works well...and the stock headset is just plain junk.

    Good luck!
