How to Enable Your Mac's Audio Equalizer

  Matt Cone       February 6, 2021

Your Mac has an audio equalizer (EQ) that allows you to adjust the sound quality of music. The Mac’s equalizer isn’t as fancy as the physical ones that allow you to manually adjust the levels, but it does have a number of presets that will dramatically improve the sound quality of the music you play on your Mac. Unfortunately, the Mac’s equalizer only changes the audio from the Music app. Audio produced by other apps won’t be changed by the equalizer.
