Hello,

is it possible to add a GLOBAL highpass/lowpass filter eq that ramps up the low-end/high-end frequencies?
Doing this globally would mean I could use Tidal, Spotify, Fiio Music or whatever player I want to have the same experience.

PowerAmp does this and it is reeaaaally good if you don't overuse it. The problem is: using Tidal which do not have any EQ functionality is often unpleasing when you can't control the frequencies to your desire.

What PowerAmp says aboute these knobs:

"Bass and Treble are wider Low pass and High pass filters - the same as on some hi-fi equipment.

Bass is 0-100hz, treble is 10000hz+. These are standard ISO frequencies for bass/treble.

Bass and Treble are independent from Eq knobs, these are 2 extra bands. Also they can't/don't reduce level of their frequencies - 0% means no change of sound at all."

Kind regards

Hi Kajij,

I haven't used PowerAmp in ages but I assume that is the PA EQ in your screen shot. If you go to settings in the M11 and scroll down to Equalizer then look at the bottom of the screen you will see a row of genres such as rock classical jazz, etc. In the middle of these is one that says "user" where you can set whatever you want then recall this later.

First, turn on the equalizer using the switch at the top right. If you click the reset button it will set everything back to the defaults. Slide the row of genres left or right until you have "user" selected in the middle then adjust the gain sliders up or down in the frequency bands you want to raise or lower until it sounds the way you want. When you don't want this adjustment just turn the switch back off or select a different genre.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

no i typically leave the EQ settings flat, and ONLY dial the bass knob up a little bit.
The dashed red line i drew was the bass knob adjustment to the flat signal
The EQ settings above (this screenshot is not from me but from PowerAmp in the Google Appstore) do not matter to me.

I have never ever achieved a lowfrequency boost using an EQ that sounds as good as using the bass knob of PowerAmp. It is literally impossible to get the same adjustment when you have only 2-3 Bands in the low end using EQs.

Kind Regards

I also use PowerAmp and I think these settings (bass and treble knobs) are great. Actually, the whole EQ is way better than Fiio's. I hope Fiio will implement some better ideas in their app in the next update

I hope so. We will also report to the engineer for comparing the EQ in other apps.

Best regards

We haven't got the feedback about that from the engineer. We will try to report for you again.

Dear friend,

You could try the EQ function in other app instead if the EQ in FiiO Music app fails to meet your need currently.

The problem is that other apps not always have EQ's built-in as well (like tidal).
