Adjust EQ on my IPOD nano

I can't seem to be able to adjust the eq on my IPOD nano. I want to turn the bass boost up, but I don't know if I have to have EQ turned on or just turn the bass boost on. Nothing I do seems to make a difference.

The EQ does not have a on off switch. Just chose what you want it to be by clicking on it. If the problem still occurs refresh your ipod by hold the menu and center button at the same time, then try again.

How do i adjust the EQ on the Eclipse 180G2


These answers are not even related to the problem. He wants to customize the equalizer, which is *clearly* an option. However, our Eclipse 180g2 players are not allowing us to switch bands, so we can only adjust the first bar of our equalizer.

How do we switch bands and fully adjust the equalizer?

First thing I'd do is compare the sound coming from your MP3 player to the sound of the same songs playing from your computer speakers, to eliminate any possiblility of the audio files being at fault (I realise you haven't altered them yourself but they could be faulty at source)

Then check the graphic equaliser in your player and see what the current setting is. Most audio devices these days come with a range of presets and these often include a karaoke setting so I'd check thats not been toggled by mistake.

Then have a play with your EQ settings to see if you can bring the vocals back up in the mix, vocals tend to lie in the 1-2kHz range of the audio spectrum so give it a boost in this region. You might also want to try cutting the bass end, too much bass energy in a mix can steal your headroom and lead to parts dropping out unpredictably like this. N.B. if your player only offers EQ presets rather than a proper hands on EQ then look for presets with names like Mid boost or Bass cut, even a general POP preset should be OK, just avoid things like Dance, Hiphop and the like.

My ipod nano has songs but no sounds


Step 1:
Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.

Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through Apple.com support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.

My Video ipod has poor quality sound. Kinda lacks bass.


If you've messed with the EQ settings and it still sounds horrible you may want to have the jack/hold switch assembly replaced. You can get a jack/hold switch assembly on eBay for around $7 for your model of iPod.

I want to know what an User EQ is?


Most Audio devices will allow you to adjust how the music is played. an EQ is just something that can increase or decrease audio Frequencies. there are usually preset EQ levels that will make Jazz, Classical, Pop music sound better. this is done by increasing the High notes or increasing the low notes to give you more of a bass sound. User EQ settings allow you to manage the frequencies more to your liking. If you want to here the high notes better or adjust the middle to hear the vocals better then you can increase those levels. Or if you love your bass sounds then you would increase the lower frequencies to give your music more boom.

well it shouldnt play the first song in the folder. it should automatically play the song where you left off. and when you are changing the EQ, make sure that you are pressing in the selector key. (the key at the bottom to the right of the volume control keys) as it may take a while to adjust to your volume settings

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod sufficient?


Hrm..... This is a tough issue. I have experienced this as well. I can't really solve the problem, I can only share what I have done personally to deal with this. Hope this helps. I have settled on: 1. Leave the iPod's EQ on default and don't change it. 2. Change certain songs that must have EQ help individually. 3. Set the maximum volume setting on the iPod to the highest setting. 4. Assess where and how I listen to music on my iPod and plan to get headphones that work with my listening style. 5. Get better headphones. They don't have to be expensive to produce good sound quality. 6. If you connect it to a speaker dock or a stereo system use it's built in EQ/DSP.
