Can You Adjust The Equalizer On Powerbeats Pro?

There is no denying that, for being such small earbuds, Powerbeats Pro are powerhouses when it comes to sound.

These fully wireless earbuds cost quite a bit, but you can find ways to maximize your experience

You might be thinking about how to do this and are led to wonder, “How do I change Powerbeats Pro settings?” Just how easy is it to do?

As it turns out, you can tinker around with the settings to an extent, which will allow you to get the most output from your earbuds. 

The way to do this, though, is to adjust the Powerbeats Pro’s audio levels from your iPhone or iPad. 

Once you get into those settings, you can toy around with the equalizer (which is often referred to as EQ) and other levels to get the sound more precisely to your liking.

Can You Adjust Equalizer On Powerbeats Pro?

When you are using your Powerbeats Pro from your iPhone or iPad, you can customize your audio settings to adjust particular frequencies and amplify soft sounds. You will be able to adjust the equalizer (EQ) through the Custom Audio Setup. There are also a few more measures you can take to maximize the sound output from your Powerbeats Pro.

As I have toyed about with settings, I have discovered ways that you can set up your earbuds’ accommodations, use Custom Audio Setup, manually adjust your audio settings, and even utilize the audiogram data from the Health app to customize audio settings.

If you, like me, have problems with your hearing or just want the sound coming from your Powerbeats Pro to reach maximum perfection, you can try some of these techniques – including adjusting the EQ on your iPhone or iPad – to get the audio quality you want.

Can you change the EQ on Beats headphones?

You can absolutely change the equalizer (EQ) on your Powerbeats Pro headphones using Headphone Accommodations in iOS and iPadOS 14 and later. 

Doing so is actually pretty simple, but you definitely need to have the latest version of iOS or iPadOS installed in order to successfully do so. 

Make sure you have the most up-to-date version installed before you begin.

Can you adjust the bass on Beats?

If your bass is sounding a little too tinny (a common complaint from Powerbeats Pro users), you can use Bass Booster under EQ in order to max out your bass quality. 

Doing so is actually pretty easy once you’ve played around in the audio settings. 

Here is how you can do it:

  1. Open up the Settings app in your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Music.
  3. Go to Playback, then tap on EQ.
  4. Tap on Bass Booster.

You can also reduce the bass this way. 

You can also tinker around with a few more bass-related settings until you get the sound you want coming out of your earbuds. 

A few other bass-boosting settings I recommend trying are Pop, Electronic, and Rock.

How do I set up custom headphone accommodations?

If you need to enhance the sound coming from your earbuds, you can customize your setup. 

This is how you can do it:

  1. Ensure that you have the most recent version of iOS or iPadOS installed on your device.
  2. Go into Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual > Headphone Accommodations. From there, turn on your Headphone Accommodations.
  3. Select the way you wish to apply your custom audio settings:
    • Turn on Phone if you want to apply your customized settings to phone calls, FaceTime calls, and any third-party video call apps.
    • Turn on Media in order to apply these settings to music, movies, podcasts, audiobooks, Siri, voicemail, and Live Listen.
  4. Customize your headphone audio settings by:
    • Using the Custom Audio Setup. (You will be able to listen to audio samples and select the ones sound the best to you. From there, you will be able to apply the custom settings suggested based on these choices you made.)
    • Using your audiogram data from the Health app.
    • Manually adjusting your audio settings.

How do I use Custom Audio Setup?

If you want to use Custom Audio Setup, here is how you need to go about it:

  1. First, you will need to reset your current audio configurations to their default settings by:
    • Going to Settings > Music > EQ. From there, tap Off to turn Music EQ off.
    • Going into Setting s > Accessibility > Audio/Visual. Next, adjust the Balance slider. The audio volume balance should be set to the center.
  2. Connect your Powerbeats Pro once you are in a totally quiet location.
    • Go into your Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual > Headphone Accommodations. Then, tap on Custom Audio Setup.
    • Instructions on your screen; follow these prompts. When they are all done, tap on Use Custom Settings to apply the custom settings the system has suggested based on your selections. You are free to switch back to the standard, default settings any time you want.

How can I use my audiogram data from the Health app?

If you want to use your audiogram from the Health app, you just need to tap on Custom Audio Setup, followed by Use Audiogram.

Headphone Accommodations will take the average of both ears and suit the left and right audio channels to that profile if you have an almost symmetrical audiogram. 

Of course, if your audiogram is asymmetrical, the left and right channels will be fit to your better ear.

Can I manually adjust my audio settings?

If you want to manually adjust your audio settings, you can do so from the Headphone Audio screen. 

You can set the tone and amplification to the levels you want them at. 

Using your current audio settings, you can tap on Play Sample to hear an audio sample. 

Then you can decide on how you want to change your settings.

If you want to adjust the audio volume balance from left and right channels, all you need to do is:

  1. Go into Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual.
  2. Adjust the Balance slider how you wish.

Closing Thoughts

Enhancing the EQ on your Powerbeats Pro is relatively simple as long as you have the most recent version of iOS or iPadOS installed on your listening device. 

You can customize the audio settings as you need in order to get the best listening experience possible. 

Listeners of all types can certainly appreciate that.
