Spotify Just Added a Surprisingly Exciting Equalizer to Its iOS App

Remember equalizers? You know, the little dials that used to keep your tiny boombox speakers from tweaking out at high volume but have sort of disappeared in the world of digital music. Well, they're making a comeback in the latest update to Spotify's iOS app, and I'm unduly excited about it.

Update your Spotify app now, and you'll gain access to a simple but useful new equalizer. Spotify says it was one of the service's most-requested features, so they built it. The equalizer comes with 22 presents—everything from classical to hip-hop—each of which you can customize with just six different sliders for different frequencies. The very useful "small speakers" preset is a godsend.

Obviously, equalizers never really went away. Whether you're a hi-fi stereo aficionado or just an advanced iTunes user, there are plenty of ways to boost your bass or optimize your treble on your home sound system. It's just nice that you can do it on the fly now, too. [Spotify via TNW]
