REVIEW: “After half an hour with the app I had a noticeable improvement to my score, but I was also thinking in much clearer terms too!” -Tim Webb, www.discchord.com

REVIEW: "hearEQ…makes the experience of ear training enjoyable enough to seem like fun. [It's] a great educational tool and well worth its almost negligible price." -Tom Flint, "Sound on Sound": The World's Best Recording Technology Magazine, July 2014

TESTIMONIAL: “This handy app is one of the greatest tools I've seen for helping you hear exactly how EQ adjustments affect your sound. Wish I would have had this when I was first learning how to mix live sound.” - James Wasem, www.GreatChurchSound.com

REVIEW: “The principle behind hearEQ is beautifully straightforward…even with a little repetition, things do start to improve and I suspect if you were to build some hearEQ into your daily musical routine, you would soon reap some positive benefits.” -John Walden, www.musicappblog.com

For sound engineers, musicians, and other audio lovers, knowing how to use an equalizer, or EQ, can transform the quality of your sound—whether you’re mixing a recording, a live event, or simply want the best from your home stereo. If you can EQ, you are a powerful person!

Select a song from your device, experiment with different EQ settings, then get training! Our short, customizable training exercises for iPhone or iPad let you test and develop your EQ skills on your very own tracks.

hearEQ is a simple app with a powerful promise: if you learn how each frequency band sounds—like which frequencies make a track boomy or crystal clear—then you can make equalization work wonders for your sound. hearEQ makes that learning happen.
