Having recently switched from iTunes to Spotify for all my music, it baffled me to discover the Mac app doesn’t come with an equalizer. Is no one at Spotify giving a fuck about, you know, sound?
So, yesterday I searched for a solution that would work with Spotify.
eqMac2 is a free and Open Source equaliser for the Mac. Yep, for the Mac: the app will let you adjust the sound system-wide, not just in Spotify.
Once started, it quietly sits in the menu bar.
I’ve just started using it, so there is not much I coudl tell beside the fact that so far it’s wroking well. It comes with a set of pre-defined settings but you can easily create and save your own. Which is neat.
The app itself is lightweight and doesn’t seem to be intrusive at all. Kudos to its dev(s).

Not working with Big Sur.
Thx for the info.
I used it on my Mac for Spotify Equalizer. It is indeed useful. Thanks for sharing. I list the operation steps in this guide. If anyone needs it, just have a look. https://www.audfree.com/spotify/how-to-use-spotify-equalizer.html
Not on Big Sur
Are there other recommendations for Spotify equalizers? I am using EqMac 2 now but it has no built-in Spotify integration. I have to use AudKit Spotify music converter to convert Spotify music: https://www.audkit.com/spotify-music-converter.html
In fact, you can directly use the audio equalizer on Spotify. If you don’t know how to, you can read more at https://www.tuneskit.com/spotify-music-tips/how-to-use-spotify-equalizer.html. By the way, by using TunesKit Spotify Music Converter, you can download offline Spotify music with a free account.
it took some finesse on the instillation process (i ended up having to remove it and install it again), but i was able to get this to work beautifully on big sur 11.3. if you have the patience to make this work, it’s a great option for novices like myself.
