The equalizer has been significantly upgraded with the update and is available in the form of five horizontal sliders available: deep bass, bass, middle, treble and upper treble can be adjusted.

In the future, it will also be possible to use the app to Volume according to ear individually to be determined (source: 9to5Google). For example, the music can be set louder via one of the earbuds.
