Three touches to open the equalizer.

Most equalizers are simple and bring 5-band (such as the application of catches above), while others opt for 6, 7 or 10, depending on what the developers have included in the application (Viper4droid FX has 10, for example). The more bands the equalizer has, the better.

You can turn up the bass that is with fewer Hz, enhance the trebles with a greater number of Hz or just try the default settings that are optimized for different types of music.
