- An APK teardown revealed that the Google Pixel Buds Pro could get equalizer settings.
- The EQ could offer five different bands of sound control.
- The teardown also found several different presets to choose from.
One of the glaring omissions of the Google Pixel Buds Pro is a lack of customizable equalizer settings. But it looks like that may change in the future according to an APK teardown.
In an APK teardown of the latest update – version 1.0.474476083 – of the Pixel Buds app, people over 9To5Google discovered several references to an equalizer function.
Before we go any further, it is necessary to point out that APK teardowns only focus on ongoing features. Just because there are mentions of upcoming features found in the code lines, there is no guarantee that the company will roll out the said features.
According to data 9To5Google found, the equalizer could have five adjustable bands with volume control. These bands include a low bass, bass, middle, treble and upper treble. The layout of the equalizer may also be different from what you are used to with horizontal sliders and vertical bands – usually the orientation is vertical sliders with horizontal bands.
The equalizer can also have seven different presets including:
- Heavy bass
- Last saved
- Light bass
- Vocal boost
In addition to audio controls and presets, there also appeared to be data on a volume balance slider. This slider allows you to adjust the volume of the left or right earpiece individually.
Although these features are not active in the app, it is unfortunately possible that they may eventually come in a future update. An equalizer setting would be a great addition to our other favorite features, which you can check out here.
