Get the best sound quality

Depending on whether you have a free or paid account you can have one sound quality or another, specifically in the free account you can access a maximum speed of the web player of 128 Kbits and in a premium account you can have a maximum of 256 Kbits.

This can be increased in the Android, iOS or computer app, in which the highest quality will be 160 Kbits and 320 Kbits respectively depending on whether your account is paid or not. The quality of the podcasts is lower, 96 Kbits, or 128 Kbits in the web player. As you can see, except for the podcast, you will have the best speed of the service if you install the app and, of course, in the payment account.

If you want to access the best possible speed taking into account this aspect, you will have to follow the following steps:

  1. Go to Settings (nut top right)
  2. Scroll down to Audio Quality
  3. You will surely see the automatic mode
  4. Change to the High option (or Very high in Premium account)
  5. You can do this with mobile data, WiFi or on poor networks
  6. You can do the same with downloads and video quality


Remember that, even if you put the maximum sound quality in your account, if your coverage or Internet connection is not very good, you will notice it in the final result. The music will sound better the better the connection you access. If you like your music louder at certain times, in the settings itself you can find the option to adjust the volume to make it louder.

Use the Spotify equalizer

Another thing you can do is use the Spotify equalizer, which you will also find in the account configuration options. It will allow you to enjoy music much more by enhancing certain sounds or instruments depending on the type of music that is playing at any given moment.

On Android you will find it in:

  1. Setting
  2. music quality
  3. equalizer

On iOS the path is:

  1. Setting
  2. Reproduction
  3. equalizer


Once you have done so, you will be able to choose between the different options available . With some knowledge you will get excellent results, otherwise you can try.

If you change the musical style, it is recommended to change it again to fully enjoy the music you listen to, so it is more convenient when you are going to listen to a complete album or the same style, or changing it depending on the musical needs of each moment.
