How To Bass-Boost iTunes Songs & Music in 2020

Many people wish to modify their music to make a song more bassy or tone down its harsh treble. This article will explain to you step-by-step (with screenshots) how to bass-boost your songs on iTunes using iTunes' built-in equalizer.

Hi, my name is Mike and I made this site to document all the helpful tips and tricks that I've discovered using various Apple Macs and other Apple products over the years, as well as to provide more general guides in relation to using the internet. I've been obsessed with Apple products ever since I could afford my first iPod, and am somewhat of a fanboy (you might have guessed). For me, the simply work without any fuss, issues or errors. I can rely on their products. The build quality is excellent and I even have several, several-year-old Macbooks in my wardrobe that are still humming along fine (just a bit slower).
