Ipad video - sound settings/EQ - can it be done?

Just copied a music video onto my Ipad to watch on the plane in a few weeks, but the sound through my headphones is tinny with little bass. However, music can be improved by using the eq setting available, but no such option appears for video's. Is there any other way of adding bass to music videos on the Ipad?:smashin:

I'm not 100% sure but II think the EQ settings are system-wide on the iPad audio...meaning if turned on they're active for all audio from any apps.

Hmm, tried max treble followed by max bass for a music track and each time reverted to the video to try and see a difference but couldnt, so U dont think so....thanks for the reply though.

Sounds like you need better headphones! Are you using the stock iBuds??

Seriously, if you want an absolutely FANTASTIC sound for a daft daft price £29.99...

and get a headphone amp (£19)....

I PROMISE you, you will never look back and will hear things in music that you have never heard before.

The headphones in particular are just bizzarely good for the price.

I didn't suggest different headphones as I thought that would be stating the obvious...everyone knows the stock earbuds with most mobiles/mp3 players are built to a price and generally rubbish.
The OP gave the impression he was quite happy with them listening to music, his problem was when playing videos he's just copied to his iPad.

My headphones are Sennheiser cx300's with upgraded Comply foam T400 ear tips - so its not the headphones - and I've got that very headphone amp - the FiiO E5. Music through my (admittedly ageing) IRiver mp3 player is spot for me - just cant get the same bass from the vid through the Ipad.........
