In addition, there's a Small Speakers setting – handy if you're relying on your device's own sound output? Or, if your tastes are more precise than the 22 settings, you can adjust the six frequency sliders.

According to reports, Spotify's vice president of product said the introduction of the equaliser function was motivated by the number of requests from users for it – and the service was clearly happy to oblige.

The update has already started rolling out to Spotify's iOS app.
