Upcoming versions of our iPhone and Android apps will feature enhanced audio quality (up to 320kbps) for Premium+ subscribers, meaning incredible audio no matter where you are, along with other exciting new features.

Our updated iPhone app also introduces crossfading and an equaliser, giving you ultimate control over how your music sounds. With the equaliser you can pick from a range of audio presets that best suit the type of music you’re listening to, from rock to classical. Audiophiles everywhere rejoice!

IMPORTANT: This update will clear your synced music, so in order to listen offline you’ll have to resync your favourite albums and playlists once the update is complete. Trust us, it’ll be worth it!
