Nokia’s custom audio equalizer gets pictured for Windows Phone 8

Nokia's custom audio equaizer for the Lumia 820

Just this morning we reported on Nokia’s exclusive Dolby Headphone system coming to their new Lumia Windows Phone 8 lineup. The technology would be used to augmented and enhance the native Windows Phone capabilities, giving users a great music experience.

As it turns out, video of the app already exists and was demonstrated in New York. We snapped a few screencaps of the app in action and here is what we can tell you..

  • It has an adjustable 7-channel equalizer
  • 18 Presets including bass, dance, etc

Not too shabby as many users have been asking for years for an adjustable equalizer for audio fine-tuning. Along with Dolby’s patented technology for acoustic manipulation, we can expect the Lumia 820 and 920 to pump out some excellent tunes.
