How to Get the Bass Boosted on an iPod Shuffle

Like other iPod models, the iPod Shuffle uses your computer's iTunes application to sync music and media. You can also use iTunes to apply various settings to your iPod Shuffle. ITunes makes it possible for you to edit the equalizer settings of each track in your music library. Choose between a number of built-in equalizer preset options, including "Bass Booster," to improve your listening experience.
