Music you purchased or synced, and music identified by iTunes Match that you added for offline play remains. Equalization (EQ): EQ settings generally apply only to music played from the Music app, but they affect all sound output, including the headset jack, AirPlay, and Bluetooth audio connections.Note:  The Late Night setting compresses the dynamic range of the audio output, reducing the volume of loud passages and increasing the volume of quiet passages. You might want to use this setting when listening to music on an airplane or in some other noisy environment. (The Late Night setting applies to all audio output—video as well as music.) Volume Limit: In some European Union (EU) countries, iPad may indicate when you’re setting the volume above the EU-recommended level for hearing safety. To increase the volume beyond this level, you may need to briefly release the volume control. To limit the maximum headset volume to this level, go to Settings > Music > Volume Limit, then turn on EU Volume Limit.Note:  To prevent changes to the volume limit, go to Settings > General > Restrictions > Volume Limit, then tap Don’t Allow Changes. Sound Check: Sound Check normalizes the volume level of your audio content.
