Default Bluetooth audio equalizer settings

I picked up a Jawbone Big Jambox to stream bluetooth audio. In the Play Music app, the equalizer setting redirects to a system equalizer which seems to offer only wired and handset speaker settings. I see no way to adjust bluetooth audio. Play Music on my Nexus 7 still uses the equalizer that comes with Play Music and it works fine.

Do I need a third party app to EQ bluetooth audio?

I can confirm that the only settings in the stock equalizer are wired and speaker, and neither work with my Bluetooth buds. Might want to try something like this...

did you ever find anything that works for bluetooth? that equalizer app didn't work i think because we don't have an music effects settings tab in witch to activate it.

that's the one i tried. how did you get it to work? i couldn't enable it from settings, and any changes made in it didn't seem to change the music sound

edit: actually, it seems that it works for the little sample track that's included with it, and it does work over bluetooth, but it has no effect on Pandora audio

I have only used it with Google Music so I don't know about Pandora.
