**153 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **153edo** or **153ed2**), also called **153-tone equal temperament** (**153tet**) or **153 equal temperament** (**153et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 153 equal parts of about 7.84 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/153}, or the 153rd root of 2.

153edo corresponds to every second step of 306edo, with 3rd harmonic falling almost exactly halfway between adjacent steps, resulting in multiple options for fifths, just like any dual-fifth systems.

Using 153edo for 2.9.21.11/5 subgroup, it tempers out 9801/9800, 40353607/40310784, and 645922816/645700815 with patent 9 and 21.
