← 1956edo | 1957edo | 1958edo → |

**1957 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **1957edo** or **1957ed2**), also called **1957-tone equal temperament** (**1957tet**) or **1957 equal temperament** (**1957et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 1957 equal parts of about 0.613 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/1957}, or the 1957th root of 2.

1957edo is notable for an extremely good approximation of the 2.5.7 subgroup.

In terms of regular temperaments, as a multiple of 19, it tempers out the enneadeca, equating 6/5 to 5 steps of 19edo, while in the 2.5.7 subgroup it tempers out 281484423828125/281474976710656 ([-48 0 11 8⟩), supporting exodia, the subgroup restriction of mohajira. It also inherits its mapping of 10/7 from 103edo (which is a convergent), and equates six of this interval to 17/2, thereby tempering out S49/S50 = 2000033/2000000.
