3920 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 3920edo), or 3920-tone equal temperament (3920tet), 3920 equal temperament (3920et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 3920 equal parts of about 0.306 ¢ each. Each step of 3920edo represents a frequency ratio of 21/3920, or the 3920th root of 2.

3920edo is consistent in the 21-odd-limit.

It is a tuning for a number of fractional-octave temperaments, such as barium, which identifies 81/80 with 1/56th of the octave. It also tunes the 80th-octave temperaments tetraicosic and octodeca, for both of which it provides the optimal patent val upwards to the 19-limit.

Besides that, it is a tuning for the 5-limit gross temperament and the laquinzo-aquadquadgu temperament, tempering out [-7 19 -16 5 = 19534128475869/19531250000000.
