497 equal divisions of the octave (abbreviated 497edo or 497ed2), also called 497-tone equal temperament (497tet) or 497 equal temperament (497et) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 497 equal parts of about 2.41 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 21/497, or the 497th root of 2.

## Theory

497et only is consistent to the 5-odd-limit. Using the patent val, the equal temperament tempers out 2100875/2097152, 48828125/48771072, 67108864/66976875, and 200120949/200000000 in the 7-limit; 5632/5625, 42875/42768, 43923/43904, 131072/130977, 151263/151250, 160083/160000, and 391314/390625 in the 11-limit.
